I moved my treadmill from the basement to the spare bedroom just down the hall from my bedroom so that every time I leave my bedroom I can see the treadmill just waiting for me to use it. It's been pretty lonely down in the basement all this time. I can tell it really want me to use it.

Hi everyone: For the last 5 months I have allowed myself to wallow in self indulgent eating and laying around like a couch potato feeling lonely, depressed and sorry for myself. Tonight my little SP voice said "ENOUGH!!!" I am back on SP groups getting reconnected and starting today I am charting my eating and beginning my exercise program on Monday. I want to be the person I know I can be with the help of my SP friends who were able to help me in the past. So here's me reaching out.

I don't know about proud, but writing and spending time with my family definately helped me feel a little more sane...

Dave...my heartfelt congratulations. It was my being prescribed Lipitor last June that finally shocked me into action...3 months later I was able to go off with my doctor's blessing (albeit a bit of skepticism and with a promise that if my levels did not drop I would go back on) after another three months I was tested and found that my cholesterol had remained low even without the medication...Since then my cholesterol has continued to drop and I thank God everyday for my decision to get healthy. BRAVO!!! I will look forward to your blog...Gabi

Great job Gabi! Keep it up and you'll reach those goals.

I'm shouting about being off of my cholesterol meds. Look for a blog soon.

Now, with God's help, I will become myself.

Congrats to everyone for taking care of themselves. I helped my daughter move and decided a nap was in order. In a few minutes I'll go out for my PM walk now and enjoy it now that I've rested.

After being stuck in bed for four days in a row, I hit the ground running this morning. I did 20 mins of yoga. Then I did a Jillian Michaels workout that's available on our cable service provider. And then, because I had done nothing for four days, I did 30 mins on the bike. So I'm making up for lost time but not doing so much that I could hurt myself. I'll be sore tomorrow but it will be that good sore that lets me know I did something today.

Way to go, Greatdanelover!!! Fantastic!
What I have done today is that I walked around the neighborhood at about a 15mph rate for 3 miles. This is something I could not have done even 4 months ago or even had the desire to do so. Heaven forbid that I would actually get off my duff and walk for walking sake (not around a mall or on a trip). Then I went to the gym and did 45 minutes more of cardio!! Whoo Hoo for me!!

Hey Blooming52,

Looks like you're getting some side benefits from exercise. Good for you!

I got through my 7 miler on Sunday and did my spinning class today. Feeling good!

MRTHNDAVE - You're doing great with the spinning and the running. Keep up the good work!

Today, I finally managed to track my nutrition for the first time in awhile. I also exercised after taking about four days off due to muscle injury.

I hate to be the only one posting here, but I had to mention it.

I stuck with the spinning instructor until the end of class when everyone else was giving up or leaving early.

Today I shared food selection advice with my stepson and gave him some helpful articles to share with his SO. I invited them to come talk with me about these articles and also offered to help with their menu selections.

Discovered little batches are more beneficial than big batches of food. Cheaper foods are not as good as healty foods.
So this morning I had cereal, fruit, milk, and an egg.

Sunday I felt anxious. So I did some bulk cooking.
The ground lean beef was 15g of fat per serving!
The spinach was too salty, and too much fat.
So...instead of eating it and starting over ..I tossed it down the toilet and had cereal.

Discovered...dry non fat milk..is not the same as liquid non fat milk.
dry cereal is a half cup serving not a cup..so the nutrtional value is calculated as half. emoticon

Yo ticker! Thank you for moving down:)

Whoops..were you talking to me? I am so sorry.
The explanation given is correct...sooo what is a TENS unit?

Ok the stimulator is a hardware device that produces electrical impulses between the pain area and the brain. By the time these impulses reaches the brain, the brain says What? huh? oh wee, I don't know what you are saying.
My backache is several discs and nerve damage (sciatica)

DAVE --- WOOHOO!

I believe a Neural Stimulator is like a TENS unit...tiny electrical impulses are transmitted through pads you attach to your skin (they stick) thus blocking nerve sensation and pain...no electrucution though...you hardly feel the actual impulse...only the pain relief
