Cardiac Rehab #30

Today's output:

25 minutes on the Nu-Step machine.

30 bicep curls

30 lateral arm raises

15 wall push-ups

10 reps on the seated row machine

Boy am I tired - but also proud of myself. When I started rehab in January, I could barely eke out 5 minutes on any machine. A problem remains, though.  I was expected to lose 10-12 pounds during the 36 visits to rehab. As of today, I have gained 3. Yikes.

Muscle weighs more than fat...

So you should be proud of yourself.
I have found whenever I have had an injury which limits my mobility I always gained weight. In spite of the exercises etc one isn't doing one's normal chores.
All will be well as you get back to normal.
