This week I have worked on walking longer and faster. Today, Thursday, I walked 40 minutes. The last 10 minutes seemed like an hour. But I did it. And I walked faster, thus further than all week. One way I keep my pace up is listening to good music on Pandora. Some of the best music for me to walk fast: Areosmith, Abba, Def Leppard , Classic Rock, and Queen.
I have cooked a little, but mostly I let Marty cook, and I wash dishes. I do make my own breakfast and lunch. But Marty is the Chef. He is doing a great job integrating the Cardiac, Diabetic, and Warfarin diets. So far so good. I am losing weight, a good thing, and I don't feel too deprived. The food is tasty. I do miss cheese, sauces, and Bourbon. I plan to find some cheese that is low fat low sodium. But there is no substitute for Bourbon. Sauces probably can be adapted. We will see.
I did some light housekeeping, very light. I make the bed each morning. This weekend I am planning to tackle laundry. The hard part is going up and down the 26 steps so many times. That scares me. I was going to try it today. But we decided to wait until Marty is home in case I have problems.
Next week the plan is to go back to the Marriage Factory Monday and to school on Tuesday. We will see just how strong I am.
