Recovering from dental surgery
Monday, March 25, 2013
After a great week last week, where I gained muscle and lost fat, this week I am recovering from dental surgery, and the dentist forbade me to exercise. I am drinking liquids since I can't chew.
After refraining from physical activity for 2 days, this morning I took a short walk, then took my pulse. It was 80 bpm (normal is 60-63 for me). So, I sat down and rested a few minutes until my pulse went down to 60. Then I waked just a little and it shot back up to 70. In addition, the surgery area began hurting. After doing this resting and walking to the next park bench a few times , I realized how tiring the walking was and headed home by bus.
Once home I lay on the balcony in the mild sun and the heart rate returned to 60. Today I tracked the healthy shake I made (almost 1000 calories) and it is no wonder that I gained a kilo.
So, I have to track and measure portions carefully again. A kilo can come off again. Back on track again today with eating,and slowly with exercise, as my body and recovery permits.
