Shoulder update (post-doctor); Thanksgiving feast!

Good news from the doctor: nothing really major is wrong with my shoulder. She said there’s probably no way I could have gone 5 weeks without seeing her about it if it was a bad injury, and she also said that I wouldn’t have had any improvement. She told me that even the most mundane shoulder injuries usually take 6-8 weeks to heal, so I’m probably looking at another 2-3 weeks before I can lift again. I was prescribed an anti-inflammatory, which should help it heal a little faster. If it’s not healed in another 3 weeks, I go back for an x-ray and an MRI. I don’t think any of that will be necessary, as it’s been feeling pretty good the last few days.

On a side note, the doctor was looking at my records from my last visit, which was almost a year ago (right before I started my fitness program). She was amazed at my weight loss and my blood pressure change. She asked me all kinds of questions about how I did it, what I ate and how I worked out. She didn’t even give me any grief over the amount of protein I consume, which surprised me because many doctors don’t understand the protein requirements of weight lifters. Anyway, I still have to go to a separate lab to have my bloodwork done. I can’t wait to see my cholesterol levels!

Okay, today is Thanksgiving in the USA. If you are celebrating Thanksgiving, I suggest you relax, enjoy yourself and eat whatever the heck you want without giving it a second thought – I know I will! Consider it a reward for all the days your stuck to your fitness plan and diet, even when you didn’t want to.

Just because it’s Thanksgiving doesn’t mean I won’t be working out. Today is leg day and I’m going to really hit them hard. Once I’m done with that, I have to get busy cooking. I’m going all out and cooking a traditional Thanksgiving feast for me, Lisa and her parents. Have a great day, see you tomorrow!
