Weigh-in day today.Dr C gave me 'permission' to continue walking and do (...wait for it...) Yoga!!
Is she serious??
I have no doubt I will be kicked out for giggling within minutes of being asked to 'ommmm' - it's not going to work!!
But heck, I'll try anything once (but does it have to be Yoga?) - sigh...
Anyway, Dr C didn't give me 'the face' today, which can only mean I've put on weight.
But we did have a chat about what needs to happen before I can start exercising safely again. She thinks I should be medically stable again within about a month, but that it takes a lot longer to build up muscles than it takes to break them down - so for the sake of my weakened heart (and general body condition) I must not do any running.
Which I do agree with.
She would also like me to consider why I so badly want to exercise. And if it is for stress relief (am I really that transparent) then to think about other (safer) ways to handle that in the meantime. She would like me to only return to exercise when it is for fun and fitness - not for stress relief and weight loss.
I spy another shift in perspective being required. It's just this one has been with me for so long, I don't quite know how to change it...
