Injured Shoulder

I never really thought that I could actually injure my shoulder while playing badminton. Yes, I know my smashes are insane killers and would scare almost all of my opponents but I never really saw it as powerful as they did. Not to mention, now that I'm no longer training in my high school varsity, I consider myself very out of shape - that includes my smashes.

It's not as strong as it used to be but it still serves it's purpose.

Unfortunately, I stretched too much and I think I pulled a muscle and compressed a nerve. So, now, I'm taking a vacation from playing and wait until it heals before I resume.

I tried playing with the sore arm. I can't smash so I banked on all the other moves. Unfortunately, the injury has also affected the other moves so I decided to hang the racket up for a while.

It sucks but I think it'll only take a while. I can already move it freely so it won't be long. I'm trying to stage the great return. :)

I am fat. I never was "not fat"/thin/fit. I was fat ever since I was born and I haven't really entered the state of being just right except for that time when I was part of the Judenites' badminton varsity team. I was relatively in good condition then. But after graduating high school and graduating from the team, Istarted losing it once again. From a Large size shirt, I gained 2 shirt sizes, 50 lbs and I've lost my self-confidence. Not to mention, I actually think that I am unhealthy. Back then, I wouldn't really care because I don't feel that I am fat. Now, i can really feel it and it's just plain depressing. It sucks. 

I have to figure out a way to remove all of these and bring myself back. 

All efforts start tomorrow.. I have to do this.
