What a dizzy month. Pedometer needs new battery. Got that but set incorrectly. Finally can report on end of month…

April 26…5,313 and 1,182 aerobic
April 27…10, 749 (my moment in Claude-land)
For several months I’ve been going to physical therapy. Most useful has been learning how to walk in more balanced way, exercises to keep my bad shoulder in play. For a number of years, I’ve been aware that I drag my right foot and balance is off, so all has helped this. This week I began exercises with my feet. One series involves rolling a 7-inch ball under my arch/toes. The idea is to uncurl toes; immediately I felt much more grounded.
Today another foot exercise, called “Bunion Soother,” which uses the ball plus a small rubber band like one that holds broccoli stalks together in the market. Have to figure out which one is like that used in therapist office–think it’s the red one. This is put around big toes with ball between.
Also given Celebrex prescription by orthopedist last week–reduces pain in arm and shoulder. Whatever it takes outside of surgery.
