Remember that 2006 Wendy's chicken commercial- parts is parts? It came back to my mind yesterday and caused me to realize that for the last six months I have been focusing on my hip and leg and pretty much ignoring other body parts.
Realizing it had been months since I used an upper body exercise machine I wrote a check and paid for a years membership in the fitness room of our family center. Where else am I going to have the use of any machine for as long as I choose to use it for $25 a year?
The first thing I noticed was the addition of a couple of new machines. One that caught my eye was a really nice exercise bike with a very comfortable seat. I had to try it out. I could have stayed on it all day. I eventually moved on to the upper body machines I had used before my surgery. It felt like I had come home.
Even though I will still continue doing my hip/lumbar routine every morning I am really happy with my decision to move on with an exercise plan.
After all parts is parts and they all make up my whole.
