Headstands and alcohol

Hi team, I'm sorry I haven't blogged for a while- I've been extremely frustrated with my shoulder and unable to do much at all for the past 2 weeks. Good news is that I was able to go for a run over the weekend and am finally able to sleep on my injury side so it's clear things are moving in the right direction.

I've noticed my appetite dramatically reduced too and have lost a few kgs which is one silver lining. I have a body type which actually makes it easier for me to lose weight when I'm not training. With lots of friends and family weddings coming up, I'm pleased to be slimming down but am very much eager to firm up again.

The photo is of my sister and me over the weekend. She loves yoga and we were talking about doing head stands but I couldn't manage one at all with my shoulder. She struggled too but I think that was more to do with the several glasses of wine she'd had :)

I'm still running clean on the alcohol front (as promised) and am loving it. As someone who enjoys wine so much, it makes me laugh how much I enjoy NOT drinking it. So fickle.

Have a great week everyone!

The recovery road does have an end and you’re on your way to it. Hang in there!

    Nice work resisting the vino when your sister was around consuming it. As you see, I miserably failed a similar challenge when Malia visited. Although to be fair- I can't call it failure, when I didn't even try to resist! Sorry your shoulder has been so frustrating. I really appreciate how you still bring positivity and love to your team and trainees when you are going through a bit of a shit time.

      Looks like you are having a whole lot of fun with your sis Jess and glad to hear that the recovery is going well. Good for you for keeping off of the grog and I am sure a few press ups will firm you up! Cheers Brom

        I didn’t know you were out, Jess! Sorry to hear! You are still doing Kettlebell? I had my own off days last week with my tooth coming out...although a shoulder injury is a lot worse...at least a lot more annoying. Rest and ice is usually the best remedy...here’s wishing you feeling better, getting back to full speed and lots of pleasant weather coming your way!
