Spin class before work
Swim practice mid-day: 4300 pain-free yards! I found out on Monday that I do NOT need to have shoulder surgery. The doctor told me to take Aleve (or the like) AM/PM, do my shoulder exercises, and consider getting a cortisone shot if the pain persists. Wow, drugs really do work when you give them a chance… I still have some degeneration in my shoulder but apparently nothing serious. Anybody have cortisone stories to share?
Read: just started The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd. So far, so good! I’ve been fooled by her before though. I think I liked Secret Life of Bees until about 3/4 of the way through. We’ll see. I could use a good book. I was underwhelmed by 2 out of the last 3 I read.
And EAT! Soymilk hot chocolate for a “recovery” drink. Any excuse for hot chocolate works for me. Veggie mash mash-up for dinner – that means I’m starting with Frugal Feeding’s recipe and going rogue from there. Not sure what’s going in yet, but it will be hot and tasty and vegetarian.
Let the weekend begin. I might even have a drink! Hold the vermouth.
