I am working a plan to get my mojo back.
Still recovering from two radiation treatments with more treatments on the horizon, I’m still a woman of little energy. The Health Plex associated with Presbyterian Hospital Systems here in ABQ offers a 10 week cancer rehabilitation program called Thrive.
I decided that it was just what I needed. On my last visit to my endocrinologist, I did persuade her to sign off on the program. I paid my $90 and submitted my paperwork. Fairly quickly I had an appointment with an exercise specialist for an evaluation. Vitals, O2 sat, balance, body fat, weight(ugh!) and all those important numbers to see where my fitness level stood.
The next day I was started on a plan with several exercise machines.
The routine is to check in and have my blood pressure, O2 sat and well being checked. On Tuesday and Thursday I work the machines supervised. Pulse rate is checked between machines. BP and sat are checked when I am done.
Monday I go to a special exercise class that covers every part of my body but is doable in my condition. Wednesday I go to an aerobics class which is geared to my level. On Friday I go to a Zumba class. I was encourages to go for the second 30 minutes. Fun. Next time I tried the hour but it was way too much. Will go back to the 30 minutes next week.
I have completed two weeks. My mind is happier that I am doing something to help myself. I feel the inkling of the old me in my bones. There is hope. MOJO rising!
