So I’ve been doing daily exercises on my Wii Fit Plus, and at least 3-4 days out of the week those have included my 15 minute Wii yoga workout.
Might not sound like much compared to others; but for me, this is a HUGE improvement in my ability and tolerance level. I still have problems with my old knee and back injuries, but I’m hoping to help limber them up in the long run, as long as I don’t overstress them. 5 months ago
So I think I’ve managed to get my cat and I settled into a bit of a comfortable routine that makes it easier to give him his insulin shot.
First, I have several syringes pre-filled and waiting in the fridge; this makes it a lot easier when I’m having to wake myself up to give his shot. No more fumbling while half asleep trying to fill a syringe!
I take one of the syringes out of the fridge to allow it to warm to room temperature while I mix up some of the low fat, low carbo, high protein canned cat foods that I’ve researched are best for his condition.
I mix the cat food paté with extra water, to help keep him hydrated, which is very important in his situation. It also makes it easier for him to eat and digest, which is also important since he had lost so much weight.
I tuck him on my lap while sitting at the kitchen counter and give him his filled bowl. He sits his haunches on my lap and places his two front paws on the counter on either side of his bowl and starts chowing down – it’s important that he has food in his system when he is about to be given insulin.
I give him plenty of pets and cuddles and encouragement, and after he’s eaten a bit, I give him his shot. Most of the time he barely twitches now, so this whole ritual is working out for both of us. Neither of us gets overly-stressed and it’s not as big a deal anymore – I’m so glad of that! 5 months ago
I did have some crappy days this weekend when I had my monthly cycle and had aches and major cramps, so I took two days off – but I still did my weigh-ins on my Wii.
I’ve managed to go from about 5-10 minutes sessions over the day, to my very best yesterday, where I managed 75 minutes of both yoga and exercises on my Wii Fit Plus!
I can’t always manage that much; as my arthritic joints have a harder times when the weather is more rainy – but it’s still a hell of an improvement and I’m really proud of myself. I’ve managed to lose about 4.5lbs so far. 5 months ago
