For the past couple of weeks, my son has been taking swimming lessons. He’s a little afraid of the water, but he’s doing great. While he swims, I workout. It’s cool, because the time-limit on his swim lessons really helps me focus – and “get my workout done!”
Speaking of swimming, diet-wise, I’ve just kinda been “treading water”. I’ll do good for one day, and not-so-good the next. I’m down about 5 pounds, but not really locked-in to the whole diet thing. I got a cold the other day, spoke with my doctor, and got some very interesting news. He said that I should simply ignore the “weight charts”, and get down to a healthy, manageable weight. For me, instead of the 150 or 160 that I’ve always thought I should weigh, he said I should shoot for, say, 200 pounds.
So, I need to lose about 50 pounds, and not 90 or 100. This makes me feel much better. I’ve also scheduled a test for my thyroid, just to see if everything is okay with it. We shall see.
It’s raining today, so all walking will have to be on the treadmill. That’s cool, but I do miss the stroll through the neighborhood. Maybe it will slack-up a bit, and I can walk in the mist.
