Being Honest with Myself

Thursday, April 11, 2013

Saw the doctor today and had a reality check. My shoulder needs about 2-3 weeks of rest. That means no upper foundation garments, limited movement of the left shoulder (which will make the deep water fitness class very interesting), and (in lieu of a sling) I have to keep my arm in a Napoleon stance when standing.

Uhhhh! Definitely not what I wanted, but obviously what I need. The doctor did okay the rest of my workout of the lower body as long as it doesn't affect the shoulder, so I have to be very sure I don't foul this up. I truly do not want to end up like some of the wonderfully kind people who shared their horror stories after my blog yesterday.

I am truly grateful for the good SparkPeople who endeavored to help me by sharing!

    oh girl you really hurt it, didn't ya. I am so sorry and I understand how frustrating it's going to be. .... But 3 weeks isn't anything in the big scheme of things. And it might take longer than 3 weeks.... but there's lots of things that you can do for exercise to keep that habit going.
    I pray that it heals quickly and right without any further problems.
