I have been stopped before starting my gym appointments. I managed to tear 2 ligaments in my left foot. It is an old injury acting up. I now have to wait 2 weeks to start my exercise program — bummer.

I completed my first round of fitness evaluation with the Kinesiologist the other day. I learned how to use the various torture machines they have in their gym. My foot is still bothering me so we had to keep it short, but her evaluation was the same. I was fat and out of shape; or words to that effect.
My objective is to start at 2 days a week, then move up to three when my foot has had a chance to heal. Overall I did enjoy the machines since they do a lot of the work for you. The only one I didn’t like was the exercise bicycle because I could not find a comfortable position on the seat. A common occurrence I have been told.
I go in again next Tuesday. I will still be full of turkey. That should be fun.

Well I had my first meeting with the Nurse yesterday. With my Doctor’s blessings, I have joined the Get Fit program. I start by having to offer up myself up to weights, measurements, blood tests, and cardio tests.
Yesterday were meetings with the Nurse, Nutritionist, and Kinesiologist. That was a barrel of laughs. One to question me, one to make me feel guilty about what I am eating, and one to torture me on the fitness equipment. Fun wow. But, I have brought this down on myself for my own good. My Doctor will be happy.
I will keep you posted as this goes along.
