Five For Friday 10/25/19 & 11/1/19

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

I just can’t keep up every week! I guess that goes with the Mom life now ; )

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Two PT sessions. Cardio, strengthening (increasing weight and resistance), electrical stim, and Manipulative medicine. The magic combo.
  • Four Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill (trying to increase distance/decrease time each run/walk. It’s getting harder but competing with myself makes the DREADMILL more tolerable).
  • My friend got skin cancer a few years ago. Ever since, I make sure I get a skin mapping every year. Came out clear again, thank God.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One day of PT. Trying to turn up the intensity during my workouts now that my hip is finally cooperating (most of the time).
  • Two days of home rehab. I’m running more! Woohoo!
  • I’m back with my former primary care doctor and could not be happier. She gets me…all of me. So important. She also has EDS and POTS, so she knows the zebra life well.

1.Medical Stuff:

  • I had my 6 week postpartum appointment on Monday. Everything went well…I cleared for exercise. However, I left out the part that I’ve been exercising the last couple of weeks. Oops…did not know I had to wait for the green light.
  • PT on Tuesday. An hour of exercise, a half hour of manual medicine, and 15 minutes of heat and electrical stim. I’ve missed the stim.
  • One two mile walk with a pitbull. IN SUNSHINE.
  • One Day of Home Rehab…better…still need to add 1-2 more days.
