Finally broke down, literally, and went to see the doctor about my shoulder issues. Phrases like range of motion, limited mobility, and pain levels were thrown about. So X-rays prescribed along with a medically prescribed anti-inflammatory and physical therapy. Good news. Doesn’t believe it’s a full tear of any ligaments or a shoulder separation. All other news … TBD. Let’s just say the X-rays of the left shoulder weren’t the most comfortable. Life lesson #3 – Sometimes uncomfortable is necessary for growth and restoration.
Awake – 7am. Amazingly only snoozed once and up at 7:10am. Morning weight 176.
Breakfast or 1st meal of the day – 7:40am. Surprise! Surprise! It’s my Herbalife Formula 1 French Vanilla Shake packed with fresh (aka frozen) fruits and veggies.
Doctors – 10:30am. Blood pressure the best it’s ever been. 100/70. All this running is doing what it’s suppose to be doing. And oh yeah, salty snacks and popcorn have become my enemy. I’m sure those life-style changes have something to do with it also.
It is now 12:04pm and there isn’t a workout in sight, but it’s still early. We’ll see.
8:20pm. 72-degrees. Made a decision to get closer to my goals and sweat out the 10 radiation-filled X-rays I had in the mid-morning. Ran 10 wind sprints up our neighborhood improvised hill, aka “The Overpass” Total distance 2.13 miles. Last hill sprint didn’t stop — slow jog home and sprinted the last 3 blocks. Fueled back up with a Herbalife Hydrate and Herbalife Mango Aloe cocktail. Since it was just a short run for speed and endurance, drank 8 ounces of water filled with 1 scoop of Herbalife Rebuild Endurance and a single Herbalife Restore tablet.
End of entry. Tomorrow is the beginning of healing via physical therapy to both shoulders.
