I did it I joined a gym…
I joined last week and went Thursday and Friday
This week I went Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs.
I didn’t go today (yet I might go tonight) on Wed I started weights with my sister and I have DOMS I can’t walk or sit on potty I am in pain……last time I joined a gym 8 yrs ago (before falling preg with baby #6) I couldn’t sit or walk for 4 days, so this is not as bad
But I am so proud of myself…..
Just before the op I never walked I got out of breath (real bad) just going from lounge to toilet… I couldn’t stand in a shower and hubby thought I would have a heart attack just drying myself after a bath
I was petrified to join a gym or do any exercise because I wanted to be able to go on the treadmill for 30 mins
Just before op I could only do 5 mins on the treadmill at 1kmph
The exercise physioligist told me just do 5 mins and gradually increase it your doing great. This was not good enough for me the perfectionist…. I NEEDED to (in my head) be able to do 30mins
I am not sure why but I decided to join a gym…. I went on the treadmill and for the first two days I could only manage 15mins at 4kmph……I guess this was good since I only ever sat on the lounge.
I did some weights (which I have always loved along with boxing) and I was hooked…. I remembered the feeling.
I went to the gym this week and I did 30 mins on the treadmill at 4kmph ….how good did I feel
On Wednesday I did gym ( treadmill and weights) and THEN I did boxing.
A friend of mine and her world class MMA champion (Mark Hunt) own a gym and she is doing a boxing class for a few friends… I did it.. except the stomach exercises (i hadn’t spoken to my surgeon about them)
I ran for 30 secs or more ….
I am feeling great…..I am trying not to worry about the scales (stall again) as I know they will go up with the muscle gain.
I went to a shop and brought 3 shirts size 26 (use to be a 32 at least) straight off the rack nd they are a bit loose on me ….
I am doing this
I am down from 200 kg to 172.5kg
I am off my BP medication
I think I might just do this …
will leave you with my latest comparison shot ….
