Good morning guys!
Another Weigh In Wednesday is here. I'm happy to say that I'm down .8 this week to 201.2. Wish it would have been more but once again the weekend sunk me food-wise. And since we did eat Chinese food Saturday too, I'll happily take that .8 and run with it.
Quickie post here but I wanted to mention that we lost our match last night. We gave it our all but it just wasn't in the cards. I think a lot of mental block on my behalf went on because I really think we could have taken them down. We lost 2-6, 4-6. My other teammates didn't fare so well either. We ended up not even starting until closer to 8:40pm (we normally play at 6:30) and it was an actual racquet club that we were playing at rather than the YMCA. Talk about being out of our comfort zone. And then of course, being an "elite" racquet club, they required that we wear all white. Again, no comfort zone there, I like my snazzy colors and bondi bands. And then finally, during the first set I took a pretty bad tumble going after the ball (it went in though and we got the point at least) but in doing so I scrapped both knees pretty badly and also felt a "pop" in my shoulder. I continued playing because other than being shaken up, it didn't affect anything at the time. We finished out the match and I could tell the shoulder was off and that it would be sore this morning.
Holy effing hell. I am in some pretty bad pain right now. (And yes, I'm actually about to head to the local after-hours clinic as soon as they open). I doubt seriously my doctor would be able to take me today anyway. I had to get Chris to help me get dressed and I stupidly drove to work by myself. Turning the steering wheel and getting my seatbelt on were not so fun either.
Soooo, hopefully it will be nothing more than a strain. Mr. Google says it could be anything from a dislocated shoulder to a rotator cuff injury. Uh, I hope it's the first one (strain).
If there is any good news it's that it is not my serving arm at least. Will keep you guys posted as to what the Doc says.
