Second blog this week and I am doing well with being more active again.
After a couple of weeks of slacking on the physio front, I’ve bucked my ideas up and have completed all my exercises the last few days. Normal service is resuming on the walking front, hubby and I have been out for two half an hour walks the last two evenings, we’ve seen some amazing Christmas lights and have marveled at the positions that people must have had to get their bodies into in order to erect the lights!
As I’m now on the wrong side of 40, the middle age spread is getting to me. I have to use my trampette for one of my physio exercises, and I’ve decided to very gently jog on it. That way I can easily raise my heart rate, but not have to worry about impact. I’m only doing a teeeny tiny amount at the moment, as I need to balance my ankle getting better, and ever since I’ve had colitis, whenever I run it always sets it off the next day. I can’t afford that to happen as am on the lowest steroid dose I’ve ever been on. So, tiny steps. But hopefully, little tiny bits can, over time, be built up (ankle and knee permitting!) into slightly longer bits! Then middle age spread – you may find yourself on the way out!
