As you may or may not recall, my guy gave me a year's membership at the gym, as per my request, for Christmas. January began with my weight at an all-time high, 235 pounds. eeek!!
I was diligent in my attendance, my workouts, and my swimming. Days when my body hurt, I was careful to stretch in the warmer water of the hydrotherapy pool. I continued going to the gym thru the second week of April. My weight was 215 then.
As the spring progressed, my allergies caused complications. I felt under the weather, for several weeks. Finally, I hauled my miserable self into see the GP.
She clucked and chided, and set me on a course of antibiotics. Not wanting to take a chance of sharing my ill-health or contracting anything due to a lowered immune system that was already being taxed, I avoided the gym and other public places. It turned out, that antibiotic round didn't do much.
In summary, I had been running a low-grade fever and fighting infection for about six weeks before I finally kicked it. Then, I went to visit my folks for a spell. So I'd been away from the gym, and my routine, for about eight weeks. sigh.
So, my guy came to visit, and we went to the gym for the Sunday afternoon hours. I slipped into my suitee and slithered in the pool for about an hour and a half. Yea!!
I missed the pool. Since I am still awake, and they open soon, I may go get a dip in early today. Get myself back into the swing of things, so to say.
Oh! I weigh a little less than I did two months ago, when I left the gym routine. Yippee!! Go me!!
So, I am hoping to start slimming down some more. I cannot believe that June is here already. pft.
