Shock & Awe OR Yesterday I exercised for the first time in 2 Years!

Monday, February 20, 2012

So two years ago, I had my third not so successful knee surgery which left me with a sollen thigh (like I really needed that part of my body to be any more swollen!) and a swollen, bent painful knee (Go ahead and say it...I'm Hawt!)

A knee replacement may be an option but not one that I really want so my Dr. suggested that I "work through the pain" (yes, such inspiring words). So 6 months later (exercise and I don't mix - even when I had a good knee), I took the plunge.

Yesterday, my husband and I took our boys for a walk on the rail trail, I rode the stationary bike for 15 minutes ( a miracle b/c it is SO boring and I have to go SO slow), I did a 1 mile Leslie Sansone muscle mile (SO Fun) and jumped for 5 minutes on my rebounder. Considering where I've been physically for the past 2 years, this was my version of the Olympics! Oh, and I did the majority of the activities wearing patent-leather leopard print clogs (don't ask).

And today, shampoo, rinse, repeat!
