I've Been A Busy Bee

Monday, October 02, 2017

My leg is slowly getting stronger. I'm doing Silver Sneakers followed by Chair Yoga, two times per week. At first, I was exhausted and could barely make it home to rest. The combination of the 2 classes (one following the other) has kept me from getting very sore from all of the cardio and weights. That is amazing to me but it works! My physical therapist told me that it would take between 6-8 weeks (2 times per week) for the fatigue to decrease. She also said that around the same point in time, I should notice some big changes in body strength. So far, I've only done 2 classes per week for 3 weeks. I am noticing some changes in strength already which is exciting. I need to be patient and not rush things.

Meanwhile, on my non exercise days, I've been working on my to do list. I am now finished with all of the closets, all of the kitchen cabinets and the bathroom cabinets. I have done a zillion bags of shredding and I'm finally finished! I have 2 book shelves to go through and then I need to wash the throw rugs, the curtains and the dog's bed. I want to box up some of the clutter and get it out of the way. It has been a massive undertaking but I've done it! It has taken me about 3 months to purge all of our unused stuff. I am surprised at how liberating the whole process has been!

    Awesome job on the classes you've been taking and what a good feeling it must be to have things organized and in order. That is definitely something I should work on. maybe this winter will be the time.

    SO glad to read this one! It was so hard on you during the whole ordeal

    You give me the best inspiration and reminder that I WILL get to the end eventually but it doesn't seem to me I will ever be out of this. I have never broken anything before so it's all new. I have such pain and I never knew broken bones could hurt SO BAD emoticon emoticon emoticon and love you and that you are doing so well!

    Just saw Marsha's post and I am now exhausted and thought it was just me and age 69 in July...I learn so much from blogs and this one is perfect
