Cardio Core and Flexibility

Friday, October 19, 2018

Had a year plus of health problems which led to a very sedentary life style. Then on August 14th I had double cataract eye surgery and realized that I could no longer see the numbers on my really 'old' scale - to far too be close/too close to be far. Now have a sexy new one with light up digital numbers and it even tracks 'part of a pound'.

I am sticking to an average of 1600 calories per day - and have lost just over six pounds.

Going to city Fitness Centre (more appealing name than GYM). I told the fitness instructor I want to improve cardio, strengthen core, regain flexibility - oh, yes, and perhaps loose some weight. The program he gave me included bicycle and rowing machine for cardio, weights and floor exercises for core and flexibility - going three times per week. Starting slow and seeing results/improvements.

    This is great, Audrey. I had the cataract surgery last year at this time and need to go back. I have so-called secondary cataracts. It's supposed to be a simple laser procedure. My knee is still recovering but I've been working my way back up to my daily step goal, doing a 10-minute morning warm-up, 10-minute evening stretch and am adding ST at least three times a week. Slow and steady wins the race. NOW, I need to follow your example and get back to the gym!

    Way to take control of your health, weight and overall well being 👍 Starting slow is a realistic goal and allows you to get acclimated to the routine and exercises.
