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.........
