#Fit2Feast challenge - Day 4

Tuesday, November 04, 2014

No walking today due to the knee acting up. So 31 minutes on the recumbent bike, although my SPAT recorded it as 29 minutes of "unspecified even" for 17 calories burned.

30 minutes on the elliptical to start day 1. emoticon

A little disappointed that my SPAT recorded it as "general exercise" for 12 calories burned. Huh? emoticon

4 Years

Thursday, October 09, 2014

Today is my 4 year anniversary on Spark. It's been a rewarding, frustrating, enlightening, fun, tough, hopeful, and often disappointing journey. I've been super active, sorta active, sometime totally inactive on the site. But I'm still here. Still determined to win this battle. Sadly I've gained most of the weight back. There are multiple reasons for that. Some justifiable, some not. As I'm facing my 6oth birthday next year, I want to get there as healthy and fit as possible. So today I recommit to the journey. I can't do the things I could do 4 years ago. Knee replacement surgery is looming in my future. I want to put that off as long as possible. So I'm going back to the basics and trying to find new ways to do things. I will not be defeated. I still have a lot of living to do!! I WILL DO THIS!!

    My sister and I were born on the same day nine years apart. She is the oldest and I see her struggling to climb steps and she sleeps sitting up in a chair or with her head propped up on a pillow, sitting on a sofa. I spent time with her over the weekend and though she does not use salt or buy food with salt in it, she had a procedure and they could not even put a stent in to her kidneys. She has veins to them, but no arteries and her heart has to work much harder to push blood to them through the veins. She has very high blood pressure. She is 71, but it makes me think of what I might face should I live that long. At least, without knowing it, she did herself a favor by not using salt long before this condition was discovered. Her doctor thought he could cure her of the blood pressure problem by putting in a stent to her kidneys.

I am 62, so I am glad you are recommitting to working to being in your best health. I am so obese, it takes me a long time to see any progress.

  Just met someone who had a knee replacement two weeks ago. They had her up and walking in no time!
