So last night was date night and DH and I are on the couch eating. I lean over to cuddle with him and sharp pain shoots down my left shoulder blade all the way down my back and it starts spasming. Yikes! I must have overdone it on the arm workout or something! It continues to do this every time I move my arm just right. So, we cut date night short and I went and hopped into a hot bath to try to soothe the muscles. My heating pad died, so hot bath was the only way I had to get heat to it. It felt much better after the bath. I don't know what I did, but I hope I don't do it again!
I'm probably not going to work out this morning, even though I got up early and dressed and all that. My shoulder is aching and my hip joint muscles are too. It feels like it could start spasming at any time. Maybe I need another day of rest. Just in case, and so that I'm not spasming at my friends house, I won't work out.
Salad in a Jar party today! I'm looking forward to it but I'm also nervous. What if my anxiety acts up? I get so nervous around crowds and 17 ladies have said they are going, including me. I know maybe 7 of the ladies going, but not very well, just casually know them from church. I'm not going to give up and not go though! I'm really looking forward to it. Though I feel weird because I won't be bringing anything. The hostess knows about our money situation and insisted that I come and she would provide me with what I needed including the jars for making the salads. She's such a sweety. Hopefully I won't be too uncomfortable. But I am thinking about it the same way I think about yoga; I'm going to be a little uncomfortable at first, I've got to get used to it and it is okay.
DH agreed to find a hotel that has a gym for when we go to the wedding. I'm so happy that I won't have to stop my workouts for the few days we'll be gone. Whew! I'll probably let myself sleep a little later and then go workout, it is, after all, a vacation of sorts. But I still want to get my workouts in. Just like this morning, I knew I probably wasn't going to work out today, but I still got up on time, because I don't want to get out of the habit. If I let myself sleep in a few days in a row, it will be super hard to get up early the next day. Then I'm back to struggling to getting my workouts in, and I don't want to go there again!
Have a good Sunday!
