Rehab Progress

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Seems to be getting better did the whole 12 minute reime and still felt good. Hope to move up to 15 minutes. I got in 7000 steps on the Pedometer with adding a ten minute walk during Downton Abbey.

Back from Rehab

Monday, January 07, 2013

Had a great workput that lasted 45 minutes. Walked over 5,000 steps on the TM, weights twice, and stretching. Felt good with a BP rate of 128/62 while on the TM.
hope this keeps up.

Back to Rehab

Monday, January 07, 2013

After several days of feeling badly, suspect Lipitor, and severe lower back pains I am going back to Rehab this morning. i have had a wonderful weekend with finally breaking out of the 190s and posting 189.8 yesterday. Only to pop bavk in this morning at 191. Well I can't say I don't deserve it after sitting too much watching my Colts lose and eating a bit too much even if it was legal food.
Today I will do better.
Meant to mention in my opening Blog, I just celebated my wonderful husband's and my 59th anniversary. We are very blessed with four grown children and four darling Grands, all Grands are from one DS. We live just outside of Indianapolis in a little historic town on the National Registry. I am retired from owning a Restaurant here in the town for 12 years as my final venture in business. Loved every minute of it, well almost. Retired in 1999 so have been busy with Orchid growing, heirloom Tomato growing from seed, knitting , and shopping Costco, Sam's and Aldis. The last seems to be more and more of recreation for DH and me lately.
Well enough for this morning.

    Sorry about the Colts losing, but I hope you had fun watching the game anyway. I AM glad that you are feeling better and able to go to rehab today. Don't worry about a little blip upwards; I am sure that with the changes you have been making and your determination, that number will soon be back below 190! emoticon

The New Me in 2013

Saturday, January 05, 2013

After suffering a heart attack two days before Thanksgiving I decided I had to change some more bad habits. I had one blocked artery at 99% and the other three were relatively good for someone my age...78 years. I have to mainly work on increasing exercise because the foods I have down, just to eat less of them.
