I'm sat here thinking what to write. I'm thinking not too much exciting has happened lately. My car is fixed and going very well. We just signed a contract and parted with 10% of $12,000 to get a pergola on the back of our house. It is a lot of money but it will give us an extra room outdoors.
I am too afraid to let my kids eat lunch out there in the summer, so a pergola will give us the shade we need to enjoy the outside more.
Next on the shopping list is a spa.
My physio agreed last week that I could do a little upper body work. It has been almost a year to the day that I really hurt my shoulder so this has been a long process. I still have pain but my pain free range of motion has improved heaps the last couple of weeks. I really need to resist increasing the weights too quickly.
I have done 2 sessions so far, no overhead or lateral movements though. I am happy to say that even with the very light weights, I have a slight muscular ache in my back and biceps, not DOMS exactly but I know I have worked and it feels good.
I have to admit to having slightly more pain in my shoulder and my pain free ROM was less yesterday but I expected that. What is important now is that I rest it properly again before I work it again, and no increasing the weights.
So from a few weeks ago my physio telling me that surgery might be the only option, to lifting weights again. I can hardly believe it. Long way to go but I will get there.
