I've been having problems with my right arm and shoulder -- yep the "good" one -- and I've been ignoring the symptoms (shooting pains, hurting all the time) for a month now. Yes, this is still from the bingo injury of a LONG time ago. So anyway, I hurt it even more on Wednesday, so much so that I couldn't use my right arm to do simple stuff like eat, brush my teeth, or fix my hair.
So here's the plan -- I'm going to take a week off of everything -- SST and working out the Darla -- so it can get better. Then I'll reevaluate at the end of a week. Well, today taking a week off looked like doing TWO lower body workouts and TWO cardio workouts. This morning I went to the gym and did a lot of bodyweight stuff, then jumped onto the leg press machine for a killer set of single and double leg presses. Then headed upstairs for the ARC trainer, where I did 30 minutes of intervals. So then Tim gets home and wants to go to the gym while one kid is at gymnastics, and the other is at the school carnival with a group of friends. So I head back to the gym for more legs (cuz it's all I can do) and more cardio. Oh, and I did stability ball jack-knifes for abs, and I'm already sore!
Eating was clean till tonight. I did 4-1/2 days in a row, which is a true miracle, and tonight gave in to the call of the brownies. Well, tomorrow's another day, right?
