I had an excellent back and bicep workout yesterday. I lifted more yesterday than I was able to just before my vacation, so I think nine days of rest did my body and mind good in more ways than one. I feel pretty comfortable doing back and bicep work even with my shoulder injury: my orthopedic doctor and physical therapist both said working those two muscle areas shouldn’t present a problem, and so far they’ve been right.

Unfortunately my shoulder has been grinding and popping more than ever lately when I do things like yard work and wash the car. The pain flare-ups are also more frequent. I’ll be calling my orthopedic doctor today and setting up an appointment so we can take the next (and hopefully final) step: surgery. I wish that it had not taken so long to come to this, but I had to try all the less invasive procedures before resorting to surgery.

I’m slowly making a dent in the work that piled up while I was gone. I received lots of emails while I was on vacation, many of which I have not yet had a chance to read. Also, I’ve barely had time to glance at the forum since I’ve been back. I hope to be caught up by the end of the week. The first week back from vacation is always busy, but I’m doing it with a smile on my face. It’s great to be back, and I still feel very relaxed and calm from our wonderful vacation!

I’m off to the weight room. Today I’m working my abs and doing 23 minutes of HIIT cardio. Hope your day is a good one, see you tomorrow.
