A Good Day

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Since my back surgery I have had to be very careful and limited to walking, mostly. I had a whole list of exercise for my doctor to look at and approve. He approved most of them with the words ,"Only when you feel up to them." I have done some strength training, but mostly walking.
Today, I felt very good. Oh yes there is some pain. I have gotten use to it. So today I decided to take the Nest Tea Plunge and go for some move it move exercises. Walking of course in broke up segments. I did a warm up then on to some Tai Chi, later I walked again. I did a fun 12 minute Low Impact Cardio Workout then I rested. Next I did a 10 minute Bootcamp Cardio Workout. I did have to modify some exercises. I couldn't do deep bends, so I did slight bends instead. I didn't hurt myself. I was very careful. But it feel so exhilerating. I went walking for a final time later on. I had a total of 120 minutes, today. I didn't do everything at one time. I spaced everything out. I am tired, but very happy. I ended the evening with a healthy cooked meal. I think I might get some sleep tonight. What do you think?

    Good for you to be so able after back surgery. I'm post-op after back surgery and am pretty much walking, stretching, and swimming. I'm kind of jealous I'm not at your level yet. emoticon
