Happy New Year!

Just popping to wish everybody good luck. -- I am still bound to my chair. I am seeing a dr on the 7th to evaluate the situation and see how soon I could start physical therapy.

One thing I must say; I have always been an active person; and now that I am sitting about 24/7, the pounds are just piling back on, and fast. -- Exercise makes such a huge difference what comes to losing or even maintaining one's weight. So keep on doing it!!

01) 1/10 ~ 3.5 miles
02) 1/11 ~ 3.7 miles
03) 1/13 ~ 3.8 miles
04) 1/15 ~ 3.8 miles
05) 1/18 ~ 4.3 miles
06) 1/23 ~ 4.6 miles

I am in also, and once again have no organized exercise plan. I did great in December with this and will continue as I can.

I did something wrong last month and had to back off, rest up and am now going again. Actually, I think the problem had more to do with what I was eating/drinking. I wound up changing what I was eating, not for a diatery reason but just because ... I liked it?? Wanted it??? Myself, I don't even know why for sure. Mostly because I got into some different type of food preperation/cooking. Fermented foods-- Kimchi, Saurkraut, vegtables, chilies... Then experimenting with mixing quinoa, flaxseed meal and other things into with cornmeal and making different breads. Some did not taste all that great but did not taste bad either. Me and my dogs ate it :) I know they liked it way more than I did though.

But that was not the real reason. It was the different sauces I started using. Salty ones and the fermented foods are made using salt. And added to that, drinking soy sauce and some hot sauces right out of the bottles for the taste. Way too much salt and chili in my system, caused atrial fibrillation to an uncomfortable degree. So I backed off on the salt intake and on any kind of hard work until it leveled out, which it has now.

So that is the story of from a few days from Christmas til now. I am ready to resume.

My exercise once again will come from doing hard physical work but not as much in a day as I was.

Thanks for this thread Joy, and glad to be here with you all.

Thanks, Joy, for organizing these monthly challenges!! Besides the group being so supportive and encouraging, the daily logging REALLY helps keep me going!

My good-better-best list (sounds like a cheap mattress ad!) follows - I've upped the numbers and plan to add 2 to 4 yoga sessions depending on when classes resume.

SUM - hope you are better soon.
BFR - just reading about all those gardening chores tired me out. That was some heavy work there!
noname - isn't where you live a little snowy for hiking now???!!!
kelijpa & Amethyst - see we all got our Dec goals just under the wire. Procrastinators unite!!!
