Because I am ELATED that this coat fits me, muscles and all!
Not only that, it doesn’t restrict my range of motion hardly at all!! Hooray!!!!
Remember, I’ve been stalking this coat since OCTOBER!!!!! I resisted the first sale price of $188, still a little steep for me. Plus it was right after Christmas, if you know what I mean. But last week, they dropped it again, and I snagged it for less than $100. Bonus: I feel like I’m ready to travel to Narnia at a moment’s notice.
I’ve actually had it for a few days, but I had to wait for it to be cold enough to wear. Hahahaha!! Take that, polar vortex!! :)
So I was up early to go to breakfast with Kevin James. We planned to go to Hash, but sadly they have their hours posted incorrectly online — they don’t open until 8AM. So we settled for Panera.
I just couldn’t do bread this morning, so I tried the Panera Power Breakfast Bowl, and I asked them to add bacon. It was just okay, in my opinion, but at least I feel good after eating it. I think plain turkey tasted a little weird to me before 9AM. Also, I should have known this, but the bacon wasn’t hot. It was just like bacon bits. That makes sense, but it was still kind of a bummer. Oh well. Nothing some coffee won’t help.
So I’ve been feeling LOUSY since Friday’s night’s competition. Two days in a row of toes-to-bar plus a lot of overhead work didn’t do my shoulder region any favors. I have been so tight, and it hurts to move my arms suddenly. I’m most comfortable if I am sitting slumped and with my shoulders squished in. Not cool. I went to CrossFit on Monday (and totally sandbagged it) hoping that I would feel better after moving around. Nope. So I took yesterday off, and I’m finally starting to feel mostly better today. They were so bad that it was bothering me to play piano. That’s ridiculous!!!!!
While I was languishing at home, I noticed that the Nike Training Club app had some updates, including a new yoga workout. So I gave it a try. 45 minutes is a little too long for me, but it felt (mostly) good to stretch it out. I couldn’t quite do sun salutation with my bum shoulders. I like using the app because it’s faster than turning on a dvd. Patient much????
Don’t worry, the puppies kept me company. Here are B&P being tortured by the cats that like to camp out on our porch furniture:
They have such a hard life!!!
What’s the longest it’s ever taken you to recover from a workout? Pretty sure this it for me. I never want to do t2b again!!!!!
Have you ever read the Chronicles of Narnia? Which is your favorite book or character? No, the movies absolutely do not count, especially not the newer versions. I probably read each book easily 10 times before the age of 18. The Magician’s Nephew and The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe are my two faves.
P.S. This corduroy vest from Anthro is also a good fit for CrossFit muscles. Let your biceps roam free!!! Sizes medium & up are left.
