Last year I was doing HIIT, weights, and circuit and I LOOOOOVED it. And, it made me very strong and healthy and I'm convinced that helped my recovery from the mastectomy.

I can't do all of that yet. I haven't even been released for any exercise since my last surgery. But, I see my doc Wednesday and he'll probably release me so my couch potato time is coming to an end.

I think I'm going to start with Yoga this time. Since my diagnosis, I have recently realized that everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING is life or death to my psyche. So, I'm thinking yoga might help me learn to relax again.

And here I am again, aggravated at myself that I had time to break out my yoga mat yesterday and I didn't.

Most people would be shocked but when I was in college, I was a pretty serious weightlifter. My BF at the time was a power lifter and he got me started. I see pictures of my calves back then, Dang... so cut. Now I am just a soggy mess.

I hope it helps you Vicki! I do yoga b/c I know my body needs the flexibility but my type A personality? Relaxing, even when I'm doing yoga is a struggle for me

I have lost 6 lbs since the 1st of the month, which I sure must be the water weight. I am exercising more and my goal is to get 10,000 steps on my fit bit each day.

I went back to Curves yesterday!! I have even put down in writing in my planner the days I HAVE/CAN go there. I need to force myself to go because as I work mainly from home, once I started something after classes, I have a very hard time to stop to go exercising... But I really need to go. My blood pressure isn't good and I need to do something about it. I am like my father and I need to work on this now while I am still "pretty" young lol
Cross fingers for me I don't stop again.
