4 Months Out
My shoulder is starting to get better but I will not be going back to Curves. My PCP wrote a note to them and my membership was cancelled. The machines (and smart card) caused me to overwork my muscles and I ended up with tendinitis in the rotator cuff. At first they thought it might be a rotator cuff tear but it has improved. So now I need to go walking or figure some way to get cardio in. I'd do the Wii at home but my kids and husband are out of school and I don't want to make a fool out of myself!
I've made a few poor food choices lately. I got an awesome deal on some all natural potato chips (they were free!) so I bought them. And ate them. Not much, maybe half a bag over the past month, but I think that was too much. I also ate some Easter candy - which gave me my first experience with dumping syndrome. That was not fun, and it taught me to avoid sugar.
My sister-in-law is studying cosmetology, so I had her do my hair last week. She gave me a wonderful haircut with long layers. I can wear it straight or curly, which I love! She also gave me a hint of color and subtle highlights. I think it looks great. Next time, I may go bolder.
So I'm off for the summer now. No school, no work! Though I've toyed with the idea of getting a part time job. It all depends on my husband, he's looking for an internship in HVAC. I'll have to stay home with the kids if he gets one. Thinking of getting back in to cake decorating while I'm still in school. Now that I've lost a lot of weight maybe I can stand being on my feet longer, but I still worry about the pain in my hands.
