A Squeamish, Exhilarating Day

Day 10. My right thumb is out of action for a few days. I never realised just how much I used it. Like for almost everything it’s involved somehow - opening pistachios without the use of one’s thumb is a thrilling experience for example. Buttering crackers without it gets a bit messy too. Adapting to this new world of mine is strange and challenging but I can see how useful it is too. Getting my sides in balance. Come on leftie, let’s see what you can do. I also love that bodies heal. Thank goodness. I officially have an ouchie.

I can report that after one session with the kegel Peardrop weights my muscles are truly on fire down there. I actually keep needing to say ‘woah there!’ to them because after not feeling them for 40 years, they have definitely arrived and all it took was a beautiful weighted Pikmin alien to help me find them again. I used them for 15 mins doing tightening exercises and walking around a bit to see what it felt like. It felt fine. I felt a little achy by the end and really, this is a joy after such a long absence of any feeling at all. A tight core is an exciting prospect. I will continue.

So a mini dance after a fairly traumatic morning where I tried to relax and unwind. I got a bit bouncy at one point and took my new and improved kegels for a spin. Such a vibrant feeling. A big victory for my kegel muscles. Yay!

I’m putting this video in with a warning.

I’ve started getting interested in chiropody, Well, certain parts anyway. Mainly callous removal as this is what affects me every 2-3 months. I want to learn about my feet. To heal them. Myself. Everything else about feet makes me squeamish. Just not this.

So I found a professional practise putting videos on YouTube. If you’re at all interested in watching a corn being removed then this video is epic. Start at 9m 37s. If you’ve ever had a corn you’ll know what I mean. Luckily, I’m a mild case compared to this. If you’re squeamish about this sort of stuff then obviously don’t watch it.
