Well today I did not have the best day (so far). I had a follow up appointment with my chiropractor about my hip pain. It’s not gotten any better despite my attempts at “taking it easy”. Turns out that my upper body workouts may not be easy enough on the hip. Also with stairs and walking as much as I do and being on my feet so much, it doesn’t help anything. I left her office pretty discouraged because I got a stern talking mixed with a bit of a wake up call to actually take it easy. I have a REALLY hard time with that. I was quite upset.
The fact that I am even able to joke about it says a lot about my mood improving since I left the chiro office. She treated my and spent a lot of time working on my Psoas muscles. She says I strained my hip joint area pretty good. And the pain I felt during the treatment was no joke. It really sucks.
I need to take it easy and let it heal. Insert panic here. How do I manage my anxiety without my crossfit to focus on? It’s my emotional release. It’s going to be a real challenge for me.
I have been throwing the idea of a cleanse around for quite some time and have never done it because I didn’t want to feel like I was lacking energy because I knew I wouldn’t be able to workout like that. Now I am wondering if this might not be the opportune time to do one? Maybe the challenge of it would give me something else to focus on? I don’t know. If anyone out there has the answers for me I would love to hear them.
For now if you need me I will be on the couch. With an ice pack. And maybe a stress ball?
Thanks for listening.
Have you ever done a cleanse? Any recommendations or suggestions?
Any ideas on what else I could do as a stress/ anxiety release?
