Tuesday was another regular old day. My shoulder – as I mentioned before – feels a bit better so I did some upper-body exercises. Mainly that consisted of curls, hammer curls and tricep pressdowns. I could feel a bit of a pull on my shoulder when I was doing the tricep exercises, so I didn’t want to push it too much. But I am a couple weeks away from 12 weeks post surgery, and I hope that means I am close to being able to start lifting again.
I did it in a circuit style as I have always enjoyed doing, so I was able to get a good sweat going despite not doing anything too crazy. I sometimes wonder if I do curls wrong because I don’t feel it the way I do other exercises. Maybe I need to concentrate on them a bit more… I know I try to avoid using my shoulders or back or anything else, but I still don’t get that soreness when doing curls. I don’t feel the pump!
Other than that, I got lots of walking done, ate what I planned to eat (even though I wanted to eat so much more) and had League night with my friends. I went to bed on time and had a pretty good rest. One thing I’ve noticed lately is I am getting a headache through the day, not sure why. It seems to go away once I eat… so maybe that means intermittent fasting isn’t working. Ugh… another thing to go wrong.
