Out of breath and out of shape
Monday, May 06, 2013
Another letter just sent off to the boy of mine in Michigan. He is having the time of his life. I am happy for his success and the life he is living.
My week has been an eye-opener. I went to Pilates on Monday night and had to rest through half of it due to lower back pain. I did my back exercises on Tuesday night and walked 5 miles on Wednesday night. Thursday I went to a meeting and didn't do any of it. Friday I worked in the yard and pulled dandelions for over an hour, then did about an hour of washing walls before retiring. Saturday I spent the morning (about 4 hours) in the yard pushing the mower and weed trimmer, I also did my shoulder exercises. I was going to go for my 5 mile walk again today, but my stomach started with the rumbles and I chose not to. After all, I am still hurting a bit from the huffing and puffing while chasing an engine on wheels!
So, on to another week. Can I regain my momentum and will I be able to use my energy this week in exercise so that the weekend isn't such an uphill battle?
