Started my new job at lowes this week being a service rep vendor in millwork and my body certainly feels a hell of a lot better after the first day. normally after the first day i've put around 6,000 to 8,000 pounds of material above my head with my damaged shoulders, this week i've put up less than 1000 so far. i'll probably have around 1,500 to move today but that shouldn't be bad at all. i'm really hoping this makes a difference in my chronic tendonitis and joint health (wrists shoulders elbows and such). fingers are crossed there's a nice turn around coming.

went hypoglycemic early this morning in class on top of a lot of stress and depression issues right now. the weights are always there for me though, good day or bad they never lie or mislead. they simply are what they are, a rare pure constant in the universe ruled by chaos (ironic statement there)

805x1 came back and got it and had to leave.
only explaination i have for being that weak is plowing up "tater" rows with my gpa and uncle the day before. never been put on an old timey plow getting pulled before. core was toasted.
