. . . . . . Working It Out

A few months ago I started a new workout plan, but it was derailed for a while when I started having symptoms again for several weeks. Now, I am trying to get back on track and see if I can build up some muscle in this body!

Today I rowed for 5000 meters, then I did the treadmill for 20 minutes. It may have been a bit too much, as I can hardly walk down the stairs now. :) I can go up the stairs just fine, but down is so hard! That means I had a good, tough workout, right?

The fact is, I am so grateful that I am strong enough and steady enough to be able to exercise again. It doesn't seem like that long ago that we were celebrating when I could walk a few feet, finally building up to one small lap around the park. To think of my body in those days is scary. Now I am gaining strength and hoping to keep moving forward!

I will be "confined" to exercising indoors until my eye works again, so thank heavens we have an entire gym in our basement! Anyone want to join me in starting a new summer workout program?? We can motivate each other! :)
