Much Better Day!

Thursday, December 06, 2012

I'm feeling better today! Yeah! It was a dark and cloudy day. I loved it. Sometimes it seems like the sun never stops shining here in the Charlotte area. Even on rainy days the sun will come out. Then again we've had very little rain this year. I like some cloudy and rainy weather.

I've discovered that if I take more than two days of exercise off in a row, I feel yucky. I was going to take a week off just to help my body heal. By day four I was ready to exercise (or scream at the top of my lungs). So I went for three very slow walks, spaced throughout the day. Then yesterday I walked on the treadmill and did strength training. I went back to 5 lb weights because the statins really made my muscles ache. I figure I will have to just go slowly and focus on form for the next month. Today I walked. I had intended to walk for an hour, but I was too tired to continue after 40 minutes. I might have to walk more slowly. Even though I got tired after my walk, I still felt great. So other than being yellow still, I'm much better.

    I feel terrible if I take even 1 day off of exercising.
    I'm glad you are doing better though!

    First, I am *so* glad you're feeling better. My thoughts are with you and I know you'll continue to improve.

    Are you off the statins? Is this all residual? Or did you switch to a different med?
