Living with intention is easier said then done when it comes to my health. Right now I am a hostage inside my own body. Where I go is dependent on my digestion. (My way of saying I don't want to poop my pants) What I eat is also dictated by my bowels. My exercise is limited by scars, radiation fall out, nerve damage from chemotherapy, and here it is again....my bowels. But this doesn't mean I can't still do the best I can to take charge as much as I can.
Eventually I would like to take up biking. But as I don't own a bike, this will have to wait. I use to do aqua arobics which I really enjoyed but my digestion is still too unpredictable to be in a public pool. I have chronic tendonitis in both aquilles so most machines at a health club are not possible. But that leaves me with the exercise I love best anyway. WALKING!!!! It's cheap. I can take these two legs anywhere and do it anytime when my body allows it.
Ok with that decided, I need a goal. I tend to obsess over things so I don't want to go nuts here. Instead of planning on doing these competative walks and runs, I am going to choose to take part in some volkswalks. It's not a race and people can start anytime during the day of the event. (good for my "digestion") But gives me a reason to lace up my shoes and either get on the treadmill or get outside, which I prefer. So 1st assignment dear blog......keep me accountable for regular exercise. By the way, when I am more healed I would like to try a Yoga class. Anyway, I will let you know how my walk goes today,
