I’m finally getting started with @PHD, so I wanted to start a log to show my progress. Hopefully my log can show the type of coach he is, and also give a little encouragement to those who may be dealing with any injuries or health issues. I have been wanting to work with him since last September but I have been dealing with several injuries since then.
It started with ulnar nerve entrapment in September that put me out of commission for almost 2 months, and then limited my workouts until Thanksgiving. Right about the time it healed I slipped on a grate while it was raining. I had several trips to take over the holidays, and this month I took my kids on a field trip that involved a lot of walking, so my podiatrist made me a custom boot. While favoring the ankle I started walking on the ball of my foot, and I developed a neuroma which is the most uncomfortable injury I have ever experienced. Along with the injuries I have hypothyroidism to deal with, so my diet needs to be on point! With being hypo, off my feet, and out of town for almost 2 months I have gained over 20 pounds.
When I first wanted to start working with PHD in September my goal was to get on stage for the first time. Now my goals have completely changed. My goal now is to get healthy, and it get into the best shape of my life with that being a continual process. Since I cannot put any weight on my foot right now he made custom plan for me, so I can get back to lifting again.
I look forward to this journey and getting back in the gym tomorrow. I will update every couple weeks, and I always appreciate feedback. As embarrassing as this picture is I wanted to show where I am at today, so everyone can see the progress. I know with PHD’s help, my dedication, and the accountability of keeping this log updated I will get back to where I was before my injury and more.
