Summer Challenges


Friday, June 28, 2013

All week I have been outside with my 13 year old son. I have been supervising him trimming the bushes in the front yard. I feel guilty about having him do all the work because the doctor has put me on weight restrictions with my back. She doesn't want me bending, pulling, pushing or lifting more than 5 pounds.

So we only spend 15 minutes out there at a time so that I don't over do on standings.

Doctor also told me to take Robert with me to the grocery store so that I am not over doing on the restrictions. Doctor also said to stay away from the fitness center. I am worried that I will gain back all the weight I have lost due to not working out. She did say that I could walk for 15 minutes at a time. But to rest for 20 afterwards.

This is why I haven't been around on the challenges this week. But will probably pop in to see how everyone else is doing.

Hope everyone has a good weekend with all you do.
Until next time,

I am scheduled to go and see a specialist in late July.

    Robert is awesome! It's hard when we have to heavily rely on someone, especially a teen. God has his reasons. All the same....

    Sorry to hear about all your restrictions. Are you feeling better?
Chair exercises can be an exertion on your back too.

    Sharon, do not feel bad about having your kids do chores...

Are you ok for swimming or water walking? It is very low impact and it is nice to be in the water.

Sometimes when I have to take it easy, I watch my food better, so it might actually make eating easier. Good luck.

    emoticon best way to recover is to take good care of yourself. You are boosting your sons self esteem by allowing him to help you when you need it. Praying you will soon be back in the game. emoticon

    Sorry to hear about that :( But for one, it is good for Robert to do some extra work... plus since you are supervising, you get more time together...as for the exercising...look up some chair ones and ask your doctor about them. I know when i was at my heaviest and couldn't do a lot of standing, these were great... and they really do give you a good work out...just ask your doc first :) Don't let this be a set back...just an obstacle course to get through :)

    I was on exercise restrictions for over 10 months, and found that if I kept my food spot on, that I was able to lose a little and atleast maintain most weeks. Watch what you are eating and where your calories are. From my experience, I did good when I was no higher than 1300 calories with maybe on higher day of no more the 1375. Its very discouraging not being able to exercise, but know that just because you cant exercise doenst mean the weight wont come off. If you need anything, feel free to stop by my page or send me a message. Ill be happy to share tips with you! emoticon

    Don't feel bad about asking your son to help you out. A lot of times kids are glad they can be a help when mom or dad aren't up to it; it gives them pride in themselves. Just remember to show him you appreciate him. I hope you get better soon. emoticon

    Hope you're doing better. It's hard being laid up, especially when you want to be doing something. Good luck. Listen to the doc so that you'll get better quicker.
