GETTING TO SHIP SHAPE

No more excuses.  Just do it.
 I have all the time in the world now.  Time to put it to good use!  My new good knee needs more exercise ... and I think it will help the other knee last at least two more years.  I have never been in very good physical shape but the past five years it has been sinking.  Even if all I do is WALK, my legs will be stronger and my cardio level will be stronger.

Luckily for me, Mr. Ralph has hand weights here and some resistance bands.  In the hot part of the day, I can build some muscle.  The walk around my circle is 1,200 steps.  Today I found my Fitbit and charger so I can set some goals.  


The community pool is just 1/2 mile or so from here, and I love working out and NOT sweating.  The water aerobics group now charges $5 per session but I think I will pay for once or twice a week, then do my own thing the other days.  Bonus!  A bit of sunshine and Vitamin D.

This is my new job.  Getting healthy.  I'm the only one who can do this.  I'll post monthly on how it is going!

    1. It's a must. Perfect weather. Nice flat, quiet neighborhood. Free pool. And time. Now! If someone could get me more energy!!! I know that will come as I get into shape. I can already tell the difference in walking my loop!
