Damn bursitis!

Hip & knee still giving me serious grief. Hip is sore and tender to touch. Knee is sore and weak, can barely stand to put any weight on it. I was baffled as to what I could have done then I realized – I had potatoes AND tomatoes twice yesterday

Too many nightshades in one day!

::headdesk::

So I’m tucking the awesome blueberries I have in the freezer for later (they are also nightshades), wearing my comfy flat sneakers to work, and…. probably going to have to use my cane today GRRR!

Well, it is “Show your Geekiness” day or something like that at work LOL

Monday 4/23 Workout

Hip flared up PLUS 4 day camping trip PLUS work issue equals no lifting for me. To help deal with the hip inflammation I’ve removed nightshades from my diet, changed to Krill Omega-3 oil, and increased joint supplements (so tired I can’t remember what all I take LOL)

PT hip stretches
px warmup

squat – 15/10 – 55lbs
pushup – 14/10 – 45degree
bent over rows – 15/15 – 55lbs
stepup – 15/15 – no weight
jackknife – 8/8 – no weight

ice on hip for 10 mins

I was very nauseous after working out. It took about 20 mins to recover. Realized I worked out on empty stomach: nuked yam at 7:30am, bed by 8:15am, wake at 12:30pm, back to sleep at 2pm, up at 6:30pm, got dressed and worked out.

I had intended to just see what I could, not push my hip/knee, but was moving really well so did what I could to fatigue.

I noticed the nausea first when doing my pushups. It was a tightness in across the base of my throat that I was interpreting as feeling sick. It stopped when I finished my pushups. It returned as soon as I stopped working out. I may have drank too much water and stopped to abruptly.

I’ll sip instead of gulp, and ‘walk it off’ instead of collapsing next time. I also suspect that I may have been dehydrated due to the Benedryl I took when I woke at 12:30. I woke up congested, snuffy, and sneezing.
