I really need to do exercises and the best place is the gym, especially in the pools. This involves swimming before or after work. Last night I didn't get home until 7:00 p.m. and was in bed by 8:00 and this has been frequent. The schedule at my new gym will be even later for the aerobics swim classes 2 nights a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. When I get home that late I just want to crash and hubby who is retired and alone all day wants to talk and I just want to go to sleep. I don't see a solution since I am working all day and the swimming doesn't start until 5 or 6 in the evening and in order to get to work on time I have to be up by 5:30 at the latest.
On the days I swim before work I have to get up at 4:30 and so I am in bed by 8:00, also.
I wouldn't be so engrossed with the gym and swimming but both my knees have been really sore and stiff lately and I know I haven't been doing enough exercise. I need to work on quads and glutes strengthening also as I have problems getting up from the floor. One day last week I slipped in my bedroom and it seemed to be quite awhile before I could get up again, so I know those muscles are weak.
Trying to explain this to hubby just doesn't work...he thinks everything in the world revolves around him.... and I guess I am seeing everything from my perspective, also.
