Thank you @Montserrat , @TopNotch , @Fremen , @NancyTree , @JCU , @Froud , @Nanna Io and @Silent Wolf . We're in but it hasn't gone smoothly. I have four holes in the ceiling where the plumbers went looking for the leaking pipe and came to the conclusion that on of the upstairs showers needs to be re-sealed. I have now had the garage door fixed as it came crashing down the other night with pieces of hinge and springs everywhere. We have people coming out today to remove the mould and fix the water-damaged skirting board. But aside from these teething issues, it is a home.
Thank you @mavie ,@Gandhalfit , and @NancyTree for the birthday wishes. I was that busy yesterday I nearly forgot about it myself.
I haven't been around The Hive for quite a while as still somewhat broken. I am healing and can start doing light strength exercises although my physio is quite cautious. I can just imagine the look on my face as he was trying to explain what I'd done to myself and that glazed look of me not understanding what he was saying, like a Neanderthal. From my limited understanding of shoulders, it was something called an AC where the clavical and scapular meet. Mine had separated and that apparently is not meant to happen which explained the discomfort and loss of strength and mobility. My hard earned restarting everything from scratch again has just gone out the window and my streak is floating in limbo at zero, although I now have enough rehab exercises to do at least fifteen continuous minutes of activity from today onwards. I might even be able to start everything all over again, again. So Foundation Light program and Meditation 30-day challenge. I can't do full gravity exercises yet (full push-ups, burpees etc) yet but will get there but some cardio and some ab work can be done so we'll see. I was going to start them in the new year but honestly why put it off? If I use the excuse of waiting for the new year then I'll probably find another excuse then as well so I should just get it started and get back into the routine.
To be continued later.... (hopefully after doing something meaningful)
Day One: 20/12/2022 (Lets hope this is the last Day One for quite some time, if not, altogether)
AM Gym Session
Rehab exercises including band work, foam roller stretches, cable rows (5 sets of 10) , cable chest press (3 sets of 10, incline push-ups (4 sets of 10)
Foundation Light program (again): Day 1 (not so) Fast Pace Cardio - Done at Level III. Shoulder complained a little during the Side Jacks but as it was only 3 per set I did them slower and didn't push to hard.
Meditation 30-day challenge: Day 1 - Done as "Anytime Breath" (7:12 minutes) via Fit On app.
20 minutes ice pack. Not a bad effort. I will see if the shoulder is okay for some more rehab exercises in another session later. More ice required throughout the day though. I was in trouble from the physio for not enough icing in the three days since I last saw him.
Snowballs dodged: 3
True mate. The fella I'm seeing is only young but after he commits Grievous Bodily Harm on me, I can knock out about 10 push-ups quite easily whereas without his pain I can only do a couple and with considerable discomfort. Our first goal of range of movement is ticked off, now we are working on the slow process of rebuilding strength from almost zero. He nearly fell over when I verbalised my though bubble of doing bench press and deadlifts again. No weights for some time, possibly months. No martial arts for a while and no sparring for considerable time. I'm not good at following direction but this kid has me believing so I have promised to do all my homework (rehab exercises) and ice regularly. And without going overboard (mind you that is a relative term).Physios do tend to nag a bit but I like to think thy know what they're talking about. Take things slowly.
