Staying at home all day is one of my most dreaded activities. With the ice storm that blew through Ontario last night, we were “trapped” until late in the afternoon. Yes, we are lucky that we did not lose our power. We are very lucky. However cabin fever is no friend and by 3:30 PM, I was going out of my mind. By 4:30 PM, I left the house.
As I did not venture over to the gym (stayed in the neighbourhood when I did leave the house), I worked on some yoga/stretching and my physiotherapy exercises. I’m still having a hard time isolating the correct muscles to use but I think I’ve figured out how to get better. I had my husband place his hand on the back muscles I’m supposed to be using and I put my hand on the ones I’m not supposed to be using. This really helped me focus on the correct muscles. And, now I have a new exercise partner.
Aside from going stir crazy and doing my physio exercises, I also worked on a knitting project. I’m so close to being done and yet so far away. My husband asked if I finished the second sleeve yet and I replied, “Almost!” He said, “Good.” What a guy…And I love him for it.
