Made it through a very mixed day with more grace than I thought was possible. While two of the tasks were incredibly difficult, I was able to get through them. I am grateful for that, but they certainly pulled at my heartstrings.
The bonuses for the day were threefold. I had my beginning 12-week appointment with Melissa at the Y this afternoon (which is always a blessing when I get to see her), and got to meet a lovely woman named Edie (who was job-shadowing Melissa for the day). The conversations and program set-up work was both deep and invigorating. I am excited to see what I can accomplish in the next 12 weeks.
The third bonus for the day is that I got to have my weekly training appointment with Ross Gilbert, who always inspires me to do my very best at whatever task he places before me. While my right shoulder my not be quite ready for push-ups, it worked well enough for all the other challenges. I feel positive about how my session went and rewarded myself with some pool time and a long, hot shower!
Now it is time to replenish my reserves with some warm, healthy food, plenty of water, and maybe something covered in dark chocolate...
