My plan is to start exercising more regularly. I *have* been walking with my neighbor. I want to add some yoga in there and some ab work too. The plan is 100 sit-ups/crunches per night (sounds ambitious, but I’ve done it before) and then to add another exercise per month as things progress. I’ve also been introduced to CHI RUNNING. I’ve checked out a book from the library, but that’s as far as I’ve gotten.
I’ve never been a runner. That’s not true, as a kid, I ran like the wind. All the time. Because I wanted to. But somehow, I got away from it. I don’t think I’ll ever be a "runner", but I’d like to increase my cardiovascular health and I think that will help.
Of course, I want to lose [a lot of] weight, but I want to do it nice and slowly. I want to be healthy for me, but I want to be healthy for my son as well. He needs a healthy mom to model proper behavior and to be there for him, always. (Good lord, I make him sound like he’s a very young child, but he’s 12 LOL)
So, I need to call my doctor and schedule a check up (although, I just had one, including blood work, back in October 2010, so don’t know if I actually CAN be seen again this soon, but we shall see).
Between chiropracty and changing deodorants, I have eliminated the pain in my armpit. The chiropracty and new pillows have all but eliminated the pain in my neck and shoulder. I still get pain if I overdo it, but if I’m smart and exercise to build up the surrounding muscle, I can get stronger! I may never be able to take Krav Maga again *sob* but HEALTHY is the goal, not ASS KICKER. (but boy do I miss kicking ass! LOL usually it was my own ass, but I enjoyed the techniques I learned, the belt I earned and the exercise I got).
