Finally got this bone growth stimulator today. I am supposed to wear it as close to 10 hours per day as I can.
So, to bed, if I can keep it from coming off, I am pretty much a left side sleep and its my left food, which means my foot and the unit will be right against the bed.
Will try it tonight and see what happens, it velcros on and I can wear a sock over it or an ace bandage.
I have only had it on for about 15 minutes now, I cant feel anything, she told me I might feel some heat once the blood flow begins to return to the area.
But there is no kind of vibration or tingling such as with a tens unit.
Now here is my problem, I cant walk with it, so I have to turn it off and take if off when I need to get up, which I already can see I will soon.
To turn off the fan, cause its getting cold in here now and shut the front door and turn on the kitchen light.
This is going to take some getting used to and planning to be able to sit for long periods of time with this thing on my foot.
I intended to get some grocery shopping done today, but upon walking into walmart and seeing that they were so very crowded and as usual maybe 4 registered open and people lined up as far as the eye could see, I turned tail and ran and came home with a Sub and yogurt, will try to get to my grocery shopping before the weekend is over.
And so now I am gonna put on my pajamas and watch some tv and relax the rest of the night and finish my housework tomorrow.
Will keep updates coming on the progress of my foot.

So, I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks to all those who posted on my last blog. "ADVICE FROM REAL WORKER OUTERS NEEDED"...If you havent read it, please feel free and leave me any advice or opinion you want.
Everyone really gave me positive feedback.
I am going to continue to lift weights and not little girly girl weights either.
Of course, I am not going to be dead lifting 200 pounds anytime soon, or probably ever.
But, I feel better about doing 10 lb dumbbells, since the 5 lbs just wasnt giving me the resistance i felt I needed anymore.
But exercise is exercise and what little bit I did today was no match for my appetite.
Seems I went wayyyyy over my calories, I dont really know why.
But, I did go to the walking track, only for 20 minutes, but little by little I am getting back to walking and my foot hasnt been bothering me too much.
I did feel a slight bit of discomfort about 15 minutes into my walk.
I am really looking forward to this foot being healed and my walks increasing to an hour and maybe more.
So, I had an ok day today...had Subway with my friend Amy and a great tan session, I loved sweating it out in the tanning bed.
Hope tomorrow is equally as good.
Thanks again for the comments on the last blog.

I got a little ticked off at a FB friend today after posting that I had done my squats using 10lb dumbbell in each hand...now, I am trying to include arm and upper arm workouts as well as some cardio and some strength training.
She suggested that for a woman I should only be using 3 to 5 lb weights, unless I want to bulk up big enough to move a refridgerator..
THIS PISSED ME OFF!!!
For one, maybe I do...and for two, this woman is all of five foot tall and maybe 120 lbs at best...
She might be right, I might be adding too much weight, Personally I dont think I am.
I need to increase muscle, calorie burn, whatever, I just need to get some exercise and do it in my own way.
If she had to comment, why not just say, thats good or way to go or whoopee or something...why try to correct someone and make me adhere to her style of workout????
What do you all think SP friends...?
Am I adding too much weight???
Should I stick to small dumbbells and not add more weight????
Believe me, I would have to work out at a much higher rate and much more intense to ever bulk up as she said...
I have a long long way to go to even have definetion in my muscles...
I guess I am just really ticked off cause I have all these other issues going on and for me to workout at all was fantastic, I was feeling so high and endorphins running wild and then kabam
someone stomped all over it and made me feel stupid like I am too dumb to know how hard and how far to push myself.
Other than this, I have had a good day.
I got up early, enjoyed my coffee while listening to the rain and trying to work on these tough decisons...
I took a good shower and the Vaseline cocoa radiant body spray moisturizer makes me smell so good and feel so silky soft.
Nah, I am along way from bulking up.
Thanks for reading my rant.
