Rain Rain Go Away




Grr grey and rainy again. I made national TV but 2 hours of filming turned into a minute long clip. Blink and you missed me! Oh well, an experience though and to be honest thought I might be cut altogether.

Had a rubbish physio session but to be expected as I have a cold with a bad cough and feel rotten. My legs just weren't as strong as normal. What is after all a trivial illness seems to hit harder after stroke. Made up for the session by doing a good stand to transfer. Making a real effort to just use my legs to stand and hold rotator for security only, can feel them get stronger and Ross commented. Had a first this week, as the standing frame whirred I stood myself leaving the seat part hanging limp; that felt so good, very pleased.

Trying to forego snacks and lunchtime desserts, sitting here I must use so little energy. Want to stop the rot before it starts! So hard watching others snack while you sit smug but hungry.

You're doing so good! You get those transfers mastered and it will open up a lot of freedom for you. I admire your willpower to give up the snacks. I wish I could get my husband to understand that he's not burning up calories like he did when he was working. Very hard mindset transition to make, I'm sure.
