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

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

Today I'm taking a day off from heavy exercise. I must admit that I feel a bit restless. With the hot weather, I could really enjoy a dip in the pool. However, knowing myself as I do, a quick dip could possibly turn into a vigorous exercise ... 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

Tired But Pleased After My Tests
Thursday, May 17, 2012      5 comments

Yesterday, I had my endoscopy and colonoscopy. For the first time since 1998, my stomach appeared normal. By this I mean that the red streaks and erosions are finally gone! I only had one polyp removed during the colonoscopy this time, which... Read more
Accomplishments In The Pool
Tuesday, May 15, 2012      3 comments

I went to the pool and do 100 minutes of swimming and water aerobics this morning. I'm so proud of myself! I was able to swim 15 full laps (down and back) of the Olympic sized pool. I forced myself to do it slowly so that I wouldn't burn myse... Read more

Sunday, May 13, 2012      4 comments

Last Thursday I had my nerve conduction test on my left arm. As we suspected, I have ulnar nerve neuropathy. It isn't severe enough to trigger the test but if it flares up badly again I'm supposed to call my neurologist after 3 months and she ... Read more
