I just did an exercise DVD lasting a whole 20 minutes. Pilates. Easy version. Kicked my ass.
I don’t know whether to be proud of myself or revolted by the state my body has fallen to. Five months of chemo, six weeks of radiation, surgery three weeks ago. Right now I can hardly make it around the block. It was pretty funny doing all these exercises with my little T-Rex arms dangling out front of my body. I also got myself a DVD of exercises to do after breast cancer surgery. It was good but boring. Just a lot of arm flapping. Controlled flapping but flapping nonetheless. I did that DVD too.
I am trying very hard to be proud of myself but am embarrassed I found this stuff so difficult.
The good news is that I have lost 11 lbs over the last 3 weeks. Basically I haven’t got my appetite back after surgery and my stomach is still wrecked from the antibiotics.
I might be cancer free but I ain’t out of the woods yet. BulgeWatch 2006 continues.
