Also I got an email asking about exercise and if I partook of that particular nectar.  I do exercise, every week day I walk/jog home from work.  I have tweaked the route to an even four miles with three nice sized hills in it.  I started by just walking the whole thing, then I would jog one block and walk three, then jog one and walk one, and so on.  Finally after about 3 months of working up to it I actually jogged the entire way home....and much to my surprise it actually took me longer.  My jogging has a lot of vertical action, a lot of bits bouncing but it would seem the forward progression is a bit limited.  My heart rate was really elevated while jogging though and that's where we are burning those calories.  My time was improving everyday and then I got shingles.  I had a some bad reactions to the drugs and in combination with my other health issues I was out of commission for 6 weeks.  Basically I just started over with the walking for three weeks then took last week off after surgery.  I did some walking, but not more than a mile. 

This afternoon I brought my sweating clothes with me to work and I will start my walk home.  I am anxious to get back in the swing of things but I don't want to overdo it and break my Lapband!!  I tend to push myself too much.  So if I make it all the way home, then yay for me.  If not Peaches is on alert to drive my route on his way home and check for a beached hippo laying on the sidewalk. 

There may or may not be a second post for today.  There are some peeps out there that have gotten me thinking.........

Stay Tuned!
