Friday. The day everyone waits for all week long, including (especially?) me! This week is no exception, as it has been a really rough one, working hard to get a little bit of movement back in this crazy elbow. The other day, J asked me to show him how far I could straighten it. I did. He seemed shocked. He wanted to know why I couldn't straighten it further, and was it just because it was hurting me? I explained that no, I could deal with some additional pain, that will subside as I adjusted. I literally CANNOT straighten it further than that. This has increased through the week already, but I am not there yet, and I don't think I will be for a few more weeks. But I will keep doing my exercises, keep icing, keep working hard to get myself back into full working order soon!
In other news, I have signed up for the next round of Tina's Best Body Bootcamp!
Thanks Tina, once again, for hosting!
I have been putting plenty of pressure on myself to make sure that I am getting my walks in every day. It is kind of tough stuff as a general rule, and maybe I should relax a little, but I definitely have some anxiety if I do not get it all done every day. So I figure by walking, I am taking it easy on my body, and I am getting in enough activity to keep my anxiety levels down, which is just as important! If I have high anxiety, then I will definitely do additional harm to myself as well as potentially to the baby from just a high heart rate, etc. So nice, easy long walks it is!
If you have been pregnant, what were your workouts like?
