It's amazing what havoc can a silly little injury like this one do to your daily activities. Typing is not painful anymore, but it's still a pain in the butt, and I keep misspelling stuff and having to correct mistakes over and over again.
But you guys rock and I am really lucky to have you all as friends.
In other (much better) news, I had my assessment with my trainer yesterday. I must confess that I was anxious, as I had been struggling with finding a balance between my calorie intake and the protein/carb/fat ratio. The fact that the scale showed little change did not do anything to improve my mood. In fact, the only change was a gain of about half a pound.
As you can imagine, I was a bit discouraged.
That is, until we took all the measurements and did all the calculations. And lo and behold! It so happened that I had lost 2.5 lbs of fat, and gained 3 lbs of muscle. Whooo hoooo!!!
It seems that I finally figured things out, so for the time being I will keep doing what I am doing.
As for my program, I will have to make some adaptations on the way I lift to allow for the limited use of my left hand, but we already have a plan in place.
At any rate, my typing allowance for non-work related stuff is running out, so it's back to the salt mines.
I can hear the whip cracking already.
