It is ON !!!

Joe Savoie and I have a competition going on as Joe describes it on www.nencycling.org - Jon and I set up a little bet to help encourage each other to loose weight in the off season. His goal is to weigh 190 by 1 March... Mine is to loose go from 185 by 1 March. For both of us, it is about 15 lbs. Whoever gets there to their goal first or is the closest by 1 March gets a free Dinner.

Ok, now what?

After surgery, I thought recovery was going to last forever. I visited the therapsit a couple days after surgery and was given some rudimentary exercises that were supposed to take me six weeks to do at full range of motion.

Wednesday I went back to the therapist, one week after surgery. I went through my exercises for the therapist. Huh, you are at the four week level. Can I do more? No.



So, its more of the same - going through the motions. But - its only 4 1/2 weeks now.

Getting Back Into Things

Slowly returning back to the world. Cautiously. And optimistically.

Sugery. Tomorrow. Noon.

Pretty much tells it all. Except for the part about wearing a shoulder immobilizer for the next 6 weeks.Then 6 weeks of therapy.

So, look out January: Here I come.
