Peg BS: Getting In Shape (38) RE: BS: Getting In Shape 01 Jan 05


I am still dealing with not being in top form after my broken leg and surgery this summer, so my usual 3-4 mile walks and winter hiking are out of the question for a while yet. But I can walk up to two miles a day with no pain or fatigue. I'm thankful I am still able to be active but it's frustrating to have to worry about overdoing it...

I lost weight while the broken bone was healing, but it started to creep back on when the weather turned cold. Time to go back to yoga! Good companion to my physical therapy stretches.

I agree with the idea that you have to make changes you can live with, whether gradual or sudden. I did not stop running 5-6 miles a day all of a sudden, it was gradual. So replacing it with a similarly-vigorous daily workout would not make sense (nor could I do it at the moment, anyway). But once I get the metal out of my leg (next year hopefully) I hope to go back to jogging 2-3 miles, 3-4 times a week.

Some people get their first taste of organic produce and are so shocked they start eating better, purer food which consequently helps them lose weight...I know I feel better and can keep weight off more easily when I am not eating preservative-laden junk...and eating chemical-free foods is better fo the environment and world in general.
