I have been trying to gain weight all over. Especially since loosing weight internally on my organs.
I did that once before when very stressed out for a long period of time. This time there were any number of stress-related situations over the last three years.
My dr wasn't any help.. luckily I came to my senses and realized what was happening.
I made some changes and one was my meal content.
I am eating much better and and putting weight on internally. Which is a very slow processes. Mentally and emotionally I am back to normal once again.
But now I need to work on my core muscles. My walking but not eating was a very bad combination.
Thankfully I am maintaining my current weight. Thats not a good think at 125 lbs. So I am concentrating on an exercise that will build up my strength in my core muscles, legs & thighs.
I discovered the Windshield Wiper on line. And am hopefully it will build back up what muscle I've lost.
The problem is Charlie who never "plays" with me inside or out. Well, it seems he finally wants to play with me when I am lying on the floor exercising.
I'm talking, in my face licking, gnawing on my arms, legs. Standing on top of me - he's close to 70 lbs - yikes!
Lying on the floor is not a good position for dealing with a dog who finally has decided I am in the perfect position to be his toy.
It takes me 10 to 15 minutes to turn over as I have a bum right knee that won't take my weight.
Charlie, in the mean time, is licking, gnawing, sitting or standing on top of me. It takes another 5 or so minutes to get half way up.
Holding on to his collars is almost futile. But gradually I pin him to the floor. But then I no longer have a hand with which to grab ahold of a chair, table, anything I can use to pull my self upright with.
I tried sitting on the floor, but he just pushes me back down on my back.
Finally I make my way up and hold on to the fridge. I inch my way to his dog biscuits, toss one on the floor and make my escape.
I don't think exercising on the floor will work. Maybe jumping rope and dumb bells outside will.
That means more lattice panels for the chainlink fence. 8-( dang it!!!
