Doctor's Warning

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

The heat wave and haze in Malaysia is set to become worse! One doctor has warned us not to exercise if we have a chronic condition, like asthma or a weak heart. It was on the news last night. I think I qualify bcoz I'm on dialysis so I'm not exactly in the prime of health either. But if sweating buckets or getting dizzy in the middle of a cardio session and fainting doesn't appeal to me. I will at least wait till it cooler during dusk to get a walk in at least.

I'm not going to take the doctor's warning as an excuse NOT to exercise at all. But I will tone down the intensity. This is bcoz I've been getting dizzy spells recently and my blood pressure keeps dropping periodically for some strange reason!

I REALLY pray that the weather will get better soon! And the haze will disappear!

    emoticon Yes, I'm praying for your weather to cool down. This does sound worrisome. Can you exercise indoors? And, I want to encourage you to talk to your doctor about the dizziness. Please be careful and take good care of you. emoticon

    You need to tell your doctor and let him know about the dizzy spells and as you are not able to drink allot of water because of your condition you have to be careful about all your liquids that you take in. Also have you tried freezing the water so that you can slowly drink it all day? That is what my late husband told his sister and she goes to dialysis too

    I am also praying that the weather will be better soon. I think the heat is getting to me too due to the fact my chest is feeling uncomfortable for the past couple of days.

Take care & have a fabulous day! emoticon

    You know what would be a really awesome summer workout? Swimming. Easy on the joints, total body workout, and you don't get over heated. That's what I did for a workout when I was pregnant with my son in the middle of a hot summer. I just had to remember to wear sunscreen. The only caveat with that is that you have to have access to a pool. My in laws had one in their back yard at the time (they moved and so did we, so its not available to me anymore). I've heard of classes that work on strengthening the body in gentle ways. I think a lot of therapy places use this method. I work at a facility for seniors that has a pool. The residents swear by it as the best workout they can get.

    I hope it cools down soon. Is there a way you can exercise indoors? Maybe you could do that until the heat breaks.

    Wow, that must be bad. Just be wise with your exercises. Just move your body but make sure you are not heating up too much.

Not much exercise today!

Sunday, June 16, 2013

I don't know if it's bcoz I'm sore or bcoz I'm lazy but I had an enjoyable evening stroll complete with chatting with neighbors & meeting 2 new doggie friends!

I did enjoy myself but I did not sweat much at all. I was planning to do a DVD but my dad was watching TV. Being father's day and all plus, it's his day off so I headed out for a walk. Lucky for me it was a cool breezy evening.

    Although it wasn't vigorous exercise, you did get outside to walk. Tomorrow maybe you can walk a little faster try one of the videos that is a little more challenge.

Congratulations on continuing to stick with it!

Saturday's workout

Saturday, June 15, 2013

I was deciding between a cardio ballroom workout and a pilates/barre fusion workout for today. I started my workout at 2pm and it was so hot! I finally decided on the 2nd DVD as I was feeling a little dizzy and mat work appealed to me.

It's the first time I'm doing this DVD though I've watched it through once to make sure it's a good quality DVD with no problems. It's from Leah Sarogo, it's called Ballet body Core workout or something like that. All I can say is : "Oh! My abs are hurting!!!!" during the workout. But now I feel a little tired, but a good sort of tired, though I'm not sweating as much as I would if I had done the cardio ballroom one. But I'm sweating already bcoz of the heat and I didn't fancy so much sweating today as the weather is sooo hot these days!

I might do the cardio ballroom one tomorrow evening, but not in the afternoon. I had to exercise in the afternoon today bcoz I have Bible study this evening. I didn't have lunch today bcoz I'm still full from breakfast, I had one of my Mom's homemade tuna puffs. I'll be having dinner with the bible study group tonight anyway, so I'm keeping my appetite for that!

Well, I'm going for my shower now and I will be getting ready for my Bible study!

Cheerio!

    Sounds like a great workout. Good call not doing cardio if you were hot and tired. I've done a couple Pilates and barre videos on spark people. Those are tough. A good tough.

I hope you have a great weekend! emoticon

    I went to the store for 3 items yesterday and only got 2 of them which meant that I had to make another trip. Senior moment in my case.

Toning today!

Sunday, June 09, 2013

Well, I had a blast doing that cardio ballroom DVD yesterday. My lower body is still a little sore today so I did a 20 minute upper back toning workout, and 15 minutes of ab and leg toning workouts. So, like 35 minutes altogether. I didn't sweat as much as yesterday but boy! am I feeling it now!

I just started exercising again even though I haven't truly shaken off the osteoporosis yet (long story), but I can't wait anymore, the exercise HAS to start. I'm hoping to tone my abs and get rid of my little love handles! yuck! love handles!

So, I have dialysis tomorrow, so rest on monday, I'll do some more cardio on Tuesday. Will see!
