    That looks really good Tru!
    Yay to moving the car seat to your car. You will really start to feel more like things are back to normal when you're driving yourself around again.

    drove son into the gym last night for his MMA while waiting I sat on the lat raise machine, without thinking, pumped out a set, then realised that firstly i didn't have clearance yet and secondly it was the full stack 70 kg (154 lb) lol just goes to show why i don't use machines if I can pump a full machine stack for a weak muscle (Lateral Deltoid) and no training for 10 months without thinking.

    Tru- you are a machine, but PLEASE be careful & stay away from the gym until you have clearance. I got what you meant though about the machines :) Not many people could do what you can though.

    it wasn't planned to do anything, was just sitting in an empty gym relaxing before sons training, this is why my GP would not even let me coach during the pregnancy, it is too easy to lift before thinking.

    On the up side: you may have lost muscle mass during pregnancy but there´s still quite a bit left :) I can understand why you miss training though: there´s nothing quite like weight training for feeling your body. At least for me.

    Cool pillow. And you are a beast for pumping out the whole stack! Can't wait til you are training again. Your workouts will be a huge inspiration for me!

    Congratulations on your lovely baby girl. My friend recently had a baby by C-section also, and she found not being able to drive for the 6 weeks afterwards a bit of a drag as well. They told her not to even lift the baby seat, so please be careful with your body and don't do any heavy weights until you need to! Your recovery is the most important thing. You just had an operation.

    it is 2:30 am so as good a time as any to report in lol

    had physio appointment, he was optimistic that the tears in all of my tendons will heal eventually and agreed that the pregnancy hormones made the problem worse causing the tears to grow despite no lifting and lots of rest, those hormones will continue to be a problem for possibly months. Looking at 10 months + for actual healing if it happens. When I get clearance to lift again my exercise selection will be heavily modified to take the elbow out of consideration. Damn having tendons too weak to handle my muscle strength but at least they are still attached to the bone still lol. I hate cardio but will make an effort to do more of it lol.

    bub is finally asleep, so time for me to eat something and get back to bed.

    I hope the cardio will suffice until you're all healed up. Hope you're managing to get enough sleep Tru.

    Life is full of adjustments Tru & I'm sure you will find a way forward. I'm very glad the tendons are still attached! EEK!

    Tendons are weird things. They need loading to heal but just the right amount - not too much, not too little - and their turnover rate is slowww. Best of luck with them.

    Thank goodness they are still attached! Still, it's a bummer. Hopefully, you'll find ways to work around it, though. Might just be trial and error for a while.

    Looks like a good start. How did your abdomen feel afterwards?
