The native relativism of the human condition is what makes it difficult to change.
Behavior and physiological state tend towards the status quo. While that ambient state may have changed gradually over a long period of time, it remains the relative baseline.
However, relativism, can also be the basis for effecting change. Change in small steps, increase the steps as success is accomplished. This is the basis for lasting change. Identify the required steps as you go. Are you exercising? Good. Can you do a little more? Or, can you be more consistent? Plan the steps. Track the steps. Track the change.
* Sleep, Last Night: 8 hours. 2 hours between 1 & 3AM. Didn't get to sleep, again, until 6:30 AM. But slept soundly until 12:30P. Felt great.
* Walking: 65 minutes at slow (my current fastest of three speeds: slow, very slow, and glacial ;-)) at medium difficulty
* Isometric Abs: 40 minutes
* Right Shoulder/Arm Exercises: 4 exercises x 40 reps x 2 sets
* Calorie Budget Adherence, Yesterday: spot on
* Having problems with my feet. The neuropathy prevents me from noticing that I've stubbed my toes. All the walking has exacerbated that. Looks like I'm going to need special shoes.
* I'm up three pounds in weight. I attribute this (I hope) to muscle recovered from all the walking vs the pre- and post- surgery layoffs in weights and cardio. The great news is that I am now walking about ten times as much as I was able to while I was using the recumbent bike, daily. This means may mean the recumbent was badly impacting my back and legs. (It's not clear because of the other exercises I've also stopped doing.)
* I slipped on the bathroom floor, last night, after coming out of the shower. I caught my balance, okay, but I really jerked my right shoulder. It feels better, today, but the two mishaps scare me about damage to the repairs.
