Trying to not over-do
Tuesday, October 09, 2012
I should be sleeping, as it's 11 at night. But my legs are not having it. I've been working hard on the rehab for the new left knee and the right one is needing replacing as well and not happy with the amount of work it's having to put in. I'm really trying to find that balance where I work enough to be helpful, but not enough that my muscles are rebelling at night.
Some days I find it, some days I don't. Today I went a little too far. I went and got my Y membership, but I didn't stay to work out because I had already done therapy. The extra walking from the house and the parking lot, on top of the dr appointment and that walking seems to have been just a tad much though.
I want to go work out tomorrow, but I don't know if that's a good or bad idea. My head says keep the momentum going since my weight is down and I'm still feeling good about that, but my muscles are saying "we are going on strike" so I may end up resting tomorrow. We'll see how I feel after I get some sleep.
This would be so much easier if someone could just give me a chart saying do this that and the other for x many minutes on such and such days! But I'm finding that healing is not that easy! Okay, it feels like my meds are kicking in, so I'm off to sleep.
At least I'm making progress!
