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.

Holy MOLY, this was a crazy week. But I’m still standing…Barely.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • Not proud of this, but this was one of those weeks where I had so much other stuff going on that I had to cancel PT and miss one day of Home Rehab just to survive/nap/rest instead. Blah.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab. Lots of cardio and scap strengthening.
  • I saw my shrink on Thursday. It is always the days I think I don’t need him, when I realize I need him the most.
  • I am sleeping like crap. Too much going on.

Whew! March just got here, didn’t it?! What the heck.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I worked out HARD. I love that feeling of dripping sweat.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Intervals again on the treadmill and floor strengthening.
  • I had an OMT appointment and got 3 trigger point injections. I’m finding those injections are good for interrupting the pain cycle.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 day of PT. My feet keep going numb on the elliptical (sigh) so I am switching my cardio to a combination of biking and the treadmill. So far it’s much better.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Trying to incorporate more core. I need to get back on the Pilates reformer!
  • 6 month dental cleaning. 35 and still no cavities!
  • Good nap week. YESSSSS.
