- MY ANTHEM. Today, I had water aerobics and she was live and I felt every piece of the work-out and I loved it all. Later, I went to 30 minute express, which is 45 minutes of continuous work - our breaks are just turning around to do something else. It was gliders like this:

I wasn't great but I had a work out. We used dumbbells to hold ourselves in the pushup position and slide opposite forward while holding on the dumbbells, then we did the hamstring. Since that is a pilates move, I will be strengthen in that. Next was the crunches for 20 minutes - we held the dumb bells up and crunched up, twist to left to write, legs straight up, reverse crunches and just a bunch of them and on and on. I loved it and was breathing hard and working. I can only get stronger and sleeker.

Went to the cardiologist today - remember he was the one who walked in my hospital room, who thought: Another black obese female who is not going to listen to me. I clearly heard him, but he did not speak out loud. And then I got on his nerves when I would thank God, so I had to remind him of where he came from - we are friends now. Anyway, my heart is not strong, however, I have lost 18.6 pounds since we last saw one another, which I thought was suppose to be in 6 months - today, but it was really supposed to be 2 months. I had in my mind 6 months. He took me off of one med, because it makes me have a hacking cough, but I got another, and my heart is supposed to be weak, noticed I said supposed to be weak. All I can say is watch out there now, I am changing, bottom line.( remember my song). Now, I have to go every two weeks now until i get the pressure under control. I did not have the heart to say I forgot my meds this morning trying to get to the pool? I did admit it to my momma, and you guys; I won't do that again. I hated the look on his face and his concern. I then had to have a foot x-ray because I scrapped my foot and there is a slight inflammation, and he sent me for that. I am going to keep him because he is working with quirky me.

I am sleepy now and I am finishing up my ginger lime drink - fresh lime, ginger and a little honey. Say a little prayer for my minime, she appears to have a little bug. but she is still her sweet self.

Thanks for reading my blogs and remember smile at someone you see, they will feel honored for you to do so. I am smiling now.

    Sweet lips please take the meds honey we need you here your such a motivator.
    Girl I was too tickled when you said "watch out there now" that's throw back language. You can add that to your list of different languages you speak, talking like that, gone naw.
    Remember "I'm hip" was a response like the people use "word" today.

    Those gliders look intriguing...

    Glad you are getting on with your Dr, I have a 2nd appointment with a surgoen who treated me very badly next month, I have been told he's very good but not good with people at all. Hoping mine goes better.
