Continued Exercise Modification

Wednesday, June 20, 2012      5 comments

Thursday, June 07, 2012      2 comments

Today was day #2 of my taking care of myself during exercise. I limited myself to doing strength training during only one of my water aerobics classes. I found that the more vigorous class was much easier as a result. I kept up with all of t... Read more

Taking Care of My Body Without Guilt!

Wednesday, June 06, 2012      3 comments

Today was day #1 of following my neurologist's suggestions for working out. Since it was a non weight training day, I declined to use water weights. In the past I allowed myself to occasionally be cajoled into using them when I didn't want to.... Read more

Rest Day Pays Off

Monday, June 04, 2012      2 comments

I am so glad that I took a rest day yesterday! My body was very tired - more so than I could feel. When I woke up this morning I felt fine. I went and worked out but not vigorously. By the time I got home, I had delayed onset muscle soreness... Read more

Exercise Is Fun Again!

Friday, June 01, 2012      4 comments

When I was much younger, I did interval step aerobics and aerobics dance/exercise classes. The one thing that I detested was sweating and having my clothes feel like they were wringing wet throughout my exercise session. I often ended up by ta... Read more

Thursday, May 31, 2012      3 comments

We had a safe but very tiring trip and I'm glad to be back. I do very well when I have a routine and getting back to mine feels good. The burial was short and sweet without the same stress and pain that much of hubby's family experienced in Fe... Read more
