February, I started tracking my food, following the Weight Watchers guideline. Last week I started exercising, specifically power walking. It’s a simple exercise. All one has to do is lace up one’s sneakers and step out the door. Swimming is my preferred activity, but planning is required to get a time slot in the YMCA pool. I guess I use the same amount of time, more or less. I stay around the house when I walk. More social interaction comes with going swimming at the Y. I need the structure of being at certain places at certain times.

I swam 250 meters Monday. Today I swam 600 meters. I’m taking incremental increases. Tomorrow, I’m going for 900 meters.

Getting back is the best.
