Happy Thursday

First of all, thanks to all of you who sent good vibes my way in regards to my poor fractured finger. It gave me warm fuzzies. :-)

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.

Belfebe out.
