My Journey Back to Two Shoes

2 Shoes and Walking

I am officially FWB and walking in two shoes! It is very exciting! When I put the shoe on this morning I was expecting the angels to sing. No angels sang for me, but I had an amazing day walking in two shoes.

As I make this next transition post-surgery I think a lot about my physical health. Specifically exercise. I know that my calf muscle is fairly non-existent post surgery. There isn’t a ton of strength. I want to get my strength back. And I want my shapely calf muscle back. I want to strengthen and stretch my Achilles tendon so that I don’t have to fret about re-injury. And I want to get rid of the slight limp.

I did join the YMCA here in Maryland. I am working on cardio as well as strength exercises for my calves. I want to use wisdom as I exercise. I will be walking as well. My biggest concern is I tend to have more desire to exercise then I do time. Any suggestions? I know I need to exercise and I want to exercise, but my days and weeks usually blend into one another. I rarely take a moment for myself. One thing I am trying to do is to look at one day at a time. Rather then making a huge commitment to exercise I have decided to take one day at a time. Make time each day to stop my world and exercise. Help…saying it is one thing, doing it is another story…
