Week 7, I think.

I haven't blogged and I haven't really exercised. Only once this week. I know, I know. I haven't given up and tossed this aside. I've been having problems with my left shoulder/arm. I went to the doctor last week and the doctor thought that I had a pinched nerve or a pulled muscle and recommended physical therapy. I went to my first PT appointment last Thursday. After going through the evaluation which brought me to tears, it has been decided that I am having some rotator cuff issues along with a frozen shoulder. My PT appointments are on Tuesday's and Thursday's, right after work. I'll be going for at least a month of two. If no improvement after a month, I get sent for an MRI.

I'm not wimpy, I can handle a high tolerance to certain pains, other pain not so much. Again I was brought to tears during my exercises yesterday, as well as when the PT stretched me out afterwards. I kept telling myself that I know I'm going to have to go through a great deal of pain before this feels better and I am 100%. Not a very comfortable night sleeping and was in a lot of discomfort this morning and during the day. In less than 24 hours I'll be going through this again. The ice pack and the recliner have become my best friends. I'm not whining, well maybe a little, but I keep thinking back to the surgery and months of PT my husband had, I can do this.

So hang in there, I'll be back around. The 3 of us will be back around. Dan suggested the walking video, but not doing the arm movements. Yes, that is what we will do.

I have not and nor will I give up. Honestly exercise makes me feel better! Not exercising makes me feel crappy.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is my blog, my thoughts, my words, my feelings.
