I started doing some checking and apparently it can be caused by tight neck muscles. Who knew? It would make sense though because with the extra CF, my traps are rocks on top of my shoulders. I bought some essential oils a while back but hadn't used them. Last night I broke out the Panaway oil which is a mix of wintergreen, helichrysum, clove & peppermint.
I added some of the oil to some fractionated coconut oil (fyi, I don't know what fractionated means, I just know that this type of coconut oil is a liquid as opposed to the solid that I cook with...) in a roller bottle. I rubbed some on my muscles and massaged the best I could. I will do that each night and see if it helps.
Also, I scheduled a 30 minutes neck and shoulder massage tomorrow along with a 90 minute full body next week. I'm also planning to go to yoga tonight. I'm hoping that the combination of all things will make the vertigo go away.
- 40-30-20-10 Kettle bell Swings - I started with 35# and got through 30 but then switched to 25#. 100 is a lot! :)
- 5-10-15-20 Handstand push ups. I tried to kick up in a handstand today which is normally no problem for me, but the vertigo just wouldn't allow it. I did my push ups off the side of the box today.
- 8:00 EMOM (every minute on the minute) 1 high hang snatch + 1 hang snatch + 1 overhead squat. I used a 55# barbell and felt quite strong for this section of the workout.
I still don't think this pic does my hair justice, but since I chopped it off, I wanted you to see.
