I went to the Dr this morning. Got on the scale 278.6 or was it .4? Either way, who cares?! I weigh under 280! I was VERY happy. Then Dr comes in and reads therapist's note and says so-and-so gave you an A+. He NEVER gives anyone an A for therapy. Ever. You really must have worked hard.
I can bend to 120 when I'm warmed up, I can straighten to 0, AND I LOST 5 POUNDS! Yes, I have been working hard. Okay, not as hard as I COULD have on my food, but pretty dang hard on the rehab! And I lost FIVE pounds! In two weeks!
And I can start driving as much as I feel able. And I can work in the pool and on limited machines-within reason. (Yeah, that's going to be a problem.) So, after my appointment today, I went to the Y and worked in the pool...for an hour and a half. That's within reason, right? Um, maybe not. Now that I'm home and resting, my knees are protesting. I'm trying to ignore them. I think they are probably going to win though. Tylenol at the least. And most likely a nap as well.
And Monday I plan to start back to my 3 day a week class schedule. Two of the other people were there today, but no one else showed up. We just mostly walked laps for about a half hour. The rest of the time I was working alone.
Now, as long as the weather cooperates, I'm all set.
And I am planning to make myself a pastry this weekend for breakfasts. I will track it, and it will be fine. I'm going to be burning calories, so I need to put enough in anyway. As long as I keep my portions within reason, its good. I want to work the recipe out before bake sales for school, no one else makes kringles, so I am pretty sure they will sell well. I just need to make sure I can make them well first.
And I did have a protein bar before I went to the pool and lunch when I got home. So I am starting to get back on track.
