Well, here I go agian!

Thursday, April 22, 2010

I was getting so much better with my left shoulder. Then one of my kids got independent and decided to make themselves a bowl of oatmeal 1 hour before dinner. I caught them in the act and took the bowl away. As my hand was in mid air with the bowl moving, I lost my grip on the bowl. I could picture, in slow motion the bowl falling to the ground and dry oatmeal spreading everywhere! I made a quick grab to save the bowl from complete disembowelment. All I knew is that I didn't want to sweep the just swept floor again! I felt pain in my left shoulder (with the torn capsule). I discussed it with my therapist and she felt that I should see the doctor before I proceed with therapy. Well, one week later I am in the doctor's office, doing an evaluation, only to find out that I SPRAINED my rotator cuff! No wonder it hurts so much! Now I am restricted even more in my activity. My dreams of doing a sprint triathlon this summer deflated like a hotair baloon in midflight - got the visual? Well, now I will go and curl up in a ball and have my pity party for about 10 minutes. That is about the lenth of time that my 4 kids seem to be able to give me before their world ends in some monumental divergence of opinions. Now my goal is to do a duothlon. It's not as much fun, but it is something to work for!


Life's ups and downs

Monday, April 12, 2010

I am at the tail end of a very busy time of life. It makes it hard to keep up with my eating and exercise. I think for now I will just do good to maintain the 10 pounds that I lost. I am overwhelmed right now and just plain tired even when I get my sleep. At best, I am sleeping 6 hours with pain in my left shoulder. It will get better one day, I just want that day to hurry up and get here! In the meantime, I will get ready to sell my custom earrings at the sparkler fair and take my eldest to the state Karate tournament, and look for a treasurer for our middle school PTA. That will keep me too busy to snack on junky food!

    I think that just maintaining right now would be doing great, with all you have going on.
You can always "pick up where you left off" when you are feeling better and things settle down.

Rehabilitating sucks!

Friday, April 09, 2010

I am in the process of rehabilitating my left shoulder. I have a torn capsule and the capsule is loose. Every time I lay down, no matter the position, I feel pain. My favorite activity, swimming, is off limits. I can't do my fitness videos all the way. My weight loss has slowed down because I can't do all the activity that I want. Walking and jogging just don't help anymore with losing weight. I am getting discouraged! It doesn't help that I'm over 40

I am getting back to normal

Monday, March 01, 2010

I am getting back to normal. I feel good and I am having trouble with the eating part of things. What I am eating is healthy, I am just not hungry enough to eat the required amount of calories. I am trying to do what I can with a rotator cuff injury. I want to participate in the Memorial/Hermann Sugar Land triathlon in July so I need to do what I can to be ready for that event!

I am so excited that I am still seeing a positive change! I have been up and down with the program as life gets in my way a little. I am having to change my workouts because of my shoulder. I need to lose another 10 lbs by the end of April. That is very do-able. I just have to stick to the nutrition program and continue to workout even when I don't want to exercise. I need help!
