A few posts ago, I had talked about motivation and how hard it is to get back into routine when you have fallen ill or just needed to recover from any injuries that you may have succumbed. Who knew that a few weeks later, I would be back on that wagon again rehabbing a different injury(?) and trying to keep that motivation mojo going.
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome in a nutshell is basically my shoulder, neck, chest and back causing so much compression that blood flow and circulation is lacking in my right arm. Hence the reason my arm has been very weak when trying to do yoga, or any exercises. I have come to find that writing is difficult and even typing feels awkward. When I have been going on my runs, my arm goes numb, which has occurred before but now it is more frequently. So back to my Physiotherapist I go for new exercises.
I find that not being able to do as much is hard for me.. I am the type of person that likes to keep going and even though I am still going and what not, it just isn’t as fast paced as I would like which leaves me feeling bored. In the meantime, I do my exercises, get in some light runs, and decided to try an IG yoga challenge.
I generally have a hard time doing challenges. I think the biggest problem is keeping up everyday and also not knowing if I am doing the pose correctly. I also dislike taking photos of myself mostly because I feel very self conscious sharing what I am practicing. Worried that my posture is off or it doesn’t look right but, I have decided that if I don’t post, I won’t get criticism back to help me.
