It’s a blessing & a curse sometimes...
During my cancer treatment I’ve spent a lot of time on my own, at home, in chemotherapy, in hospital, even just day to day shopping. On occasion I needed to just be alone, for example during chemo when I had to wear the cold cap, I just had to huddle up & not talk to anyone to even cope with the freezing temperature of my head. On the first days of recovery after chemo when I felt so terrible that I couldn’t bare to talk to anyone at times.
Then there were other times, when I desperately needed someone to talk to, company just to keep my mind from playing tricks on me, fearing I might die, fearing the cancer spreading, feeling every ache & pain & trying not to be paranoid. On those days, solitude was the devil on my shoulder.
Today, 3 years, almost 4 years on I still feel the same. Some days I crave alone time because the fears never go away and I don’t wish to burden my loved ones with them, so I retreat, try to get my head together & come back stronger again. I don’t really want to be alone with my fears but I also know that I have to be because I don’t want to inflict those fears on my family or friends. It’s so difficult to explain but that’s probably also why I love & crave the gym so much... it’s not the physical aspect so much, although that helps to keep the fear of weakening away, it’s the mental aspect of alone time & keeping my mind strong.
Sitting here a few days ago, looking at this gorgeous beach alone, I reflected on how far I’ve come, took a lot of deep breaths, wished I had a book to read, then got back in the car to return home, return to the gym, return to routine & keep looking for the shimmer in life. It’s all I can do 💗

Anzeige| Guten Morgen ihr Süßen! ☀️😘 SORRY für dieses qualitativ miserable Foto - ich habe es aus einem Story-Video gescreenshotet 😂✌🏼
Und da wäre ich auch genau beim Thema, weshalb ich es überhaupt poste! Und zwar, hab ich gestern in meine Story mein Rentner-OK-Training reingeladen (nach 2 Wochen Trainingspause wegen Verletzung!).
Mich würde interessieren, ob EUCH sowas interessiert, inspiriert und ggf. sogar hilft?! 💪🏼
Sollte das so sein, und euer Feedback positiv ausfallen, dann werde ich gern öfter mal mein Training für euch aufnehmen.
Wenn nicht, dann spare ich mir die Mühe und konzentriere mich lieber vollkommen auf mein Training! 😬🤷🏼‍♀️💪🏼(das alleine Filmen ist schon ein kleines Hindernis)!
Also lasst mich bitte wissen, ob ihr gern mehr davon haben möchtet oder eben nicht! 🤗
Ansonsten wünsche ich euch jetzt einen fantastischen Start in den Tag und lasst es euch gut gehen! 😘

I used to browse social media or just reflect on my friends and families' lives, the ones who I felt were successful and I would feel kind of lost. It was never about jealousy, I'm not that kind of person. I'm always happy and supportive of others. Especially when it was evident that they put in a lot of hard work. And I LOVE individuality. I love different and weird and self-expression in any form. But for me it had always felt like I was struggling to find my way. Jumping from this place to that. From one thing to another. Not focusing and still a bit unsure about some of my choices. After having one of many conversations with my sister @christinenferguson, she made me realize that everyone's journey is different. Although some have similar goals, the path we take to get there and the timeline is different for each of us. I had to stop "comparing" the fact that 'at my age' I still hadn't accomplished the things I wanted. I am so much more focused on what "I" want now that the thoughts I used to have has evaporated. I look at others and still feel happy for them. I see them doing their thing on their own path and I can admire that and lovingly turn my attention back to my own journey unfolding, beautifully and uniquely, tailor made for me. I am writing my own roadmap. And with the focus and clarity that gets better with each passing day, well, I find the future more exciting now. No one has to love what I do, how I do it and how I chose to express myself. If what I share brings inspiration, entertainment, incites deep introspection or simply puts a smile on your face, then I'm good. Giving back is a part of my generous spirit and knowing I can impact others in a positive way brings me joy. But in the end, the only person that needs to truly enjoy this journey is me. And I intend to keep doing just that! My way.

Strength training produces very specific effects. Depending on how it is performed factors such as bar speed, load, contraction type, or range of motion can be manipulated to impose specific demands on the body which will result in a specific adaptation.
.
It is paramount that you identify the specific variables that are optimal for increasing your success in your chosen endeavor.
