I had my last physical therapy appointment last Thursday in the late afternoon. A short time before my appointment I went to sit down in my living room chair and suddenly felt a very sharp pain in my left knee. Oh no, I thought. It happened again. So I went to PT in bad physical condition. In addition to my knee pain, my thigh was sore from power-walking the other day and my buttocks were sore from doing a lot of squats on the Power X-Train Biggest Loser DVD, so I was…Continue

Good morning, everyone.
I weighed in and measured myself today. For the last four weeks, I lost 3 pounds and 4 inches. Considering all the work I did during that time, I am not happy with the weight I lost. I decreased my calorie intake from 2,200+ calories a day to 1,900 (daily average). I burned 2,600 calories a day (on average), so my deficit was 700 calories a day. That would mean that I should have lost 1 1/2 pounds a week – a total of 6 pounds. I am very accurate and honest with…Continue

I just wanted to check in, because it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been going to physical therapy one day a week, every week. My last appointment (yesterday) showed great progress. I’ve been practicing lunges and squats, using the bosu ball, trampoline, and balance boards, and my physical therapist said I looked really good, that my form was good and it looked like I did the exercises with ease. That was great to hear! I’ve noticed that I’m better at…Continue

I’ve made great progress with physical therapy and I’ve only been doing it for a couple of weeks. I have less knee pain in general, I’m able to crouch down to the floor, I can sit cross-legged without much discomfort, I can kneel on the floor and sit back on my feet without much tightness in my knees, and I can tell my legs are getting stronger from observing my ability level with the PT exercises. It feels great to be more flexible and stronger!
I’ve been taught new exercises and…Continue

I went to my first physical therapy appointment last week. It was a long wait in the waiting room, but when I got to see the physical therapist, she spent 45 minutes with me. She tested my strength, balance, and flexibility. I did pretty well, except for some weakness in one of the exercises. She evaluated me and wrote everything down in my chart. We discussed my past injuries, my fitness level, my recent setback (knee pain from overexerting myself), and my goals. I told her I want to…Continue

I went to the arthritis/joint center on Wednesday. I was 35 minutes early (I was told to arrive a half-hour early in case they need to take x-rays) and I was seen almost right away. In fact, the whole process moved so quickly that I didn’t have time to fill out all the paperwork they gave me. They took x-rays and I was directed into the exam room by the medical assistant. I briefly explained my situation and he said that my pain could be from “overworking syndrome,” which basically means…Continue

I’ve studied a lot of psychology. Mostly to help me figure out why I seem to be so different from other folks.
I’m a writer and I’ve been very crazy at various points in my life but, usually, I’m rather sane; it’s just that I’m so damned different.
Might be that I’m an introvert but that proclivity doesn’t account for all of it.
Actually, since I’ve been writing seriously (about 22 years now), I’m even more different than I used to be but I’m also more sane than I’ve…Continue
It made me really think about something I've never given much thought. Enjoy! Christina
