119.2 this AM. What. The. Heck. I forgot to eat dinner on Wednesday last week and had a light day yesterday because I went to the dentist and got a filling but that's it really. Been "going" a lot more too for some reason.
Very busy socially, overextended even. Same as usual for summer. Lots of swimsuit time! My 4th was awesome - went to a friend's farm and shot 20 and 12 gauge shotguns, a Mosin Nagant 9130, fireworks and jumped into a swimming hole. Went swimming at a friend's pool Friday, then partook in a short hike and visited a swimming hole on Saturday. I took a few days off from the gym and went back this AM and it feels goooooood.
In addition to my fun fun fun fillings, yesterday AM I had an appt with a sports doctor. No one told me he was going to be hot and bend my legs over my head in every which way - wooooo!
Said it's likely piriformis syndrome (I kinda suspected that anyway) and not a disc issue, prescribed me some stretches, said if no improvement in 4 weeks I should do PT. We'll see how that goes!
Roommate and I signed leases for 8/1 - we inherited a friend's HUGE and COMFY couch which RECLINES, and we have a month to gradually move our possessions downstairs. Band practice tonight. It's all I can do at this point to pretend I care...
Consistency is key with workouts. It's less complicated than you are making it. Lift twice a week, run twice a week, hike or walk other days. Put in like 20-30 min/day. Eat what makes you feel good. You got this!
Measurements and shape are so key. It's really encouraging that you're so close to your "fittest" measurements! Hope moving goes well!
What's the 20 day challenge?
I am so relieved to hear good news about your dad. Your bottom half will catch up!
Not sure about shoulder friendly ideas...what about dips instead of pushups?
