getting back on track

Sunday, March 25, 2018

After a ski accident, I am now trying to get back to exercising in the gym on a regular basis. Starting tomorrow. I belong to the Y and I think at this point, swimming would be my best choice with possibly doing some cardio on a bike as well. Don't really want to spend time going to Physical therapy when I have been down that road several times with two partial knee replacements. I skied 3 times in one week after a very strenuous vacation trying to keep up with my little sister....Went to Costa Rica and did a lot of hiking kayaking and whitewater rafting. We stayed on a hill that was a really hard climb every day....we used the local buses as much as we could and also did rent a car for a couple of days, but it was hard on my knees even though I had dropped a few pounds and lowered my BMI by 1 percent before I left. Too much pounding on the knees and gained more weight when I got home and started eating too much junk food.
So back with Sparks and getting back on track.

    Wow I am SO in the same situation! I fell skiing, knees and hip are sore, and it has set back my fitness. I'm seeing an orthopedist next week. Best wishes to you! I am doing easier walks and going to the gym for strength training.

    You're already ahead of three game but being active overall, you'll get there. Getting INTO the gym is the hard part. 😉
