This is turning into a crazy week.  I ended up with my first physical therapy session at 7am this morning and the Cleveland Clinic main campus.

I met with Brian and had my evaluation done.  The first physical therapy appointment is always a mix of evaluation and figuring out what exercises need to be done.

Now I have about 5 exercise to do 2-6 times a day.  Most of them I can do while multitasking which is good.  After my therapy appointment, I got scheduled for my follow up appointments at the JCC office.  This will be convenient for the kids and I.  The physical therapist suggested a couple of pool sessions so I can learn exercises to do in the water.  This should be good since I have never had any water therapy.

It was also suggested that I do either the recumbent stationary bike or the Nu Step at this stage.  So, at the JCC, I did 30 minutes on the Nu Step.  This was NOT cardio.  This was a range of motion exercise, very slow pace activity.  There was no sweat involved.  30 minutes was actually too long.  My knee was pretty sore when I was done and I shouldn’t do things that aggravate it.  I’m really supposed to be mostly resting and icing, but it’s hard for me to sit still.

I’m taking a few days off from my food log.  I’m still sticking with no refined sugar (honey/maple syrup ok) and no white flour.  I also haven’t had any artificial sweeteners.  It’s been over 3 weeks.  Besides not eating enough vegetables, my food has been pretty good.  It really is just a matter of time.  Fit Bloggin‘ starts tomorrow in Baltimore and I will be gone until Sunday.  I plan to photograph at least one day of food to share with you when I return.

I’m excited to meet everyone tomorrow and have a great time this weekend.  Extra thanks to Stephen for taking 2 days off work to take care of the kids and make the Fit Bloggin’ trip possible.
