Back to the gym.

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Today was my first time back to Curves since my surgery. I was so excited to get there and sweat some. Boy was that hard! Eight weeks is a long time to be away from the gym. I pray I won't be too sore. It felt good and looking forward to going back tomorrow. The timing could not have been better. I spent the New Years holiday in the hospital,with my step dad. He is quite ill and his heart is only operating at 20%. He is in good spirits and bossing me around (as only he can do). It is a very scary time for me but this is out of my control and I will just let God do what God does. In the meantime, I am preparing his home to be comfortable for him when and if, he returns to it. If for some reason he is unable to return home, I am packing things up for a quick pack out. Such a odd space to be in. The hour I spent at curves allowed me to not think about the situation and all I did was focus on me. It was wonderful. Now I am on my way to visit with him for a few minutes before going home to crash and prepare for the next day.

    Thank you all. I woke up this morning and very little soreness. I went again tonight and it was a little easier. I figure it will take a few weeks to build up stamina. I have to get there because I will start up my walks again in February with a 5K snowshoe race. I can't wait!! Of course, the way I am loosing inches, I need a new ski jacket. My coat is way too big which is a good thing!
    My step daddy was released to a nursing rehabilitation center today so he is on his way to recovery. Hopefully, he will build up his strength enough to go back to his apartment. Thanks for all of the support.

    I love my Curves - glad to know that you're getting back to your routine, and that it's helping you with some of the stress of dealing with your step-dad's health. You are doing FANTASTIC!!
