an update of sorts

So, you know my little sister, the one I talk about a lot that is growing up too fast and I love her blah, blah, blah....This one. Well, I am mad at that betch, because I am pretty sure she has gotten me sick. Saw her on Monday night and she was sick and last night I went to bed with a tiny bit of a cough, nothing crazy, but then....then I woke up in the middle of the night with the world's sorest throat. (I probably should have called Guinness, because I know it was a record).



Womp...

Womp...

Womp.

This better not get any worse. Ain't nobody got time for this.


In other updates in Brooke's life, started my second week of physical therapy for my knee. Good news: I really like my PT, she used to run track at Penn State and she knows her PT stuff when it comes to my knee and the problems that are leading to the pain (long story short, it's not my knee that is the cause of the problem - it's my glutes and hips). The bad news: for how strong I am, all my stabilizer and small muscles are pretty much nonexistent. She basically told me I have the glute strength of a 12 year old girl and a lot of the simple exercises are really hard for me. It's quite embarrassing and humbling at the same time. I don't like it. 

She also said I probably need to take it a little easier with my workouts right now to get the inflammation in my IT band down...but I don't wanna! Hopefully spin class won't make it hurt tonight, because I am going either way.....

So yeah, basically I am a horrible excuse for a human who is sick and dying and weak. Great. 

Thanks a lot, life. Okay, I am being dramatic. I will stop now.

I hope your throat feels better soon. Nothing worse than a bad sore throat! Hot tea with honey helps me. Just a suggestion :)

Cheers,

I'm sorry you have a weak butt. And I'm not trying to get you down but spin class usually doesn't help my knee, but it doesn't make it hurt worse either. But I really hope PT starts making it better!

My PT told me the same thing when I went 2 years ago for my knee. I know my hips are still weak, and I'm still trying to strengthen them. Mine also recommended using a foam roller on my IT band, which hurts like heck, but it helps too.

I think you are allowed to be dramatic. Happens to the best of us when we get sick.

Feel better lady!

So not cool that someone who wants to exercise kinda can't. Let's trade your motivation for my laziness and help each other out, what do you think?

Anytime someone mentions Penn State feel a surge of pride, because I went there. Well, I drove by it every day getting to work when I lived in PA.

Feel better, and don't you dare send me any shit in the mail, I will not risk sickness.

when you're sick, there are no rules so be dramatic and then take a nap!

SPIN CLASS?! You must be nuts if you chose that over laying in bed watching HIMYM or some other ridiculously great show ;D

Shit's weak but it still makes grown men double over and wince at its odorous odor when unexpectedly encountered in a public restroom. #KnowYourStrengths.
