GUESS WHAT THE EFF HAPPENED YESTERDAY!?
That’s right! I was cleared to stop wearing my
stupid splint and start using my hand! I almost hit the ground and started doing pushups right there in the Doctor’s office. I feel whole again. I can now add fist pushups, pulluups, deadlifts, OH presses, and KB swings back into my WODs! I can do anything as long as it doesn’t involve my wrist bending. I was also strongly encouraged to follow my pain cues and not push through it, no matter how bad I want to. The bones in the hand and wrist are TINY and susceptible to osteonecrosis, which is a big ugly word that simply means bone death. If I impede blood flow to this area further (since there’s already limited blood flow thanks to swelling) I could land myself with a permanent injury. No thanks.
I decided to celebrate by going to the mall for some bathing suit shopping. You know, since bathing suit season is here.
Did you know it’s REAL HARD to find bathing suits in February? It is. What if I were going on a vacation?! I’ll tell you what if, I’d have to spend way more money than I’d like to at a specialty shop. Did you also know that if you’re bathing suit shopping in Victoria’s Secret you run the risk of being hit on by some creeper walking around VS by himself? Yeah. Me neither. I don’t care how cute their bathing suits were, I couldn’t spend another second in there. PS- if your version of picking up women includes telling her the clothes she’s looking at “Look as if a rainbow threw up everywhere”, you might want to reconsider your strategy. #justsayin
There might be a shortage of bathing suits, but there is not shortage of .. dun dun dun..
There’s a new, amazing, Crumbs Bakeshop in the mall. I could not control my feet from walking me right in there. Somehow, I made it out unscathed, with only a large black coffee.
I had to keep telling myself it was the most delicious coffee I had ever had. Pysch.
When I finally did come across some bathing suits, they all had one thing in common. PADDING and UNDERWIRE. Every. Single. One. Cool, I guess? Sounds so comfortable I can’t even handle it. They did look cute, though. My only requirement was that they had straps to keep the bathing suit on while I plunge into the ocean in 2 weeks. I found one that I deemed a winner.
I had to buy a top without a bottom, because apparently stores get them as separate shipments. I have to go back next week to pick up the bottoms and trust that I will like them. First world problems.
