For those of you who are regular visitors you are aware that hubby suffered a major heart attack in November and that I also have had heart attacks and heart surgery in the past.
Hubby's brother has been using hubby's compound bow for the last few years and in fact has kept it at his house instead of returning it at the end of each bow hunting season. Brother and his wife had a treadmill almost brand new that they never use. Hubby traded his bow for the treadmill and we will now begin a walking routine to maintain our health. It'll be like having the YMCA right here at home!
In fact, I already began. I walked for 20 minutes this morning and clocked a big whopping speed of 2 mph and walked a total of 1/2 mile. Doesn't seem like much does it? But since I haven't walked in quite some time I figured it was a good start. I hope to benefit two ways from this: 1) improving my health and getting in better condition, 2.) losing some weight. Just think, if I can lose enough maybe I will even buy a two-piece bathing suit for this coming summer.....NOT! Some things are just not to be tried by a 59 year old woman!
