Andrea Gross Profile Information

When I *really* don’t want to workout (today) because it’s going to be hard, or it’s going to be frustrating, or I’d rather just crawl in bed and watch TV, I remind myself I get to do this. And not in a cliche way. I remember what it felt like to need help to wash my arms and shoulders when I took a shower, and what it felt like to bawl because of the pain when I rolled over in bed, and how much it hurt to breathe. I can look at the cracked helmet and remember the confusion that comes with smacking my head on a street after coming to an abrupt stop when riding a bike 20 mph. I remember how sad I was when I couldn’t do anything and felt helpless, and completely out of control of what I could and couldn’t do. I remember the 2 herniated discs in my neck that could keep me from living a pain free life in the future. I think about how I still feel the issues in my shoulder when I workout. I remember (b/c it’s still going on) the frustration of working with an attorney who sees me as a number rather than a person. Then, I know what a privilege it is that things aren’t worse for me and that this is really just a personal decision: pity party or be thankful for the things I get to do. #readygo #bikelaw #rideproud #imtx

“Mom, you’re so warm.” (I think I might die when he doesn’t want to snuggle anymore.)
