WOOHOO!! I made it to the ninth day. I am so proud of myself right now.
Today, rather than stretch beyond the bounds of physics, I decided to do a small meditation session followed by light stretching. I spent 20 minutes trying to find peace of mind and hearing my stomach accuse me of treason, I think I finally feel like I am doing this thing right.
The best news of all is that I can touch my toes now. I don’t think you understand how great that is for me. I have not been able to reach my toes in years! I can now feel my sweet little nubs. 🙂
I know I am not the best at meditation, and my mind finds it hard to shut up or follow a single line of thought before it goes flying off to look at squirrels, but I did an excellent job today. I didn’t let my inability to focus prevent me from trying my best to be calm and in the moment. A negative aspect would be that I could feel all the pain that I was ignoring. As a result, I may have ended up with a clear mind for a few minutes, but my Fibromyalgia flared up as well.
No worries, the rewards outweigh the setbacks.
As always my friends, stay healthy, stay happy, and keep moving forward.
