    I am so awe struck that so many took the time to write and leave me an encouraging note--bless each of you!! Thank you --Thank you !!!

I am happy to report day 2- I went to Curves, short yoga session, a 10 minute walk (and that was it--too cold for me to be outside) so I finished with 35 minutes on the elliptical and over 12,000 steps today.

I guess the reality is that we all have had more than one day 1 and it is important to not give up on our-self. This was a tough day for me because I had to commute to the city for a health screening for work--so getting up early and that bus commute just wears me out so I needed a short nap to get me through the rest of the day.

The weather got very cool and it made the outdoor walk difficult as it brought out my cough and made it difficult to breathe--so I just decided to come home and do the elliptical to get my steps in. I tried to do as much walking as possible while I was in town in the building so I could have a good count on the pedometer and I am happy to have a good number on the pedometer.

Once again--thank you for your inspiration to me--- emoticon hugs, Kathleen

  Hi There- You are encouraging. I'm proud of you to be able to get the exercise in even though you have some problems. I'm writing since we are on the same timeline with starting up. Let's talk emoticon

  I'm so glad there are others like me who have a bunch of 1st days. Today is May 24th. Have you had a chance to do your 30 minute walk? Does the walking help your voice or is it too early to tell? I'll bet your puppy loves to go walking with you. I have a 5 monh old puppy that is helping me to walk too! His name is Gus. Don't give up! You can do this. Start with baby steps. I have been on SP for about a week. Struggling a bit , but each day it seems a bit easier!

    You can do it! This is my first day again as well. I just did the 12 min low impact cardio and I am dripping sweat, but it's good sweat! Hang in there, be determined to make this one stick, and know that recovery comes one day at a time. You can do it!

    Hope your health improves. Exercise will only help the situation. A cute sweet dog to walk with you. Even just throwing him balls is good exercise for some muscle groups. It also gets you out in fresh air and nature which always makes me feel better in spirit.

Hope you keep up the vlogs and tell us your progress. Nice to meet you.

    As long as you don't give up, the number of day 1s is not as important. emoticon
