Rowing is a moderate yet enjoyable group exercise!
Not so long after I had my gastric bypass surgery, my husband and I went on a day trip to Boat House Row in Philadelphia . The boat houses were filled with the shells that the rowers practiced and competed in. We watched practice runs that were taking place on the river, and I was impressed by the long, thin shells being pushed by the rhythm of the rowers.

I admit my job is stressful and I'm recently married. Is it okay to be taking pain relievers for 10 days in a row? Christie.
