Working Through Pain

Today I did my chest workout. I had to be very careful doing exercises that involved using my shoulders, which was all of them. Working through the pain was not easy. I think the shoulder is going to be more sore than my chest later on. I will definitely be taking pain medication tonight.

Next week I will be in Louisiana for a friend’s funeral. Then I will be in Texas to visit my Dad. It will be a  break from working out unless we find a gym we can go to. But if not it will give my shoulders some time to heal.

This is my 9th week in the gym. I have lost 10 pounds and am starting to notice subtle changes in my body. Over all I am feeling pretty good. My back pain flares up sometimes though. Its just the result of the back surgery. Of course it is not nearly as bad as before the surgery. I am feeling strong.

I have to say though,  I am still not as disciplined when it comes to eating. It’s because fried foods taste so good, and so do sugary drinks. Anyway, there is nothing new in this area. I have repeatedly eaten the wrong things. I can’t seem to help it.

One thought on “Working Through Pain

  1. Good job! Stick with it and you will get great results! If you have trouble with the food side… try and eat 1 less fried dinner a week.
    Try cutting down first before going cold turkey 😉
