Day 51

At lunch today at work, out of our usual five fun-loving gals lunch group, three of us were eating…well, drinking shakes. One of the other two told us she was getting the products to start on Monday. Of the three who were already using the HMR products, all three of our husbands are also on the program. So far, everyone has consistently lost weight and report just feeling better. Wow. This program is awesome.

I also started noticing different people around the hospital who were looking smaller. After speaking with them, sure enough, they were on the program and having the same results as my friends and me. The employees were across the board, physicians, nurses, secretaries, housekeeping and IT staff. Many were able to go off medications for diabetes and hypertension. And…they just feel better. Some of them attended the classes and some are doing it on their own. Okey dokey, this is not a commercial, I am not twisting your arm, but……….if you are sick and tired of being sick and tired, this could be a life-changing opportunity for you.

A couple days ago, I said to myself, “Self, you are gaining endurance during your bike rides and brisk walking so bump it up and start jogging.” So I get on my famous blue tennis shoes, do some fancy stretches and I am off!

I make it to the end of the block feeling like a jerky old horse, but only slightly winded. (If you have ever ridden an old mare you know the ride ain’t smooth). I walked the rest of the block. By then I am at the park with the hill that gave me fits early on in my program, so I jog up it. I get to the top and realize old women should not jog. That short distance just about disabled me. Between burning lungs, the pain in my left knee and right foot, I thought I was done for. But I sucked it up and walked the rest of my walk for a total of five miles. Okay, so while it may appear that I am tougher than a 25-minute hard-boiled egg, the truth is I left my cell phone at home and could not call 911. Moral of story - jogging can be hazardous to your health and should not be attempted by the afflicted suffering from over confidence. Today I walked with the assistance of a nice new ace wrap to the right foot.

A golfer bought two pairs of pants, just in case he got a hole in one.

I am In The Box.
