I told the therapist how uncomfortable I was the night before last trying sleep with leg straight and she suggested a small pillows under my knee. I decided on a rolled up towel and it was just enough to get comfortable and thank goodness had a... Read more

I did faithfully count all my nutrition yesterday. I actually stayed within my calorie range and am surprised what a lot of food I was able to have. Today I had a green coconut, red bhutanese rice and oatmeal with soy milk on top. Very fi... Read more

I know from past experience that if I want results (weight loss) I have to log or track all my food, no exceptions, even if I cheat. No ifs, ands or buts..... ... Read more

We are having good weather, not too hot, not rainy. It will be perfect for "pedaling" in the deep water in the outdoor pool. I am determined to get stronger and know it will be a slow process. Did sleep better last night. ... Read more

The physical therapist said once a week sessions should be enough. I really have fantastic range of motion but need to work on strenthening of the quad and other muscles around the knees. I probably should be walking more and need to religious... Read more

The heat index is supposed to be about 100 this afternoon. I hope the forecast is wrong. Since I went to bed really early last night it only stands to reason I woke up and had stiffness during the night. I didn't do much exercise yester... Read more

Slept better last night but it would be nice to sleep all the way through for a change. I didn't count, but think I was up about 4 times during the night due to knee stiffness. I am about to do 10 minutes on the recumbent bike before work this... Read more
Another night of discomfort...

I finally had to get out of bed about 5:30 a.m. due to back pain and knee pain. The only exercise I did yesterday is walk around the farmer's market for about 20 minutes and swim for about 30 minutes. Apparently that may have been overdoing it... Read more

I was tired when I got home from work and took a nap in the afternoon. Before I went to bed I did go for a 15 minute walk (stroll). I do not have speed yet but want to be able to get all the way around the block in the next week (it is close t... Read more

Went to therapy yesterday...reminded about baby steps
Wednesday, July 21, 2010      3 comments

I told the therapist I went to the swimming pool 3-4 days in a row and on Sunday was exercising in the pool for 30+ minutes and that night had a bad time with pain. She said I should go every other day until I am stronger and try to gradually i... Read more
On the mend...with "baby steps" in the pool...
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      4 comments

I managed to work just fine and even did my "quotas" in spite of needing my walker to get from the ramp to my office. When I got home I rested about an hour and then hubby and I went to the gym where I only whirlpooled for just 10 minutes. Whe... Read more
