Day 33 Positive changes

    Hello everyone,

    At day 33 the question is: to think about the positive changes in your life since the start of the program. At first I thought... there has not much changed, I still feel not completely recovered from my TMS symptoms. But when I thought better... I came to the conclusion that I actually made very good progress since the start of the program.

    I exercise more often and start to feel stronger. I don't feel the need anymore to sleep so long and often as I used to do before. Before I always went to bed in the afternoon to take a nap, since 1 month I never do this anymore. I also need less sleep. I got a better understanding of my emotions and personality traits which are causing stress in my life. Since a week the pain in my neck has completely disappeared. I am determined to get as fit as possible, I go to the gym more often and changed my diet, because I want to build more muscle. I want to do more abs exercises, although at this moment the exercises are causing me pain flare ups in my groin region. I keep doing them and tell myself it is just TMS there is nothing physically wrong with my groins. So today I will do an ab workout again and I will keep telling myself that there is no reason for this pain. Overall I feel more calm and positive. My fear and anxiety for the pain is slowly diminishing. I try to give more love to myself each day.

    Best Wishes,

    Reading your words, you appear to understand quite well that it takes a while for the mind to reprogram in order for us to return back to the things we love to do physically! I encourage you to continue moving at the steady pace you've gone so far, as your pain fades away bit by bit!!!!

    Best Wishes to you!
