So, I'm on an exercise kick, but am trying to be balanced and kind to my body. When I first was able to start walking again, I started gradually increasing it to every day, and majorly decreasing my other workouts (atationary bike, leg lifts with weights, crunches). However, I'm finding that going for walks every day is still pretty taxing on my ankle and I tend to not want to do anything else/be out of commission. Also, though it hurts my ankle, it's not much of a challenge physically, if ya know what I mean. It ain't gonna get rid of many of my jiggles.
So, here's my new plan. I love walking. I love moving in the fresh air, watching the doggie run around in freedom, being one with nature. I'll go for a good walk one-day, then do my at-home work-out the next, and so on. I hope I'm not setting myself up for failure by planning some form of exercise every day? I hope that I'm kind enough to myself that if I am flaring, it's okay to just chill out at home for one day and not quit totally. I hope.
