Almost there Thursday

Whew, first long week back to school has gone slowly!  This week dance started up which means the dance conditioning class, too, at night and I have to try to make it all work out w/ my own workouts.  This is my next goal in parkour and I've been told I should be able to do it. But, I don't want to rip my hands which I did yesterday and I don't want callused gymnastics hands. I'm such a priss!

I'm teaching step this morning and really need to go practice now. I'm such a master of procrastination!  I've been working hard at that 5 lb overnight weight gain and have lost four of it.  I could barely do silks at my old weight; I can't imagine it w/ more weight!

Jean, just reading the things you do makes me tired. Can you wear gloves for Parkour? I pretty much have to have my gloves for everything now that I have gotten in the habit of wearing them. 

My elbow is on fire today. The Insanity class I did last night involved so many pushup or plank positions. I am going to have to do the modifies next time. I'd rather have my pride wounded than my elbow. 

Storms today and I have to work late so if I make it to the gym at all I will probably just hop on the tread or eliptical.

  • I'm going to try gymnastics taping next time to see if that helps. I know people get gymnastics gloves but I don't want to do that. I think part of it is that your skin thins as you get older so rips happen more easily. 


That sounds smart to take it easy on the elbow!  Are you doing any exercises to help that area?  There are options that might not hurt the area as much but still challenge it as much.

I was just going to recommend those gymnastics hand hook thingies. Yuck on blisters and callouses. I am averse to any kind of pain, and watching that video makes me think of my arms popping out of their sockets...gee, I think I am a Paris's now, too, or I am weary of further injuries. The other day, I try to head standing yoga despite my physical therapist telling me not to, and I felt a major nerve pain that went through my back. That was the last headstand I will ever do. So, I do the handstands for an inversion. :O Karla, I empathize with all of the pain. I think about going back to the chiropractor, but it sounds so Controversia. I had no pain while I went to the chiropractor, but I don't want to do further damage. Too much work to do. I am helping my friend who I've been mentoring and her new position, and I told her I would work on something else sees the reports for her. Then, I have to do my own job, then I have a yoga intensive class tonight, and I have to make chocolate covered strawberries for my mother's birthday, and pack. Tomorrow I have work followed by the drive to see my mom and ballroom dancing. No rest for the weary.

Didn't make it here yesterday.  Busy day of running errands.  

No work today but I have an ultrasound this afternoon to do a re-check of my remaining ovary.  She'll either decide it needs to come out or I'll probably have to go back again in a few months for another ultrasound.  

Weirdness this morning.  I was feeling downright nauseous and then was suddenly hit by a bad case of... unpleasantness.  No workout for me.

The thing w/ the lache and other moves like that is you have to have strong shoudlers and keep the shoulder blades engaged. In obstacle course training, they had us jump onto the silks, hanging on and then swing to the next, etc. Almost everyone jumped and rather than keeping their arms strong, they let go and let their bodies fall and jerk their shoulders. Ow.  I'm sure mine would pop out of the socket if I did that.  But, if a physical therapist told me not to do a move, I'd probably listen!  I think there is so much that we can correct through exercise but we need the right person to do it.  Interesting that you can do a handstand and not a headstand!  I'd think a handstand would be harder on the shoulders. I can easily do a headstand but don't have the skill/confidence to do a handstand.

I noticed you weren't here yesterday and chalked it up to post-BM/post Fun something.  If you have your ovary removed, does that mean you wouldn't have your period any more? I'd be all for that. I hope your nausea/sickness goes away quickly...and that the morning timing is just coincidental.

It means I'd have to go on HRT.  I already don't have my period anyone (I had the ablation when I had the right ovary out).  The ultrasound tech said the cyst looks about the same but I'll wait for the doc's call to see what she wants to do.

That's right; I'd forgotten about the ablation. In hindsight, I would have had that done a decade ago.  Do you automatically have to go on HRT? I have a friend who had both ovaries removed and she's had no problems from it, luckily.

You know, I'm not sure.  I just assumed that I would but I don't know.  We'll see what the doc wants to do.
