Well, I have a little less than 2 months before we go to Vero Beach for our vacation....I'd really like to tone up my trouble spots, namely the thighs and arms. This is the first time I have willingly wanted and planned a trip to a sunny location that would demand a wearing of the dreaded bathing suit. I am really looking forward to it! Talk about progress! Over the past 5 months or so, with the holidays and the switching of my meds, I have gained about 10 pounds or so... to be expected, but the difference is I am paying attention and am working to change that right away, not just sit and let it continue to happen. So I have started being more active, today I did 15 minutes cardio boxing with weighted gloves, and 5 min intense step aerobics. Followed by a few stomach exercises... I am going to really worry about my workouts, and not freak out on the food, although passing Starbucks up is on the agenda. Later I may convince my daughter to go fo a jog. Over all, things are going okay, adjusted to my new meds, although my hair is still falling out...trying not to let that get to me, starting just to accept that is part of all the fun of seizure meds....among other things....gosh, I am full of sarcasm this morning...oh well. Tomorrow, its time for kettle bells...which I love. 20 minutes= good cardio and weight workout....love it! Time to hit the shower!
