Pain Days

Friday, June 12, 2009

I hate these days.

That's such a negative outlook, isn't it? But I do. Days when the things I want to do are difficult (or near impossible) to accomplish because simple movement is the last thing my body wants to do?

So I find things to do on those days that don't require physical effort, and gently push through my Fitness minimums so I don't break patterns that I'm working so very hard to establish. That's a key for me. If I miss a day and rationalize it, I'm less likely to force myself to be good in the future. If I push through a rough spot to meet minimums, that sets a precedent that I'm less likely to talk myself into ignoring.

So, meds, hot/cold therapy, physical minimums, and a One Day at a Time attitude. I can't make the pain disappear, but I can have a positive outlook in how I let it affect my progress.
