Even though I didn't sleep very well last night, I'm finally beginning to feel like myself again. It has taken three weeks to start feeling better. I must have been sicker than I thought! I'm still on antibiotics but for the first time today, I felt like going out and doing things without forcing myself. All I can say is finally!!!
I had to stop working out about two weeks ago because of illness. To further complicate matters, the weather has been so variable that I was afraid to go back to water aerobics because the water was too cold. Today I took the bull by the horns and signed up for an arthritis water class in a therapeutic (95 degree) pool at the YMCA. The class is 3X a week for the whole month of February. Hopefully if the weather is nice I can add a couple sessions in the outdoor pool too. I just can't continue to not work out because of the cold water temperature. I feel like my body is getting flabby and my joints are stiff. Now I have a plan B in place (or maybe I should count it as my plan A) to keep my joints working and my muscles flexible. It's a relief to have a plan in place!
