Because of the incision around my rib cage, it's difficult to breathe. Each breath is painful, so I take small breaths. I am sick of this, so I just went for a walk somewhere between 1.25 and 1.5 miles. Man, was that hard! My feet are swollen and numb due to the water weight and my hips hurt on each stride due to the water weight, also. Painful fat is so weird!
I'm giving myself until the weekend to build back up to my 3-mile route around the neighborhood. I can't stand this and exercise seems to be the only way to fix it.
