A Sort of Green Light

Today, was my first day of physical therapy.  Not only did it make me feel a little better, but my therapist gave me permission to do some cardio.  She just told me to make sure that it doesn’t cause me any pain and to do short intervals at a time.  Woo-hoo.  I’ve been feeling sluggish, and I’m starting to get tics when I see or think about the gym.  That’s not a good thing, since I am still dealing with whiplash.  LOL.  Tomorrow, I have a date with the recumbent bike.  I never knew a bike could look so sexy (wink).  I wonder how people with more permanent or serious injuries find ways to stay fit.  Hmmm.  Feel free to let me know if you have any clues. That’s the big news for the day.  Tomorrow, will be my day to tackle an intriguing fitness infomercial.  You’ll have to come back to check it out.  Good luck on your journeys of health.

Much nub, health, and fitness,

I’m Back

Hi.  Thanks for stopping by.  I’m picking up my fitness journey with a back and neck injury, but I’m determined to get back on the “wagon.”  It’s time to quit making excuses about comfort food and how I’ll get started again tomorrow.  I need some help.  I need suggestions on good exercise alternatives with a gimpy back.  Thanks ahead a time.  I know what I need to do on the food side…quit shoveling crap in my mouth.  My body is revolting anyway.  It’s saying “Give us us low fat” (imagine Djimon Hounsou in Amistad).  LOL. I’ve definitely been indulging in more fried food and candy.  Well, I’m off to get myself together and work on this site.  Have a great day!

Much nub and health,

60 Minute Spin

I rushed to the spin class, and anxiously looked around for a bike.  Unfortunately, the only one I saw was a bike right in the front by the instructor.  This bike seemed foreign…nothing like my now familiar bike in the Y.  I was too late to get it adjusted so, I kept hitting the seat even when I would stand.  That’s just a side note.  That class was a killer.  60 minutes of intensity.  That instructor kept saying that he didn’t want us to recover too much.  I must say I don’t think I could have taken another minute.  I am positive that I have never sweat that much in my life.  I did feel good at the end.  I faced my fears and went to a non-beginning 60 minute spin class at a new gym.  I survived my first workout day in Atlanta.  What was even more wild is my upper body was dying during that class.  We’ll see how I’m feeling tomorrow.  I have a strong suspicion there is some soreness waiting for me over the horizon.  One of my old trainers used to say, “pain is just weakness leaving the body.”  I need all of this weakness to go.
I hope you are having a great day, and thanks for all of the support.  20 days down.  1 day until it’s a habit.  Ok, I need to think of another way to do a countdown because I need more than 21 days 🙂
Much nub and fitness,
