as people who've been following my blog/811 experiment over the last weeks may know, i'm currently recovering from a bad bout of CFS/ME/chronic fatigue. things are generally going well (yay!).
my starting point a couple of months ago was that i spent the winter either bed bound or wheelchair bound, barely able to weightbear. this has resulted in a massive loss of fitness, muscle tone etc.
and before then, i wasn't exactly fit!
i've started bouncing on the trampoline where i live, as a start to a fitness routine. and i'm managing to walk and garden most days (with lots of resting). i've managed to drop my body fat percentage from 27.7% last tuesday to 26.5% today (a week), so there is movement in my muscle building (i'm sooo happy).
i'm just really looking for SIMPLE advice as to how to start an exercise programme. i'm clueless about the types (cardio? weights?), and need to build up GRADUALLY. i live rurally and don't have access to a gym, but lots of countryside.
so to those fitness buffs out there, how should i start? are there good websites to look at? how should i track my progress? is there a good simple book you'd recommend? assume i know nothing! its been sooo long since i've had the capability to even start thinking about this. i'm very excited!
