YAY Squats!

So, I have good news. Knee PT has given me even more weight bearing exercises to do! I still have to do all the boring leg lifts at home, but I am doing body weight exercises now. I can also do squats at home if I wish. I had my re-eval done today. My strength is good (5 out of 5), but my endurance sucks and I need to be able to rock the stairs (which I can’t now). They’re putting in the request for more PT so that can happen.

The PT doc and the student said I needed to work my quads, so I asked them if doing horse stances would be OK. They weren’t familiar with them so I demonstrated and they said YES! Now, I can practice that so I can get it ready for my triumphant return to karate.

I am a 29 year old working in a job I love. I have a host of physical ailments from injuries- seriously, I'm like an old woman. I am trying to find happiness by changing what I do in life. Mostly that entails eating better and moving more. I also love learning for the sake of learning. The quote below is from Lord of the Rings and sums up how I feel. "What more do you want to know?" "The names of all the stars, and of all living things, and the whole history of Middle-Earth, and Over-heaven, and of the Sundering Seas. Of course! What else?" -The Two Towers
