Ups and Downs: Exercise up weight down and cr*p I have hernias

Saturday, June 22, 2019

I haven't blogged for a while. I have finally cracked my exercise aversion and have become addicted to exercise instead! This is something I never thought I would happen to me.

I managed to get my pulled quad recovered and over the past 2 months have gradually increased my exercise to the point I am doing Les Mills body pump 2x per week, body combat x2 per week, 30min on elliptical 2x per week and one day flexibility.

I am loving it, as soon as one workout is over I am planning the next day's exercise. My pain levels are down, energy is up. I discovered using my resting heart rate to tell me if I need a rest day has decreased my injury niggles.

The scales showed no change for weeks but just in the last couple of weeks I have started loosing again, I realized I needed to up my protein for the activities I was doing and it worked.

Now for the downer...I have hernias. More than one.

Dr told me as long as I keep breathing through my exercises and no heavy lifting I can still workout. At least that's a plus. But he thinks they probably will operate as I am young and fit.

Gutted about facing another operation which has quite a long recovery time but part of me is going "Yay doc called me young and fit!"

Maybe they can remove some of my excess skin and give me a tummy tuck as well...here's to hoping :)

    @slimmerjesse I think I have had the umbilical one for years and just with losing the weight is noticeable. My youngest was a very big baby so I may have had some weakness between my ab muscles that may have caused the second.
