o.O  

So tired this morning. So HUNGRY this morning. And my shoulder is pinchy, so I’m going to prop myself up on the couch and write instead of going to swim right away. Maybe it’ll relax after a couple hours. (I need to learn to sleep on my left side. That would help.)

Notes from yesterday’s chat room: general agreement that the difficulty isn’t so much exercising as getting out the front door. It’s so much easier with a gym buddy, somebody who expects you to be there. This week’s challenge, then, is to exercise/walk/whatever 3x this week, and report back on Sunday. I’ll put a post up on Sunday so people can report, since there probably won’t be a chat room. Also, question asked: what’s a reasonable weight loss goal? Answer: generally speaking, a pound a week.

I was supposed to do it last night and didn’t, and don’t want to take the time this morning, but people seemed interested, so sometime today I /will/ post explanations on how to do some basic Pilates exercises, and if I can borrow a video camera at some point maybe I’ll make that demonstration video.

I’ve just eaten breakfast 3 hours earlier than I usually do. I fear today is going to be a Hungry Day.

Off to the salt mines now.

I have no idea what half of that first paragraph means. :) The ouch starts at the inside of my right shoulderblade, near the spine, and radiates through the ulnar nerve in the elbow and into the pinky when it's bad. And yeah, it's clearly repetitive-motion, and I've had it for years, but this recent flare-up is the worst it's been in a long time.

There's a sports therapist thing place here in town. I could go talk to them. If I ever have money. :)

Augh! So much easier to just /show/ you!

Does it wake you up in the middle of the night at all? Particularly the elbow-pinky sensation? (Could be trigger points referring from the subscap; could also be some brachial [ie, arm] nerve impingement at the neck/shoulder.)

You most definitely should. You should find the money /somewhere/.

Nope, doesn't wake me up.

*wry look* Someday I'll explain how I get paid... :)

*chuckle* I believe you have, a while ago.

Scrounge under the couch cushions? :D
