I have always loved cycling and always have had a relatively high end bicycle. About three months ago I bought a new one. However against my hopes, my balance problems of the last few years have made using it impossible.
Well, they say that as you grow older (I am 77 y.o.) you start to revert to your child.
So, today I went out and bought a high end large tricycle. No need to make fun of me - I am doing it myself.
Tomorrow watch my dust. emoticon

week 1 went great. Close to 100% on my goals but realize what I really need to work on this week! My FBS #'s are still too high but they are starting to slowly come down.

This week I will focus on getting that green drink in more!!!

I did all the cardio for the week 1 and tracked my food but did not get in any strength training.
Today I am going to try the seated 20 minute resistance band workout. Seated due to my limited mobility.
So onward and upward as I start week 2.
And FBS is almost where I want it: 128 heading for 100,

Wasn't able to track food because we were gone and had no internet connection for four days. Yes, I lived without internet very well.

The start of week two for me. I'm tracking food almost daily. Worked out at the gym yesterday. We work out three times a week most of the time. The next two weeks it will only be twice a week. We are going to PA on Thursday to camp with our camping club. Walking the dogs will have to do.

Took a step today on this journey to healthy living. Dusted off the recumbent bike, put batteries in it and rode for ten minutes. I also drank two glasses of water (I really struggle with this one as I only drink coffee and Crystal light throughout the day.)

Today is Wednesday a planned rest day (1 day/week) but feeling guilty anyway.
I really miss bicycling but my balance has gone south and stationary bicycles just aren't the same. No change of scenery and no one to stop an talk with.
So, much to my dismay, I am considering the purchase of an adult tricycle.

I had planned for a light cardio day today of only 10 minutes as I felt I needed a bit of a rest. I kept the speed fairly low but tired very quickly. Wasn't until I got off treadmill I discovered that I had raised the incline to 12 degrees. So a good day all in all. Going to do a few crunches now and some calf and quad extensions.
See you all tomorrow.

Day 3 of week 2.
Feeling semi-proud today.
Saw my endocrinologist this morning and he was very happy with my FBS (146) after he took into consideration my recent cortisone shots. We expect by next check it I will have it where it should be.
But the real reason for feeling good is that after spending most of the morning running errands and then using work as an excuse for as long as I could (I work from home) I got myself on the treadmill for 15 minutes which is my target this week. However, I need to add some strength exercises too. Did them on Sunday but not yesterday.
No more excuses - I can always find 15 minutes.

I realize that one of my major problems is that after dinner I usually lie down in bed and watch TV.
Going to try something different starting today.
This needs to be a life style change.
1 -- will take a leisurely walk around our garden and play as best I can with our Golden Retriever who is always looking for someone to play with her.
2 - I am also going to download some e books and sit in a chair (not lie down) and read before going to bed. I know still sedentary but better for brain and sleep.

Day 1, week 2.
Okay - finished week 1 doing just the minimum to follow program.
Time to step it up a click.
I have done it before and I can do it again.
It's not about will power.....it's about won't power.
I won't eat that donut, I won't find excuses not to exercise etc.

wellmy spark page blog has my week two challenges. Im am keeping up with my exercises and suggestions. I can see myself getting stronger daily. The stroke was only a month ago, but I refuse to let it get the best of me.

Just keep focused and your dreams will turn into realities. With God as your Master Trainer, all things are possible!

week 2 day 2
fell victim to some peanut m&m's...again...but this time i only had a few that were left in the bag. I know now not to buy them in the first place. If they aren't in the house I don't really think about them but when they are here they call to me!!!

went to jazzercise this morning then did a very leisurely after dinner bike ride for about 20 minutes. All in all it was a good day! Oh, and by the way if you have am Island's restaurant near you try their veggie tacos. They are DELISH!!!! and only 460 something calories. They're filling and so satisfying and after i eat them i don't feel like i need to lay down and take a nap.

good night everyone! emoticon
