Diet and exercise plan #07: 31/08/18

Every Friday I am hoping to be able to write out my exercise levels from the week before and perhaps any relevant comments about my diet. I will measure myself every four weeks and wait until my November hospital appointment to be weighed.

Well, this week has been spectacularly unsuccessful on the exercise front! I have been too ill to walk anywhere and have spent most of each day in bed, apart from a few hours watching TV or doing a little housework. This is hitting me hard and I feel very low, but I have to pull myself up and try to remain cheerful. I will try!

Exercise last week

Saturday 25/08/18:

  • Felt ill all day and stayed in bed.

Sunday 26/08/18:

  • Ill all day and spent most of it in bed.

Monday 27/08/18:

  • Bad coughing and choking in the night. Kept being woken up by coughing.
  • Very weak and ill all day.

Tuesday 28/08/18:

  • Woke up feeling stronger. Went for a walk around the block. Unfortunately, had to slow down as I was struggling with breathing and pain in left ankle.
  • On arriving home, I had to sit down for quite a while as I was wheezing badly.
  • LH has recommended that I avoid exercise for a while until he thinks I am well enough to resume.

Wednesday 29/08/18

  • In bed all day.

Thursday 30/08/18:

  • In bed most of the day apart from a couple of hours downstairs.

Friday 31/08/18:

  • In bed all day. Managed a couple of household tasks.

One good thing is that I can report that I have kept to my diet. Apart from a meal cooked for me by Elder Son, which was a bit too high in fat, I have not strayed from my original plan. So I can at least take some comfort from that. Even if I don’t manage to lose any weight, I can try to avoid gaining any, I hope.

Anyway, I will post my next update on Friday.

Best wishes,
