I am feeling better already. Extra hydration, 100% cranberry juice, and sticking to low glycemic food seems to have done the trick.
However, the Cooper-dog and I slept in this morning and didn’t go on the morning walk with dad and Angel, even though I feel better. Neither the Cooper-dog nor I were motivated to get up and go walk in the cold. The blankets were snuggly warm, and we curled up together so we were extra snuggly! I will go out at midday to walk the dogs. I DID however, spend 30 minutes on the elliptical. My legs are feeling it. Especially my quads. Does anyone else feel like their legs are limp noodles after using the elliptical? I can walk for hours and hours with no noticeable wobbly legs, but even 10 minutes on the elliptical makes me wobble! I know the two forms of exercise use different muscle groups, but... jello! lol.
I have three doctors appointments this week. Two out of town, and one in town. Monday I am seeing a new orthopedic doctor about my shoulder. I was not impressed with the local doctor, who said “suck it up, buttercup!” That I am getting old and things will hurt so get used to it... I am 46years old. I don’t think that is “old”! I don’t think I should settle for limited range of motion (and yes, I did 2-3 months of Physical Therapy), and pain. The new doctor may send me back to physical therapy, or... I don’t know. Hopefully he will be more helpful though! I am cautiously optimistic.
Wherever you are in the world I hope you have a marvelous day!
