2 Weeks ago, I decided I need to take a break, just focus on resting my body and letting it heal to see if it would make a difference. I honestly can’t remember the last time I took 2 entire weeks off!! I only did yoga and walked.
During the 2 weeks, I discovered that the reason I was feeling so crappy (with tanked adrenals) was because I had been exposed on our vacation in Breckenridge. We stayed in large family home that we found out had pipes that had burst the year before. Yes, I am still THAT sensitive. How frustrating!! It just means my body is not totally healed from the mold yet. But it will get there. 😉
Taking the 2 weeks off, other than just allowing my body to rest, did nothing else for me. Yes, I did do a LOT more yoga than I would have ever done and I actually didn’t mind it. But I didn’t feel my body “healing” any quicker.
I am sure I have posted this before, but I believe it is so true! Our minds play such a huge part in not only what we believe but also in how we feel. After I was told I was “sick” I believed I was sick. I felt like crap, I was tired all the time, I had no energy. BUT it was so much worse because I kept telling myself that I was “sick”.
A perfect example of our minds being in control, is my cousin Sarah who is fighting cancer. She could just tell herself that she is “sick” and lay in bed all day and do nothing. BUT she has refused to give up and has committed to doing 1000 burpees, all during her cancer treatment! That is determination and control over the mind for sure!! I am super impressed with her!!
So no more for me. I am done being “sick”. I am now healthy! I am happy! I am making progress and doing what makes me feel good! Call it determination or stubborness, I’ll claim both!!
I have had goals that I wanted to achieve for years now. I am not going to sit back and wait until I “feel” better to make them happen. I am going to DECIDE NOW IS THE TIME!! I will still listen to my body and if it’s tired, I will rest. But if I feel good, I am going to push through and reach those goals. I will work to find all the answers I need to get back to 100% health. No one will be able to stop me other than myself and I have already made the decision to not let that happen. 🙂
