My days consist of much the same thing every day. getting dressed and sometimes showered; washing the dishes from last night's supper; reading my daily Bible (I've decided this year once again to read through the Bible in a year.), cooking a light lunch and a dinner for my husband and myself and I try also to get some kind of exercise in to my day. I used to do 20 minutes to a half hour on my recumbent bike; sometimes ten minutes on the treadmill (all I can do til my hip starts to hurt too much to bear). Now I will be having PT and they will be assigning me exercises to do. The rest of my day is spent on line or reading.
My husband bought several cookbooks and eating programs for people with heart disease, Dean Ornish, the originator of the belief that heart disease can be reversed through diet, and a couple of later ones which are a little more lenient. I will be studying these books later today and in the days to come in order to come up with recipes for menus and shopping lists.
It's time to just suck it up and DO IT. Sometimes I think the hardest thing in the world is to get my butt out of this chair and exercise. I haven't gotten across that magic line where working out becomes essential and fun and just a mandatory part of my day. If I could just make it across that line I would be good. I think that THAT should be my focus and my goal...even more important than how I'm eating. Thus said, It's time for me to get up and do something. I'll see you later!!
