I went to the gym this morning. I treaded the mill, and I used some weight machines. I think something is wrong with my shoulder. I have a doc appt. for January. Oh, and I have a new awesome music mix to workout to, and did I mention it is awesome?

How is everybody doing today? Prefab? Ceph? Coco?

Thanks.

Going to class is what makes all the difference for me. It's a small class so I know the people there. Just going to a gym and doing my own routine is too yucky. The external motivation and being in a group helps tremendously, although some days it's really hard to put on the brave public face.

I don't think I'd be able to keep it up on my own.

I can't remember if I mentioned it to you, but mood stabilization is an important reason for my exercise efforts. So I try to keep up with the solo efforts at home to prevent feeling even worse. ... And so I don't pass out in class.

So that was you tracking grist through the place?

Ugh, sorry about the shoulder. It's always good to have those things checked. I was trying not to do the common male thing of upper body work but little legs. I ended up overextending my knees, and had to go off the weights and do some rehab/physio work. I'm probably being overly cautious, but I'd like to keep my original knees and keep exercising. I've since studied up on mastering proper form for those leg exercises. (For example, when doing squats with weights, do not go too low -- knees should stay behind the toes.)

Got a tracklist for the music?

Hi Starrysky,

My day was busy. I did get a thirty minute walk in. I had a lengthy appt with my new therapist. There were mountains of paperwork and history questions. I was there almost two hours. I seen my primary docís PA last Thursday. Iíve been having problems with my right shoulder. I have muscle spasms in it and it hurts to raise it up. After she examined me, she concluded that there were signs of me needing physical therapy. I was rear ended last month. Iíve been going to the chiropractor. The PA said I need physical therapy not the chiropractor. She put in a referral for it. Itís raining tonight so I did not walk my dog far or as long as I normally do. I hope everyone is doing ok.

Hey Ceph, you didn't mention it to me, but it makes complete sense. I did a lot of athletic stuff in high school. When I quit, senior year, my depression came out in full force. I think that exercise really helps with mood. So does staying busy.

I think its great that you go to a class with, it sounds like, people you like. I went to a gym near my parents house for a while, and I just did not feel like I clicked / connected with the people in my classes or the staff. It didn't help that I struggled with deep depression, felt shy, and didn't show up most of the time. So people didn't really get a chance to know me. I love the gym I go to now. Friendlier.

But yeah, I was curious to know your motivation behind being able to go. Thanks for sharing with me.

Awww yeah. Was totally me

Yeah, my shoulder's been bothering me for a couple months now. It doesn't hurt A LOT. But it hurts. Like a dull ache, and when I move it in certain ways it hurts more.

Overextending? What's that? I have issues with my knees. Not good at certain yoga poses because of it. I don't know what is wrong with them, but I just keep safe with the poses and modify. So you're saying you might have to get surgery? I don't think you're being overly cautious. I kind of am like that too, like I want to make sure I'm moving the right way. And the safe way.

Maybe you can tell me about ballet. I was a ballet dancer in middle and high school, and I still walk with my feel out sometimes. But all the people I talk to now say to keep my feet forward. I think that my legs grew differently though, because I was basically a kid when I did it. I think ballet made my adult legs a little wonky. I just do what's comfortable. I think thats important.

I do have a tracklist! I will post it later!!

Wow! Yeah, I'm very familiar with new therapist paperwork! I hope it goes well with your new therapist. I'm glad you went to the PA about your shoulder! I'm sorry it is bothering you! Hopefully now you can start healing with a PT.

It rained here last night too. Then it snowed. We had weird weather here yesterday. It was warmer, then rained, then snowed.
