Five For Friday 1/19/18

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

It’s been a LONG, ROUGH week. I don’t have much energy for this today, so short and sweet it is!

1. Medical Stuff:

  • I saw my shrink on Thursday. NEEDED.
  • I had PT on Tuesday. I love that I have a couple of other friends at PT on Tuesdays when I go. We have our own little club. It’s the cutest.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • I had the stomach “flu” on Monday. On MLK Day which was our day off. It was exactly 24 hours and zero fun.

Five For Friday 11/24/17

Thanksgiving edition!

Medical Stuff:

  • 1 Day of PT. I wrote about it this week after my session: There are days when it’s hard to move. There are days that are just plain painful, when it’s hard to function, and getting out of bed and then to work is a huge victory. There are days where it takes everything I have to get my joints moving and working. Then, there are days I feel STRONG, like I’m a training athlete again. I’m thankful for my body everyday and what it can do, but on those days when I feel like I can kick butt and take names, I try to make sure I soak up every second and express gratitude. With that said, today I’m giving my 7 cardio miles and my strength training a shout out. It felt good, I feel strong, my sore muscles are a blessing and make me feel ALIVE, and I am going to sleep extra grateful tonight.
  • 1 Day of Home Rehab.
  • Many walks with my sister’s dog, Gru. That counts for something, right?
