Iinally made it this morning. I did not get up as early as I wanted to, but decided that I would go anyway. I left here about eight. When I got there, I checked out their fitness center. I was impressed with all the new equipment that is there. Decided to go ahead and start in there. Did thirty minutes of the machines. Twenty reps each. Then did ten minutes on the recumbant bike. By that time I was ready to call it quits Just happened to look in at the pool to see what was going on and they were playing water volleyball. I don't like that because I feel like you are spending more time just standing around than moving. I knew though that I could go water walking at the one end. I just hopped into the good old swimsuit and off I went to the water. Did about thirty minutes of walking and then a class called Gentle Joints began. It went for right at an hour and I stayed and did that. They were starting another class but I decided that I did not want to overdo the first time back. Took my shower and came on home.
I really felt refreshed and thin=s evening I am really tired. Don't believe I will have trouble going to sleep. I did not quit once I got home, I picked tomatoes and grapes, carried water to some of the plants and was going to till, but it started sprinkling so I talked myself out of that.
By then it was time to begin our evening meal. The meal is done and I am working on the dishes. Once that is done I am going to bed. Tomorrow is chemo and Cardiac Rehab. I had better get rested up.
I plan on going back to the Y on Wed. No matter what time I get up.
