I love new beginnings. Went to church this morning and the whole service was about the new year being a time of new beginnings and new life. "Behold the old has passed away and I make everything new." I felt like it was meant just for me because this year will bring a whole new way of life for me. I've resolved to walk EVERY DAY instead of just on the days I don't Jazzercise.
I'll also do my yoga strength training EVERY DAY BEFORE BREAKFAST. 2011 brings several changes, because in March we'll put the house up for sale and move to a retirement village, but I won't let that make any difference in my fitness routines or logging in to Sparkpeople EVERY DAY. HAPPY NEW YEAR AND HAPPY NEW LIFE FOR ALL MY SPARKBUDDIES!

  I love your positive attitude on life. You will find plenty to do in a retirement village. I am 78 and trying to rev up my exercise routine. You have motivated me to do my yoga and walking more often. It is said that life begins at 40 - I believe it begins at 70. emoticon

When I went to my doctor last Wednesday, he put me on tetracycline twice a day for ten days.
By Saturday, I had quit coughing and now feel like a new person. My x-ray showed I had no pneumonia and just a slight over-expansion of the lungs, possibly due to asthma. I'm now using an inhaler for that and plan to get back to my 2 mi. walk every other day. Thanks so much for your encouragement and prayers for my recovery. God is good!

    It is so good to hear you are doing well. It just shows that no matter what our age, taking care of ourselves keeps life beautiful.

    Thanks for the good report Peggy.
Just a word to the wise: When you go for your walk, use your puffer before starting out especially if you are doing any inclines or walking in dampish weather.
I learned when I first moved to B.C. and was getting used to the climbing I had to use the puffers. Now I seem to be OK.
Keep getting better.

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.
