almost back to normal….

…..and I’m talking about my workouts here, clearly not my personality! 😉

It took David being gone for 11 days for me to finally get back into my regular routine. I did do something most days in June and July but it’s a bit tacky when people are staying with you to spend as much time as I do on workout things when I’m by myself. After having Taryn here cooking her amazing stuff I was glad not to be able to weigh myself so let’s just assume that I  need to crank up my cardio to make up for that!  The house is now back to having different colored stretchy bands hanging all over the place since I do a lot more if they’re wherever I happen to be instead of having to go down to what passes as my exercise room to use them.

pretty aren’t they 😉

Already ticked all my morning boxes so I’m hoping that it will have cooled down enough when David gets home late this afternoon for me to get some outside cardio in before my bedtime stretching session. It is VERY NICE to have air-conditioning for the days I do the bike trainer inside though!

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.

  1. the bands are great – different colors denote different strengths but you can use them anywhere, take them anywhere, wrap them around anything solid and of course grab bars and parts of your wheelchair are perfect 😉 If you have specific issues any physical therapist will show you what to do and how much to strengthen and stretch the right muscles and of course you can use them for all kinds of regular exercises. Now if I could just quit wrapping them around my hands a few times to up the strength quotient……….bad habit!
