the 2 weeks are up

Friday, August 29, 2014

I know I neglected to tell anyone here about this but I was having a lot of pain in my left arm about a month ago (I nearly thought i was having a heart attack aka myocardial infarction yes I wish I had taken med school - I would probably have ended up being a real life " House MD" ) any how i thought I could be clever and took a week off - the pain subsided but NOT that much so I figured I should start working through it BAD MOVE. Cheryl wasn't feeling well and she didn't want to go to the doctor's alone so I had already decided I was going to take her to the doctor on Friday (I decided to start lifting weights again the Wednesday night (2 days prior)Well Thursday night my arms hurt SO BAD it kept waking me up and so I asked the doctor (my GP had a funny sense of humour) so he examines my arms and then holds onto them and asks me if it hurt (of course I say NO ) the n he squeezes them until I nearly went through the ceiling. "Oh you have tennis elbow I don't want you lifting weights for 2 weeks and put this ointment on your elbows " (it hurt enough just trying to rub the crap in LOL - well not really at the tine at least NOT for me). I think I am going to start to use my tennis elbow brace I had from when I first got tennis elbow from KARATE.
All I know is that the pain was hideous (I had forgotten how bad it was - the only bad thing was the detraining as far as my upper body strength was concerned not good, Have a good weekend ,

Yet again (SIGH)

Monday, August 25, 2014

I noticed a few changes again to the pages I see I NO longer get points for posting these things (only for COMMENTING on them - who wants to bother posting if they don't get points for them and how do you comment on NOTHING ??). Once again if it AIN'T BROKE DON'T FIX IT !!!!

    I didn't even notice that yet. They are constantly changing something on here. Probably trying to weed out people my age who don't respond well to change. We get lost easily. LOL.

    Change is not a bad thing. It makes life more exciting. Lets focus on why we are at Spark People in the firstplace. We are here to change ourselves.
I'll just bet when we change how we appear, no one will be saying I wish you hadn't done that.
Let's just accept the changes and it will only be a short while before we are used to them.

Hugs andfriendship

Hot again and other things

Monday, August 11, 2014

Well last week was a bit cooler especially towards the end of the week. Which was a nice change. Took a couple of weeks off of the weights as my arms were hurting a lot and I wasn't sure exactly what it was. Still I am noticing I lost some strength too bad. On the other hand I did find a neat circuit training series online I would like to try. I just heard Robin Williams died. Poor man, RIP.

I just wanted to thank everyone who stops by and leaves a word of encouragement (or maybe not) I would rather have a few quality friends than to worry about ever getting a most popular blog award.
