Not going into detail, but it wasn't the best weekend which was completely my fault and due to my choices. You always have to remember that we are the choices we make. And when we make those choices, we need to live with them. That doesn't mean that we can't push through and find strength … Continue reading Week 17 – Days 5 & 6: Choices
I had originally thought I was just not going to post the rest of the week. It just hasn't been the best of weeks for me. But I woke up on Saturday and decided I needed to stick with it. I am not yet even halfway through my project and I can't give up yet. … Continue reading Week 16 – Days 4 & 5: Can’t Give Up
Yes, that is an extra "f" in the title... This week has been one of the most stressful weeks I've had as of late. But I feel fairly proud of myself for turning to other methods of stress relief rather than drinking and food which were always my go-to before. Talking, venting, exercising, relaxing. I … Continue reading Week 15 – Day 5: TGIFF
So I finally made a change to my workout. I still can't really lift and I still don't want to do much with my feet, but I reverted back to my old ways... I started doing circuit training again. It wasn't anything too complex. I just did three leg strength exercises alternating with three upper … Continue reading Week 13 – Day 5: Circuits
Not really a free day (I don't deserve a free day this week with not being able to exercise... but I may have one anyway). But in reality, I am always happy when Friday rolls around. Friday was a good day. I was able to get a lot accomplished at work, met with some great … Continue reading Week 10 – Day 5 – Freeday!!
Diet Dr. Pepper. It seriously is some of the best tasting chemicals on the planet. I used to be a Diet Pepsi fan, drank it as a teenager and adult (with some Mountain Dew mixed in here and there) until they changed the recipe from aspartame to sucralose. From that point on, I only drank … Continue reading Week 8 – Day 5: DDP
It seems that my body wants to keep rebelling against me. First there was back pain, leg pain, shoulder pain, shoulder surgery, more leg pain... and now I think I've developed plantar fasciitis. In both feet no less. I think it was from my adventure trying to "run correctly" where I was running closer to … Continue reading Week 7 – Day 5: One Thing Or Another
My surgeon prescribed that I should go to physical therapy once per week for the next four weeks. Today was my first day and it was pretty painful... and awkward. I started by showing him how far I could move my arm initially. He then stretched my shoulder out and got it moving before having … Continue reading Week 7 – Day 4: Physical Therapy
I know, I know. What are you complaining about, Earl? You had half the week off? Well, it's still nice to know that the next two days after today are just focusing on relaxing and resting and recovering without worrying about work. Friday was another pretty simple day. I didn't do a whole lot of … Continue reading Week 5 – Day 5: Finally Friday!
Farewell for now my metal, germ-covered friends. It will be a while before I get to wrap my hands around your uncomfortably textured handles and pick you up and put you down repeatedly. Today was assumedly my last day of lifting for a while. There is always a chance that my surgery on Monday will … Continue reading Week 4 – Day 5: The Last Hoorah
