Five For Friday 3/30/18

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

1. Medical Stuff:

  • One day of PT. Light walking and bike. Circuit training and OMM.
  • 3 Days of walking the neighborhood with my sisters’s dog, Gru. Floor strengthening and light weights exercises after each walk. A good change up from my usual home rehab.
  • I had a cyst (I’ve had for about five months) removed from the top of my head on Thursday. Always something…Two stitches, some soreness, but my head is flat again ; ) I sure know how to kick off spring break off right! Stitches out on Monday!
  • Insomnia and weird dreams galore. Sigh.

1. Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT with a substitute therapist. He was awesome and brought a different perspective to my management. We worked a lot on proper breathing techniques.
  • 2 Days of Home Rehab. Treadmill. Bike. Scaps. Legs. Biceps.
  • I am sleeping like crap. I hate these sleep strikes, but if I have learned anything, I know they do not last forever.

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.
