The Winter Eating and Exercise Plan (WEEP) seems to be paying off. I do something every day, alternating between resistance, isometric and rebounder exercises and also change which “bit” of me I work on (broadly upper body, abdominals and legs). Over the last seven weeks, I have:
Gained muscle in my arms, abdomen and back
Got rid of the nagging ache in my left bicep
Got rid of the pain in my right shoulder that I felt when I put my arm behind my back to wash / scratch it.
Reduced my resting heart rate by over 20 beats a minute
Got rid of the numbness in my left foot earlier in the year and substituted burning pain
Got rid of the burning pain in my left foot and substituted normal feeling
In addition, I can run flat out on my rebounder for 1 minute without feeling I’m about to die and I can also do all sorts of horrid exercises on my mini multi-gym without feeling I’m about to die.
I’m going to carry on with it now for as long as I can, even though I have nagging little voice that says it’s ridiculous to be doing this at my age.
