I am sorry I haven’t written more this week on other things besides myself but I just am not in the groove right now at all. Mostly I just feel lethargic but then have moments of great energy but I don’t focus enough to write much of anything. That said my body is taking things in stride more and more each day. I feel better and that is the main thing.
My doctor appointment went well. I was told I was healing faster than expected or normal and all my vitals were normal. Weight restriction is the only restriction now so I can’t go to the gym yet but I am hitting the trails pretty hard. Doc says he doesn’t need to see me again just keep on the weight restriction until August 7th.
The Body Rundown:
Weight Lifter: I am probably going to do what is called air lifting where I still go through the motions of a lift but don’t actually have a weight in my hand. I can then see how the movement pull on my new scar. I basically will have to ease back into things once I do start lifting again and by the beginning of September should be lifting as normal.
Hiker: I did 70 minutes of a good hard walk today in the hot weather and felt fine. I can’t really use a pack yet but I am thinking I need a fanny pack anyway so tomorrow might be a shopping day. I just need something that can carry bug spray, a bottle of water and a smart phone. When I get to the pack it will still come in handy to have the stuff I might want to reach quickly in a good place. I plan on going from 80 min to 120 min next week. The time above 90 minutes is to make up for my lack of weight lifting.
Nutritionist: I have an appointment with the diabetic nutritionist on Monday. Hopefully after that I can make a meal plan that will cover diabetes as well as weight training. These last 11 days since surgery my sugar has been all over the place. I hope I stabilize soon.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
