Getting the Ball Rolling
Thursday, November 14, 2019
Yesterday my dad took me in my electric wheelchair to the Christmas tree store where i found a gorgeous square dinner plate wiht a Christmas scene on it...It is either 8 or 9"...and I got some pretty little bowls with a Thanksgiving motif from Walmart. Those will be great for holding squash or mashed potatoes. I have no one to please but myself since DH and I kind of do our own thing in the house. It's an odd setup but it works well enough I guess.
Yesterday at Walmart I bought a medium sized bright yellow playground ball, which will be perfect for some resistance exercises. In 2016 after an ankle fusion surgery I spent 3 months in a rehab/nursing home. There was a PT there with whom i really hit it off. She did all kinds of creative things and taught me how to exercise while protecting my painful joints and damaged spine. I was amazed at how much one of these balls can do. I was weaker than a kitten when I was admitted (and I'm in even worse shape now) and I left STRONG. and it felt great...even through my pain. Sadly the ankle never healed well and now my other ankle is in even worse shape. And I no longer am in a position where I can get PT. It's up to me! And I will do it!
