You have probably guessed that I am not pedaling away 6 days a week anymore. As a matter of fact, it’s been tough to get in 2 or 3 sessions since Week 24. One thing and then another, you know.
But it’s the only thing that keeps my knees free of pain and swelling (besides the one capsule of glucosamine/chondroitin/MSM that I take each night) and it costs nothing but 30 minutes of my *valuable* time. So I believe that 3 times a week on the exercise bike is worth making the effort, and certainly better than anything else I could do at home.
I’m not walking. I know, I know, I promised that I would get back with it once these hurricanes were over with. The weather is improving, so I really have no excuse. Life gets busier at this time of the year, and more stressful, so making time to walk and/or pedal is essential to keep me healthy and relaxed. I’m certainly not relaxed lately…
I’m no longer stuck at 220 lbs. Now it’s 218 and won’t budge! This week I’m drinking soy “milk”, and I notice that my stomach does not have that slightly upset feeling, and I don’t feel like I need to take a nap after breakfast. Although I have never had lactose intolerance, I guess it’s possible to lose some ability to digest it as I age. As for wanting to nap, maybe it is the tryptophan in the bovine product. I don’t think this is going to make me start eating Rice Dream(R), though……More later.
