I need to increase my activity levels. I'm doing a whole lot better than I was a few weeks ago, but I need to do even better. I'm averaging around 7,000 steps per day, which is awesome. There was a point where I had a hard time breaking 5,000. But I need to do even better than that. I need to get it to 10,000 every single day and I'm not completely sure how to do that. My legs feel tired all the time. All. The. Time. My feet are frequently sore. I know that part of the problem is my knee, but that doesn't account for the tiredness and soreness. Or does it? I'm not sure. I do know that I took 2 ibuprofen yesterday morning at around 7 and felt absolutely fantastic all day. So maybe that's the key? If I'm feeling tired legs and sore feet take a couple of ibuprofen to help? Maybe that's the answer. I don't know. I keep thinking I should go to the vein doctors that I see on TV. Then I think I should go to LaserTech since they cure your pain. There are literally so many options, it would be nice if someone could say do this and it will work. But that's not going to happen.
I do have a doctor's appointment on Friday with a concierge type doctor. They are basically primary care physicians who do a baseline assessment on you. There will be a body scan and complete blood work. Then they develop a program to help you reach your goals. I'm rather excited about it. In Hawaii I had Kaiser and loved it because I could see one doctor who basically coordinated everything for me. Need x-rays, go here. Need blood work, go here. Need to see a specialist, go here. I really, really liked that. So I'm hoping that this kind of turns out the same way. One doctor that I can call on who knows me and can tell me the best options for where to go. Fingers crossed.
That's it. I'm going to end this early because I need to go.
