Tonight, something extraordinary happened.
I was laying in bed and needed a gulp of water. I grabbed my water bottle (cats = no open glasses!) and sat up. I just SAT UP. No using my hands, no throwing myself back to get the momentum going. Just sitting up.
This may not seem like a big deal, but I seriously can't even pretend to know when the last time that happened was. No shakes from the exertion, nothing. Just simply engaging the 'ol core and sitting up like I've done it every day of my life. Craziness!
Patting myself on the back to commence. :)
