Even though I have been in remission for almost a year I still deal with the aftermath of this disease and it shows up mainly in weak joints.
And with that comes lost mobility. 😏
And I have not been able to fully extend my left arm in months. No pain or swelling just stiff.
But we are now in the final stretch at school before summer break and things be craaazy around here so I took a few days off from the gym.
Not a good idea. 😳😩 I woke up this morning with one swollen angry elbow joint 😩
But to the gym I went and do ya know I wasn't there ten minutes before the pain and swelling went down and it was no longer warm to the touch 🙌🏻🙌🏻 Pretty sure there is truth to the statement " A body in motion STAYS in motion." But I am also glad it was leg day 👌🏻😂 And since it was leg day can we take just a minute to focus my quad... This is photo was taken a year ago and shows just a glimpse of how bad my muscle atrophy was 😞
The last two photos were from TODAY and just three months into being able to build that muscle again.
Don't EVER underestimate your body y'all.
Because I promise you if you allow it it WILL accomplish some pretty INCREDIBLE things! 👊🏻❤️
