When the sun finally came out again last week - I took advantage of it by digging more gardens.
In the past - after digging the gardens I am sore and a bit stiff - but this year - with my loose dangling muscles and flesh - I was in agony....... pure agony that all the hot baths and tylenol couldn't fix. I kept telling myself - this was all good - as I want to tighten up the muscles and flesh........ yeah yeah it was all good
I had made an off the collar - cheeky comment - in an email that W would find some way to massage out the kinks in the ole body........... (no pressure honest !!!! I was just being a bit cheeky)
Anyway W took it to heart - and brought needles ........ needles!!! In his expert - god like opinion the needling would help to loosen up the muscles. (I had my doubts)
Anyway............ after the bondage episode with the poor chicken on Saturday....... W had me stretch on the hard floor on my stomach for a session in needling.
I was worried sick........... everything has felt so different - so extreme - since I lost all the weight and I couldn't help but wonder if the needling would feel extreme and hurtful too.
I am here to report - it didn't feel the least bit extreme or terribly hurtful. Oh there were a few that felt as though they were impaling me to the floor.... but for the most part it was relaxing and soothing. (for my soul - not my muscles unfortunately)
W took some pictures of the after effects. Actually I don't know if he has ever done after shots before.. I have gobs of pictures of my ass doing a good imitation of being a porcupine........ but afterwards?? Not so sure.
I always say the damn needles feel like mosquito bites......... now I have the proof that the marks left do resemble mosquito bites - just without the swelling....................
And being as they feel like mosquito bites ........ they itch something awful!!! W got a less than flattering picture of my scratching like mad - those itchy "mosquito bites"
