It's a wonderful life

I haven't been on as much as I should be and am going to try and correct that. In November after returning from a trip to Michigan I fell at the hospital while for my husband to have surgery. I injured my knee and couldn't work out at the gym or barely walk. In December I injured the bottom of my foot on an un level walk and tore deep tissue in my foot. Also in December my shoulder started hurting and went to the Orthopedic doc and found I had torn my rota tore cuff. Had surgery in January to repair cuff, cleaned out all the arthritis, and removed four bone spurs. I have been in (PT) Physical therapy for a couple months now and have finally been given the green light to return to the gym. Of course I am still limited as to what I can do. I am doing an hour of water aerobics three times a week, along with the treadmill, stair master, and some weight training machines that don't deal with the upper extremities. I feel so much better already. I am working a lot in the flower and vegetable garden too. I miss the yoga and other classes like like.
I look forward to working out at least three times a week from here on. I have gained five lbs and lost most of that this week already.
After having gastric bypass done a year and a half ago I weighed about 185. I should have lost more than that. I gained five lbs. from November to now. I have lost 3.5 lbs. this week. I will now play catch up so that I will have the body I want and the the health I need.
