Okay- I have been working out thru my absence here- tho only like 3 times a week. I felt like I was just whining too much as my injury progressed throughout my arm. Very strange! First it was my shoulder, then my wrist on up was unbearable…. could not do any task - even brush my teeth! (but I managed with the other hand) Then it was my joint-I can't say elbow as it was really the inside. Terrible!

I held off on weights for a while.
So that and the holidays kept me from wanting to be more diligent….I'm sure I gained a few lbs. but I have no intention on weighing myself until I get back into the swing of things again. I had been eating way too many sweets as is usual for me.

Resting my arm seemed to have worked tho! I still don't have the flexibility and I feel that if I push it too much or perhaps hyper extend it, it could come back. I am making sure I am focusing on form and not letting my ego get in the way with always wanting to better and better and better myself without the weight.

Nice to read that you're working out your injury with some thought behind it. :popcorn:

It's a difficult thing to weigh.
Do you risk aggravating your injury because you want to maintain a certain level? I guess it's a matter of listening to your body. I was ignoring it's complaints because I wanted to continue my progression...and in doing so, drove it too much and injured it. And I don't have the benefit of a professional opinion. Now I am just taking smaller steps to get back into a groove.

Another thing is that my husband, who was doing the program along with me has only been working out w/weights twice a week and hasn't done a cardio workout in a while. I miss that support and teamwork.

OH and thanks for the "welcome back", Lobsteriffic.

So I've been getting ready for my first ever 5K in my town. I don't love to run, but I've been doing it. I've also been keeping up with a modified P90X.

For a while I was touch and go....I didn't have a real plan or goal...but now I figured out what I was going to do every day until March 20- it really REALLY helps me....just like the aforementioned program did as you knew what you were doing every day. I just need a list of to-dos in front of me or else I get scattered...no matter what the task.

I just haven't been up to typing out my food. Meh. I eat a lot and it has gotten tedious I guess.

As far as how my arm has been feeling---a lot better. I still don't have the strength of my left arm--and it feels funny in certain positions--- and cannot hold it straight above my head by itself---but it really is a lot better.

Last week I attempted a workout I hadn't done since October consisting of mainly different push-ups and pull-ups and made it thru okay. Pain the next few days was crazy but it was not because of my previous injury-just recovering.

Tomorrow I am going to run and do a legs and back workout. Whoo and hooo :) .

Thanks! I feel pretty confident that I'll make it thru....tho it will be a new strange experience. I don't know what to expect. I've never even GONE to any sort of a race (since like high school).

Then we'll see about roller derby!?!!?!?

Gonna start recording food again next week.

Yesterday I did my run (not sure of distance still---but it was for around 1/2 hr)---and did my legs/back workout from 11.20 pm to 1.15 am. I know, that's crazy. But I procrastinate..then ate at 9.00pm and then my conscience won't let me go to bed without doing my entire workout. I still felt strong and alright as I am used to being up that late.

Today I had a not-so-great day. I planned on Kenpo and Ab Ripper X but I am going to do it tomorrow which was my scheduled day off. Today was much better for the day off so I'm good with that. BTW I'm doing it tomorrow morning around 8.30am like more normal people do. Weird.

I'll be near the beach on Saturday and it is supposed to be on the warm side. Boardwalk, here I come! Oh, how I've missed you.

Hi Again! Well I completed my first ever race since I was forced to do so in high school gym class...and that had been no more than a mile....I did my town's 5K! Husband too. We both jogged around town to train maybe 3 days a week in addition to other workouts. I never found out exactly how much I ran during my training...but the race itself taught me a lot: It taught me that my pace had not been up to par! I my have been traveling around the 3 mile mark for a week or so prior, but I sure was not used to the pace, the competition, or the sun! It has been a while since I"ve had such physical competition and it felt good and annoying....ex: I was annoyed when ANYONE passed me who looked older or who looked to be a lot bigger than I!

Nonetheless, I was satisfied with my results and now I know a good track in my town and what time to shoot for....oh, you wanna know what I did? Alright snoopy people! haha 26.25.48 & I placed 9th in my age category. Maybe next time when I have more confidence I'll wear a VEGAN shirt! Oh, and my 44 yr. old vegan hubby who also had never run a race like this got 22.52.82. I think that's pretty respectable!

Starting my food and moves log again!
