Back at the Y again

I started again last week, and have been every day this week. I can tell a difference, too. I have lost a few pounds; my clothes are a little looser, and I feel a little fitter!

Temporary setback

I woke up Friday morning, New Year's Day, with a terrible sore throat and congestion in my head. No fever, but I didn't feel like going anywhere.

My throat was still sore Monday, so I went to the doctor. Not strep throat, no fever. She asked if I wanted an antibiotic; I said not now but write me a prescription so I can have it filled if necessary. I don't believe in taking antibiotics, or any other medication, unnecessarily. My throat wasn't sore Tuesday but I've started coughing, a lot.

Husband hasn't gotten it so far, and I hope he doesn't. I haven't gone to church or to the Y. I haven't felt like working out, and I don't want to spread my germs.

I haven't even been on the computer until now. I've done Facebook and Solitaire on my phone.

Back to the Y

After a few days hiatus, I'm heading back to the Y in the morning. I'll have to skip Wednesday, and Friday is New Year's Day, but one day is better than none.
I haven't lost any weight (may have gained some; I'll get on the scale tomorrow), so after the first, I'll start getting serious about my eating habits. More vegetables, fewer cookies - that should help!

Exercise class

I've joined a "Fit for Life" class at the YMCA. All the members I've met so far are ladies my age, but I don't think it's restricted. The first class was stretching, and the second was aerobic. They meet Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays, but I haven't been able to attend the Friday classes so far. That should change. It seems to be partly social, too; they're planning a Christmas party this Thursday (I have a prior commitment.). I'll get into the swing of things soon.

Fitness progress continued

I'm on my own now; I had only hired a trainer for 10 one-hour sessions, and that ended this week.

I took a 1 1/2 mile walk yesterday, and today I used my stationary bike for 10 minutes, and did a few reps with a 2-pound weight, and some walking.
