Well, I just spent an hour plus on the phone with the living donor advocate/social worker. She was awesome! I guess I'm getting closer to dontion, though I haven't specifically heard that the tests I've done so far (all the body fluid ones) are good or bad yet. I only have an EKG, chest x-ray and another female-oriented one to go.

I didn't lose anything last week, and I hope I lose a little this week. I have not been walking at all, except at work, and it's been a slow week at that! I find the excuses are easier to believe right now. That mindset HAS to change! I wanted to ask you all (the 3 of you that read this blog), if it is true that working out in the afternoon makes it harder to sleep at night?

I already have a hard time sleeping, so I've been afraid to do it. It's so dark and cold out early, when I really like to go, it would be nice if I could do in the afternoon instead! I'm only talking about walking/jogging. I haven't been doing any strength training, except sporadic attempts at squats, lunges, plank, etc.

I'm only working 2 days next week, so I am making a pledge now, to do 4 days of at least 30 minutes of walking!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Thanks, both of you. I'm going to try an afternoon walk today!

    The testing and waiting takes so long! I work out in the afternoon and early evening. I actually do worse if I work out in the morning. I just don't exercise after about 7/7:30. If I wait too long, I do get kind of ramped up and then can't sleep.

    Exercising in the late afternoon should help your sleep.
