92// Broken Body; No Knee Cartilage, Spondylolisthesis and stenosis. Now what?

I just got the results from my knee MRI.  The news is really not ideal- in fact, it might be catastrophic for the trajectory of my fitness career and what I envisioned my body doing over the next decade…

Today’s episode was a last minute insert between series to share some of the challenges I face with my body- in hopes that it will shed some light and some insight into how to possibly shift perspectives when challenges show up in your life…

I would love to know what physical, or other challenges that you’re struggling with that get in the way.  Or if you have any insight on a grade 2 Spondylolisthesis with Spinal Stenosis as well as having a knee with no cartilage…

I do however believe that the body is resilient and that physicality builds a strong foundation for whatever life does throw at you.

The mind leads the body and the body leads the mind.

I am grateful that my body is strong and that my path has been one through fitness and movement- I’m just trying to navigate the lessons of why my body is not one of injury free despite my mindful movement and intention to be a strong example….

Stay tuned.
