Day 12. Morning Herbalife Shake. Morning Run. Morning Good.

Today’s weigh-in 174 and I’m extremely happy with those results. Yesterday was an Indian Buffet kind of day — my weekly luncheon with a dear friend. He choose buffet and “ok” Life lesson #12 – make plans with friends and keep them.

Experimented with today’s shake. Added a few more ice cubes, more spinach and kale, and more strawberries. I’m still drinking it as we speak because that baby is thick! I’m talking McDonald’s milkshake thick. Experiment failed, but if I didn’t try, I wouldn’t know. Tastes great — too thick.

Drank an 8-ounce cocktail of Herbalife24 Hydrate and Herbalife Herbal Aloe Concentrate Mango Flavor and off I go. Goal. Stronger and faster than my last run.

After an 8+ mile run earlier in the week, went for a shorter, faster pace.

After a change of pace run to help build stamina and endurance, went directly into a weights session. 4-sets of 12 dumbbell floor presses and the last set of 15 presses. Worked between in-and-out curls with dual bands for increased tension and single band work shoulder presses. After getting my heart rate up from the quick run, I didn’t have the same twinge in my left shoulder when I brought the weights down. Note to self – warm-up next time. Finished off these 3 movements with a final physical therapy movement I learned from Doug yesterday. There is noticeable progress and I am thankful for that.

So, decisions-decisions. Herbalife24 has a Rebuild Endurance and a Rebuild Strength. I ran which falls under the “endurance” category. I did weights which is “strength.” Let’s do a scoop of both in an 8-ounce glass of water.

Day 11. Mark’s not there – Doug to the rescue.

Morning weight 173. Morning Herbalife shake and off I go. Second physical therapy session. Mark called in sick so they placed me with Doug. Today we actually got to do some neck alignment and we went to the hospital gym. Not quite 24-Hour Fitness or CalFit, but it felt like a reunion. I wanted to give the machines a hug because it’s been so long, I’ve missed them.

Doug found a neck position to relieve the tingling in the right arm. Imagine a confused dog and what they do with their heads, that’s the position.

No more tingling in arms

Keep that position and tuck the neck down towards the chin. Ahhhh … relief. My goal, try not to look confused 24 hours-a-day, but Mark makes a solid point. The less tingling, the better. It will help with any inflammation of the nerve. Life lesson #11 – if you have something uncomfortable in your life, change the position or perspective before the situation inflames.

Set-up third appointment and progress is here. Mark mentioned the lack of motion may take 1 year to remedy. We will do more home and office physical therapy and if there isn’t any significant improvement, refer to a orthopedic doctor for further tests.
