Walking has been quite therapeutic even in the rain 🌦.
I have to say a big thank you to my Pilates Instructor, at Lutterworth Pilates and Therapy Centre; Nikki has been superb with her advice, especially when I have been a bit down, she suggested that as the ribs started healing, speed walking and hill repeats would be good.
As I heal more, squats and lunges can be added. Unbelievably, she has also offered to come running with me, as and when I can start again - not likely to be for a good few months, it is something I am very nervous about, so her support is much appreciated.
I have discovered there are a lot of things that are challenging with one arm, “things” have become “things” that I never considered or knew existed....equally amazingly, it is surprising how quickly your body adjusts to deal with “ things”.
Chopping Radishes (of course) 🍎
Squeezing a toothpaste tube AND getting the toothpaste on the tooth brush! 😂
Doing up the laces on my trainers.👟
Filing finger nails! 💅
Opening tins! 🥫
Blow drying my hair - although because of lockdown, I am starting to look like a yeti 😆
Washing hands! ✋Hand gel and wipes are my new best friends!
Doing up zips........
The list is long, and I do find myself tittering to myself, which I know is sad, but it is quite funny.
My OH stands looking at me, we both know he is happy to help, but being the independent, "I can manage on my own sort of person" struggling for 10 minutes is of course preferable to saying, can you do this for me, or can you help me with this.🤦♀️
I have said in a couple of posts, how I’m lucky to know such good people, and to have such supportive friends. I owe a lot of people for keeping me positive and supporting me. A HUGE Thank you xxx
