Whole Body Challenge report – 5/21

Whole Body Challenge report May 21

A most remarkable day! I reached my goal of 3 sets of 10 leg lifts!

I had given up on making the goal, but some of you said I would make it, somehow, and I did!  Perhaps the day of rest yesterday helped my muscles recover, or perhaps my increasing the Gel a little helped also.

It is encouraging to be able to transfer from the power chair to the leg bench by myself.     This was to document my increase in mobility and that I have gained some independence.

Betty was filming, not standing by as “spotter” or to help.  When I first started transferring to the bench, my male helper had to give me a little boost.

Did 20 leg presses!  Walking was 120 ft, and my weight is holding at 134 lbs.

I went 60 steps on the stepper, which is more than the usual daily amount.

I am elated to have made the leg lift goal, especially after thinking it was impossible!

Check back next week for the conclusion of the Challenge contest.
