Hydro Massage

Good afternoon everyone, 

Since Suzie and I are now on Medicare, United Healthcare allowed us to upgrade our current membership at Planet Fitness. We moved up from Basic to Black Card. This opened up the massage tables and tanning booths. Today I used a Hydro Massage Table, and Wow that was worth the price of admission.

This afternoon’s workout was a good one. I’ve been able to keep my weight fairly consistent by working hard in the shop, and watching my food intake. I really do like to work out in the gym too. We have a Planet Fitness less than a mile from our house. We both have memberships, however Suzie isn’t motivated to workout, and thinks if I go by myself, I’m isolating and ignoring family.

 

My Suzie in not a disciplined eater, and never seamed to care about my being Type ll Diabetic, always needing to watch my carbs and sugar. She has always fixed pastas, bake breads, and cookies. Then get aggravated when I wouldn’t eat any of it. When I would remind her that while I love what she has cooked, I just can’t eat that much of it, and I would have a very small plate or bowl. Then she would look at me and say, Is that all you’re going to eat!? Some times I just eat a few meatballs and some sauce, but completely pass on the breads. 
 

Well, guess who was diagnosed as Type ll Diabetic? Ms Suzie. That’s right her new doctor said she needs to get a firm hold on her diet and exercise. We started ordering three meals a week from Home Chef, to meet low carb and sugars. She has also asked to go to the gym every other day. Oh and we are not having pancakes and waffles for breakfast as often either. 
 

I hope she can adjust to this new lifestyle. 
Here’s my workout focus today.

Some info from google)

Charcot- Power
shower got this name from its inventor Jean Charcot, and was originally intended for the treatment of neurological diseases and disorders of the musculoskeletal system, as well as improve the overall vitality, hardening and strengthening the immune system. Later it was noticed that it geives other positive results too: people who are overweight could reduce weight, the skin quality was effectively improved and actually treated from cellulite. Thus it promoted further expansion of the scope of shower procedure.

Thanks to the Charcot shower the blood circulation improves, as well improves the function of internal organs of the body, and generally the overall tone goes up. Power shower is used to strength the body and to boost immunity.

Indications of Charcot shower are for:

  • Treatment and prevention of neurasthenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, neurosis, irritability, depression, and chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Toning the whole body, it has a beneficial effect on the human psyche
  • Prevention of low immunity. (Not in the period of the disease)
  • The auxiliary procedure for rehabilitation after injuries of the musculoskeletal system. (The procedure must be appointed by orthopedist)
  • Treatment of low back pain, arthritis and arthrosis
  • When muscle atrophy due to genetic disease or injury
  • As part of an integrated treatment of obesity

Careful with the torso rotations @Mmindy. If you do those wrong, you can really jack up your spine. For working my abdominals, I prefer crunches, oblique crunches and the Roman chair. Pity you're not closer, my workout groups are a lot of fun.

 

Hugs!

Thank you for the additional info @dandy1harper I know my Suzie will love to see it.

 

@Jackie C.I just completed my follow up with OrthoIndy about my back, and the 4 weeks of physical therapy has paid off. Yoga, has become a big part of my daily routine now, and I don't count it as part of my workout. In the process of treating my back injury, they pointed out the amount of arthritis I have in my lower back pelvis, and hip region. So daily stretching is a must to keep thing where they are. I would love to find a fun workout group, right now it's just Suzie and I and she doesn't want a workout buddy. She want to get into her headphones and zone out on the weights. I'm just happy she's back in the gym.

 

🙏🏻 Namaste, 🙏🏻

Yes, good point. I've been doing Yoga for my back for a long time. I have to but I find it's also good for my posture and balance and for stress.

Good morning Davie,

 

I'm just now getting into it as a result of a back injury late last year.

 

Hugs,

      I have a cami with an internal shelf bra that works fine with some tops.

      You're looking good. I have a couple of sports bras, but have only worn them outside under a tank top. I feel very confident about being in public all the time. I don't like dressing male - feels embarrassing. Kinda flipped the table from a year ago. Anyway, I have to give in to the no-tank sports bra look while the weather is still too warm.

      Since I have started looking for starter bras now, I was trying on my bralettes/sports bras and realized how affirming they were and after seeing other women wearing sportsbras out all summer, I felt it was my time too and paired with my Old Navy black joggers. So I took a aerobic walk at one of our State Parks then stopped in a local fusion place to get dinner after. Only thing is these types of bras squish what little I have going to begin with. It looks like my top is going to take some time just to get something modest. But it boosted my confidence and felt great.

      Hi @Sol, I read The Fountainhead years ago, as well as Atlas Shrugged. As I look back, I have a couple of thoughts. First, saying that I liked them doesn't seem to do both justice. They are extremely thought provoking books and should probably be required reading. Second, the themes she put forth in both works are particularly apt today in view of current events. Both are well woth the reading.

      A farmer back from the market.   My day each week to dress up a bit.   Sorry I’m a bit sideways

      @Sol Thank you for your answer, friend! I wanted to see what others thought of. I remember having a different book of a different author, reading the first couple of pages, then becoming scared and never finishing it. And that was 8 years ago!
    • Sol
      I read the Fountainhead, @JJ Orange! Granted, I was in like seventh grade when I read it, but yeah I liked it! It's an odd piece with Ayn Rand's unique style, but overall pretty good. There are dubious elements around the mid-late chapters so be on the lookout for that. Nothing explicit, but it was definitely enough to make me do more than one double take.

      I'm not to comfy showing a lot of skin because of being fat but sometimes if its really hot out I have to to stay cool. I love short tops, or crop top Ts on other people but not on me so much. Tank tops  and camisole tops just roll up if I pull them down  which is so annoying.

      I've been looking at immigrating to Canada (as the US is a flaming pothole and Canada seems better on several levels. And yes, I know it's not perfect) so I'll see how many gender clinics are in the area I want to move to.  As for dressing and living as my target gender, that's really what I've been trying to do for the past year on my own. Granted, I'm not moving in any big social circles but college is here and I've been looking at getting a job next year so that'll be good practice.

      Hi Helen! I started out where you are, and I can only give glowing recommendations for TransPulse.  Questioning your gender identity is pretty overwhelming and scary, but I can offer a bit of advice that helped me.  You don't have to have it all figured out in a short time period. And it's okay to try out multiple different identities to find one (or more!) that you resonate with. And, as always, there's no shame in asking questions!  So, welcome to TransPulse, and I wish you all the best on your gender journey!

      I try to do something like this at least once a week.  Since I live alone, just being around other people helps.
    • Russ Fenrisson
      @JustsamThat might be helpful. Just 5-15 minutes should suffice so I can find my focus and make it a habit.   Surprisingly, no. I don't have any close friends. I just never seemed to click with anyone in my life outside of my family. We would meet, have something in common, and then just gradually drift apart due to time and circumstance. I haven't told anyone outside my family of my status, and because of this, it's kind of prevented me from making any meaningful friends. I see I might have two or three prospects at a place I visit in real life sometimes, but it's hard to say. I've always sorta been a lone wolf.
