Day 7: Reading a book SLOW, FAT TRIATHLETE
Saturday, March 16, 2013
I just bought SLOW, FAT TRIATHLETE by Jayne Williams.
One thing I realized years ago is that thinness and fitness do not necessarily go hand-in-hand. Plenty of normal weight people do not eat right, don't exercise enough, are stressed out and are not in good health.
Anyway, during a conversation with a neighbor about this subject, this book was recommended to me. I just started it, so it's too soon for a review, but so far, it's looking good. It's basically about a heavier woman who is a triathelete.
On the home front, we bought a n/used car today so I am THRILLED to be mobile again. We are three miles from the beach where there is a board walk with beautiful ocean views, If you walk out to the point and back it's three miles--something to work up to.
And 90% is a flat, even walkway, making it easier for someone who hasn't been walking for awhile. My neighborhood is extremely hilly and impossible for me to do at this point. So now that I have wheels again, I can go to the boardwalk anytime I want! Yippeeee!
So, new car, a lot more work around the house, and another day that I stayed on my food plan and drank enough water. I've also been tracking my blood pressure and that, slowly but surely, seems to be going down.
Thank you to everyone for your support!
