Five for Friday 3/29/19 & 4/5/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One PT. Strengthening. Cardio. OMT. Electrical Stim & Heat. We talked about different ways to hold Lucia so my ribs don’t flare up.
  • Two Days of Home Rehab.
  • Prolotherapy! I made it back to Indiana after 15 months, a pregnancy, and a hard labor. So grateful for this treatment that has saved me from many major surgeries so far. We did my hips, pelvic area, shoulder, thoracic and first few ribs. I’ll go back in a couple of months for my neck. In the next few days, I lay low and love up my heating pad.
  • I saw my shrink on Monday. We covered a lot in that hour. And guess what? Healing is not linear.

Five For Friday 3/16/18

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

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 : (

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.
