excuses

heres my excuse for not doing P90X today and for going and getting a large sub sandwich instead!!No I am not pregnant, and No I don't just have "fat fingers" Heres the story. I didn't really feel like doing P90X today. Finals start Monday (dont worry...its my 5th time going through finals in 15 months) and I was trying to study really hard. I havent been feeling up to par lately with the allergies going on here (Thanks a lot Hurricane Fay..you B#($@). But somehow I talked myself into it. I know I promised to post pictures and all that jazz...so I made myself get up and do it. Well I'm not quite badass enough yet to do more than one pull up (but yet badass enough to do one! still quite an accomplishment) so I simulate them by hanging my resistance tubes over the door and pulling down on them. ANd I know I'm an engineer...but I actually saw someone post that they did this and it worked (so not something I just 'engineered). Well I was trying to put a lot of tension on there to really simulate the pull ups (Hulk Style). Oh wait...rewind...after warm ups I almost shut the DVD off. I was like ughh...really dont feel like this...then said NO..YOURE DOIN IT!...ok back to the Hulk pull ups. I started to pull down and thought "hmm...I think this is a little more resistance than these tubes can hand.........SNAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Ouch!!! Started shaking my hand...looked down...and cried! haha. It didnt really hurt but it scared the crap out of me that it looked like my knuckle was coming out of my finger. I had that little kid reaction...fall down....get up....start bleeding....freak out! haha. I called my husband crying (he was golfing..bc I kicked him out of hte house so I could study)..told him to come home...then changed my mind and said I would be fine.

Next feat....getting my rings off. Of course my husband wasn't extremely concerned with my finger that was now resembling a single hump camel..but more concerned with getting my wedding rings off so we wouldnt have to cut them off. So far I got the big guy off. I greased up my hand with our KY Gelly (JK) (soap)..and just kept pushing until it came off. I sent the picture to my mom on her cell phone (as I often take pics of my nasty injuries and outside in the light she thought they were legs from a double amputee. Funny huh?

Next I needed comfort food....ahhhh...sub sandwich. So doesn't look like I'll be posting pics anytime soon. Also..in the next two weeks I have 5 finals and 8 comprehensive exams covering every subject we've ever learned in anesthesia followed by a vacation to Colorado. So ya..not too promising on the workout front. Also after that I'm moving to my first rotation. I think life will settle down once I have this all behind me...oh and of course when my camel finger turns back into a horse? what???? I think I need to be checked for head injuries

Nice rock, gimp finger.. I tend to be a little accident prone so every time I bang my knee or jam my finger or get a hang nail my first reaction is "holy crap! I can't do P90X!" Then I look at it closer and realize I'm just being a sissy because nothing is swelling or bleeding all over the place.

Good luck on your finals (again). Was that blood or Kool Aid?

So, at first I didn't know I was supposed to be looking at your joint, I was just dazzled by that giant diamond! Holy cats girl, that thing must weigh your hand down!

What a story! I hope it's feeling OK!

"resembling a single hump camel" Priceless.
