New Year, New Goals

I’m not a believer in New Years Resolutions. I am a believer in goals, all year long! I write them down daily to remind myself and often cross them off as I accomplish them.

I registered for two runs today. I can run a mile. But I need to get back into shape and creating healthy habits while also listening to my body and brain, so I don’t put myself down for weeks which all too often happens.

I am planning to do my peloton Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday’s with Tuesday and Thursdays and weekends to rest and stretch if I want to move my body. Going from being so active to a brain injury with my biggest daily side effect being no energy, I have to be cautious now which sucks because if I do too much it puts me down and creates a whole mess of problems in how I function daily, like some times cannot talk or process things because I am so tired.

For some deadlines, dates and goals to reach, I decided to register for the Shamrock ☘️ Run 5k in Portland on March 13, 2022. I used to run this years and years ago. I also registered for the 10k Bridge Of Gods August 7, 2022. I am hoping to have a friend that I met at Love Your Brain to fly in for it and join me and some here too:)

I am excited for these goals and to accomplish them. I like having things to work towards and you can’t go wrong with healthy achievable and attainable goals. A 10k is max for me as I know my body and what it can do safely, my body is not what it once was between breaking my back and brain and I have no reason to push it so you will never see a half or full marathon. I can definitely walk that far but that’s it. Not an excuse, I just know and listen to my body and what’s best for me.

I am a TBI Survivor and woman who has been through a lot of good and bad. My goal by this blog is to share what I have learned and how life has happened for me and not to me. I have found purpose in it all and am here to share it. I am also sober and quitting drinking was the best choice for me. I will post about TBI, Brain Injury, life, travel, lessons learned and more. I am not a doctor or a nurse, I am a traumatic brain injury survivor who has lived 40 years of life and have an amazing mindset from it all. None of this is medical advice, that is what your doctor is for or 911 if you are having an true emergency and need help right away. I am here for community and to share all I have learned, you never know who it will help. Click on the white title of the blog post to read, just saying in case you might be confused like I am with all this 🤣
