Not really running out of options, I am just unable to choose the options I like. My stationary bike is broken. It 'slips' on one pedal, and the jolt hurts my hip. The plus to the bike is that it is upstairs near the fireplace, in line with the TV. It needs replaced. Strange, with everyone getting snow, we have less than an inch. But, the irony is that the city with the most snowfall so far this season is Erie PA.........which is where my new elliptical/recumbent/ exercise bike happens to be on sale. So, I am not snowed in, my bike is.
Outdoor exercise is so far down on my list of options that I won't mention it. We need about 40 more degrees to even consider it.
So, I have been exercising on my treadmill in the basement....3 sessions, each about one Shania Twain CD long. It is about 50 degrees down there, so I really miss my fireplace location. And the lighting is such that I close my eyes because I have a cataract that is developing, but not ready for repair, and the glare is annoying. Even so, I was doing fine, until the battery went out of one of my hearing aids. Who knew how much that affects balance?
Yeah, I sound like I am falling apart, but other than my vision, my hearing, my obesity, and a few other things, I am in perfect shape.......if zero is a shape, that is.
But, this is 2014. This is likely the year the cataract will be removed. It is certainly the year I will change the battery in the hearing aid...like in 2 minutes. I intend to have the obesity controlled, even if I just progress from obese to overweight. I am hoping I will be able to go off the BP meds. These are just a few things that are, to a degree anyway, in my control. So, I guess I have options after all.
