You think exercise is hard? How about not exercising?

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

I am having a problem not exercising. Dr. told me to wear knee immobilizer when I am up and rest this week. I tried some exercises with my good leg this morning before getting out of bed. I feel like a sloth and am reminding myself not to get depressed due to lack of exercise. I really need to at least do some seated exercises today at a minimum. I didn't have time to go to the gym for whirlpool yesterday but I know I will go today NO MATTER WHAT as I know that will feel good. emoticon

    It is probably very difficult for anything after you go to work. Try to get to the water on Sat. and Sun. and dont stress out about it. You cant do it all. I try to eat super healthy on days I am not moving around as much like when it is 100 outside with the heat index

I hurt my shoulder/arm a couple of months ago and have been careful not to use it but I guess I will have to go to the Dr. to see whats up soon. It hurts to sleep on it and to push open a door, etc. I do go to the Y and move around in the warm water pool for about an hour 3x per week but I just retired so I can do that now.

Keep me posted on your recovery. Thinking about you.

    My promise to myself to go to the gym to whirlpool no matter what was not kept due to a storm and super high heat index 106 and just wanting to hide away in my airconditioned house. Tomorrow after work I am seeing the doctor. I don't feel improved more than 10% over last week. Hopefully it will be better than that.

    Try to do some upper body strength training seated with dumbbells. At least you are moving and building some muscle at the same time.

    Great point - just ask a pregnant woman on bed rest, or for that matter, someone who just can't do the things we take for granted, like walk to the mailbox, or up the stairs. Do what you can, but keep doing! emoticon

    I, too, have not been able to exercise as I would like and I hate it, but...I'm trying to build back up slowly and a little is better than nothing at all. Hang in there as it will come and things will get better, have faith. Take good care of yourself while things are coming together.

    Nothing like not being able to do something to make you want to do it! Hang in there and take care of yourself the way you know you should....

    I know what it's like to not be as mobile as I'd like to be. Keep hanging in there and doing what you can. You'll soon feel better.

struggling to go to work today....

Now the left leg is getting sore from lack of exercise due to wearing a knee brace on the right leg. I think this afternoon I will try getting to the gym and whirlpool for awhile.

    I know from experience how hard an injury can be. Keep your spirits up. I wish you the best.

    Plus, your left leg is getting more strain from supporting your right leg more. How about some seated stretches for your leg? And the whirlpool is a great idea.

Dishwasher fixed...

Monday, July 12, 2010

The door latch only needed adjustment. A minumum service call was $100 so it was way cheaper than buying a new dishwasher. Hubby thought we should just go buy another one (I am glad I handle the finances now).

It worked out well and have a full load running right now. emoticon

    Glad it was an easy fix. I had one of those with the dryer last week, although I would have bought a new one and my DH is the one who got the part (2-hour round trip drive) and fixed it.

    Men can be infuriating when something needs to be fixed. It's always either 'I'll fix it right after this ________________(fill in the blank) is over' and then forget, or they do a slap dash fix-it that lasts for ten minutes. Only occasionally has the man said get a new one. At least yours was a simple fix.

    emoticonIf you had ,had American Home shields they would have only charge you 55.00 service call and if they cannot fix it they will replace it,I have all my appliances cover with them.

Tempted to stay home today but resisting the urge....

Monday, July 12, 2010

Since the doctor said I could still work in spite of muscle tear I am going in; however, I have to go in early cause I need to be home when the repairman comes for our dishwasher. Hubby refuses to wash dishes by hand and I can't stand at the sink. We are running out of dishes (it has been 3-4 days since it broke) and kitchen is a disaster area.

Hopefully they can fix the door latch. I looked up expected life spans of dishwashers (they have built in obsolescence) and it was 6 to 12 years. Since we have an upper end machine that we bought 11 years ago it is an iffy proposition to get it fixed but after I looked up the cost of a high end machine I am hoping investing another $150 to $200 in it will be worthwhile. Hope I am right.

    Good luck with getting your machine fixed. I'm glad I don't have to contend with that but then I wash by hand and don't worry about my hands. I grew up washing by hand.

    Hope your muscle is healing. That sounds like it is very painful.

I hope they can fix the dishwasher. Appliances are so expensive. Well everything is getting to be expensive including repairs.

  Good luck with the dishwasher. I but medium-range ones and replace every 6 years or so.

    I think you are correct in trying to repair the dishwasher - I always do that first before I consider trying to replace - SO expensive!!

Sorry about your muscle tear - what a bummer! Way to go on trying to work anyway, I'm afraid I would wimp out and stay home!

btw - I think Hubby should be doing the dishes! Ha!

    It is bothersome when an appliance acts up. You're having health troubles doesn't help at all. I hope all will work out well with you.
