I've talked before about my struggles with back injuries and back pain and up until this week I had been free of acute pain for a good 6 months. Cleaning a car on the weekend however put an end to that good run and then getting up from a comfy chair a couple of days later rubbed it in a bit further.
It's true that if you look at my IG feed it's just a sugar-coated version of my life and yeah I've been to some absolutely stunning places around New Zealand so I can't really complain but the truth is, taking many of these photos has been quite a struggle.
My goal for the last few months has been to get tramp-fit and increase my core strength and while my choice of food prevents me from having a 6-pack, I feel I'm in reasonable shape. I had been completing my rehab every single day right up until Sunday so it's really frustrating that my lower back would just 'ping' like it did.
It's a battle to remain positive and thinking that many people have it worse off than me only brings comfort for a short while before realising that I'm in my own reality, comparing myself to others does not help me one bit. I'm at the early stages of recovery so I'm still a bit salty about the whole thing, even feeling sorry for myself a little (a lot) but when I'm standing up a mountain in a couple of months, taking in the view, I'll wonder why I ever worried in the first place. She'll be right aye 🙂
