I am making a plan!!!

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I want to thank all of you that sent such encouraging really meant the world to me. I go to Planet Fitness on Tuesday to have them show me the list of class times where they will show you how to do certain things. My sparkpeople dvd's came today in the mail and I dug out my leslie sansone walking dvd's so if I don't feel like leaving the house I have no excuse to not getting my butt off the couch. I also called today and switched to a different doctor, she is a woman in family medicine. I can't get into seeing her until March 28 but I have already made a list of things I want to discuss with her. I started going thru my pantry and getting it organized so I can find stuff. Also looking at different web sites to figure out what should be in the pantry all the time to put a meal together instead of eating fast food when I don't feel like cooking. I did some shopping this weekend and found a bike I am thinking about getting for this spring, I used to go biking a lot and with us raising our soon to be 13 granddaughter we could go biking together. I know it felt good to get out of the house for a bit. I take my 82 year old mother shopping once a week since she got rid of her car. She uses a rolling walker and walks very slow. I am afraid of ending up like her. I was always so independant before I retired. Well..enough of this I am going to put a dvd in and see what I can do. Thank you again so much!!!!!

    So glad you were encouraged by all the comments. Sounds like you are making good choices. I am so glad that you have an appt with a different doc.

I have Leslie Sansone too and always enjoy doing even just half a mile with her. emoticon emoticon

I started exploring outside exercise on a bike, too. My DH was so patient with me in the begining, when I could only ride a flat 3 mile loop. We kept at it and now I really enjoy our weekly bike rides. Life is for living, not sitting on the couch being afraid (like I used to be). Have fun with your DVD.
