I am doing fine with the activity. Hitting right at my goal of 10 running miles per week. Getting plenty of steps. Not enough sleep; average of 6 hours, 10 minutes this week;l keep waking up too early. Resting heart rate has been over 60 since 5k 9 days ago. Scale is the highest it has been for several years. Right now I am in the waiting room, soon to have a shoulder x-ray. Some of the weight is swelling and inflammation. Not sure if the meds I am now on 3x a day causes water retention but I often gain when I am on meds -- or is it comfort eating? Either way, time to be more diligent about tracking food. Pre-planning usually helps some, too. I will be 70 years old here in less than 3 weeks, and I do not intend to get back to a BMI of under 21. But I would like to go down about 3 pounds; at the very least, quit gaining. I am committed to live happy while I address the shoulder and weight issues!
