Good morning Monday

Good morning Monday

it’s the beginning of another week. Kind of strange when you don’t work because you’re weeks don’t normally run like a workday week. However every Monday is physical therapy and my daughter is back to school so I still consider it the start of the week.  March is my last month of physical therapy, then it becomes a self-pay. They run a really great program called strive. You pay a monthly fee and you can use the gym and equipment as you did in physical therapy.  The difference is you don’t get the physical therapist. For me that’s the physical therapist for stretching me out, far from the worst thing. I just have to motivate myself to continue to go now that I don’t have to be there. I have to just keep it in my head I have an appointment Mondays and Wednesdays. As much as I don’t like physical therapy I know it makes a difference. Having not done physical therapy since my first attack, relapse, in 1998, I know how important this has become to my overall stamina and gait.

In about 3 months my daughter won’t be getting up for school anymore. That would be a huge change. She’s actually been in school since she was about three because of her cochlear implant’s. She was in a program to help train her ears to hear, at a very young age. I was always awake because I was always working.  Even when I stopped working last January, I still got up every day for her. I’m still waking up at 5:45 AM. She always says you don’t have to but that’s so SHE doesn’t have to. I get up to workout and she has to watch the puppy. If I don’t workout she can sleep later. Now honesty, when I don’t have to be someplace early, it’s no big deal, I don’t have to be up at 5:45. On Mondays and Wednesdays when I have physical therapy, I barely get out of the house getting up at 5:45 in the morning. I don’t end up starting my workout till six. I finish that by 6:30 or so. I read my Course in Miracles Workbook lesson and meditate for 10 minutes. Then it’s 7:00 I write my blog and rush out the door by 8:00.  See not much wiggle room there.

After physical therapy, I’ll be exhausted. I’ll come home get my self on to my couch and make some phone calls depending how my day is. I know I have to call the doctor because my tendinitis is back.  It went from 0 to 60 in a day. Went to sleep Friday maybe started feeling a slight twinge that afternoon before, now I can’t move for the last two days.  Need to call my primary doctor to get the referral first, then the orthopedic.  I actually want to make an appointment with my primary care physician so I can start finding out about what I need to do if I want to get an aid next year. I also want to start life coach researching. Good Morning Monday. Have a great Day.

  1. Physical therapy has to become a habit. I’m still doing my physical therapy that my last therapist gave me a couple years ago. But it’s tough. I allow anything to get in the way so I don’t have to do it. But I know that it’s vital to keeping the strength and flexibility that I have. It’s become a habit, but I’d still rather not do it! 😊😊

  2. Interesting to hear that physio is helping you a lot. I am at the stage now where I know I should be doing my exercises but I am so exhausted on the days that I don’t work, that I don’t have the energy to do them. I am seeing this as a sign that work may have to finally take a back seat, it is having such an impact on other areas of my life. I hope that you recover quickly from your tendonitis x
