|My youngest, almost three years ago.|
I'm still getting over the cold that started last week. I didn't sleep well most of the week so now I feel worn down although I have gotten lots of sleep the last two nights. I have a bunch of reviews to get caught up on but I did get a lot of reading time in.
I slacked off on my tummy exercises while I wasn't feeling well and have to build back up to doing all of the reps and the floor exercise. My tummy did shrink but that may be because of my diet change. I cut out fruit and winter squash and am trying to keep my almond consumption to two servings a day. Some evenings my tummy looks flatter. It's hard to tell what is going on. I do notice I feel better and stronger when I do the exercises.

I still can't do much garden work or my upper back and side spazzes out. I used a pitchfork one day to loosen soil in a small area and that night I woke up with muscle spasms. It's really frustrating not to be able to do what I want and need to do. I'm trying to be patient!
|Because I'll want another one to snuggle.|
I have started doing some body weight strength exercises very carefully. I want to get strong again! I am doing push ups against the wall, plies, squats, and using dumbbells. If I can't hold my tummy in while I do an exercise I am not supposed to do it. I'm still experimenting to see what I can do. I also need to start walking again now that I'm feeling better. I try to hold my tummy in the whole time and that gives me a nice ab workout. This process seems so slow but I'm not giving up!
