I feel like for a bit I need to post my activities and try to keep on this path I am on. Scotti, the dog I am watching is going home late Wednesday night. Thursday I want to get back into my regular routine and try to get some inches off. I have been doing more reading and thing I will crank up the level of the treadmill. When I was hiking/walking in the mountains, I felt much better and felt like I could possibly lose some inches over time. I will try different levels and see how it feels. Time to probably wear that stupid heart monitor strap; you know the one that is not easy for disabled people to attach. The treadmill to me feels like it is not as effective as actually being in the mountains or streets. I suppose time will tell. I will post when I can.
