But I’ve lost a couple of inches, so I’m not going to complain.
Something huge happened – I didn’t gain my monthly 5! I love that! That alone was enough to keep me on track for a couple of weeks.
I’ve been exercising but not following a traditional program. I’ve been gardening, organizing the shed and attic, hanging blinds (which was a doozy thanks to my shoulder and heavy drill), and walking the dogs. More than walking the dogs, actually; playing football with them. It’s cute – Fred will play fetch with me while playing keep away with Oz. She’s getting a little smaller, too.
On a down note, my shoulder has been driving me up the wall. The past couple of days have seen me hit between 7-9 on the pain scale. I’m popping pain pills and meditating, but the pain has not eased. Time for a doc visit. Until I can move it freely again, I’ll be either walking, on the elliptical (holding onto the heart rate monitor), or doing other things that will not aggravate it. I love kicking drills because I keep my upper body pretty much still. (See, Sensei, I retained something from your lessons).
Until next time, be well, be safe, and have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend.
