Swimming Towards The Finish Line

– I know that my body is miraculous
– I am grateful for all the hard work my body does to support my dreams
– It has taught me to stop throwing back my old self and accept my body as it is now and be grateful for bringing me this far
Affirmations that are a part of my daily practice. I choose to release my fears today and hit the pool 🏊‍♀️ for the first time since my water therapy in the warm pool while at the neuro rehab
🔖
The challenge was to beat the fear of the cold intolerance that cause burn, the shocks and pain from the peripheral nerve damage. But I have been preparing for this day mentally and needed to push myself to build the muscle strength in my leg and arms to get them stronger and just walking is not enough. I am not going to lie, it hurt like never before, but at least this pool is lukewarm.
Water is my best bet since its low impact, supports my back and I don’t have to worry about the weight of my body on my spine when in water
