4,500 steps seem to be my average between July 19 – 25. It’s helped much to walk that inner perimeter where I live when pedometer numbers say, “More!”

What was on my mind back on March One at the start to think I could lose 10 pounds by June One? Dreams!
Weight loss – maybe one pound. Need a new, better, smaller scale that goes in bathroom, not under the bed. More realistic goal: One more pound by 75th birthday, early August.
Treadmill – where has that three times a week gone? Have not done at all since end of May. Can I focus on two things at once–pedometer + treadmill, is this for me like patting one’s head and rubbing stomach at same time? Question still out there and will re-focus.
Food intake – Cannot recall last red meat. Of course I think about it! But this is most successful area. Noshing on nuts and dates still an issue and chocolate continues as presence in everyday life. Though there was one time….
WALKING Did much of this through the City on May 25 and 27. Need a new pedometer.
Problem: The day after! Think this is the age/energy factor, especially with city walking on pavement. And so give myself permission not to go to gym. Hope to change this, but…

Saturday March 8 – important treadmill day:
Hands-free entire 20 minutes!
10 min. at 2.5 and 0.5 incline
10 min. at 2.5 and 1.0 incline
Told that this is important not just for my balance issues also for body alignment.
Neighbor suggests that large book works for reading while treading. Been meaning to read Banta, “Imaging American Women” since early 1990s. This might be the time.
Since March 3, my progress has been erratic. That day I had no chocolate! Only ate a tangerine between dinner and bedtime.
March 4 – 20 minutes on treadmill, 15 of them handsfree since strengthening balance is an issue. Maintained 2.5 speed and 0.5 incline.
ate one date after dinner.
March 5 – Problem with evening class begun and when to eat. Ate at 5 p.m., small meal. Hungry after class and had a piece of pizza with friend on way home. Goal: get a grip on this.
Walked half hour from school to westside subway.
March 6 – 1 date after dinner and tangerine.
March 7 – Too much sitting because at conference most of day. Part of sandwich for lunch and cookie.
Orange after dinner.
