Looking for changes...and finding them
Sunday, July 29, 2012
I am post bilateral knee replacement (and I can not tell you how many different Physical Therapy receptionists, when hearing that the reason I wanted to come in for therapy was "bilateral knee replacement" ask, "which side?") and I can see changes! Beyond the obvious, I mean. I stand longer, I ask Leslie less often to get me things, and I worked out on the gym fitness floor on the treadmill and the stationary bike yesterday, instead of the pool. (Not that there is anything wrong with the pool...it's just fun to have other options.)
Plus, while watching the Olympics, I see the Coldstone Creamery ads and think that the portions seem too big. THAT IS a BIG change. Of course, I am watching the Olympics and wishing I was an athlete. And now, I think: that could be possible. I don't mean just working out. Which I've been doing. I mean something else that I am still trying to figure out, that I have yet to define. It's an urge I have every time the Olympics come around...yet this time it feels like it might be different, attainable, achievable somehow.
