HGH & FMS Experiment

Where Human Growth Hormone Meets Fibromyalgia

I woke up with energy today, but not a whole lot of oomph. I woke up early, and the first thing on my mind was “work out today… weights… ugh.” I battled a whole lot of rationalization (Hey, it’s Saturday, the Y will be crowded, there will be too many men hogging the weight machines, there’s housework to be done, Fark to surf through, porn to be downloaded, Wil Wheaton to stalk…) but finally decided I had to go.

But, the good thing is, it wasn’t a battle of energy levels, it was a battle of degrees of laziness.

I spent about 40-45 minutes in the weight room working on mostly my upper body; chest, back, delts, biceps, triceps, and abs—and was fairly happy that there was no one else in there other than the Spouse Thingy for a long time, and after that just one significantly elderly man (who was kind of cute, in any case)—and then hit the pool for an hour.

Originally we’d only planned on spending 30 minutes in the pool, but I wasn’t quite ready to be done at that point. I tend to just walk in the water (or run; I’m sure I look like a total dork trying to run in the pool, but right now I’m embracing my inner dorkiness), but today I gave swimming a try. Not too many laps, just enough to remind me I need to seriously work on my endurance.

Also just enough laps to make me wonder if anyone makes a womens’ single piece swimsuit that doesn’t delivery reliable wedgies.

Pain levels for today were fairly low, just a little aching in my lower back and my knees. My weight was the same this morning, still at –3 pounds.

And no, I don’t really download porn.
Really.
I swear.
