April 14...

*walked 2 MILES on trail-46 minutes (one mile was too easy...)
*5# weights-biceps, triceps and overhead press-25 each

Jody from Home-Made Living suggested Vitamin D3 because of my doctor saying I had a 1-in-3 chance of developing breast cancer. SO, I'm taking 5000IU per day from now until July 14, at which time I'll get my levels checked and probably cut back a bit. Also, I'm going to get some magnesium via sunflower seeds and probably start on a Senior multivitamin in addition to eating more veggies, salmon and oatmeal for my cholesterol levels. I just started cholesterol lowering meds, and I don't plan to take them forever!:P

Finally back at it...

I've been using chronic fatigue as an excuse not to exercise since last summer and I was slowing down considerably before that. Now I'm trying to get back at it to get my lymph and circulatory systems working better. (So A&P class shouldn't be a TOTAL loss.)


*walked ONE MILE on the bike trail. Home to Nevis and back. 24 minutes.
*25 reverse crunches.
*arm exercises with 5 pound weights. (bicep curls, triceps and overhead presses: 25 reps)

My goal is to work up to 2 miles without overdoing it. When that gets too easy I'll begin jogging very gently. Not trying to set records, just stay with it for the long haul.
