Itís not likely Iíll have time to get my body toned and fit before my doctor appointment next week. Iím sort of resigned to being all lumpy for the rest of my life, but I would have liked to make a good impression when I meet him for the first time. If only so that he wouldnít have to mention it, you know? The lumpiness?
Even though itís too late, Iíve finally put myself back on a (mild) exercise program, just a few minutes every morning. Itís probably not enough to get me in shape, and definitely not before next Wednesday, but at least Iím finding out what I can still do, and what I canít.
One thing I canít do is push-ups, but I never could do very many of those even when my body was sound (if it ever was). I was never much for sit-ups or stomach crunches, either, but I can still do them as well as I ever could. You could look on that as a good thing, since thatís the area that needs the most work. Iím okay with standing yoga poses, but anything that involves putting weight on my hands, of course, is out. (And there are a lot of such positions.)
