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.

      "Landfall just north of Cape Coral around 2PM EDT today, 946mb Major Hurricane. Slowly tracks NNE and just south of Deltona middle of the day Thursday 990mb and dumping a swath of over 20" of rain accumulation to this point between roughly Bradenton to Lakeland."   I live in Deltona. We're doing the last of our preparation today.

      By all means do what is working best for you two, but just as a thought and hint, check with your local LGBTQ center and see if they have clothing swap days for Trans people.  I know it says swap, but the one at one of the centers I am part of simply has the clothing for free, some of it is donated new by local sewing shops that produce high end clothing and have production overruns too.  It is wonderful to hear that the two of you are comfortable and happy to do that for now.

      My 15 year old M2F daughter is now just about the same size as me, has outgrown her original wardrobe (she transitioned at 12) and are now sharing outfits. It helps that I have over 30 outfits in my in my closet and now it has become a shared closet for both of us. This has truly helped on expenses as it's very costly as it is having a transgender daughter. I know this is not for everyone as each has their own situations, but food for thought for those are in a position to be clothes sharing.

      Welcome to the Forums, your story is very much like the ones we hear often.  Gender Dysphoria is a condition that is Consistent, Persistent, and in time VERY Insistent.  Dive on in and join in conversations and read up on what has helped others the most.

      Hey y'all ima dive right in. I first realized I was trans like fully accepted at age 24 I was going to transition my wife was supporting so on and so on.

      I started on estrogen patches at 71, 2 3/4 years ago. No problems, but it's important to do this under a doctor's supervision with tests to monitor E & T levels.

      ITS A GiRL✨💥💕 @Bri2020 Happiness and excellent healing to you sister!!   Glad your daughter has somewhere to go and be safe.    Rest easy, right? 😊 🌈🌈

      Hi. I recently had voice feminization surgery with Dr. Haben in Rochester, NY. There's another thread with a woman who wasn't so happy with the results, so check out that discussion, too. I agree with what most of the people above said. This surgery is probably one of the riskier ones, but I really wanted to have it done. I'm only about a month and a half post-op, so I still have a couple of months (or more) before I can really judge the results. I'm quite satisfied with the results, however. My pitch is noticeably higher and that's what I was aiming for. My voice is still a bit weak, but I only just started talking, so I feel confident that that will improve. I thought Dr. Haben did a good job. If you decide to get this surgery make sure you have plenty of time to recover. Good luck with whatever you decided.

      I, too, started a couple of months before turning 69. I have as family history of cardiac issues, no including heart attacks, and my I have 3 cardiac stents myself. I'm on a blood thinner, and I take me estrogen pills sublingually to minimize adverse effects. Working well for me so far, 15 months in. Cardio workup in the spring was all systems go.
