Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

Five For Friday 10/13/17

Friday the 13th!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. A lot of rib OMM and cranial work after cardio and strengthening.
  • I’ve been doing various Beachbody exercise programs and I like the variety. I am figuring out how to modify as I go. So far, I have done 21 Day Fix Cardio, 21 Day Fix Pilates, and PiYO Sweat.
  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I had a procedure done yesterday where I had to be put under. It went well. I am just SORE today, but will be back in action soon. Meanwhile I am getting in some good sleep and a lot of one-on-one time with my heating pad. HOT.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Infusion on Wednesday.
  • PT on Thursday.
  • 3 Home Workouts. 21 Day Fix, and treadmill and bike.
  • I LOVE Shakeology. I have found something with having gastroparesis that fills me up, gives me so many nutrients, and is gentle on my gut. Let me say it again, louder I LOVE IT.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT! So much cardio…and a lot of scap training and strengthening.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Thursday. Stupid ribs and OA joint (neck). It was very needed.
  • I have officially made it through four weeks of school. I have to say that this week is the best I have felt since school started. Here’s hoping it continues to get easier.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 after school Infusion on Wednesday to get through the rest of the week.
  • 3 HARD home workouts.
  • Brad and I walked two nights this week instead of one. Progress.
  • On some new meds right now that are making me a bit “curvier.” Kinda sucks but we do what we gotta do, right? Hoping it’s temporary.
