Trying to Get Back to Normal

Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Went back to my doctor hoping I'd be over this cough by now, but disappointed to find I'm not well yet. I did go to Jazzercise , feeling great and enjoying every minute, but toward the end of the hour started coughing and continued all through my doctor's appointment, so had to go get a chest x-ray to see if I have pneumonia. The big surprise was when I got on the doctor's scale and found that according to his scale, I have lost two pounds since last Friday. I'll do my weekly weigh-in on my scale tomorrow morning and see what it says. Evidently the prednisone is not increasing my appetite as I was afraid it would. I'll be finished with it Saturday and hope I'll soon be back to normal.

    Hi Peggy,
I will certainly pray again the pneumonia. I don't wish that on anyone after having it twice.
May God give you strength and good health.
Maybe lay low on certain exercises until you find out what the problem is. If it is a breathing problem exercise can trigger an asthmatic type of reaction.
May you be back to your chipper self real soon.

    Doctors seem to like to see the scale go down, don't they? Get well soon.

Roadblock on the Fitness Road

Saturday, December 11, 2010

My fitness routine has been pretty standard for the last 3 years: 30 min. yoga every morning, 1 hr. Jazzercise 3 days a week, walking 2 mi. 3 days a week. So far it's enabled me to stay at my goal as long as I stick to logging in my food and exercise every day on Sparkpeople and staying within my calorie range consistently. However, I've run into a roadblock on my fitness routine.
I've had bronchitis and asthma for several weeks now and have been unable to get out in the col d weather for my walk and have had to miss Jazzercise one day so far. I'm taking a steroid for my asthma which the doctor says may increase my appetite. I'll really have to be extra careful not to overeat and try to get in more exercise inside to make up for not being able to walk outside. So far, I'm able to do my yoga each day and hope to get back to Jazzercise next week.
I don't plan to let this roadblock keep me from maintaining my fitness level. Sparkpeople is more important than ever to help me stay on my journey.


My Best Buddy

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

My husband is my best friend and buddy. He helps me in so many ways, I can hardly count them but I'll try: (1) He finds low calorie, low-fat recipes and helps me make them.
(2) He encourages me to keep up my exercise and drives me to Jazzercise.
(3) He goes on walks with me in the neighborhood or at the mall.
(4) He gives me gifts that are associated with exercise, like yoga pants.
(5) When we eat out, he helps me pick out low-salt,low fat low calorie meals.
(6) He has a great sense of humor and keeps me laughing (great exercise).
(7) He has loved me for 60 years. emoticon

October's Bright Blue Weather

Tuesday, October 05, 2010

Today's a gorgeous day in East Tennessee. The sky's a brilliant blue, the sun's shining bright,
it's 50 degrees and the trees are turning color. The beauty of the day inspired me to add 10 minutes to my usual 30 min. walk. My longer route brought me a pleasant encounter with neighbors I hadn't seen recently and they offered me home-grown tomatoes from their garden.
Isn't it wonderful how small changes in a healthy habit can bring great benefits? Just adding 10 minutes to my walk helped me burn more calories, add more steps on my pedometer, and get the added benefit of free fresh tomatoes for my supper. What small change can you make in a healthy habit that might bring you great benefits?
