So far, my fitness program is that I just bought a new treadmill. I have wanted one for years. I wound up with a coat rack with a spinning wheel attached. Guess what? I've become motivated enough to even ride the coat rack some!

I can't really put together a program until after Thursday afternoon. That will be my first visit with the physical therapists, and I intend to use their advise to start. More then!

Ride the coat rack! Anything that gets you moving Smile

I am really excited today. I just took the step (a giant step for me) of buying an elliptical machine. It won't arrive until February 27th, but I am very excited at the prospect of having a piece of exercise equipment in my own home. I am someone who hates the thought of people watching me work out. . .at all, so having something in my home that I can use without anyone other than my husband watching will hopefully be the perfect thing to get me working out more!

I tried to ride the coat rack. They told me at the emergency room to tell you not to do that, at least not with a real coat rack anyway.

Great news on the elliptical! I'm not to the point of being fit enough to use one, but it's my next peak to climb. The lady who delivered and set up my treadmill said that she had an elliptical. She said that her results went up by 40% immediately, and this is someone who works out regularly and strenuously. so, look forward to it! Embrace it! Become one with the elliptical! Watch out for that coat rack! You are going to be delighted with the support your husband gives you!

Exercise alone is not the answer. Eat healthy, lose weight, and exercise, it all works together. The exercise is good for firming you muscles, strengthening your bones, and your overall health.
