Exercise Fase 3

Mar 26, 2011 - 0 comments

My 2nd month mark since receiving my kidney transplant was March 14th, and I have added more exercise regimen. I signed up for Jillian Michaels - America's Toughest Trainer on-line training, to help develop my strength, muscle mass, tiny bit of weight loss and better eating habits. I am up to 3.5 to 4 miles on the bike, a bit of Circuit Training and walking. My regimen is for 1 day of Cardio, 4 days of Circuit Training & 2 Days of rest, plus 4 healthy meals a day, including a snack! I feel amazing already!

Since Feb. 26th, I've incorporated occasional bike riding into my exercise regimen. I've made a conscious effort to reduce my calorie intake, drink plenty of fluids, and exercise a bit more (as much as approved by my transplant doctors). I am excited and can't wait to be able to do dance workout with Zumba Fitness on my Wii. Getting back in shape and being fit is extremely important to me and my health.

light exercise



I've been walking for 25 minutes after dinner every day since I came home from the hospital. This is all the exercise I am allowed to do as per my transplant team of doctors. As soon as my scar heals completely and I am doing really well, I will get the go ahead to add more fitness.

Today was my first attempt at "real" exercise after my 6th week of kidney transplant surgery. I cycled on my Schwinn for 1.1 miles/5 min. 25 seconds! Really exhausting and I will not be doing it every day (not quite ready for it yet), maybe just a couple of rides around the block for now will have to do.

Exciting Day

Today is my first month anniversary since my kidney transplant surgery! I've been home and almost fully recovered. I can't wait until I can drive again, but more so, I can't wait until I can get some exercise! Just before my transplant surgery I had bought myself a Wii and the Zumba dance workout game!
