Two A Day

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

I am coming off a couple of months of little exercise due to joint issues. I have been doing the elliptical on weekends, but have been in too much pain at the end of the day to do any workout! After a month of this, I finally got into the ortho doctor for an evaluation. The x-ray showed damage from a previous injury, but nothing new. He gave me a new med and physical therapy RX. I decided to go back to doing what I want to do. Today I did the elliptical before work and Curves after. It was the best thing ever! I have so much more energy from the exercise! My ankle is swollen a little, but no pain. I am so sure that if I lose some of this weight I will have less joint pain.

    Yes, It can be hard at times Jazzmine but we have to keep on keeping on! We have similar knee issues although mine is much worse so I understand totally what you're going through. We're going to get there, girl, just wait and see!

    That is awesome! I always push for my exercise no matter how poorly I am feeling because you really do feel better. With ankle issues, have you ever considered deep water jogging? You put a flotation belt on go to the deep end of a pool and get a great workout -you can do jumping jacks and other exercises as well as jogging and have no pain or stress on the joints! And the rewarding hot tub insures no muscle aches -its a win win.
    I hope your new meds work and I have always appreciated what physios do for me -they have helped me out of some pretty bad spots.
    All the best with it!
