This is my last week of exercise restriction! YAY!!

I'm at the point where I really miss exercise but the idea of starting again terrifies me. Will I be able to forward fold in yoga? Will I be able to raise my arms in Tai Chi? And Pilates?! I have to roll on my side to get out of bed still and Pilates is like ALL abdomen. How will that work?! And the idea of running and the bouncing?? AAAAAAAAAAH.

So.. yeah. I'm scared.

So happy that you can go back to exercising. I am only give one advice that is always given to me by my trainer. Listen to your body. It will let you know what you can handle. Let me know how it goes

Thanks. Had a blast in Jamaica. Felt it tonight at fencing -- my timing was off, I was sucking wind chasing opponents down the strip and couldn't commit to finishing moves. But it was great to be back on the strip. A bad night on the strip is better than no fencing at all!

Keep on losing!
