Polk County (Florida) Group's Sixth Team Walk

Saturday, September 26, 2009

Today our local team held it's sixth team walk! Nine people walked with our group today. We did two miles in about 40-45 minutes. Not a bad pace considering the heat and humidity! (It was 85 degrees and very humid) I love the way that the exercise combined with the camaraderie of Spark Friends makes me feel. The whole process of walking as a team is good for my body as well as my emotional support system. The time went so quickly because we're talking and getting to know one another. Before we knew it, we were through! Everyone liked it so much that we've already scheduled two more team walks. One for October 5th (a week day) and one for October 17th (a Saturday). I really look forward to these times of fellowship and exercise. I can't wait for the next walk! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I'm Feeling A Bit Better!

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

I'm happy to report that I was able to do my water aerobics class yesterday. I skipped the weights and kept the jumping up and down to a minimum and today I'm still sore but feeling much better. I had a medical massage on Monday and I plan to have one once a week for the next few weeks. It really made a difference. Tomorrow I'll go to water aerobics again - I took today off as a precaution. My doctor was right, heating the muscles and working them gently is very helpful. Tomorrow when I work out, I'll use water gloves. I won't do any weights until next week. The water is very healing and felt wonderful on my sore old body!

    That is good you found water aerobics helpful to you. I wish I was there right now. Had a strenuous day at work. So very tired. To make matters worse, I have a blister on my toe. Ouch.

I'm healing

Monday, September 21, 2009

I did my follow up with the doctor this afternoon. The ER doctor made me promise to see her today so I called Friday after I got home from the hospital and made an appointment. I wasn't as stiff this morning as I was yesterday. Yesterday I felt awful! Today, I started off my day with a medical massage which was very helpful and eased my stiff, sore muscles. Then I went to my doctor's appointment. The doctor said my neck, shoulder, hip, knee and lower back were all bruised (no big surprise there I could feel the bruises right away after the lady ran into the back of my car). She wants me to get a medical massage once a week and work back into my water aerobics class - starting tomorrow! I was a bit surprised at that but she did say to ease back into it so I'll be fine. If I'm not, she told me to call her immediately. I'm to follow up with rest and pain medication and either heat or ice when I get home after working out. Now that I have a plan, it will be up to me to use good judgement and moderation in my workouts.

    So sorry to learn that you were involved in an accident. Very happy you were not seriously injured. Those muscles and tendons and all can really hurt. Take your Doctor's advice and take it slow and easy. emoticon

I'm Making Progress!

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Today I completed my third day of water aerobics this week and I have to say that I'm making progress! I'm finding some of the moves much easier and I'm not as tired when I'm finished. I can feel the increase in my stamina and can see increased tone in my body. I'm enjoying working out and have made several new friends. It has turned out to be a big win/win for me!

I've Achieved My Exercise Goals This Week!

Friday, September 11, 2009

I'm feeling proud of myself today. I set a private goal of going to water exercise four times this week and I met that goal! I also did quite a bit of walking - the team walk yesterday and walking for the purpose of exercise inside an air conditioned place. I'm not sure how sore my muscles will be tomorrow, but mentally I feel great!
