How do you motivate yourself to workout? To do things? I was in a car accident in January. Fractured multiple vertebrae and was in a brace until the end of April. Before that I was in decent shape. Now my heart races if I walk to the back of the pasture to catch my horses. I can mount into the saddle but have major troubles dismounting so I can only ride when my BF is home and within earshot. I was in physiotherapy for as long as I could afford it. I get massages whenever I have the money. I have a ton of workouts I'm supposed to do. One was a 30 day program. I got to day 4. I can't even complete one of the exercises. The doctor, my family, everyone is telling me I have to do these workouts. And then I do them, exactly as prescribed. Which results in me struggling to walk the next day or do anything. When I tell the physiotherapist this, she tells me to do a lighter program. So I try that. At the next check-in I get told I'm not progressing enough so they bump it back up. It's turned into a vicious cycle. I used to be able to do all of these things. Now I can't even hang out my laundry. I can't carry my favourite saddle down to the arena and I absolutely hate the saddle I can carry. I don't fit into anything other than my Wanglers from pre-accident. I was supposed to re-start one of my geldings this summer... he's now sat in the field for a year. I hired someone to do it for me, but eventing season is in full swing now so I guess he's going to sit for another few months. I've only managed to his groundwork and tack him up. He has thrush which I'm struggling to treat because he likes to use humans as a leaning post, making it a huge challenge for me to pick up his hooves. The worst part is, if you see me outside, walking around, I look fine, same as before the accident. So people expect all of these things from me and then angry/upset/annoyed with me when I say no, actually I can not do that. I asked for help carrying my groceries one night at the store, they have a teenager hired to do that, he does it for all the elderly. I can't carry and load all of the bags into my car unless I carry each item one at a time. He flat out refused. Thanks for reading my rant. I have a major 3 day BIG final exam in a month (CFE for the CPA). So very stressed about that too.
