Another Day One
I was so optimistic about my New Years healthy living resolutions, but then we traveled and Jason started making sourdough bread regularly, and really I'm just full of excuses. Also, there are many feet of snow on the ground. All that inspires... Read more
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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!
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
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
