With the recent passing of my 38th Birthday(and the news that one of my uncle's diabetes has gotten bad enough he might need toes cut off), I've decided to get a little serious about my health again.
In a major step for me, I got rid of the jar of bacon grease I keep in the fridge, and I started bringing stuff to work so I could work out during lunch. We don't have a huge workout area for our team, but there are two stationary bikes(one of them recumbent) and an elliptical machine. With those few choices, it's kind of up to random chance which machine I get to use on a given day.
The two times I have used the recumbent bike, I have been left hurting, by something goofy going on in my left hip. I'm fairly fine on the bike, but once I'm done...doing any kind of pivoting on my left leg leads to some pain and weakness...almost like my hip wants to 'pop' out of socket. It's distracting, to say the least.
So obviously, the bacon grease has been acting as some kind of lubricant for my hip joints all these years, and I need to cook about 3 pounds of bacon up this weekend to jumpstart my collection again...
Oh, my wife had some other ideas, but I think I might try mine first.
