My very slow jog

Sunday, February 02, 2014

I finally worked up the courage to go out for a jog.

What a bad day to be brave.

COLD, windy, freezing rain.

I went out to the golf course. Surely no one in their right mind would be out there golfing.

I took a lot of short cuts across the course making the run only two miles.

Too long.

I am exhausted.

But I made it and my heart is beating at a normal pace.

No more heart problems.

Friday, January 31, 2014

After several months of heart problems, the doctor finally fixed my electrical system.

Today was the first day I went all out at the gym. Strike class! A combination of kick boxing and athletic drills with a weighted 6 pound pole.

I stopped several times during the class just to make sure my heart beat would return to the normal rhythm.

Success.

I do believe I have a healthy well behaved heart.

I think I will try running tomorrow.

First run

Sunday, December 29, 2013

My first run in a month.

I got up early and ran the golf course. Nine holes, not eighteen.

emoticon

My first run in a month.

From the house, I start off uphill. I think if I can do this first hill, that would be great start.

emoticon

I did it. I am on the golf course now. Downhill.

emoticon

Doing great. Ninth hole coming up. And it is all uphill.

emoticon

I did it!!!! Slow, but I did it!!!

My first run in a month!

Texas Roadhouse

Saturday, December 28, 2013

My son who is visiting from Boston went to the gym with me this morning.

We took a step class. I love that class because you have to use your brain to think what comes next and the time goes by fast.

I struggle with some of the moves and it takes me forever to learn a routine. My son, on his very first class out-stepped me. Then he went for a swim.

We went to lunch after class to the Texas Roadhouse.

I had a chicken salad with no eggs or bacon and very little salad dressing. Very good choice. About 400 calories. Good me.

But then I also had two rolls. Over 450 calories. Bad me.

But I can still stay under my goal calories if I eat light for dinner. I can do this.

    The disadvantage of getting older is the moves come slower. Your son will be there one day. Glad you had the time with him.

    As long as you are learning as you go, you are
still ahead of me. Glad you had a good time
with your son and you didn't do too bad with lunch.
Just skip the rolls or only have one the next time
you go. HUGS!

    My husband and I just ate at Texas Roadhouse. I had two rolls the last time I was there and then looked up the calorie count. I couldn't believe one roll has 227 calories. So this time I only had one. I had the roasted chicken. Not too bad! I went running today so I had enough calories to eat.

I am glad you had fun today with your son. Keep up the good work.

Day 1

Monday, December 02, 2013

Last year I entered into a 90 day weight loss challenge and won.

I am back to where I was last year. I am a statistic. I am one of those people who lose weight and then just gain it right back.

Today is the beginning of yet another healthy life time change. Not 90 days. A whole lifetime of change.
