Graduated from PT - now what?
Monday, July 08, 2013
Maybe "discharged from PT" is more accurate, I am now on independent home exercise, which I am not doing (yet). I got tired of the appointments, but it was valuable and I will get back to it. I am just taking a break. I can now walk about 20 minutes. Progress! Soon I will be able to walk to work, or home from work. I am looking forward to that.
I had a bad bout of vertigo yesterday that lasted an hour and a half! Yuck! Plus I am fighting against very tight muscles in my neck, which are causing pain. Today I am starting to feel better. Tylenol helps but I can't take it round the clock, it would be over the maximum daily dose. This morning I was awakened by pain at 1 a.m. but I hope tonight will be better. It's a good lesson to take care of myself better, stretch, do things to keep flexible. Have to attend to whole body, it's been all about my knees/legs for the last 6 weeks or so. Yoga?
I started (today) a challenge that is run by our employee wellness office. It is called 5210 and is all about increasing exercise and fruits/vegs, and decreasing recreational screen time and sugar-sweetened drinks. I did not do really well today - but there is room for improvement. I am going to see Zonya Foco on the 18th!!!! Yay!!!
Helping out in the fruits/vegs department is our garden, which so far is quality not quantity, but it is fun. We have harvested a few blueberries, strawberries, snap peas, and radishes so far. Tomatoes, cucumbers, beets, radishes and lettuce are still growing. Gotta love summer. Stay cool everyone.
