While I pat myself on the back.
But I am quite the badass.
I did it.
I have managed to keep myself away from that awful program at Mayo that they wanted me to go do.
The one where I was going to have to have probes stuck up my bum to rehab my intestinal prolapse.
I'm so sorry.
That was graphic.
But the truth.
About 13 months ago I made a deal with my OBGYN at Mayo and at UIHC (I know it seems strange, but for the kind of prolapse I have, it is cared for by an OBGYN).
I asked for some time to rehab my prolapse on my own.
To build my pelvic floor.
& gave me a full year to get things turned around.
& if I couldn't within that amount of time, I was going to have to go spend three more weeks at Mayo.
My OBGYN communicated with my PT and we have been working hard to turn things around.
I had to increase my sexcapades too. Not a bad deal.
I also became the queen of kegels.
Like for real.
No Mayo Clinic Pelvic Floor program for me.
Thank you very much.
I'm like actually super proud of this.
I am the actual bomb.
Guys, things take work.
You have to make time for them if you want to change them.
They have to be a priority.
Over the last year, I only missed a handful of days working on my pelvic floor.
& I can't even say that. Because even if I didn't dedicate time to my PT I could always sit and do kegels while watching the boob tube, driving or cooking my dinner.
& it worked.
I will have to do maintenance, of course.
It's not like I can just quit and expect things to stay put.
But it isn't obstructing anything anymore.
I can go to the bathroom.
My pelvic floor is happy.
I am happy.
I dare you to choose something you want to work on this month and go for it.
Dedicate half an hour to exercise everyday for a month.
Stop drinking soda for a month.
Delete Facebook from your phone for a month.
& see what happens.
Once you consistently do something for a month...
IT BECOMES A HABIT.
Rock on, warriors.
Choose your thing.
