Not terrible, not great. Trying to keep one step ahead of 6 animals is a little exhausting lol but I do love their company. I seem to have developed a mystery allergy, though, and it's kicking my ass in the mornings. I haven't been able to identify what it is, but obviously it's in my apartment.
I tried the gym on sunday and it was more frustrating/depressing than enjoyable, which depressed me more cause it's supposed to be my happy place lol Can't wait till I'm fixed and able to function like a normal 24 year old rather than a 63 year old, as my PT refers to me lol

I've really been slacking off on this blog...I've developed a tendency to avoid all things gym related. Trying to work out depresses me, and thinking about it does even more so, so I guess I'm just avoiding it altogether :(
Yesterday was the day I should have had my arthrogram had my doctor been smarter and not cancelled it. Just under 3 months for it now.
Anyone have some motivation to help me get back in the gym? I'm usually an extremely positive person, but these injuries have me beat.

Maybe work out what bodyparts you are able to train and work a plan out from there? I'm actually working around an injury myself right now, but 'working around' is actually what you need to do. Get to it!

Is it weird that I miss you guys when I don't post for a while? lol
Had a session with my pt last weds. Shoulders were no better, but no worse, so that's actually a positive lol Stopping the decline is actually a big positive for me. On the other hand, my hips have been brutal the last week and a half. It's actually been to the point where not only has it kept me awake at night, but my boyfriend can't touch me...Too much info? lol
I'm looking into accupuncture for my hip. I went to a lecture on it in animals and figure I might as well give it a go. I've got another 2 months (almost to the day) until my next test, so I might as well try and keep comfortable. Lately I'm a little terrified that the test is going to be inconclusive, but every time I think it I give myself a little slap and remind myself to keep positive :)
I've been trying to be better with diet, too..Thanks to my guy's parents, I've found a hummus that I like so as of this week I'm eating that and a lot of veggies. Diet coke still has me hooked though...it's just so much more delicious than water! lol Baby steps, I guess.

Is that your way of saying that you miss me, too? = P

My shoulders feel like they'd tolerate some light weight work, but my hips are giving me a hard time still. I'm really tempted to try, but I'm just not sure it's wise.

Went to the gym for the first time in nearly 2 months, I guess. It went ok. I just did different upper body exercises, keeping everything light, just to test my capabilities. I did reasonably well, I think, until I tried tricep extensions and that wasn't working for my shoulder so I stopped there. I can tell I'm not getting proper nutrition because I was exhausted half way through...not tired muscle exhausted, like my body has nothing to run on and I could have curled up on a bench and gone to sleep. I guess that's a sign that I need to give myself a swift kick in the ass (and hopefully not injure myself doing it) and get some more protein in me.
I'll try the gym again on saturday..a little bit is better than nothing...despite how depressing it is to do only a little lol
