Today I am grateful I have a very good Physio. I had not needed to see him until now because all I was doing was healing. I am still healing but I am ready to start preparing for proper exercise again. Because I have a big cut down my belly I need to re engage my abdominal muscles. Because I haven’t used my gluts for over three months I need to wake them up again and because I have not used my left arm for over three months it needs lots and lots of work. I have a manageable list of exercises to do each day. I have a goal of walking 5km. Hopefully these small goals will prepare me for my bigger goals of walking longer distances, running and getting back on my bike. I will also add swimming and gym back in when my arm has healed enough. I am going to be busy!
Today I am grateful that my doctor gave me the ok to drive when my arm was comfortable enough. I drove yesterday and managed which was fantastic. I won’t drive far but it gives me back some independence again.
Today I am grateful that Nick has a job. He has a job that only pays depending on what he sells. It is very tough and very little pay but I am proud of him for doing it ( I think he now has more insight into the benefits of uni).
