Good Evening Everyone !
It is with extreme happiness that I can tell you I finally did it = got my tookus back to the gym!
I got my new medication after my rhumetologist stepped in . It arrived on Friday and I started the injections that night.
I am still nauseaous, but it is not as much as it was before. I am hopeful that after a few weeks, it will decrease significantly . The best part is that my doctor okay me getting back to the gym as long as I ” listen to my body “. So, I contacted my coach Jane at Crossroads Strength and Conditioning to see if it would be okay if I came back with my issues. And she said of course! Definitly knew that I was going to basically do everything modified but I had to get moving. ANYTHING is better than nothing, right?!
So, started new meds.
Ready to go back to the gym.
And oh yeah, decided to jump on the Gluten Free train. Let me explain : I had read multiple articles regarding Gluten and inflammation , so I figure, what the heck, I’ll give it a shot. So far I am on day 3. Honestly, this is 2 days better than I thought I was going to do. I’m not sure how long that I can keep it going, but if it helps, I am going to give it a whirl.
I got back into the gym and the warm up itself was already killing me , lol. Onto the workout : here is my severly modified version . No laughing out loud, 🙂
30 wall throws ( like the baby sister of the wall ball ) just tossed the ball at the wall
20 Step ups on the little box
10 DB snatches!!!! 15l bs —–> I LOVE SNATCHES! AND I COULD DO THESE NOT MODIFIED!!!
5 Push ups – these I did standing up leaning into the bar on the rack. Truth be told, I totally could feel this in my arms and chest way more than any pushups I had done before.
I completed all 4 rounds – total victory ! And under 20 minutes!
This was complete baby steps. And this will be for quite some time, I am sure. This time around , I need to do the baby steps. I used to get really frustrated when I thought of how far I had come or how much I could lift or do, but this time, I can’t be like that . It’s wasted energy. I am just going to roll with it and see how it goes.
Its been a productive week so far. Hoping to get back in the gym tomorrow. Starting slow with 2 times a week.
Gotta Keep Swimming !!!!
