That's what I'm finding! Between exercising and all I have to do, I just run out of time to get stuff done! I make a list in my head every night of things I have to do and most of it I just run out of time and it continues on my list. This healthier lifestyle does have it's drawbacks!
The good news today is that I appear to be coming out of my "I'm getting old" funk. Thanks to everyone for your support. Even if you are like Kris who commented that I look like I'm in my 20's. Not quite, but I thank you for lying to me!
For my birthday I bought myself a new, more sophisticated, GPS enabled heart rate monitor. I used it for the first time today and ran 6 miles in 54:49. I am running a 10K (6.2 miles) in September, and my goal is to finish in under 54 minutes. That's a lot of time to take off between now and September, but I'm getting faster and stronger everyday, so maybe. It's a goal anyway!
In surgery recovery notes, I'm still swelling quite a bit every time I exercise. The incision is very tight when that happens. I still can feel the incision all the time - it continues to feel like I'm wearing a rubber band. But it's not painful, just annoying at times. Next week I will be 8 weeks out and I'll post some updated pics for anyone who is interested.
I'd like to lose at least 5 more pounds but I'll be interested to hear what you guys say about how much I should lose. More? Less? Wait until you see the pics and you can let me know.
