My day usually :)

I try to stretch everyday, all limbs. Most days I do the treadmill for 10mins. .25 mile and 8-10mins. then I do the row step machine where I sit not stand 10 mins. and throughout the day I use my leg cycle for maybe 250-1000 steps each whatever I can handle. Somedays I have energy and other days I don’t. 🙂

I used my right hand to click to add all the pictures! A new for me.

The hand movements have come a long way. I’m happy. A ways to go. Putting my right hand on the treadmill has helped my movement, my grasp especially. Before the stroke I had to hold on, I couldn’t balance on my own. My hand use to not let go and it’s slowly releasing it. My hand doesn’t completely fan out yet, when doing the pushups with my knees up but I like doing them in the last month. Need muscle! Walking the stairs have gotten easier. And doing the laundry is better. It feels good to improve more. Makes the day go faster. Makes me happy.

And doing dishes is getting easier. I’ve been doing them since I was 5 years old, mean stepmom, 🙂 Never thought I would miss it. Makes my cuticles soft. I switched to plastic dishes, lots easier than stoneware. We have a dishwasher for when there is a lot to do. My energy isn’t there yet for lots of work. 🙂


I am a writer and an artist, at least in my mind. :) I love to read!

And yes, you are just a slip of a girl now, aren’t you. You’ve lost so much weight. It’s good to see you working hard to get your strength back. I wish I could have been here for you before this.
