Cautiously Optimistic

Thursday, September 04, 2014      2 comments

Last night when Jason and I were driving home from pub trivia (1st!), I commented to him that right at that moment, my shoulder wasn't hurting. That's kind of a big thing since most of the time there's at least a slight ache there. This mornin... Read more

Results

Monday, August 25, 2014      3 comments

And the MRI result is - there's no injury. Wah wah. I went to my PA on Friday and he told me that the MRI definitely shows inflammation, and some bursitis and tendonitis, but no tears anywhere. Which to me just sounds like I have to learn... Read more

MRI

Tuesday, August 19, 2014      5 comments

Had my MRI this morning. Afterward I was wondering if experienced MRI techs know enough to read and interpret what's on the screen? My tech was an older lady who seemed to know her way around the MRI machine, adjusting me and switching out coi... Read more

Atrophy

Thursday, August 07, 2014      3 comments

I saw my orthopedic PA this morning and we agreed that I should get an MRI. He asked if it shows some fraying or tearing if I would be open to having surgery and I said, definitely. It's not that I want surgery of course, but I do want to feel... Read more

Limiting Factors

Friday, August 01, 2014      4 comments

My spirit is willing, but my flesh is weak. Yesterday I did a PiYo workout called "Sweat", which, yes, that's what you do. I felt fabulous doing it, as usual. My balance and wrist strength are both improving a lot after only a few weeks of do... Read more

Keep On Keeping On

Wednesday, July 30, 2014      3 comments

So my shoulder is still wonky. I started doing PiYo a few weeks ago and am really enjoying the short but intense workouts. However, I've discovered that I can't double up on workouts and I can't do it 6 days a week like the schedule calls for.... Read more

PiYo Highs and Lows

Thursday, July 17, 2014      3 comments

It's been bit more than a week since I started PiYo and I thought I would give a little update. First of all, I'm really enjoying the program overall. I like the combo of pilates and yoga a lot. I've always enjoyed pilates (probably partly b... Read more

Starting A Challenge and Office Improvements

Tuesday, July 08, 2014      1 comments

No, the improvement isn't that there's less junk food in the office. However, today I got an office again! I figured since I moaned about not having an office on here a little bit ago, I should talk about the exciting development that is havin... Read more

Struggle At the Office

Thursday, July 03, 2014      4 comments

Our office used to consist of me, my boss and our assistant. We also had a junior associate periodically. So there were 3 or 4 of us and we had an unspoken arrangement that we would not be bringing junk food into the office. I swim, my boss b... Read more

PiYo

Wednesday, June 25, 2014      3 comments

Yesterday, I ordered PiYo from beachbody.com, fine purveyors of such products as P90X and Insanity. One of my online knitter friends is a beachbody coach (pretty sure this means she gets a kickback any time one of her people orders a pro... Read more

State of the Shoulder

Wednesday, June 18, 2014      2 comments

I won't lie, I'm a little down. I joined a 3-week challenge that started last week, and despite the allure of points and knitting-related prizes, I haven't been doing that great. Mainly because I haven't been working out. Part of it is becaus... Read more

Second Place!

Thursday, May 29, 2014      2 comments

First of all, we're back from St. John and I'm a little depressed about that just generally. Although I am happy my eyes are getting back to normal. I always forget, but every time we go to St. John I have an allergic reaction to something and... Read more

All Hail Prescription Drugs!

Wednesday, May 14, 2014      2 comments

When an orthopedist (or orthopedic PA, in my case) tells you to take an anti-inflammatory, it's a good idea to do it. The problem is, we're still trying to have a baby, right? And the particular anti-inflammatory I've been prescribed (or reall... Read more

Radio Silence

Tuesday, May 13, 2014      3 comments

Things have been quiet around here. I just haven't felt like writing. I'm kind of down, if you must know. Next week we're going to St. John. I'm excited, but it's tempered by my lack of working out over the past couple of months because... Read more

The Verdict on the Shoulder

Wednesday, April 09, 2014      4 comments

Well, swimming is going to have to go on the shelf for at least a month or so. I saw an orthopedic PA this morning and he said it's most likely a torn or inflamed labrum. I had no idea what that was until a couple of hours ago. Apparently it'... Read more
