Been about two weeks since I saw the doc....
I am working out a little...harder? Not sure that is the right descriptor....how about a little less cautiously? Maybe that is more accurate.
Lots of people have asked me how recovery is coming along...
Here are some things I have noticed.
1. I am not falling asleep while I am in the middle of another activity. Yes this was happening both before and post surgery. The most disturbing incident? Dozing off in Costo while pushing a cart. Yeah.
2. My groin still hurts a little....not a lot, but I am super "aware" of the sore spots. This is clearly why I wasn't cleared for lower body stuff right away. The first time I tried to dead lift....yeah. I was AWARE.
3. I still occasionally have some chest pain. It is weird and sometimes upsetting, so if you see me around and I look like I am rubbing my boob....there is a good chance my chest hurts. I have decided that this is the burn spot healing, you know, like when you have a cut and it itches as it heals....I think the pain in my chest is my heart, itching. Have NO IDEA if this is true, but that's my story and I am sticking to it.
4. I am back to my obnoxious energy levels. And it is a little annoying, well to other people. I just realized this yesterday. It's a good thing I think.
I haven't been writing much, I took on one of those month long gratitude challenges on FaceBook, so some things that I might put here are up on FaceBook. And writing about my workouts feels weird right now.
Not sure why, it just does.
I am sure things will change again soon.....I know BJ is prepping a new space soon....Nooners may rise again. I do miss the Zia crew. Bunches.
I'll say this, a month ago, I really didn't even want to work out any more. I felt...lame...Now after a month I have upped it to 4 days a week, and I don't drag my ass to the gym as slowly as I had been. 5 AM is early, but Grant and I go and just do some work.
All this upper body work isn't giving me ripped arms or anything, but it is reminding me that I like to move weight around. I like to move me around....shit I even use a treadmill for 5 minutes to get my blood moving.
