I did not exercise yesterday, I see a pattern evolving it seems that every other day will be better. I think I will be more successful. So 30 minutes on the bike.

Yes, I did ride my bike for 20 minutes yesterday. I did not record the distance as the time is what I am looking for. I will try for 25 minutes today, I do like bike riding.

Starting again after some time, but in Florida I have a recumbent stationary bike and did 2 miles in 15 minutes yesterday. Will slowly increase daily. I have a month to strength my legs before our Disney vaca with grandkids.

I walked for 21 minutes on the treadmill and I am increasing the time to 25 minutes at 2% incline and 2 mph. I am slowly working my way back to the 30 minute mile, then I will increase the incline. As I do not like to sweat my previous 30 minute mile did not break a sweat with the increased incline I break a sweat and slightly elevated breathing. I have to check my level of pain (so far none). I feel much better.
Our yard is small and I mowed (power mower) half the yard. My back feels so good with that little workout.

Yes, I increased my walking (with agreement of doctor) to 20 minutes at 2 mph with 2% incline. No pain and no sweat so I can do more but I will wait until next week.

Intend to use treadmill today and to go outside.

My third cardiologist gave me the go ahead for walking exercise. I started back with .5 mile on the treadmill at 1% incline and 2 mph speed. The speed and incline are where I left off but I was doing a mile. I also walked, to get the mail which had given me pain in the past but did not. The pace was slow as I was with my husband who never walks but is starting.

I have an appointment with my first cardiologist the end of September. I will keep a record of my pain, if any, and the slow increase of the exercise. I will also continue to water plants (with broken hose it now means carrying water ) I actually have several eggplants and I am so pleased. Weeding must get done also.

Just writing this down makes me so much more hopeful. I am so thankful for this site.

I ordered a battery powered hand held edge trimmer from Amazon. I had one from Walmart but it played out. Ordering from Amazon is so easy and convenient especially at this time of year. I love the tourists they add so to our economy but they make shopping difficult also. So this was ordered and delivered and I used it for touching up edges of my flower gardens. I also mowed for a little until battery ran out. Finally, fed the potted flowers

I took my time and completed the tasks. Love the colors of the gardens

Yes, I worked in garden still avoiding preparing last plot, but did a lot of little finishes and it is looking good. I planted 2 eggplants, I wonder if I will get any or if the critters will re-discover my garden. I stopped veggies when I knew I was feeding a family of groundhogs that had moved in under my shed.

I was working in my flower garden yesterday. I seem to have lost a bed of perennials - "Red Bee Balm". I had transferred many to a new bed last year and they are not as yet up. I have others that can be moved but I think I will add some nutrients to the bed before I transplant. The humingbirds love the red so I hope to be successful.

Sun is our now hope to start this project today.
