I'm still walking and now riding my bike (when I'm not falling off)...my endurance is increasing nicely.

Thank you, ladies!

I don't recommend waiting as long as I did for a lifestyle change, though! It's been 170 days, I'll be very happy when I can count it in years.

Let see... mmmm. I ran after my kids, then ran after them some more, went for a walk to get some peace, then rode bikes with them, then cleaned the house, then bathed the kids....etc. Don't think I need anymore exercise..lol!
I ate 2 oranges
1 lemon, half an avocado, 1 tomato, 1 banana in a smoothie, some zucchini, bell peppers, green beans and some onion. I don't really count my fruit and veg per day but you made me think about it for once! Thanks

Thank heaven, our community center started a Zumba class. It's a little earlier than I'm used to (8 a.m. rather than my normal 9), but i forgot how much I love to dance ... really getting into it!

We all just made it back from vacation. NYC & Washington DC. We all ate way to much. Hopefully all the walking burned off a few calories. Back at it first thing monday morning.

The zumba class has been working for me; even lost a few pounds. I think the walk to and from the community hall (I live on a steep hill, it isn't a walk, it is a climb) has really been easily half the workout. I really missed that walk when the hospital moved. Yes, of course I know I can walk any time; I'm just better at walking where I need to go than just walking to get the exercise. I guess I need some outside structure.

Oh, another problem with me and walking? It really is my favorite form of exercise, but I like to exercise to music. I used to have a dozen or two cassette tapes of music I liked to walk to. Then my tape player died and I replaced it with a CD player and bought some CDs that are OK. But they skip like crazy, the player is bulky. I know there are more other types of personal music systems, but I'm having all I can do to simply keep up with the basics in technology. I'm not sure I want to learn how to operate an ipod or whatever. If I could just have something lightweight that didn't skip and was loaded with my kind of music, I'd probably spend more time walking. Our new car came loaded with Sirius/xm and I swear, if I could buy something with channels 4/5/6/7 I'd be in heaven.
