7 Weeks after surgery! Exercise and Strength Training Woo Hoo!

Sunday, May 05, 2013

I went to the Doctor last Tuesday. He finally released me from all restrictions regarding exercise and strength training. I have to say that my stomach is still numb so I don't feel things when I lean against them such as sinks or when my personal trainer is helping me stretch and leans against my hip bone I didn't even know he was leaning into me. It was just plain weird. Anyway, I decided to invest in me and hired a personal trainer to help come up with a plan while I am in Montana visiting my other sister. I especially need help with my upper body strength training. A few years ago I had a problem in my shoulder area. I lack flexibility. Hey I knew I needed help when I am applying makeup with my right hand and have to take my left and just ever so slightly need to guide my right arm to the right area. So he said I need to gain flexibility before strength. Or something like that. All I know for sure is that I will take my notebook with me. I already told my sister Julie that she would have to help me with some of those strength exercises. I am not too worried about cardio. So this week I meet with PT 4 days in a row. One day is upper the next lower.
