The post about my shoulder pop, my first day back to work and arm progress...



  • Meanwhile, yesterday on Instagram...
  • The hardest thing about this week is going to be getting back into my morning routines. What happened to my 4:30 am wake-up? Ugh. Just crawled out of bed. It's #coffeetime. And even though I haven't been to the gym in over 2 weeks, I still have a nice shoulder pop! Before I can even hop in the shower, I've a mountain of laundry to fold and uniform pants to press. Clearly no run this morning. 
  • I'm going to die when I see Tony tomorrow. Although he did promise we'd start slow. Just grinds me that 2 weeks ago I was going hard everyday. Yesterday I found a 2 hr hike challenging. Must remember what my body went through a couple weeks ago and be mindful that I'm still recovering. Having 10 inch incisions down each arm is no joke yo! 
  • Since I was laundering my compression garment, I slept in my running tights. If nothing else, I am resourceful. I would be more so if I was actually going for a run this morning. But gotta get my ass in gear for my work day. Need to figure out what to wear that's not arm constructive and is not yoga pants and a tank top...





  • I just asked Magic 8 Ball if I would die during my personal training session tomorrow. This is the answer that I got. Awesome. Today has been unproductive thus far. My arms are not leaking, and haven't for several days, but they ache right down my back. Driving during rush hour, then using them at the computer has really done a number on them. I can really feel the incisions today. Could be the weather too. It's grey and damp out. Getting a few things off my "to do" list then heading back to Hamilton. Another 2 hours in the car. And I get to do it all again tomorrow. Bonus!!!





  • Tagged by a follower for #widn (what I'm doing now). I just purchased some Mederma from Shopper's Drug Mart because I'm supposed to start applying it tomorrow. I'm not gonna lie. The thought of rubbing anything into my incisions right now grosses me right out. Ugh, plastic surgery is a nasty business. My incisions are looking much better and the bruising is fading. 
  • Today is the first day I didn't dress them. And nothing happened but some swelling while at work. My stitches are still not dissolved in several places I'm going to have to go see Dr Patterson this week. He said if they weren't dissolved by Tuesday, I'd have to go back.
  • I'm heading to bed shortly. I'm getting up at 4:30 am to meet Tony for 6. I'm going to do the elliptical first. It's low impact and should be gentle on my thighs. Not sure what his plan for tomorrow is but I shall report back. My 3rd day of not tracking my food. I think it's 3. I do know this. I didn't eat enough but I drank tons of water...
