Running, Puppy, PT, Practice, Rain-Rain-Rain
Friday, August 16, 2019
Got in my 1.5 mile run last eve, so with my 6.5 mile run scheduled with the Galloway group tomorrow morning starting at (yawn) 5:30am, and the 2 miles I ran with Martin, I'll have my 10 miles in this week. I have my alarms set, shoe lights charged and clothes laid out.
Casey is doing just fine. WATERMELLEN told me about puppy kisses and now when he wants to nibble I just make kissy sounds and smack my lips and almost always he'll change to licking me! He is doing just fine with housebreaking as long as we take him out every 2 hours and don't rush him. He sleeps in a kennel at night now. I contacted Dog Sense Obedience school and found that he is welcome as soon as he gets all his shots, at about 4 months. He goes to vet next Wednesday.
I finished the formal PT sessions Monday, but have been told to continue the exercises. Seems to me it is just gradually, gradually getting better. I've been told there is some arthritis and not to expect complete healing, but I'm not so sure. I have arthritis in hips that I never feel. I don't think arthritis is the issue. I no longer have shoulder pain waking me up and that is a great relief. My biggest problem is dressing. Even bras that close in the front hurt to zip. And I'm really slow dressing because I use right hand/arm only to pull up my pants! I am expecting more improvement, but we'll see.
No binges, no terrible choices recently, but just haven't been as conscientious as I would like. Some of my clothes are snug which doesn't help my sore arm. Thinking about strategies that would work for me at this point.
Piano: (aka brain workout)
I'm practicing and enjoying. Will never perform at Carnegie Hall, but I feel that it is worth my money and my effort. Today I took puppy in and set him on a rug while I was playing. Hubby walked by the closed door of the room and puppy started yelping. I feel certain he wanted to go with hubby, although hubby says it was my piano playing. I shouldn't torture Casey like that! I do think he was kidding. Hope so!!
I am wishing us some dry weather. Hope it isn't raining, raining, raining where you are. And wishing you a healthy, happy, active day of smart eating and pursuing things that interest you!!
