Update on exercise and other things...

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

It's been a while since I've blogged. I couldn't keep up with my exercise plan as I had last written. I felt bad because of this and had to step back. The program was a post heart bypass walking plan and I couldn't do it! emoticon
I didn't stop though. I cut back on the number of minutes walking and the number of times a day and am doing well since then.
I've only taken rest days on Sundays. Now I can walk 20 minutes continuously (even if it is a very slow walk) three days a week, and I do Leslie Sansone indoor walking 1 mile video 3 days a week. If the weather permits (and it really hasn't) I walk outdoors.
emoticon I'm doing the Coach Nicole's arm and shoulder emoticon video twice a week and her Core Abs emoticon video twice a week. Last night I was curious to see if I could ride the stationary bike emoticon (the last time I could only do 4.5 minutes). I put on a Biggest Losers video and rode - - for 12 minutes!!! I was ready to stop but it was without too much stress....I'm happy! I don't know if I should continue in the evenings with the bike, as I do the walking in the mornings. I don't want to do too much because I'll then have to step back again and I'd rather progress slowly than have to go back. But I have so much more energy now! It's a great feeling!!!

The weight loss and eating well is going very well. emoticon I got below 300 pounds as of yesterday. Surprisingly, I have no problem with eating well and not eating junk. I have no desire for sugar and I was really a sugar and chocolate addict! I enjoy trying new foods now. Sunday, I made the Breakfast Lentil recipe that I saw here on SP and it was very good. I ate it as my afternoon snack. Low calories and fiber and with the apple it was sweet. I want to try the chickpea and lentil veggie burger recipe next.

Have a good Wednesday and I hope everyone is staying warm and dry with all this rain and snow we are having everywhere. emoticon emoticon

    CONGRATULATIONS on the great job you are doing. Listen to your body as you continue with your exercises so that you don't overdo it. I am happy (and I know you are too) with the progress you are making.
Enjoy a wonderful week and stay warm and dry. Our weather has been miserable with all the snow, freezing rain and cold. One day at a time we are getting closer to spring! WOOHOO!!!
I love the Abraham Lincoln saying...it is very true!!!

Blessings and hugs,
