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.

    Hi There!

    I just happened to stumble across your page as I was looking for local Spark buddies to work out with. I'm very sorry to hear about your knee and hand. Both sound pretty painful. I certainly hope that you heal quickly and get back to feeling like yourself. There is nothing worse than being sick and/or in pain. Please know that I'm sending out good thoughts to you. Good luck on your recovery. Oh, and once you are back on your feet again, if you should just so happen to desire a workout buddy, know that I also live in Berdoo and wouldn't mind meeting up for a nice walk or some other pleasant exercise! Message me anytime if you are interested =)

    Take Care!
