I had an appointment with my chiropractor today. When Dr. Jen asked me how I was doing today, I told her that I’d hurt myself. I explained about how, sadly, it was NOT when I was lifting heavy stuff or doing push-ups or whatnot. I was simply doing some stretching (I can’t remember the specifics – whether I was in yoga class or warming up before a workout or stretching after lifting or what). Suddenly, the muscle in my upper right back, over my shoulder blade, went “NOOOO!!!!” and hurt. I told her that now that muscle hurt whenever I tried to do push-ups or other horizontal motions – or carried heavy things – or shoveled snow. So I’d stopped doing push-ups over a week ago. I was now behind in my 20,013 push-ups in 2013 challenge and frustrated and hoped she and/or the massage therapist could tell me when I’d be healed so I could get back to it.

I’ve totally been slacking on the blog! I know! No excuse, but I’ve been busy lifting, pressing, pulling, and squatting heavy things. I haven’t even been playing with yarn much!
I’ve started stage 6 of New Rules of Lifting for Women. For the most part, I’m still listing my accomplishments each stage.
