No more gym
Tuesday, July 09, 2019
With much sadness I canceled my gym membership. I went in and canceled the gym membership this morning. My body has been stressed to the max last year and this year. The doctor said possibly six months or longer for me to recover from this accident. He said added to the injuries I sustained last year in two falls my body needs rest, and lots of it. Walking is okay but lifting or using my arms too much for awhile is out of the question. I had a shoulder injury when I joined the gym last July. Working around that wasn't much fun and what I could do was very limited. It was the same last month when I went. So with these new injuries I felt that it was in my best interest to quit. I'm hoping that next February I might be able to attempt it again. Talking to the staff had me almost in tears. I'm doing what is best for my body at this time.
So this next chapter of my life will be concentrating on recovery. I won't be tempted to workout at the gym and do further damage.
My body has kept me know that it's not even operating at 50%. It's hurt and exhausted.
My chest area and into my ribs is painful. Both shoulders and collarbone are very painful. My neck hurts too...whiplash is no joke. My asthma is causing difficulty breathing. Add insult to injury I've got hives too. My son said he had run across something mowing and broke out. He sat in my recliner and apparently got whatever on my chair. I sat in it and now I'm broke out. Such is life.
This is a setback but I will continue to work towards my goals. One of which is rejoining the gym next year.
Take care. Remember that you have many challenges in life and how you respond is the defining moment.
