I simple pop in my knee and the present moment slipped away. Since Saturday I have I been irritable. I have been without tolerance for the antics of my sweet and mischievous toddler. Those grains and sugars, I have given up, have been looking very appetizing.
I am a firm believer in the idea that everything happens for a reason. “What ever stands in the way becomes the way.” (Love this quote; it was on the CrossFitKoP Blog the other day). What gift could this injury have to offer me?
This injury has reminded me that loving and accepting my body, means doing that when it cannot function normally because of injury or illness. That listening to what it needs including rest, means so much more than getting to CrossFit 3x a week. I am committed to honoring and caring for myself and my body in each moment. From moment to moment, year to year, that is going to look different…and that is okay.
Whatever Stands in the way, is the way.
The knee has gotten better everday, and is getting back to normal. I went to the doctor, got anti-inflamatory cream, a knee brace and have an appointment for a physcial therapy evaluation on Monday. Not sure when I will return to CrossFit, maybe even tonight, but I will honor my body by scaling exersizes that put stress on my knee for awhile.
