As many of you know I have been agruing with workers comp to get to the gym as my surgeon and physio had prescribed.
Well i finally started there the other day <:P <:P and am so happy.<br />I feel like I am doing something to help me heal rather then just waiting for it to happen.
I see the exercise physoiologist once a week at the gym and can go as often as I want to to do my work out so aim for 5-6 days a week.
OK the workout is pretty basic- treadmill, exercises based on core work and stretches but I know these will be increased each week or as needed.
So I'm finally doing the happy dance here!

Thanks to everyone that encouraged me not to give up.

Blessings Sara O:)

  • It's a great feeling to be going to the gym or physiotherapy - you start to feel that finally you are making good progress and personally doing something very real to help the recovery along. I loved going to physio therapy, even if I hurt a bit afterwards - after all it was 'good pain' lol. Mind you, after the first few sessions there was not pain afterwards - just the feeling of positive steps being made.
    Keep positive!
