Taking time off from upper body workouts.
Thursday, June 05, 2014
I have really been doing a lot of upper body exercises targeting my arms lately. They are pretty weak because of arthritis and post shoulder dislocation and rotator cuff blow out with resulting surgical repair. Apparently I have strained or pulled some muscles. I have been having almost constant pain in my shoulder joint and muscles in upper arm, upper back, and neck. I have an appointment Monday to see if everything is OK. So in the mean time I will be doing my walking and some lower body workouts. This will be hard with my bad knees and hips but I have to do something. As you all know we can't let minor aches and pains make us inactive. We are where we are because we have done that in the past. So I will push on and do what I can until Dr. Tells me about the shoulder. I don't take muscle relaxants because they put me to sleep and druggy. I will take some anti-inflammatory medicine. I will get through this.
