Since I had my car accident almost four months ago and haven’t been able to exercise, I’ve gained weight, my clothes are too tight and I feel like a fat slob. Not how someone in the fitness business wants to feel but something that I think we can all relate to; whether it’s because of […]

My Review of Workouts I’ve Both Tried & Used

I’ve been working out with Beachbody workouts for quite a few years and in this video I reviewed all of them that I’ve done – some that have worked for me and some that didn’t. While some of them didn’t work for me, it wasn’t because the workouts weren’t good.  It was because they were […]

Fitness, Restless Leg Syndrome and My Knee Replacement Part V

When I went to my next Physical Therapy appointment with James, he took me over to the stationary bike and I thought – no problem. To me that’s not even much of a workout. I gingerly got on and he knelt down by my right foot and helped me put it on the pedal. He […]

Fitness, Restless Leg Syndrome and My Knee Replacement Part IV

The next two weeks were spent with my Physical Therapist coming to the house three times a week and on the other days I did all the exercises on my own. On her last visit she measured the bend in my knee and I had surpassed her goal for me at 128 degrees. That was […]
