working out.

So because of my spinal cord syrinx, spinal stenosis, and oseophytes in my cervical and lumbar vertibrae I was told no exertion, no lifting, no running, bouncing, jumping etc.

I am supposedly getting surgery soon and am hoping I will be at least allowed to ride my bike.  I wanted to be able to run again, but doc said "not gonna happen"

So now I am saving up for a recumbent bike for inside. I am also going to start doing at least 20 minutes of stretching each morning.  Doc said crunches, slow exercise like Tai Chi and pilates was ok for 20 minutes.

I need to do something, I do not want to become my mother and being worried about my health and weight makes me crave sugar.
