Trying to Stay Positive... I will do This!!!!!!
Thursday, October 06, 2011
I went and seen my Primary Care Physician today. I injured my knee on Sept 10, 2011. I have been sitting at home not able to do anything other than keep my leg elevated for most of the day. Literally about 90% of my day is spent in my recliner with my leg elevated.
Since I hurt my knee I did manage to lose 6 pounds since I was in the Urgent Care Dept on Sept 11, 2011. Not sure how I did it, but I will take it.
I also did my regular blood work this week. My A1C is way too high so the Dr added another medication for that. For everything I have been through this past year I knew it was not going to be good. So I agreed to take the extra meds. I also am limited to what I can do with my left hand. I have a Trigger Thumb that is acting up really bad. So I have an injured right knee and an injured left hand. But I shall not give up. I purchased an Upper/Lower Body Cycle. It pretty much is just the pedals of a bike that you can use with your hands or feet. I am going to use this for Cardio until I can get back to my usual workouts. I will do what I can do with hand weights and do leg lifts in my bed with my left leg, not using the right one.
I am determined not to let these injuries get me down. I watched the Biggest Loser this week and one of the female contestants had a leg injury and managed to lose more than 10 pounds. I figure if she can do it so can I. Not lose 10 pounds in one week, but to exercise with an injury. So starting tomorrow when I get out of bed it is back to the exercise grind for me. One way or another I will do this.
