Graduated from PT - now what?

Monday, July 08, 2013

Maybe "discharged from PT" is more accurate, I am now on independent home exercise, which I am not doing (yet). I got tired of the appointments, but it was valuable and I will get back to it. I am just taking a break. I can now walk about 20 minutes. Progress! Soon I will be able to walk to work, or home from work. I am looking forward to that.

I had a bad bout of vertigo yesterday that lasted an hour and a half! Yuck! Plus I am fighting against very tight muscles in my neck, which are causing pain. Today I am starting to feel better. Tylenol helps but I can't take it round the clock, it would be over the maximum daily dose. This morning I was awakened by pain at 1 a.m. but I hope tonight will be better. It's a good lesson to take care of myself better, stretch, do things to keep flexible. Have to attend to whole body, it's been all about my knees/legs for the last 6 weeks or so. Yoga?

I started (today) a challenge that is run by our employee wellness office. It is called 5210 and is all about increasing exercise and fruits/vegs, and decreasing recreational screen time and sugar-sweetened drinks. I did not do really well today - but there is room for improvement. I am going to see Zonya Foco on the 18th!!!! Yay!!!

Helping out in the fruits/vegs department is our garden, which so far is quality not quantity, but it is fun. We have harvested a few blueberries, strawberries, snap peas, and radishes so far. Tomatoes, cucumbers, beets, radishes and lettuce are still growing. Gotta love summer. Stay cool everyone.

    Cool beans! You're going to see Zonya! I should go see her too - I keep thinking about it, but procrastinate about DOING anything about it. I assume you must work for the university too!
