The last couple of days I have been fighting one of the worst migraines I have had in the 27 years I have had to deal with them. I had to drag myself to the doctor today for a little relief.
When the doctor and I were going over my migraine history I mentioned to her that my migraines have not been as bad since I introduced exercise back into my life. I told her I was sidelined due to my ankle and I have noticed an increase in my migraines not to mention all my other aches and pains.
She asked me if I would be going back to exercise. My answer “ABSOLUTELY”! For a moment I was surprised how quickly that one word came out of my mouth and then I realized I have finally made a life change for the better. Exercise is a part of me and without it I don’t feel complete.
The endorphin’s from exercise have made my quality of life better. I am happy, confident and my pain threshold is higher. My migraines have cut back and my back pain is not as intense, not to mention the added bonus of weight loss. I never realized how effective those natural endorphin’s were in my life until these last 6 weeks.
I have had moments of doubt in myself as to whether or not I could succeed in my quest for a fitter me. I now have clarity and know that I will continue to better myself mentally as well as physically with my boot camp family.
My Kinesiology Tape showed up today, I can’t wait to tape up the ankle and get back in the game, not tonight but real soon!
