Well, the scale still shows those 6 lbs gone so I guess it's real.
I'm under the recommended daily sodium limit today for the first time! That's the limit for "normal" people, not for us hypertensives, but it's progress and I'm proud of me. I have some calories left for the day and I'm still hungry so I'll be looking for something low sodium. Balancing all this is like putting together a 4-dimensional puzzle (the usual 3 plus time)--quite challenging!
I wrote an email to Ulla Popken this morning asking where the heck my swimsuit is so I can start water walking. I even have a friend who wants to go with me, which will make it much more fun (Tricia is a bundle of fun!). And a standing invite to join another friend at her apartment pool (Hi Janis, wish we lived closer!).
For now, for exercise, I'm choosing not to park in the oh-so-tempting handicapped parking spots & going a little farther out. I have a permit and walking hurts, but I figure I can add 100 steps to my day even if I can't do 10,000. I'm trying to take back a little of the housework my husband took over. I can't push too hard, but if I don't push at all I won't win the prize--a shiny new hip.
