I’m very happy to say I survived the first week of Focus T25 and it was not easy. I’ve been tired every day since last Monday and it’s not tired sleepy, it’s tired like, I don’t think I can get up. This hasn’t kept me from getting up and following my usual routine, but it does make me think about it a little bit.
Now I’m even more thankful to my psychiatrist for prescribing that second Ritalin at noon because without it I would be falling asleep and I doubt I would have been able to stay awake all day. But this was just the first week, it will keep getting easier as the weeks go on. Easy or not, I have to do this; it is recommended that after a traumatic brain injury you go on with a healthy lifestyle, which includes exercising.
Me being tired after the videos is not due to overdoing the exercises or as a result of the brain injury; I just push myself to do what I can, no more and no less. I’m so tired because I haven’t worked out like that in a long time, at least not since last November. But even at the gym I only pushed myself to do what I could, not too much or too little.
Despite all the difficulties I have faced in recent years, I am very proud to say I can do this, that I survived a week of Focus T25 and I won’t quit. That’s what’s going to make me stronger.
