Hello my fellow bloggers!
Long time no see my blogging buds. How are you? How are things?
I have been focusing on my work recently as I approach my final day of placement. Apologies for my absence. If you have been with me since I started this journey you’ll know that I have been working for a year now within my industry as part of my university course. If not then go back and read my other posts c’mon!
So…my last day is fast approaching and then I am free for 3 months to do as I please…(within reason).
What would you do if you had 3 months absolutely free at your disposal?
One of my main plans is to get back into the gym and do a bit of swimming in the hope of getting back in shape ready for the start of university again. I am someone who suffers from hyper mobility/hyper extension of the joints or the slang term, ‘double jointed’. This has limited my ability and performance when it comes to training in the gym. If you don’t know what this is, I’ll briefly explain as simply as I can. So like the name states, I have more mobility in my joints than that of a ‘regular’ person. For example, I am able to bend my thumb all the way back to touch my arm, and when I stand If I push my knees backwards my legs will curve as if I’m facing the wrong way. This may look cool and be a little party trick to show your friends, but it can be quite painful at times. I am unable to squat due to my knee becoming weaker making it almost impossible to push myself back up. Obviously this is dangerous with a big weight on my shoulders so I try to avoid that.
However, I am interested and excited to adapt my work outs so I can work just as hard to achieve the best results. One thing I refuse to do is give up and become lazy. Adaptability is essential in all walks of life which has been more than apparent to me this year. From working full-time to tackling my health hurdles, I have made it to the end and given myself the best opportunity and boost in my career. Now I can focus on my life in a different way and I look forward to seeing how I can be the best version of myself.
Hurdles come in a variety of heights, sometimes they get bigger before we reach the end, but finding your way over them is a process well worth putting your all into.
