Okay so Sat I did not do my walking, my head hurt & my neck hurt (old injury) so I was lazy and went to bed early. I did say I would take off at least 1 day per week, so that was it. Today I did 'Yoga for Dummies' with hubby and I was more flexible than I thought. My balance is for crap tho so...

Hubby has agreed that we will do the Yoga every day for now so that is good. I am going to do water aerobics tomorrow & yoga with hubby before dinner.

Hi everyone. Am I alone here on the exercise challenge?? Anyone else doing anything fun??

Yesterday I did water aerobics in the morning & yoga at night. All I have to say is that I a tired & sore!! We did all 12 of the core yoga poses and some are very tough to do. We plan to do it again tonight but I also will do my WATP video as well.

I'm kinda here in a pathetic excuse filled way. Didn't go to the gym yet as had horrid PMT symptoms and really heavy period all weekend. Hoping to go tomorrow as Thursday is one of our normal days to go but will depend what time I get back from Stoke.

As yoga is teaching me (in my best zen voice)

'Intention is important because it prepares the mind for doing'

Your intention to exercise is the first step in doing exercise so well done! Now that darn tricky part, the actual doing...;)

Good for you! If it is fun you are more likely to stick with. How is your balloon doing?

Hi
I'm dying to start doing some exercise. I took my dog for a walk tonight for the first time since op and it was fab. I'm going to start wearing my pedometer again and do some gentle walking. When I get the all clear I'm going to rejoin the gymn and make sure I do lots of toning exercises and keep up with the dog walking. Ultimately I'd like to start running, learn to ski and start horse riding again - but maybe a little soon for all that just now!!!

Hi

That's the spirit but do go easy on yourself, your number one job right now is to heal and get used to your new plumbing. Walking is a great start but listen to your body, you need your fuel to heal.;););)

well just to let you know i havent started working to school yet its been to icy and cold and my 2 year old just wants to play in it not understanding that its ice not snow lol
Well, it has been a mess outside I agree. I always fear ice walks because I am a clumsy girl & fall! Just try and be active, it is the one thing I did not do before my op that I wish I had.:D

WOW that is some dedication. I know I could have never managed it pre-op, heck I am not sure I could do it now. You will have an advantage in your recovery!:p:p:p

I've just been for a jog, does that count? :character00115:

Sadly its a bit icy out and the hotel is on the edge of a quite rough looking estate, so i won't be repeating my heroic efforts tomorrow. Luckily, I have found that there is a JJB club 3 minutes up the road (I'm a member of my local JJB so can use any of their clubs) so will go there tomorrow after the course on the way back to the hotel. Would go in the morning but they don't open till 8! :eek:

WOMAN!! JOGGING??? Seriously?? You rock!! That is super. Please don't jog in dodgy areas, I don't want to have to worry that someone will snatch you!!

You get a gold star for effort missy!

That sounds like a good plan T. Just go easy on yourself and build up your exercise a little at a time. You will soon have extra energy and before you know it you will have lots of stamina & have toned up.

N:D

Okay so I have not posted here for a few days. I have had my TOTM and not wanted to even move much less exercise:(.

So Friday I walked 2 miles, Sat nothing, Sunday walked about 1 mile maybe a little less. Today I walked 1 mile this morning, plan on a second mile a bit later and some yoga tonight. My swimming was cancelled today so I will have to wait until next week:(.
