You know being stuck at home due to illness can really make you get out of shape fast. I’ve been feeling so awful for the past two months that I really haven’t done much of anything.
When I work in my garden, wow, I really feel it. I don’t think there’s been a time this summer when I’ve worked in the garden and haven’t come in with a sore back.
I need to get back into shape! I’ve lost muscle tone – that’s for sure. Lately I’ve been thinking that I should buy one of those treadmill machines. It’s going to be cold here soon and bad weather will follow. I couldn’t convince myself to get outside as much as I should in the summer so I doubt it will change in the winter time. That’s why I think some form of exercise machine might be in order. Maybe I’ll even try something like muscle milk to speed up the process of getting back into shape. Maybe.
To make matters worse my doctors talking about putting me on prednisone soon. Almost everyone I know that’s been on steroids ends up gaining weight. I’m at a good weight right now, but if I go on steroids I’ll probably bloat up and gain weight. Great. Inactive, out of shape and facing weight gain? Bad news!
