Hitting the ground running

I did start working out regularly. In fact, I've only missed a few days in the past two and a half weeks. I do mostly a lot of intense work on the orbital walker (30 - 45 minutes at 140 strides per minute) to get my heart rate up for a while. Then I do a good bit of stretching before some very light work with barbells and weight machines. My weight is back to where it was before I started on treatment last September. My clothes fit again! My stamina has really improved and I feel well again.

Today is my first day back in the office. I left home extra early to get to the gym early enough to get my workout and stretching taken care of first. The hourlong commute was a snap without any traffic holdups at all. Already this afternoon, I will be having important meetings. Amazing, huh?

Let's see how well the day goes and how much energy I really have left at the end of the day. Wish me luck!

Get Ready! Get Set!

According to all my tests so far, I am having another super speedy recovery. I sure am feeling better.

I suppose a lot of it is because I have kept my expectations pretty conservative. My level of effort has been pretty low too. I have developed extremely high quality couch potato skills! Those are handy when the anti-nausea medicine is working. But now that my overall condition has improved, I have very little nausea. So I am rarely taking that stuff anymore.

No great moves back to the gym yet, but I am thinking tomorrow will be a good day to try.

Thanks to all who send emails and comments!
