WLW: Welcome Back
Hello there my Weight Loss Wednesday friends. I enjoyed your posts last week, even though I took a break from most blogging. It was nice really. Breaks are nice every now and then, you know?
Speaking of breaks. I began walking and doing tai-chi last week. It feels good to be exercising, even if it is far less than what I am used to. In my mind, it has been years since my last workout. In all actuality, it has been a month, a month and a half tops. Still, for the girl used to exercising six times a week, that long of a break was just too long. But, surgery put the brakes on everything, and I did as the doctor instructed. I know my body needed the break, I really do. And now, it is enjoying getting out and moving some.
I am anxious to find out what the report will be from the doctor at my follow-up visit. I am also curious as to what I will be allowed to do at that time. At this point, I doubt I will be released to go full throttle (which I could not do anything because man has my lung capacity decreased!), but I am curious to know what he will recommend.
Throughout this little adventure, I am doing my best to learn to listen to my body. Take the break when it is needed (but NOT from good nutrition), and fuel my body well so that it can repair and recover better. It's worth it really. Right now, I am just happy to be back in some sort of exercise routine. Now if my lungs would get back in the game (thank you, anesthesia, thank you for that setback).
Enjoy friends, and don't take for granted what your body is capable of doing!
