It's Friday!

Not that it matters to me because work fuck-off time but holy crap, fall is in full effect.  I've been wearing sweatpants and sweaters the whole week and we had to change to our fall blankets because it's been so chilly.

+ Just two weeks into Operation: Shoulder Rehab For Real and already, I can't take it anymore.  My PT said that the entire kinetic chain in my upper body is pretty much messed up *cries*.  In addition to localized shoulder joint/rotator cuff issues, my adductors, pecs and right side of my core are so tight that it's pulling my body in all sorts of weird directions and straining the ligaments/tendons.  It was also the source of my lower back issues a few months ago.

But some good news:  I've been cleared for (light) weight lifting for my upper body but no pushups, bench press or shoulder press <-- WHAT ELSE IS THERE.  Can I just confess that physiotherapy workouts are so fucking boring and slow?  I just need to focus on the goal (healing) and suppress my inner ahole bro which makes me feel like I have to justify to those around me that I swear, I can lift heavier.

+ I decided to be a smarty pants and start playing trivia.  These apps - don't get them. They're way too addictive and will drive you and everyone around you bonkers because you'll be messaging them non-stop for help.

When you get so desperate for answers that you resort to asking Facebook (because Google yielded nothing):

Even bestie got fed up with me, LOL.

+ This paleo pumpkin loaf is delicious!  Whoda thunk adding coconut milk makes this so delicious?  I also added a few chocolate chips because chocolate chips.

+ With the discovery that my body hates Vital Proteins collagen powder,  I've been drinking bone broth instead. I wish I could whip up a batch of this all the time but it's damn expensive AND takes hours to make.
there's some weird shit in here but it's liquid gold.

+ Have you watched Vikings? If not, get on it, asap; it's SO GOOD.  Season 5 starts next month.


It's Thanksgiving weekend for us Canadian folks which means long weekend, baby!

Have a great weekend!
