Go me!!!! My aid couldn’t come today, so I couldn’t go to the pool. I guess I could’ve asked my daughter to come with me, she would have, but I didn’t want to bother her. Instead I got my Beachbody programs on my TV and I did my workout. I haven’t done my Beachbody workouts probably since July, thanks to the shoulder tendinitis. I always refused to let MS tell me what I couldn’t do and amazingly it was my shoulder that made me stop doing things. I actually did one of the programs while I was in the pool, but it’s a little difficult in the pool plus the water got in my eyes.
Not only did I complete the exercise this morning, but I actually stood for almost 14 minutes out of the 30. That’s more than I ever stood when I was doing it six days a week. I don’t know where my legs got that stamina this morning. I was so proud of myself. I had a pat myself on the back. That was amazing. I made the decision to start doing it again on the weekends when I didn’t have my aid. On the weekends, I don’t feel so much of a pressure to be done at a specific point. Right now, before she comes, I like to have my blog done because it’s hard to do that when she’s here. That takes time and some mornings, I don’t even finish by the time she shows up. Adding exercise BEFORE the blog would be difficult on those days.
So now I’m breaking out my exercise to be on the weekend Beachbody programs, three days pool, and two days physical therapy. Since one of those days physical therapy and pool are combined I have one day off. Between the issues with my weight and the issues of how I’ve been feeling, I noticed I need to move again. My life became to sedimentary. That has to change.
So now it’s 8:30 AM and I’ve been done with the exercises for just under an hour. My body is tired, I know that, but I rested my legs and I should be OK to get up and walk. I’m just very proud of myself today. Every now and then you have to be proud of the little achievements and today it wasn’t even a little achievement for me this was a big one.
