Today I get to reflect on the past eight and a half weeks of my recovery from Left Total Shoulder Replacement Surgery because tomorrow, I FINALLY get to go back to doing what I love to do, teaching fitness!

This recovery has truly been a humbling and very vulnerable experience. (Donโ€™t get me wrong, I know that there are other people who go through far worse than a shoulder replacement every day and I truly hold the deepest empathy for them.) For someone who lives for movement and whoโ€™s job it is to inspire and encourage others to be their healthiest self on the daily, eight week setbacks feel like an eternity and wreak havoc on your mental health! (I had some pretty low days)

I was on the receiving end of so many delicious meals, beautiful flowers, heartfelt gifts, thoughtful cards, phone calls, texts and visits that it restores any faith that can sometimes be lost around so much negative energy in our world. For that I am so very Grateful!
