A New Beginning...

Sorry if I was MIA for awhile... I was hiding out w/ Josh in the Bermuda Triangle (lol -- j/k).

******************************

Two days ago (with the approval of the Neurologist), I joined a new 1 month exercise program cleverly called "Sweatsuit to Swimsuit Bootcamp".

DAY 1: Watched the required 10-minute Cardio Kickboxing video. After the video, I was so energized and motivated I then went for a 1/2 hour walk before going to a friend's house to help w/ some gardening.

Day 2: Started off my morning with 100 push-ups before breakfast. After a long, grueling day at work I went for a 1/2 hour walk to unwind. Sometime this evening, I'll be doing the required 10-minute video (tonight it's stretching).

Okay, so why am I doing this?
Well, last December I pinched a sensory nerve in my right thigh. Unsure which nerve or how severe the injury was, my doctor had me stop all excessive physical activity (spinning, aerobics, distance walking, slim training, etc.) until I saw the Neurologist.

In that time period (3 months), I gained 8 lbs. So, I'm striving to get back into shape.
