Had my first session with my exercise psysiologist a few days ago. Boy, am I limited in cardio due to my knee!! I can swim and bike FOR NOW ... did a lot of strengthening work with weights, exercise balls. He taught me HOW to engage my abs ... I said "EXCUSE ME ... what ABS" .. I can't find them! .. LOL ... he gave me some techniques to practice engaging those abs that I can't find! ... LOL too much fat surrounding them, THAT is going to be a challenge.
EXCITED for the next step .. TOMORROW ... receiving all my appointments for the 8 week program ... testing ... psychologist and nutritionist and trainer ... HAVE TO MAKE THE MOST OF THIS 8 WEEKS! But will have to Swim regularly in my pool because I am so limited as to what I can do ... the trainer even says the eliptical is OUT for right now because it tends to jar the knee .. the POOL will be seeing me a lot :)
Today experiencing a lot of down time at work (Boredom) which is always a BAD thing for me ... all I want to do when that happens is EAT EAT EAT! ... trying to keep the faith ... anyone with any tips when you have NO choice to do anything else ... meaning boredom while working ALONE on a Sunday for 10 hours with almost nothing to do!!! HELPPPPP!!
My grandkids are really excited for me ... which really makes me feel GREAT.
ONWARD ... Thank you Lord for allowing me to take this journey!!!!
