I was once broken in both body and mind...It has been almost two years since I began my intense training to become stronger. This was originally purely physical but the mental depth it has built and refined within me was unexpected and enlightening. I have willed myself into someone different than before, all aspects now altered through hard work and determination. However, I have hit a snag in my quest for power. My shoulder has fallen vitcim to immense strain I have thrust upon myself. The damage alone is not as worrisome as the overall effect it could have on what I seek. My strength had surpassed all my expectations yet the routine and the struggle have become part of my life, and I fear that I may lose all that I have sought after due to injury.
For now, I will be on the mend, altering my daily activities at work and the gym, while I have been installing a low carb diet and cardio to keep me feeling somewhat in the swing of things. I miss my holy trinity of bench, deadlift, and squat (overhead press being the extra that only diehards may include). Hopefully, my physical training and time off will aid in recovery, my best outcome being only that of a minor set back, a temporary state. I envy my gym buddies and try not to harp on them for expressing their excitement for an epic pump or new gains and broken records. Its hard for me to be unable to do the very things that have given me such confidence and prowess. My self esteem is taking a hit however I know that I cannot let myself be detered or defeated. This is merely a transitional phase, and I shall not be defeated or refused the goal I seek.
For now, I will focus on my scholarly duties, improving my mind while my body heals. This should mean I will be producing new content, of which I have a lot of things in the works. It should keep me busy so that I do not fall into despair over my current restrictions. I have much to offer within the wild, raging thoughts that distract me when I do not give them the proper attention.

Beware, for a journey of self improvement is also one made with great sacrifice.
