This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mira.
The news of the results of my MRI last week kind of brought me down (again). And then when I found out that I can’t get into the foot and ankle specialist till the end of August, that just brought me down even further. I really was hoping that I’d get a magical cortisone shot (or something) within the next week and I’d be running by mid August.
Well, that’s not happening.
So I had to put my big girl panties on (again) and remember what I can do rather than what I can’t. The most important thing is that I can still do exercises that make me sweat. When I can do an exercise that gets my heart pumping and the sweat coming out in buckets, I feel the most calm, vibrant and alive. It makes everything all good.
Let’s just call it Sweatual Healing.
The awesome Mira Fit peeps describe sweatual healing as what happens to your body after exercising. It may start off as a feeling—like that burst of confidence you get after a sweaty workout or a sense of calm after a long walk—and quickly evolves into much more.
Don’t you just love that?
So what am I doing for my sweatual healing? I’m tackling the biggest hills I can on my bike. I’m walking for miles and miles. I’m lifting weights. I’m doing Tabata’s. I’m doing the elliptical. I’m doing yoga. Whatever it takes to make me feel alive and strong and to get my healing on. And I’m still wearing my Mira Fitness Tracker daily to keep track of my steps.
