Still here...

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Yeah, I'm still here. Sort of. I finally got onto my testosterone therapy. I've been on it for about 3 months now. I'm getting hairier, my voice is dropping by the day but unfortunately I've put on more weight. Now, I knew this was going to happen but it's still made me rather depressed.

I've decided to take up kickboxing again. At the moment I'm suffering rather badly with Plantar Faciitis (or however it's spelled) and I'm pretty sure that kickboxing is the worst idea I've had in a long while but truth be told I miss it. I miss the exercise and the feeling so good afterwards. I miss the workout, and I miss being able to take care of myself. I want to build muscle and get fitter, but most of all I want to be able to feel better about myself which at the moment I don't. Sure, the T is helping and I knew it wouldn't be a miracle cure, that it doesn't fix eveything that's wrong (and Gods knows there's a lot wrong with me) but I'm trying.

I've bought some weights, and I have my punch bag so hopefully... hopefully I'll stick with it, hopefully I'll lose weight, hopefully I'll feel better.

How is every one else doing?

    After you gain all of your "teenage weight" your body will probably do a 180 on you. I don't have many friends who haven't slimmed down around their 2nd year of taking T - especially if they've been working out to build some "masculin" defining muscle.

    I'm jealous of the kickboxing; what a great way to get out stress!

    I don't know if it would be as true for you, but my foot is definitely improving a lot because I'm almost obsessive about stretches - particularly calf and achilles' tendon - after every workout and even after any longer periods walking or on my feet.

    I'm hoping your therapy and renewed interest in working out works out for you. Be careful with your foot, though.

    VINCENT! Congratulations on many aspects of your life!
    KICK BOXING? Maybe.

    It might make your feet stronger, it might make them worse.
    Ask the instructor, ask the foot doctor.

    It's good to see you back.
    We all have our ebb tides.
    Me too.

    Gotta build our roof.
    LOVE YA!

    You might try biking, swimming, even rowing - exercise that doesn't mess with your foot. Other option is one of those orthopedic booties to relieve the pressure on the bruised part of your foot. (If it's only a small area, you can use that stick on padding stuff, but I never managed to make that work for me.)

    Good luck!

    Slow progress is the best remedy and will last longer
