Trying to Get Back on Track

I have been trying to get back on track.
Walking... gave it up in Nov. for the
long track, and gave up the post office
run in Dec.

Didn't think I would like a broken leg
at this stage of my life. And I did fall
one time on the way to the Post Office.
Only thing that got hurt was my pride.

Now we have a treadmill, and it is almost
like starting over again. I have the same
pace, but not the longivity of it. Best I
have been able to get out is 30 minutes.

So have decided to get my eating in
range again. And step up the minutes
per day by 5 until I can reach an hour.
I have been watching tv as I go, as it
is boring to just do the treadmill itself.

Maybe I could find the Village People
and play that, to get more into my
gait.

Well, it is time to get on the treadmill
of life. And for life.

Keep at it! 30 minutes is a great start and if you keep adding minutes, you'll be where you want to be in no time. Too, don't forget that for folks as us, use it or lose it. Sobering thought, huh? I*am*proud*of*you!

You go girl! I did the same thing. Quit walking the first week of Sept. Not dog walking, but the treadmill. Backed off to 20 minutes to get at least a mile in. But will begin cranking it back up.

Don't know about you but I use the time to frame the day's posting in my head. If I'm not gonna, like today, the old mind just wanders.
