Tuesday May 31 – Day 111

Tomorrow is the day I see the specialist!  YAY!

30 calories on bike
30 sit ups
4 rounds

Felt good.

Friday May 27 – Day 110

I gave myself a bit of a break today.  My shoulder was aching all day long, to the point I just wanted to die by the end of the work day.

100 calories on the bike
100 sit ups
75 calories on the bike
40 sit ups
25 squats

Got home, took my Naproxen and hoping it calms down a bit.

Thursday May 26 – Day 109

I skipped the workout yesterday due to inclement weather.  I felt the need to come home and prepare rather than run steps and make myself sick! lol

Today, I lost my temper twice at work, so in order for me to leave it in the building, so to speak, I did:

2 stair runs
40 calories on the bike
40 sit ups
2 stair runs
40 calories on the bike
40 sit ups
2 stair runs
20 calories on the bike
20 sit ups

So for the bike and sit ups, I did a total of 100 each and the stairs totaled 6 runs.  Felt good doing it and felt even better when I finished.

Tomorrow, I’m going to kick my butt too with an older workout The Trainer gave me awhile ago.  I probably won’t be able to walk well for the weekend, but that’s alright.  I’ll be doing nothing but homework except when I go to dinner with a friend on Saturday.

Protected: It’s really not rocket science, I promise!

Tuesday May 24 – Day 108

In my never ending quest to make sure I do something every single day, I went down to the gym at 4pm, fiddled around a bit while I chatted with the guys and then….

100 calories on the bike
100 squats
2 stair runs

And then I realized I didn’t want to do stair runs today because tomorrow I’ll be running stairs as the main “portion” of my carido workout.

7 days, people!  7 days until I go to the specialist so I can wait some more for either a MRI or to get into physical therapy.  Or both.  But at least I will have gotten some face time with a shoulder doctor.

Monday May 23 – Day 107

Nothing exciting to report today.  I’m so over this working out thing right now and I know it’s just because of what I’m limited in doing!

10 stair runs
100 calories on the bike

Kicked my butt a bit.  Tomorrow I’ll be doing the bike and then some lower body stuff.

9 days and counting until I see the specialist!

Friday May 20 – Day 106

I haven’t bugged The Trainer for a workout since I went to the doctor two weeks ago.  Just seems like I’d be bugging him, ya know?  So today I did:

50 calories on bike
50 squats
50 situps
2 rounds

It was enough to help me realize I need to do this consistently and every.single.day until my shoulder heals so I’ll be up to the upper arm stuff I’ll be doing.

I’m hoping I’ll get into some physical therapy and it will fix the problem and heal up quickly.  But I have 12 more days until I see the specialist and it’s driving me batshit crazy.  At least in 12 days, I’ll know what’s going on with it and will hopefully be doing something about it instead of sitting here and waiting.  I hate waiting.  I’m not patient.  AT ALL.

Thursday May 19 Day 105

Didn’t do much today, but I did run the stairs 10x – so it was something.  I’ve decided I’m going to do the stairs thing every other day and then the bike and lower body stuff on the days I’m not doing the stairs.

I wanted to remind myself why I was wanting to quit smoking and the stairs reminded me, that’s for certain.  And then after getting home and lighting a cigarette, I proceeded to burn the shit outta my right calf.  I have a litte (about a dime size) burn with a blister in the middle of it already.  Nice.  Also ruined my favorite pair of workout pants – which pisses me off more than the fact I burned myself to begin with.

Glad I bought some patches recently – time to use them again.

Tuesday Day 103 and Wednesday May 18 Day 104

I just did 150 calories on the bike on Tuesday.  I had a hair appointment at 5:15 and I knew I did not want to be sitting in my funky sweat for 3 hours while she did my hair and we bullshitted!

Today, I made it up again cause The Trainer was out doing training, so I couldn’t harass him for a workout.

50 calories on the bike
50 squats
50 sit ups
50 calories on the bike
40 squats
40 sit ups
40 calories on the bike
30 squats
20 sit ups

The sit ups hurt my shoulder a bit today, so I took it easy on everything.  While this may look like it was hard, for some reason I feel like I half assed it.  It took me 40 minutes to complete.

Tomorrow, I’m going to do nothing but cardio, so that means I’ll be bitching about the stairs and the bike I’m sure!

Monday May 16 – Day 102

Well, we know how limited I am in what I can actually do in my workouts, but I did something.  I’ll keep doing something everyday and I will either make it up as I go, or ask The Trainer to help me out with stuff because I am not creative with these things like he is.  Could be why he’s the Trainer and I’m not 😛

40 calories on the bike
40 sit ups
40 squats
4 rounds

Yup.  I kicked my own ass today.  I can’t blame this one on him.

I have also been thinking about when my shoulder heals completely and I’ve made the sadistic decision I want to get into the whole Crossfit thing, 100%.  Unlike right now, where I’m doing the exercises but not really doing Crossfit in the truest sense of the word.

Once I visit the orthopedic guy on the 1st, I’ll make my decision final and I’ll talk to The Trainer about it.  While I’m still benefiting and definitely seeing & feeling the results, I have decided I want to push myself a little more.  Okay, a lot more.  And since that is the purpose of Crossfit, to push myself as far as I can, I might as well take the magic pill.  Who knows, I might end up enjoying it more than I do now.  *ahem*
