Broken but rebuilding
I got a little work done but it wasn't an overly productive day since I could barely walk from leg day...
Actually, even though I had every intention of phoning in cardio because the thought of something strenuous was not attractive, I ended up doing intervals during Walk Away the Pounds. I wasn't in the mood for Leslie's voice so I muted her and stuck on a playlist that seemed pretty closely timed with every move so it made it more bearable. Then there would be a peppy part in a song and I'd wog a bit and do arm raises to the beat or pull backs. The Mr couldn't though with his upper body restrictions except for PT.
Speaking of which, the therapist said he's coming along well and he'll have this week and next as a two per weeker and then kick back to once a week. (Of course once his big test is over he gets to cut back on appointments. Yeesh) He said the needling wasn't pleasant this time. He said there are small improvements he's seeing like reduced pain putting on his seat belt and when he does side raises his shoulder doesn't pop as much. Like me, he realizes that this will be a lifetime commitment. He's got bad genetics in the posture game against him so he'll need to keep this up to stay upright. My ankle yanked on me when I overstretched it but that was from being so sore from leg day so I gave myself the night off of full PT and rolled, did my balance board and gastroc stretches ending with the vibration plate. Broken but rebuilding is the theme of our household!
Then it was time for dinner which was BAS (aka- Big @ss Salad)
Lettuce/arugula tossed with vinaigrette, roasted purple sweet potato, clementine wedges, dried cherries, black beans, alfalfa sprouts, walnuts and spicy chicken. I'll take those 43 grams of protein.
What did you guys have for dinner last night? Tonight?
