Argh!

So i've been doing some physical therapy exercises (which I usually get frustrated with because I'm not good at them). Anyway, I'm not strong enough to push out with my foot against the thera-band. I can go inward, upward and downward although I do fatigue easily. So since I can't even go out against the band, I have to do something with static resistance. So I push against mom's hand while she resists me.
Anyway, just to see, I pushed against mom's hand with the right one and there was a huge difference. Mom couldn't even resist that one!! But she has no problem resisting my left foot (the one that's all messed up.)
Hugs!

What colors are you using? I use red, blue, and green -- depending on the direction and how I am feeling.

My fav exercise is the one where I get to move marbles :) I'm not good at it, but it is really fun... at least in comparison to some of the other "torture" ones that I get to do in PT.

I have a kind of bright green one and that's it.

I can't really do the marble thing, buut I just remembered I'm supposed to pick clenex's up with my toes.
Guess I'll be adding that for tonight.

Kleenex with toes? Never heard or even tried that one exactly... not sure if I could do it. I like the marbles and the easiest way to get them from one side to another is to stick them between my toes ;) I know I'm supposed to be grabbing them, but jamming them between my toes is more fun!!!

I think it's a similar principal. But it'd be hard to find marlles without vision since they'd roll.
LOL about sticking them between your toes... that's a creativee solution!
