How to do it recouperating?

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

emoticon GD4 says I have to do the plan even while recuperating from my leg injury. Dr. says 8 to 10 more weeks to go with the strain and sprain.

Any ideas for exercise while laid up? I can walk some....

Any ideas for diet while recouperating and not up and a emoticon bout fixing meals.?

    With your knowledge and computer skills I would be presumptuous to suggest any course of action. As for the exercise did the Physical Therapist say anything?

    Do you have a crock pot? that will help with making meals all in one pot and then letting the crock pot cook it for you and you can make all kinds of meals with it too. The internet is full of things like that.

    Hi, just happened to notice your blog. I don't know if you know this already, but there's a Chair Exercise team here on Spark. They have links to lots of chair exercise videos on YouTube. Also, I have one that I purchased from Amazon for $10 that I just love, Chair Aerobics for Everyone with Nikki Glazer. I just love this dvd. It gives you a serious core and upper body workout, plus leg and thigh lifts but you could skip those if you needed to. I use it when my knees are bothering me. Good luck in your recovery!

    Ellen, I have been thinking about you since your last blog. I would stick to a low calorie diet, with lots of veggies and some fruits. I would almost totally eliminate added sugar and breads. Also, some lean protein is a must for healing. Even adding protein powder to things would be a great idea. As for exercise, walk as much as you are able and work on upper body exercises. I hope you heal quickly. emoticon emoticon

    Any chance you can get Meals on Wheels? Contact your local Senior Center or the Social Worker associated with your clinic or hospital.

You what????

Monday, June 30, 2014

emoticon Happyily on vacation for July 4th week. Some family visiting. I was starting to get house in shape. I stepped on the porch and leg went through a rotten board about 3 imches wide or less. All my flesh moved upward and I dangled there unable to move. emoticon Grandson came and sawed me out. Dr. says no broken bones show up. BUT the knee and top of leg were as big as a cantalope. It is a bad sprain. I did not know you could sprain the top of your tibia area. emoticon

So I am supposed to be cleaning cookinng and taking care of DJ. NoW i CAN'T WALK THE DOGS, emoticon DRIVE emoticon , ETC. Oldest GD has been taking care of both of us, the dogs and her 3 year old. emoticon GD is an angel emoticon
