I haven’t posted for a while. I’ve been doing the eliptical and a little bit of random weight lifting with my legs and biceps since I hurt my neck. Every day I wake up thanking the Universe that there’s nothing majorly wrong with it. Usually if I get it cranked or something, I get a really stiff neck, at worst to the point where I can’t turn my head to the side for a day or so.
But last Thursday through Saturday, I couldn’t hold my head up STRAIGHT without feeling PRESSURE on my spine. I was so freaking scared. But the doc did an x-ray and said he didn’t see anything out of place, and if there was any hernia or bulge, then it’d push on nerves and I’d be getting tingling and pain all up and down my arms and back and stuff, and there wasn’t any of that.
On Saturday, I took a paid sick day. :/ I’ve been watching a TON of One Piece during the time I can’t train. I think I’ve been watching like 3-4 hours a day. lol So I’m almost done the Impel Down part of the series, eps 420ish to like 443 now.
So yesterday I felt pretty good, but I still wanted to just make sure, so I went to Gold’s Gym before work. I got some good stuff done at work.
Today I went to Ground Slam in the morning! I had to leave a little early, but I did technique, and that’s all I wanted to do. I gotta write it down before the day is over….Brittany from Team Rodeo in Yokosuka showed up! 😀 We worked together. We did rubber guard until it came out of our ears. I LOVE IT OMG Katsumura-san is such a fabulous teacher.
Brittany, your training clothes are like 100000x cooler than mine. o_O; Actually, the only reason I wear a T shirt over my rash guard when training is cause I’m kinda shy….in that regard….. lol
Well, to each her own! XD
It was so fun training.
Then I had a lunch date with my former host mother Sadako-san, and she showed up at Kappa Zushi with Takagi-san, her cousin, who referred to herself in the third person as “Mother” so I always thought she was talking about MY mom. ^^;;; She was like “I’ll give you Mom’s phone number.” And I was like, “How does she know my mom’s number?” ^^;; lol
Then Sadako-san (host mom) said, “I told Takagi-san I’d show her your apartment! :D” lol So I took them to my place and thank GOODNESS I always keep it pretty tidy. ^^;;; I chatted with them and then my host mother fell asleep on my sofa sitting up IN THE MIDDLE Of our conversation (it was so cute, but come on, she’s 80 years old, so it’s okay ^^;;) and I continued chatting with Takagi-san until she woke up. hahaha
So now I’m getting ready to meet my former student friend from Atsugi this evening. Hopefully tomorrow morning I won’t have any work so I can go to morning training 😀 I think my neck is better now!
SO HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPYyyyyyyyyyyy again! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
