At about 7:00 PM, I was sitting on my couch watching The Office on Netflix. I had just finished unpacking, cleaning up, and eating dinner (not the healthiest dinner in the world, but I had eaten) when I decided i could just as easily watch The Office in my bedroom while riding the spin bike. It’s a good think that The Office episodes are only about 20 minutes long, because that is about all I could muster. It occurred to me that I hadn’t been really active since I hurt my back in August, and before that I hadn’t been very religious about working out. I just have to say that I’m in terrible shape. Luckily, my back didn’t hurt at all while I was exercising, and I was able to do my physical therapy abdominal workout after I was done. A very good sign.
As I was riding, I remembered something my physical therapist said. She told me that I don’t have to get my entire workout in at one time. Since I have the time this week, I’m going to try working out twice – 2 20-minute workouts – during the day. This week it shouldn’t be too hard. I’ll let you know how it goes.
