More Intense Therapy
Monday, August 24, 2015      7 comments

While we were away this past weekend, I didn't use weights for my therapy, because I decided not to take them with us. Instead, I slowed down my exercises and did the routine several times per day. When we got back, I resumed using my weights ... Read more
Busy Weekend

Hubby and I took off early Thursday morning and drove to Jacksonville. His brother and family just moved there from further up north. Hubby wanted to help his brother unpack a little bit. I basically sat in an easy chair and read. I was prou... Read more

I met my main therapist this afternoon. We reviewed my current issues, my strength program so far, did an ultrasound treatment and added three isometric exercises to my at home program. We discussed how I can improve my pain management so that... Read more

Sunday, August 16, 2015      5 comments

Today, I did my at home program by myself for the first time. It was difficult but I moved slowly and was able to finish my exercises. I followed my routine by 20 minutes of ice. I am supposed to use ice packs four times per day. I have done t... Read more

Saturday, August 15, 2015      4 comments

The physical therapist who came today, did further testing. He tested my nerve sensations in my feet and the strength in my legs. My lower legs are not held tightly together at the knees because the muscles are weak. This can cause the knees t... Read more

Hubby and I went out for an egg white omelet for breakfast this morning. I was way off my usual eating routine. I had half of the omelet, a few potatoes and some whole wheat toast. I drank most of my unsweet tea and boxed everything up and bro... Read more
Progress Report

I have only weighed myself twice this past week. The most recent time was this morning and I was down a pound. This surprised and pleased me. My checklist method appears to be starting to work. Even though I have had days when I was in so muc... Read more
Making My Journey Just About Me Not The Scale
Tuesday, August 11, 2015      6 comments

I am continuing to use my check off sheet daily. The biggest plus with using the check off sheet is that it is so easy. The creation of the sheet itself at the beginning was just a loose guideline for nutrition and self care. If I want more s... Read more
Starting Some Medical Self Care
Friday, August 07, 2015      10 comments

My check off sheet is working out pretty well so far. I can see what nutrients I have consumed, what I still need to consume, how I am managing stress and any other issues that come up. Since I started using the sheet, I have become aware that... Read more

I Thought I Was In A Bad Spot, But Maybe Not.......
Wednesday, August 05, 2015      7 comments

Two days ago, I would have said that I was in a bad place. Then I changed my focus. I never realized how liberating a few changes could be! I sat down and designed a check off sheet for nutrition and self care. I used it every time I put some... Read more
Taking My Focus Off The Scale
Tuesday, August 04, 2015      12 comments

Since I am unable to workout, I have spent the last few months obsessing over weight gain and the number on the scale. I have always used exercise as both an outlet for stress and as a way to trigger my metabolism. Right now, exercise is barely... Read more
Frequent Flier Miles Earned The Hard Way

I had my appointment with the orthopedist this afternoon. He said that I am his favorite patient. He was shocked at the appearance of my left leg, which kissed the cement when I fell yesterday. It is very colorful in appearance. If I remembe... Read more
I Was Concentrating So Hard On The Way I Walking That...

I didn't see the slant and slight dip in the sidewalk and I fell. It isn't really anybody else's fault, just a clumsy accident. How I avoided a head or face injury, I don't know. My hat flew off my head, my glasses slid down my nose, my left ... Read more
Changing My Taste Along With My Diet
Monday, July 27, 2015      6 comments

If you had asked me ten years ago if I wanted grilled fish, I would have given you an emphatic, NO! I loved seafood but not fish. (Still to this day I can't stand the scent of fish cooking.) Tonight, when I took hubby out for his birthday din... Read more
