Coming this Friday I will be moving. not the first time probably not the last time. But this move is a first for me I will be getting a place and living there alone. It is exciting and scary I have never lived alone. I have lived with husbands, children and parents my whole live and now I will be doing something new. I found a nice studio apartment that is with in my income range it will be tight but I must be careful but i will be able to make it.
Yesterday I set up the truck so that i can take my things to the new place, set up my internet and tv package most of my things are packed. I am ready as i can be for this move.
The beginning of this winter my children told me they no longer wanted me in their apartment that they were moving to a smaller place and i would have to find my own place. I was devastated, I cried, then I started saving money, I am almost 60 to old to start living on the street I was so scared, I would never have enough money in time. I managed to save a little, but living on a tight budget doesnt leave a lot of extra cash for saving. I made some changes, saved some more, then my friend gave me enough money to make it work. so I made it not alone, but with the help of my dear friend. Now the time is getting closer for some reason the fear has left mostly I am excited and am looking forward to this new chapter in my life. After all most people experience living on their own as teenagers. I think i am ready, I am gonna do this. I will not have internet for about a week.

Cant exercise until after i see the doctor Monday morning, hopefully she will release me. Turns out that the heart can't exercise if oxygen levels are low. Though that was my only symptom turns out I had some kind of pneumonia, Am doing much better now doing some walking, slowly, but better than none until i get clearance to go back to work. Got to get my rest, just wanted everyone to know i didn't quit just got slowed down a bit.

Not my best day, couldn't do treadmill today i tried 3 times for a total of 10 minutes, but my heart rate kept soaring to around 165 and 170. Not sure whats going on so i switched it up today. I did 6 strength training machines 3 sets of 10 each. did 30 minutes on Exercycle, only 10 minutes on the tread mill and of course almost 4 minutes on the Elliptical. My legs hurt like hell, but i did get around 30 minutes in today. so i didn't loose a day. Just not what I planned.

I tried not to go to the gym today, I had some good excuses, but I went, and it was fun.
I did about 6 minutes on the elliptical which is a personal best, hopefully I will soon beat the fear and stay on for more time, but for now I am happy with small improvements. Rode Exercycle for 10 minutes and then walked the treadmill for 35 including cool down. At one point my heart rate was up to 160 and i got dizzy so i had to slow down. ended up keeping heart rate at 140 for 20 minutes.
I don't know why I keep trying to talk my self out of going. I enjoy working out once i start and feel fantastic after I finish. I already have registered over 5,000 steps on my fit bit and I still have to go to work.
Have a great day and thanks for listening.

Today was my rest day, I went to the spa with my boyfriend and we spent an hour in the pool, then steam room. ran around the place. Being as i was around water I didn't wear my fit bit, so I am not sure how many actual steps I took. The important thing is that on my day off I didn't sleep, sit and watch TV or eat. I ran around and was as active as possible. One of the goals I have set for myself is to make sure i am active. not always at top speed, but moving, even a walk ever so often around courtyard so i don't get stiff and lazy
