I graduated from physical therapy today! Now I know how to do the exercises I should be doing. Still walking, as well.

It’s been a crazy week for me. Very busy. But I wanted to post my go to meal for when life takes me away from home.

I love Subway. It’s pretty healthy, tasty and filling. And I can have it vegan!

I should have more content next week as I won’t be so busy.

How are you staying well?

I thought I’d do something different today and take you on a pictoral visit to my physical therapy session.

This is where I always start. Two minutes in each direction.

Next is the pulley section. It’s always three sets of ten, with varying weights depending on the exercise.

Then there’s the resistance bands.

Next are balance exercises. And we end with stretching and a little bit of dancing to the music he plays! Lol!

Then there’s dimner from Chipotle’s because I’m ravenous by the time we’re done. All vegan and all delicious!

How do you spend your Wellness Wednesday?

I was going to post a picture of the gorgeous veggie sandwich I ate as we were out today. I had a physical therapy appointment and later, a doctor appointment. But for some unknown reason, it didn’t come out. But it was full of spinach, romaime, tomatoes, red onions, pepperoncini and black olives. I would have had radishes, but they weren’t offered. It was on a whole wheat bun and was extremely delicious and filling.

I’m not getting as many steps as I was, but I’m still walking everyday. Some weeks I’m just not as motivated. I do, however, get quite a workout in physical therapy. I’m even working up a sweat, and I don’t usually sweat.

Sometimes you just have to take it slow but still keep putting one foot in front of the other. Summer days are hot and lazy.

Anyone have any good ideas for vegan meals?

I got new shoes! My old ones wore out! I guess that’s what happens when you increase your steps. I have bought many different shoes, but I always go back to New Balance. I try to make conscious choices, but I have such high arches (when I put all my weight on one foot, I can still slide a pencil all the way under it) that it’s the only brand that supports them. I’ve even had podiatrists try to fit me. But I have to walk!

What are you doing to increase your wellness?
