So.....coming onto the site to log in my nutrition thus far today also inspired and reminded me to do my exercises which I have just finished. It's later in the morning than I have been doing them, but hey, they're done. Reading other blogs I was reminded that I do isometric exercises, also, spaced throughout the day. I never count these on my exercise timeline. I don't usually time them so I don't know how long I actually do them.
I'm recovering from a hip injury. I thought it was just bursitis along with a muscle that was cramping up. I think it's more than that. Mostly I feel much better but when I stand from sitting for awhile, I still have to just stand there for several seconds before I can put my right foot down and put wt. on it. I'm usually using the crutches at this point. After walking around a bit things don't hurt much and I don't need the crutches. I can usually still feel a "stiffness" in the hip joint though. So, maybe there's a bit of osteoarthritis there too. Hopefully dumping a few pounds will make this feel better. That and strengthening the muscles. I need to figure out a good gentle exercise to strengthen the muscles in my back, butt and core. Guess it's time to do some research!
