Saw my cardiologist yesterday and he was happy with my cholesterol results. All numbers came back in the acceptable range. He wants to see me in a year to do another stress test so the pressure is on to maintain and maybe improve my numbers.
First step is designing a program that will accomplish those goals. Walking is recognized as a perfect exercise to improve ones cardiovascular system especially those who have been less active in recent years.
So today I start with baby steps and add to my distance each time I go out. My goal is to be doing 5 km each walk by the end of May.
To this routine I will add some stretching as well as weights thinking that those are almost as important as walking.
Now that I've stated publicly my exercise program I know my sisters will be checking in to make sure I'm maintaining the program. They already have an excellent walking routine and are an inspiration to me, who has found it too easy to sit and enjoy the views rather than get out and enjoy the walks.
I'll let you know in three months how I'm doing with the walking.
Time to get my walking boots on and get outside.
Thanks for stopping by and keeping an eye on me.
