Definitely NOT the summer of Kim!
So, was doing pretty well with recovering from moped accident. Made it back to the gym a few times, even. Then I moved Kate back to New Paltz, to college and managed to throw my back out while cleaning/rearranging her apartment!! Had to drive... Read more
I suck at journaling regularly!
Sorry...I mean to write more frequently...just not good at it. Anyway, I'm healing so well from the accident.
Been back to the gym two days in a row this week and feeling stronger! Even managed a complete course on the elliptical, at a ... Read more
Mini set back
So I was doing great...able to work out, for shortened lengths of time than before, but working out, nonetheless. Then I helped my son move out of his 2nd story apartment...going upstairs wasn't too bad, but going down, especially while carryin... Read more
I swam in a lake for 20 minutes yesterday, with almost no pain! Today I'm going to go to the gym and try a gentle workout! I'm so happy to be healing as well as I am! My accident was 2 weeks ago today. I've made tremendous progress! My knee... Read more
...that's how long the doctor thinks it will take for me to make a full recovery. Once the wounds (scabs) have healed, I can start swimming for exercise. And when I can stand it, going easily on the elliptical again. It could have been MUCH w... Read more
It's been a while since I blogged...
...I had a moped accident a week ago. I'm in a knee imobilizer and on pain meds. I go for an ortho appointment tomorrow morning. The meds make me a bit weepy and I'm very impatient to get back up and around. I'm trying to listen to my body a... Read more
Quick blog entry...

Long time without a blog entry
It's been a long while since an update...because there's not a lot going on. My knee is still troublesome, I'm working out when it allows me to. My next appointment (rhumatology) is in a week. Because I've been doing more weight lifting while... Read more

Should NOT have run!
So I blogged that I ran a couple of times on the treadmill, with minimal pain. Well, I got all cocky and decided to run a 5K...on pavement. Not my brightest idea. This was Saturday morning I ran. I'm still paying for it. I will not be runni... Read more
Not fast. Not far. But on Monday, I ran a mile, nonstop, on the elliptical in 13:20. My knee has been bothering me a bit and nothing seemed to make it better...here I was NOT doing all the things I want to do to keep it from hurting and it wa... Read more
No real news here...still plugging along with some knee discomfort. Think I'll switch it up and swim for a while, for exercise, to give the knee a break from the jarring...although far less on the elliptical, there still is some.
Hoping al... Read more
