Talking Im baaaaaaaack :-D

Run for the hills, I am back!

I have been gone for quite a while. While I was gone, I was still following the low sodium and fairly low fat lifestyle and I think I managed to lose a few pounds. I can now drive the car, whereas I could not before because the seat was stuck in a "too close to the wheel for a fat girl" position. I can actually drive it now,.. whoohoo! I also think I need to buy some new pants because I keep stepping on the bottoms of these.

At the last cardiologist appointment I had back in Janurary, my blood pressure was something like 130/90 which is quite a change from when I was admitted to the hospital and it was well over 200 (like 276 or something). I am still on my blood pressure meds and it does not seem like I will be going off of them anytime soon. I still have 2 or 3 refills :-D

The bad part is that I have not exercised in months. Today I dusted off my Leslie Sansone dvd after seeing how well Howie was doing in his blog. I did the whole mile but I thought it was going to kill me. My chest did not hurt or tighten up but boy my legs and back went nuts! It will get easier once I start doing it ona regular basis again though. It is time for me to get back into the swing of things. How have you guys been doing?
Guess I'm restarting!

Hi Heather,

Glad you are back. I had been wondering how you were doing. It sounds like you are feeling better and things are going better.

Welcome back girl. I've been reading your blog and keeping up with you there. WTG on getting out the tapes. I have a tip for you. I know in the past you said you struggled to get through that mile. If you will use the 2, 3 or even 4 mile tape and walk that first mile many times you'll be feeling better and end up walking farther. I usually do the 3 mile tape and will walk at least 2 miles on it if not the whole thing because that last mile seems so slow compared to the rest that my HB goes back to normal and I just like the relaxing way it goes.

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

I've never really gone off plan this whole time, but I certainly could have been stricter about the whole thing.

As for the car thing, doesn't that sound awful "I couldnt sit behind the wheel"
Stupid old car seat getting stuck,..

Now I can drive comfortably and the first time I drove somewhere alone, even though it was just across town, I was so happy.
isn't it funny the things that make you happy?

Barbygirl: I do have the 2 mile dvd, so maybe I will just try doing a mile of that for awhile and see how things go. I know it wont be as hard after I get my body used to it again.
Guess I'm restarting!
