Achilles repair – Day 17

Back in the hospital to check how everything has gone.  17 days after the injury and 10 days after surgery.

My first adventure through town in the rain and then on the bus and all was good.  The consultant had a very quick look at how things were and tried to bend my ankle a bit.  It was having none of it!  I’m not sure if it was because the foot has been kept totally immobile all this time, or because of the stitches or because it was still really bloody swollen, but it didn’t want to move!

Pullup progressions – how to do your first pullup

Pullup progressions – how to do your first pullup

Who doesn’t want to be able to do a pullup?  They are awesome!  I class the pullup as a Keystone ability…If you can do them, it’s an indicator that you can’t be in that bad a shape!  But they are tough.  You need a good amount of strength.  And not just in your arms, where a lot of people think.  In fact, if you are thinking of the pullup as an arm move, you have already started off on the wrong foot.  Think of it as an upper half of the body move.

Calendar

Do you have next week planned yet?

To make the most of our health and fitness, it’s best to plan ahead.  That way, we are less likely to get caught out by the unexpected.  We have a better idea of what exercise we can or can’t do and if we will have trouble sticking to our healthy eating habits.

So this is here to help you plan ahead…

Healthy eating and nutrition

What is a food diary?

Easy things first.  A food diary is simply a log of what we eat and drink throughout the day.  If we eat or drink it, we make a note of it for future reference.

Stroke rehab

This morning I was honored to be asked to do a demonstration of the Stroke Rehab Classes I take on Friday afternoons.  It was for the Silsden Stroke Support Group (3rd Tuesday of each month, contact me for details) and we did our regular warm up and a few of the simple exercises to show the group.
