On the Road to Recovery
Hi, healers! I am still working hard to push this RSD/CRPS even further into remission. Today, I did a pyramid pool run that took about 45 minutes to complete. It feels great to be pushing myself physically again, but I have to make sure I rest and elevate immediately after for about an hour as to not aggravate anything. I had a delicious recovery smoothie this morning after my pool run consisting of two bananas, three tablespoons hemp seeds, three cups of spinach, some green juice instead of water, and stevia to taste. It was delicious.
Typically, I wake up early (Early to bed and early to rise for me. That is how I feel best.) and do my first retention coffee enema, get in the pool for a pool run, and then stretch and do whatever rehabilitation excercises are on the schedule for that day. I'm listening to my body but also enjoying the fatigue that comes with true physical exertion.
I had an appointment with my PT this morning to update her on how I am doing outside of her care. When I told her I am pool running now, she replied, “You don’t need me anymore.” YAY! I’m doing well on my own and keeping up with my PT every single day. My back is doing so well (remember, I started PT because of a slipped disk) thanks to core strengthening. I always had great abdominals, but they weren't balanced.
I’m also trying to pick up a few more college courses to teach this fall, so fingers crossed!
We run skills sessions with this fall’s basketball team during the summer, so I will be doing some work for crazysexylife.com today and then heading over to coach my girls.
Let me know if you have any questions or requests. I’ve been focused on my PT and pool running, but I’d love to get back to writing on topics that my readers are interested in.
