16 April - 18 April, 2012
So now coming to the good news - I got three consecutive days of exercising and I feel pretty good about that!
On Monday, I went to the gym (which has now reopened post the renovation) and did 20 minutes of cycling. It's very little exercise under normal circumstances but in my current circumstances, it was a lot. It made me feel a lot better and was definitely the highlight of the day.
On Tuesday, the hubby accompanied for a swim and it was one of the best swims I've ever had! I realized that whenever I am in the process of swimming I can breathe a lot more easily and I don't feel nauseous at all, which was such a welcome change! Sure, the feeling doesn't last when I surface from the water, but even then it was awesome. I enjoyed it thoroughly and most importantly I was over my fear of hitting the water again!
On Wednesday, I went back to the gym and this time I did 20 minutes of cycling and 15 minutes of brisk walking on the treadmill which, as you can see, is already a significant improvement from Monday. So that made me feel a lot better too!
So I guess it is steady progress, albeit being very slow. The nausea and throwing up continues in spite of the exercise but I feel slightly more useful and productive than before.
