Well, I'm back! Again! I needed to take a break back in June of 2012. Then I lost my job, got another one in October. However; the biggest problem is that I have not been able to work out. In fact, my ability to just walk is a major problem. This has been a big disappointment. Up until last June,2012, I was very active and had enjoyed a great deal of freedom of movement. Now it is a major task to just get out of the chair or out of bed. I can't ride my stationary bike like I use to at 20 to 40 miles at a clip. I'm lucky if I can get 10 to 15 minutes on the bike.
From June of 2012 til now, I have had major muscle pulls with my right thigh and hip and my lower back on the left side. I have pain on that right hip constantly and my left knee.
This makes me walk like I'm a 100 years old, slow and unsteady. have no idea why this happened. I have not had the courage to see my doctor thus far. Please do not lecture, I know I need to see him just in my own time. I suspect that I am having arthritis
in my right hip and it has knocked of my body mechanics of my left side. My thigh bone is going to the left and my shin bone is going to the right. There is no cartilage to hold them together.
Since last June I have not gained weight but I have not lost any weight. Good but I still need to lose another 100 lbs. I started to do some exercises but very limited and mostly sitting down.
Weights are nothing but 10 lbs, a Bull worker for the chest and Bands to work the rest of me. Have decided to try things and if they seem to work will continue them but still looking for a way to build up my cardio.
Just gonna start over and make adjustments as I go along. Start off slow and build up. Open to suggestions and ideas, so feel free to give me one or two.
