- A doctor told me I had to lose 50 pounds or my risk of stroke or heart disease will triple.
- Then he said, "come see me again in 4 months"
- 50 pounds
- 4 Months
But I've been back in the gym again lately, working on controlling my caloric intake, the whole nine yards all over again. But then yesterday I was running late to this and that -- and almost bailed on working out altogether -- when a realization hit me that I can't really understand why I hadn't thought of before..
There's a pool at my apartment.I mean, I know it's there -- I've swam in it many times with my son. But never had I considered it an exercise option.
But last night, pressed for time and with the sun starting to set, I got in there and did a bunch of laps. I was heaving breath and my legs were tight when I got out, but I was also feeling charged and great.
Can I do that every day? Probably not -- but it's an exciting new option that I'm gonna keep up with for a while, especially while the weather's nice.
My weight doesn't seem to be changing that much, but my options are a little more open, and that can't be a bad thing -- you know?
