If you have been keeping up with my recent blog posts you know that my hip is perfect. There is nothing wrong with the implant. With that out of the way, I took a picture of the treadmill that I believe contributed to my leg/back pain. The picture became a for sale flyer that I posted Friday at our family center. The very next morning I got a call from a young lady who wanted to buy what I had to sell.Yesterday afternoon I had the exact amount I had paid for it in my hand. A perfect exchange wouldn't you say?
Sometimes it seems that what I believe is going to help with my healing is actually interfering with the process. At the moment I have a brand new upright exercise bike sitting in its box ready to be assembled. That is not going to happen until I check it out with my physical therapist. I have the receipt and it can go back to Walmart if he says no.
I hope its a yes, but even if it isn't I plan to resume walking in the gym at our family center at least a couple of times a week. When the weather warms up a bit I will move to the park and no doubt take my camera along.
In addition to walking I plan to execute the new exercises I have been given with more enthusiasm because I know it will eventually bring about stronger muscles.
Yesterday I reached the six month point in my hip replacement recovery. It was a date I had been eagerly waiting for since my surgery. I realize I still need to exercise some caution, but as of today I am moving forward with a different attitude.
My goal now is to be the best that I can possibly be. Several years ago I told a friend that I want to live to be a healthy 100. No more of this pain crap for me- Been there, done that and I am through!!
Yesterday I saw a statement that said,"women who have their last child when they are over 33 have a better chance of living to be at least 95 than those who don't". Well I was 41 when I had my daughter! There has to be some good reason I agreed to do it again.
