Year Two – Week One

I am barely into the second year of my new life of health and fitness, but I am feeling it and it is feeling pretty good! 😁

It is five weeks since I broke my arm (humurus surgical neck and head). That has put my Zumba, dog walking, and weight lifting on hold – but I have improvised.

My fitness plan these days is mostly dancing around our kitchen and doing my therapy exercises.Β  That doesn’t sound too impressive, but I do both three or four times a day,Β  so it keeps me active and I can feel the benefits….

  • My range of motion for my arm is improving daily.  I did my hair up yesterday.   It wasn’t perfect, but I did it myself with my own two arms. πŸ˜‰
  • I seldom use anything for pain – day or night. I used regular Bayer aspirin for the first week or two but only used it one night last week.
  • I feel good – physically, mentally, and emotionally. 😁😁😁
  • I went shopping on Saturday, bought myself a new outfit, AND I was pretty happy with the fit. (I don’t have a photo but will post one on Thursday after my follow up appointment.)
  • I am sleeping okay most nights.Β  Last night,Β  I slept so well that my arm was stiff and sore when I got up.Β  My workout this morning shook it loose. πŸ€—

That’s it for today but I have to wrap things up with the latest addition to my You Tube dance mix. πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ

From my friend Jackie – going out to anyone looking for that motivation to get you through whatever you are going through.

Take care and have a great day! πŸ’žπŸŒž

  1. Thanks Karla! I make the bed every day and that’s no big deal. Yesterday I did all the laundry and bedding and Dan made the bed. I gave up after I spent ten minutes trying to get a pillow case on. 🀦
