Happy New Year everyone! Sorry I haven’t been around at all except to answer some quick emails. Honestly, first I went to my mom’s in BC over Christmas as my children were with their dad and staying home alone was far too depressing. In order to keep working out, because I was loving it so much, I convinced her she needed to get a Wii & Wii Fit Plus for herself. (I bought it for her and she paid me back, she recently had knee surgery and does not get around very well yet and it is cheaper where I live as we have no local sales tax). I also picked up EA Active Sports for me J.
Of the 5 days I was away from home, 2 of them were spent getting there and getting home. However, for the 3 days I was there I got in three good workouts! Yay! Even on Christmas Day! Let me tell you EA Active is awesome although I definitely recommend you start at beginner unless you are in really good shape already. Anyway, once I got home and started to settle in a chain of events occurred and I have yet to work out again. I intended to start back up last Monday, then Wednesday when boys went back to school, then yesterday, trying to get back into routines and all that. Well, it seems I have some sort of breathing problem (part of the chain of events in days prior) that may (or may not) be walking pneumonia (based on what I’ve told friends, I had never heard of it), and every time I engage in physical activity no matter how light I end up with severe shortness of breath. Yesterday I shovelled snow off my deck in three, 15-minute spurts, as well as quite a bit of physical house cleaning, and by 5:00 PM, I was completely exhausted.
