Hello friends. I know for most of you it’s already almost lunchtime but here in the far West it’s early.
Good news! I’m sleeping every night, at least a little bit. There for a while I was only sleeping every third night or so. Supposedly Vicodin can make you an insomniac… strange and I think I have that side effect ;-). Well for the last few nights I’m falling asleep at a decent time, none of this 3am stuff but I’m waking up crazy early like between 4 and 5 in the morning! Gross! Seeing 4am is not on my daily list of to-do’s!
I started the coffee train early, about 6am but I just finished making breakfast.
Jar o Joe and brown cow greek yogurt with oats and cinnamon. I’m not quite hungry yet so I’m letting it sit and soak.
I’m not going to class today, boo :-(! My ankle is really inflamed and swollen. I think all the baking this weekend was a little rough on it. Anyways I need a day of elevation and pampering. If I could just go to class then come home I think I’d be able to make it happen, but I have to go over to Santa Cruz with my mom at 8am and hang out on campus until class starts at 2. It’s a long day for the ankle before it’s unhappy. If I want to make it to class Wednesday I have to let it rest today.
This Week on The Agenda
- Laundry for days! :-|
- Do all class reading on time
- Physical Therapy- Session 1 on Thursday :-D
- Think about birthday gifts for Mom (Oct. 22) and Bro (Oct. 24)
- Max’s grandpa’s birthday is Oct. 23, my parent’s anniversary is on the 15th and I have a midterm the 25! :shock:. Looks like life will get very hectic pretty quick.
- Lots of ankle rest
Wow it’s been a while since I’ve written that header :-). I’m going to try to start doing some working out this week. I’m a little nervous, but mostly excited. I have a Pilates DVD from Giiam that is almost completely un weight bearing so I’m going to try that and then I’m going to start doing some upper body strength work. I’m looking online for a upper body routine that gets all the main muscle groups. Hopefully by dinner I’ll have some reps to report.
What’s your upper body workout look like? How much weight do you use and how many reps do you do?
