Time to step out of the shadow of my former self. I’ve been going nowhere fast trying to duplicate my previous fitness and weight loss success. No can do anymore. If I’ve learned anything from this ankle injury is that nothing after will ever be the same.
Hate that I wasted an entire year by stubbornly persisting otherwise in my attempts to regain muscle and lose weight. I will achieve those goals again. But not by using the same approach. Decided to try a sane approach.
First things first. Laying my longboard, Bamboo, down. Yes, I name my boards. No, I will not be skating anytime soon. Getting my ankle healthy and strong again is priority. Next step is to get outta my head with any thoughts of doubt and fear.
What I’ve discovered through all of this is that people cheer you on when you’re able to cheer them on. Fact. Otherwise it’s crickets. It’s important not to become bitter. Only to become better.
