To push, or not?

Friday, May 03, 2013

I feel like I'm at a crossroads with my exercise. I'm still struggling with my energy levels. But I can't tell if it's the lack of energy from not moving enough, or lack of energy from still recovering. So I'm doing some yoga, some walking, and a little bit of st. I'm tired (and it's 12:30) but I can't tell if I should keep pushing or go take a nap.

How do I tell the difference? I'm about a month away from the surgery. So I'm feeling pretty good, just a little tired. I'm eager to get moving again, but I also don't want to over do it. :( I just can't tell! The doc has given me the ok with the the caution - don't overdo it! But what's overdoing it?!

    Set small goals and see how you feel after them. "I'll walk 20 minutes tonight. I'll do 15 minutes of strength training, etc." Then evaluate how you feel. If you are exhausted, then take a power nap. If you aren't then up the time by 5 minutes in a day or so. Hang in there you will figure this all out!

    Hate that. You can do it.

    Hey, if you think you need a nap, go for it. It doesn't hurt to see if that's the problem.

    Just do what you can. If you're too tired or sore, take it easy. Your body went through a lot and is still recovering!

    Sore or pain near the incision is over-doing. General fatigue is lack of movement and sleep.
