Well I got the family room cleared back out so I can do my work outs in there. I finally got some energy & did my WATP workout. Unfortunately I was only able to to 15 min which was a 15 min mile. I can't believe how much endurance I have lost over being sick for the last month. My balance was off & I was struggling but I did it. Afterwards I got real dizzy, where I could actually see the room tilting. So I decided to hold off on the treadmill. Today I am going to try to do 15 min each. Starting over may be hard but I also know that in time I will be able to do what I was doing before. I KNOW I can do it, it will just take a little time. I am having to learn patience & to pace myself throughout my day. But it sure felt good. I really missed the WATP workout-Leslie Sansone is so motivating!
Well enough rambling for now!

    Cold and wet here so I did WATP too. Don't try to run before you can walk! You need work up gradually to what you were used to doing before you were sick. emoticon

    Baby steps! No use in overworking yourself when you may not be quite well enough to get right back in the swing of things! Very glad you're feeling better, Patti! Hope you're having a great weekend and I know you'll be right back to it soon.

    Your body and stamina will come back - patience is a virtue and you're learning that. Take Care.

    The dizzy part really concerns me! I have lived with vertigo for 12 years now, and have learned a few things. If you are getting dizzy while or after exercising your body is not well enough to exercise. That's like a huge RED FLAG! Give it time to get over this completely. The last thing you need is to fall and hit your head. .... Take a week or so and just relax let your body recoup. If your watching what you eat you won't gain any weight and it will not take as long to get back to where you were with endurance. For me, every day that I'm dizzy it takes my body a week to get it's strength back. Listen to your body, it knows what it needs. emoticon

    Take your time to adjust or you could hurt yourself.

    After being out of it for a month you will have to slowly pick up the pace. It probably is not wise to go on the treadmill if you are alone since you are having "dizziness" issues. If I am not mistaken you are at your maintenance weight so you can afford to take a couple of weeks to get back to where you were. I know how frustrating that may seem but it is sensible. emoticon emoticon

    I think starting over after a set-back is perhaps the hardest thing in the world. It's just so easy to stay on the same path and the momentum required to jump to a new path is SO INTENSE.

So I'm proud of you! Getting back to the life you want to have!

    There you go, listen to your body, you have learned so much and it will serve you well as you ease back into exercise. Try not to get discourage, you will be back to normal before you know it!!!
