It's another nice day here in So. Calif. Not supposed to get too hot yet, but the heat is coming.
Weight is holding at my lower rate - about the 4th day in a row. I had a little cup of ice cream yesterday and think it kicked my butt. Live and learn. So this morning, I woke up in the middle of the night and had to move to my recliner to sleep some more. I'm trying to keep the calories in the 1400-1500 range, but I went over about 50 yesterday.
But I got on the treadmill for the first time in a long time and walked 10 minutes - that is double what I've been doing when I walk around the library. I turned on Judge Judy and diverted my attention from the effort it took to walk. Didn't walk very fast but I kept it up. I had a glitch in my side when I got done, but it went away. Not sure what it was, but I don't think it had anything to do with my heart. I plan to do it again this afternoon.
Today, I am going to see the holistic doctor for some acupuncture and back adjustments and I should feel so much better. He has one chair in the acupuncture room that is sooo comfortable - I wish I owned one like it. I sleep like a log when I am in it - but if the room is crowded, I have to resort to what is available.
Debating about change my cable from AT&T to DirectTV. I even placed an order - it would save me about $30/month, but my son thinks this isn't a smart move as I have no problems with AT&T - it just costs too much. So, I have 2 days to cancel - not sure which is the right way to go. They want to tie me into a 2 year contract and there is a penalty if I have to move and cancel the service before the 2 years is up. So, that may not be a smart move in the long run. Plus Direct tv doesn't offer internet service and I would have to stay with AT&T which is not that cheap. Oh well. I'll figure it out.
