Ignore how terrible I look and actually look at how adorable my dog looks 😍
Any who, besides the point, today I went down the road in my wheelchair and because I'm under different circumstances, aka having a cage on my leg, I hated it.
I don't have an elevation to attach to the wheelchair which would stretch my leg. My family have tried hard to find one but we've got no where so instead I've had to make do with a foot plate. Consequently, my leg has had to bend and caused me utter agony. 
We had to keep stopping so I could stretch my leg. It makes me concerned about how I'm going to be when I return to work as I'm in no fit state. Let's just say I'm really anxious about it all...
This isn't the first time I've been in a wheelchair, I was in one when I was 12 but that was different and better. This time, I just feel so much more scared and fragile and this time I only have two broken bones, not three. (I don't understand my thinking too haha). But as a whole, I've been really struggling. I don't feel like myself. I've had to quit working for a while thus having no money. I'm just so scared about the next few months.
The thing is, last time I was confident when I had my wheelchair and I thought that would remain the case but this time, I want to curl up in a ball and never come out.
But there we go.
Comment down below your own wheelchair firsts, I would love to know about them! ♿

  • Finally out of the hospital! Had surgery last night and now back home for awhile to heal it up. Thank you to everyone for the help and support. And although it wasn’t even close to how we wanted to celebrate @kyleejofrost and I got to be together on our two year wedding anniversary. #brokenleg

  • Nothing prepares you for this. There are no books or the perfect advice that prepares you to feel a love so intense or a hurt so deep after you become a mother. I have to remind myself that it is all about the process. I kept asking God why He allowed my daughter to break her leg, and why it wasn’t me instead. I experienced her in pain, in frustration, dealing with the limitations, but I also watched her fight, give herself grace, and work on her resilience and strength. When I stopped asking God why and asked Him what it was all FOR, I started seeing that He was working on me. On my ability to blindly trust Him. On my patience. And most importantly, on valuing what matters the most in the entire world: my daughter’s life and health. I know a broken leg is a small example of what it could mean to struggle, there are so many families that go through so much worse, but I am thankful that today she is free of this struggle, no matter the size. I am learning that guilt only holds me back, that I am no super woman, and that events like this will shape my children’s character and values for the better. As she re-learns how to walk, I will be holding her hand once again, and will as many more times as she needs me to for the rest of my life.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

  • Alright guys, these #butterflypullups are a major work in progress 🤦🏼‍♀️ but im sharing my #CrossFit journey on here for two reasons 👇🏻 1️⃣ IT IS OKAY TO STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE. I had done strict bodybuilding for about 6 years and had pondered trying CrossFit for years. Bodybuilding was all that I knew. It was something I was good at and was comfortable at. But the fear of stepping into an unknown world of fitness like CrossFit terrified me and so I put it off for so long. Until finally I just ripped the band aid off and now I couldn’t be happier with my decision because it is challenging my body and my mind in ways I never imagined possible. And my overall athletic ability is improving day by day.
2️⃣ My second reason I’m sharing this journey with y’all is to show you that THERE WILL NEVER BE “A GOOD TIME TO START”. I hate that saying. “Eh it’s just not a good time to start this new diet right now.” Or “it’s just not a good time to commit to a workout plan right now.” GUESS WHAT? There is NEVER going to be a good time. LIFE IS ALWAYS GOING TO HAPPEN. There will always be a trip planned, or will always be starting that new job, or always will be having to schedule around the kids, etc. So I decided what better time to start my CrossFit journey THAN WITH A BROKEN LEG. 🤷🏼‍♀️🤸🏼‍♂️👏🏻 Because i knew if I started it during a time where I mentally and physically was already EXTREMELY uncomfortable and out of my comfort zone...then I would have no excuse to not stick with it once I’m well and healthy again. Might sound like nonsense to some, but it makes sense in my head. Point is, take the chance. Take the risk. Step out of your comfort zone. Do that thing you’ve always been wanting to do. You’re going to fail. But what we need to realize that when you reach that peak of success, when you’re at the top of the mountain, you’re standing on a pile of failure beneath you. The hundreds of times you failed, yet got back up. And that’s what is holding you up at the top of that mountain. ⛰ anywhooo, rant over. #strength #pullups #gymnastics #savagebarbell #workout #workoutwithinjury #brokenleg #workinprogress #comfortzone

  • CLC MEMBER FEATURE (Haddie): My journey began just over 4 years ago on the 5th August 2015. 
I was involved in a car accident where both of my legs were badly broken and I was told I may never walk again.
•
I was hospitalised for 2 months before I self discharged and was bed bound at home with the support of my amazing friends and family. I developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome following the accident and suffered with severe pain for a long time.
•
Over the past few years I have undergone numerous operations, attended regular physiotherapy and against all odds I have learnt to walk again. It has been a difficult journey with many bumps in the road but I am incredibly lucky to still have my legs and the ability to walk.
•
The physical and mental impact has been tremendous and one I will live with forever but because of my journey I have met so many strong, amazing people who have touched my life, I have learnt a lot about myself and others and I have grown as a person.
•
Despite the difficulties you face, I genuinely believe that if you face it head on and stay as positive as you can then you will achieve so much more than if you accept defeat or go in with a negative mindset.
•
Chronic illness comes in so many different forms, but we all fight our own battles daily. Let’s try to make those battles easier by supporting and motivating each other through another day!
