The treadmill has groaned to renewed life.
I got up on the sucker this morning for the first time in quite as while. I have written too often about that 12 hr shift rotation so I will spare you that again other than to say that is what kept me from any exercise program.
However, not only do I not have that problem I also have no reason not to begin again. I want to. We know of course, that is the best predictor of success. Wanting to do the activity. I just wish I were like Marilyn. Swimming is the very best exercise. I can't do that however as I am afraid of the water when it is above my waist. Blame my brother who let me sink when I was 5. But walking and trotting follows closely in good exercise. I am at the walking stage. It will take me a good week to walk rapidly. After I do that I will go outside for part of my walking where at least the view is different. Right now I am not equal to a lot out there as I live on a steep hill. I am a weenie after too many years of doing nothing exerting. So, first things first. In a while after errands etc. I will get back up on the treadmill. I only allow myself a small time on it for the first week.
Tonight I was to be taken to dinner again but I had to cancel as I am sure I wrote of last night. A good friend passed away Monday and the family is receiving friends this evening. I will dress and go to say a final goodbye to Wanda.
I have a date Friday, but I won't really eat. I will explain the diet. It is hard to find things no matter how you request this or that on the side...to have baked or grilled, not fried, and no gravy/sauces. It's just easier to eat at home. You can calculate the values much easier when you know for sure how the food is prepared.
Meanwhile the day waits. It's almost 9 and I haven't even gotten ready for going outside. I need to weed again, buy pansies, plant them and go to the bank.
See you later
