Let's Get Physical

Saturday, February 08, 2014

Even though it's only mid-morning, today is AWESOME!:-)

Today I woke up without the medical condition affecting me - yay! I only have about 3 days per month like that, so I'll take it:-) Of course, it might hit later, but that's okay...

I went to the Wellness Center to do the routine that the trainer gave me. I had to skip a day yesterday. Even though she said I can do it daily because I'm using my body weight instead of weights (doesn't she know my body weighs more than any weights I could use? lol), I could tell I needed rest yesterday. It might take me a bit to work up to doing it more than every other day, but a year from now, who cares as long as I'm being consistent?

While the items she has me do seem unconventional to me, I'd say they're working:-) I already feel better. I worked out for about 50 minutes, including cardio and ST. Okay, I know that's no much for those of you who work out for 2 hours or more per day, but this is HUGE for me!:-) I feel awesome, I feel happy, I feel like I could fly!:-)

I think this has to help me medically. Even if it doesn't, it still makes me feel better. And I think that will definitely chase a lot of the blues away.

It's been a while since I've worked out like this. I guess it's been since I was in physical therapy after my hip replacement surgery. But I hope I continue like this the rest of my life - it's worth it 'cause I feel so awesome!

Happy Weekend, all!

    I have also had complete hip replacement surgery in the Summer of 2010. I don't know if you have other physical restriction, but, if not, I can only recommend to get physically active and do all you can to get your strength back. Walk as much as you can and time permits; swim, if and whenever you have a chance. I strength train 2 - 3 times a week. I happen to play golf and walk the course to get my 10K to 15K steps a day in. I don't know how old you are, but I am 73 years old and thank God every day for allowing me to get a new hip. emoticon
    Keep moving and you will feel so much better over time. I hope, the way you feel today, is only the beginning of good things to come.
