I appreciate all the motivating comments from the past couple posts. Things are going a bit better for me. You just have to make yourself be better sometimes. And it helps me get out of my funk.
As far as my shoulder goes, I'm still working on my exercises to gain range of motion. Sometimes I can relax and feel as though my range is getting better but sometimes my shoulder is tighter and I feel like it's not improving. The doctor said I was doing great so I'll just go with that. It's been 2 months but I expect it to take at least 6 months. Here's a bad picture of me doing my exercises. Sorry, it's all I got...

It's not easy and sometimes I have a hard time relaxing my shoulder.

My shoulder still gets sore while working out depending on the day and exercise but I figure it's going to be sore until it gets used to it and gets healed more. So I rest it when I need to but continue to get my workouts in.
Other than that...well, it's the Midwest and winter in Chicago. So I'm just cold. So very cold all the time. Work, home, outside, you name it. I walk about 15-20 minutes to work form the train every day. And it's just not fun. Such is life! Is it summer yet?
I weigh in at weight watchers tomorrow for my first official week. I've been doing really well and my pants already fit better. More on my progress with this later. Have a great week all!
