This is what Monday was like:
Bossy Smurf Works Out with Animal Muppet
We hadn’t started doing anything yet, I was just walking around to get in position.
Trainer D: Your breathing is ALL wrong.
Me: Seriously?!?!? Get away from me.
Trainer D: NO chest breathing.
Later, in Coach R’s Neighborhood
Coach R: How was your weekend?
Me: Other than the excruciating pain?
Coach R: (chuckle)
A couple weeks ago, at home:
Me: (taking my blood pressure bc it’s been too high lately and my PCP wanted a log)
Dad: How is it?
Me: [mumble mumble]
Dad: See, if you just sit there and breathe deeply from your diaphragm, it will go down when you take it again.
Me and Mommy: Ummmm….I don’t think you’re supposed to do it that way.
(Daddy just keeps on breathing deeply and taking his BP until he gets a number he likes)
I ❤ Recovery. Seriously, I do – I’m not being facetious. It’s often a complete riot, and I am fully cognizant of the fact that it’s a privilege to get better.
Still, I will say that the past several days have been rough . So today you get to look at this beautiful picture. It lifts my spirits 🙂
