New Workout Record!

I beat my record of exercise and I have finished my first month of treatment! 🙂 I can’t believe the progress I have made!

Today I did my 34 minutes of exercise that is on my exercise protocol!

That is 17 Recumbent Bike & 17 Rowing Machine !

After my required protocol was complete I was not feeling tired at all so with the help of my dad I tried various other machines for core, arms, legs etc…

That led to 23 extra minutes !

So my total exercise at the Gym today was 57 Minutes!  I haven’t been able to exercise to that degree with that high of a success rate! I did not experience any symptoms and exercised long enough for the endorphins to kick in! 

One MONTH ago exactly I started treatment! Before this I could not workout in a gym, because I was too fatigued to make the trip. Working out at home was hard as well because I would become symptomatic with any type of exercise. Never give up hope! I have made incredible progress! I never would have thought in a million years that I would be able to do this much exercise on a regular basis.

This is the third day in a row that I have gone to the gym and completed my required workout! Monday 30, Tuesday 32  & Today 34 + bonus 23 minutes!

I haven’t had three days of exercise consistency in probably my entire life! It feels amazing! A big shout out and thank you to the POTS Treatment Center for giving me the tools and training to heal my body! Thank you to everybody who has helped me along this journey! You are all gems!

Well thats all for now. Talk to you all soon!
