Five For Friday 11/24/17

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

Thanksgiving edition!

Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I wrote about it this week after my session: There are days when it’s hard to move. There are days that are just plain painful, when it’s hard to function, and getting out of bed and then to work is a huge victory. There are days where it takes everything I have to get my joints moving and working. Then, there are days I feel STRONG, like I’m a training athlete again. I’m thankful for my body everyday and what it can do, but on those days when I feel like I can kick butt and take names, I try to make sure I soak up every second and express gratitude. With that said, today I’m giving my 7 cardio miles and my strength training a shout out. It felt good, I feel strong, my sore muscles are a blessing and make me feel ALIVE, and I am going to sleep extra grateful tonight.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • Many walks with my sister’s dog, Gru. That counts for something, right?

Five For Friday 11/10/17

Man, this was A WEEK. I have not been this happy to see Friday in a long time.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Home Rehab workouts including my first Core De Force workout which I LOVED.
  • NO PT this week. My PT was out of town.
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. The appointments I usually think I don’t have much to discuss are usually the ones that end up being the most cathartic.
  • My joints have pretty much hated me this week. Temperature change?

This was a long week…and I’m still standing…barely…oof.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Had my annual pulmonary appointment and breathing testing. I am all good for another year.
  • 2 Days of PT. My ribs and stomach sucked this week which is the reason for two appointments instead of one. I definitely needed more OMT. Stubborn ribs.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Running with my collar. I did okay despite my ribs.
