|One of many that made me fat|
Exercise is my life now. I weigh 210 pounds this weekend, which is down from 235 before heart attack and 265 pounds before I retired five years ago. My energy has returned and I can lift and carry 50 pounds, getting up from the ground is a lot easier for me now also.
On days between my physical therapy, I walk 1.7 miles at 2.8 miles per hour and also work out with weights and a leg press. It is about the same amount of work as I get in PT, but without the monitoring. There is a guy in PT who has been there for a year since his heart attack and is so fit I thought he was a jogger or long distance runner. He said he weighed more than me and had a heart attack on his retirement day from a large corporation. Now he wants to live and be able to enjoy retirement and is highly motivated. My insurance and motivation is not as good as his I think.
I only used 143 Gig Bytes of 150 allowed last billing period and I only have 27 days to use 150 again. Not much chance of making it, as I am only at 15 gig now and there is only so much time in a day. I need a break form movies for a bit.
Yesterday was our last sunny day of Summer, a bit chilly made it good for a long walk. The trees are all yellow now and made for a most beautiful day to be outside. Been eating a lot of yummy watermelon this week, that time of year up here.
