1. Medical Stuff:

  • Acupuncture on Monday. Laying on my back that long was uncomfortable. Was one of the only sessions I did not fall asleep.
  • Physical Therapy was Tuesday. I had more energy this week than I have had the last few weeks, which translated in getting a great cardio session in. It is amazing the difference in energy I have, depending if I do PT on Tuesdays vs Thursdays. By Thursday, I am running on fumes.
  • Was at the hospital most of the day Friday for a family member’s surgery. Luckily, all went well, and we will know more results by Wednesday. Prayers up!
  • Walks, walks, and more walks with my sister’s dog. It’s forcing me to get out there and move, I guess : )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Tuesday PT. It’s getting harder. One foot in front of the other. Had 20 mins of wonderful heat and stim on my neck.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. 3 miles and light strengthening. Hoping I can do this until January…
  • One more Lovenox shot and I am done for the rest of this pregnancy. I always freak out when I go off a med that the baby has been used to since the beginning. Praying.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I had ZERO appointments this week. NONE. Not gonna lie, it was glorious…not getting used to it, but I cannot remember the last time that happened.
  • 2 days of half assed Home Rehab. Must. Do. Better. Gotta dig deep these days to find my energy.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. Pretty typical session. Cardio. Strengthening. Circuits. My PT worked my ribs back into place. I ended with heat and stim.
  • 2 Days of Home rehab. Still no treadmill for those following along…they dropped it AGAIN. So, back outside hitting the pavement, a couple of 21 Day Fix workouts, and light weights, and full body strengthening.
  • Every time I get new glasses with a small change in my prescription they make me feel nauseous and carsick. Well, this happened again on Wednesday when I picked up my new reading glasses. I am going to try and wear them in small doses this weekend but my gut says I will most likely be back at their office next week : (
