Saturday night thoughts, March 21st, 2020

Saturday, March 21, 2020

Well, I learned tonight that I've pushed my body to the max the past couple of weeks. I'm barely walking and I got this bright idea to do some of a Leslie Sansone walking video routine. Five minutes in my body screamed to stop or collapse in a heap. So I stopped and sat down. This has been a tough year mentally, physically and emotionally. I've been dealing with all sorts of injuries since last June's auto accident that sprang my right shoulder and gave me whiplash. While I was resting my right shoulder I injuried my left because it was doing all the work. I was warned considering my age and prior injuries it could take up to 12 months to fully heal. These aren't the first injuries to my shoulders, collarbone or chest and ribs by any means. Repeated falls, two auto accidents in 2019. Add in my.usual winter foot problems of cracking and such. Then add in the small pea sized knot that appeared to challenge me earlier this year. That resolved and my feet are okay. My knees, ankles and legs are horrible right now. I had to be on my hands and knees giving cpr to my brother when he passed away March 12th. Most of the swelling has gone down. The pain and limits on movement haven't. Last night I did a modified Leslie Sansone walking video routine for 10 minutes. Well, I thought another 10 minutes tonight would be okay. Wrong! I hate when I body says nope, no more. It's frustrating. I know now, that this week has pushed my injuries even further. All the steps I've been doing while on phone calls on eternal hold hasn't allowed my body to repair itself and let's face it, I'm getting older. My body has taken a number of serious falls the last three years. Add in auto accidents which has added more injuries and it's not a good thing. I'm going to continue to walk and that is it. Too many injuries plaguing me. If the weather is nice, I'll see if I'm able to take short walks outside. Take care of myself for a change. I feel like I aged 30 years on the last 6 months. Hope I can find good food at the grocery and not just the soup and sandwich variety. Maybe find toilet paper too. Pray things don't get worse.

    I've been wondering about you! One of the things I'm trying right now is "exercise snacking." Just like little bits of snacks here and there add up to calories, little exercis-ish things add up to burn calories. They say just a few minutes here and there will make a difference. I hope they are right!

    Listen to your body. It will tell you when you need to slow down, or it WILL slow you down.

    Ramona, glad your going to try just walking when your body will allow it, your body needs to heal so walking should work to keep some exercise going while letting your body heal. All the stress you have had also didn't help with your body. Slowing down the exercise will be good for getting to heal again all the injuries. I think of you often, and hope you get to feeling better soon.

    It's time to rest. Exercise is important, I agree, but your body is screaming at you. Rest...sleep if you are able. Be kind to yourself. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Your brother died a week ago? So sorry to hear about your loss. Sounds like you could use a friend to talk to as well as a physical therapist for your injuries. Be well. Happy thoughts for you.
