I appreciate the wisdom and the honesty guys. I agree jungledoc, I need to look at the big picture and not max out after one or two weeks. I need to find peace with those days that I rest, I feel like I might be missing an opportunity but I'm seeing that the rest is beneficial and needed.
A friend said it might benefit me to start drinking protein shakes so I might try that.
My injury level is c2 and incomplete. My right side is stronger, my right arm and hand can do almost anything but has limitations that can be improved. My left arm and hand is weak but I've been working on it. My legs move, with a walker with a bicycle seat for added support I walk almost everyday, right now only about 250 feet. I can do squats and am up to 21 before my walk everyday.
My limbs need work and I know can improve greatly. But my core is key to it all. So I try to work on my back. Since I'm reliant on the wheelchair I'm trying to find effective exercises that I can do without needing help since help won't always be available. I know I can progress beyond most's imagination, but figuring out the way to get there is what I hope to find.
Jungledoc not sure if you saw this video, it shows some of what I can do, not all though. Thank you guys again for taking the time. I greatly appreciate your help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBsr5koQAJI
