Tuesday ended up not being so great after the Monday that I had... first of all, my body really hurt after my circuit training on Monday so I didn't get up and go to the gym. I chose to rest a bit. I think that I am going to go to the gym Monday, Wednesday … Continue reading Week 18 – Day 2: And Then This Happened…
Tuesday was the beginning of the stressful part of the week. Lots of meetings, side-by-sides, lots of work to do, and even a doctor's visit (which really wasn't bad, but still added to it). I handled it rather well I thought and didn't eat anything extra, didn't drink, didn't go crazy. I just exercised, worked … Continue reading Week 17 – Day 2: Doctor’s Visit
Sorry for the delay... I was kind of hoping that stress was over for a while, but it looks like that's not happening. Tuesday was a pretty stressful day at work, and it didn't even stop at night when I got home. The rest of the week may be pretty stressful, and next week also. … Continue reading Week 16 – Day 2: Streeeeess!
Tuesday was another regular old day. My shoulder - as I mentioned before - feels a bit better so I did some upper-body exercises. Mainly that consisted of curls, hammer curls and tricep pressdowns. I could feel a bit of a pull on my shoulder when I was doing the tricep exercises, so I didn't … Continue reading Week 15 – Day 2: Da Pump
Since I am unable to do my normal leg day, I decided to be a bit creative. If you remember yesterday's post, I talked about how I couldn't do squats because of some back pain, so I didn't do legs on Monday. Well, I didn't want to do the elliptical or treadmill again, so I … Continue reading Week 13 – Day 2: TUT Legs!
So my favorite days are days when good news happens. Unfortunately, I can't yet divulge the good news until a later time this week, but the news was divulged to me, so it was still a great day. Other than the good news, I had a relatively good day but it seemed busy and drawn … Continue reading Week 12 – Day 2: Good News
Today happened to be my second follow up for my shoulder surgery. I didn't actually get to see the doctor (either he was busy or I just wasn't important enough) but his PA instead, but it was all the same I suppose. I was told I can't start lifting yet for probably another six weeks … Continue reading Week 11 – Day 2: Follow Up
I must say, it is quite nice waking up during the week at a later time than normal. I am usually awake before 4:00 AM in order to get ready to get to the gym. But the last couple of days I've been able to sleep in. One day was a holiday in the states, … Continue reading Week 10 – Day 2: Sleep is Lovely
It certainly didn't take me long to realize that doing upper-body lifts wasn't going to be happening anytime soon. I thought I would start very light and just do a few exercises to get into it and see if I could. It took a single rep of about 90 pounds on the bench press to … Continue reading Week 9 – Day 2: Well, I Tried
What makes doctors think that strapping something onto your finger and hand, laying it beside you and trying to sleep is going to be normal? Maybe it's just me, but it isn't comfortable. Not only that, I am paranoid I am going to roll over on it, it will fall off, fall on the floor, … Continue reading Week 8 – Day 2: Sleep Study
