Flex Friday – Back

This is an EMOTIONAL flex pic to post…

See, there was a time when not only were my back/shoulders not muscular, but they were in PAIN. Two back to back accidents where I was rear ended had them fragile and weak.

At one point, it was painful to even carry a purse, and I have never been the type to carry a heavy purse loaded with everything but the kitchen sink, but it was painful to even have a small purse with just my wallet and cell phone in it.

And if you have ever had a back/shoulder injury, you know how it affects EVERY part of your body, so all of me was becoming a pile of weak mush. I almost didn’t even accept Rebecca’s invite to her Challenge Group, citing my back injuries and how I was still having pain and spasms, even several years removed from the accidents.

But I said YES. I modified HEAVILY, but I kept going. If something caused actual pain, I eased up a little, but I kept moving on a regular basis.

As I strengthened my CORE, I strengthened EVERYTHING, so my back spasms CEASED, the pain SUBSIDED for the most part (still have the occasional day where my lower back is a little tender), and I got stronger and stronger.

And so here we are today – I regularly complete intense programs with no pain. I have some muscles, and some definition. I feel strong.

And I can truly say, when I was in the throes of feeling weak and in pain, I TRULY never thought the day would come where I not only FEEL strong, but I can SEE evidence of my strength and how far I have come, too.

Don’t let your current circumstances keep you from starting – the name of the game is modifying until you don’t have to anymore. I speak from experience; I am living PROOF.

Shift Shop Saturday!

Y’all! A new program is available with Beachbody – I have done the Sneak Peeks and it looks awesome!

I am excited to give this one a whirl – three short weeks of progressing from basic 25 minute workouts to advanced 45 minute routines – all while honing my nutrition for optimal results? JUST what I needed after some NOLA indulgences! *wink*

It’s great for all fitness levels. If you have a lot of weight to lose, Shift Shop will be your kickstart to fitness. If you’ve spent some time away from your regular routine, trainer Chris will lead you through a fitness tune-up. It’s perfect for anyone who wantst to jump-start their regimen.
