1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I did a number on my lower back, so there was no “physical” part in my physical therapy that day. Thank goodness for a good PT, some good manipulative medicine, electrical stim, and heat. I could sit down again without almost crying.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Core de Force and Treadmill/recumbent bike. Light weights and floor strengthening.
  • No doctors.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • My latest EDS Fun: JAW. FLARE. It keeps dislocating on the left side. I’ve been living on my heating pad. Fun times.
  • 4 Home workouts this week: 21 Day Fix, PIYO Sweat, 10 miles on the Recumbent Bike, Running and a lot of core. I think I may have overdid it a bit. I will be taking it easy this weekend.
  • I had an OMM appointment on Thursday. My doctor kept putting my jaw into place, and it kept popping out. She told me to take it easy to try and get it to calm down. Do you know how hard it is to try not to yawn?!?!

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.

Holy Cow, it’s September. So long, summer. I love you.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. No PT this week.
  • First week back to school. Hence, not a lot of sleep. It was a tired one.
  • I have learned the last few years that it is best to clear my schedule the first few weeks I’m back to school in order to function and adjust…as long as I still get some workouts in on my own.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. Back at it, after nose surgery. And I was dripping sweat. Those are the best workouts. Heat, stim, and OMM too.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. More dripping. It felt good.
  • One WERQ workout in Chicago. I am obsessed. It needs to come to Lansing nowwwww please.
  • I saw my OMM doc on Friday. My ribs were NOT behaving. Now, they are behaving a teeny bit better. I think I overdid my arm workouts this week.
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. I’m running out of adjectives for that man. Extraordinary will do for today.
