Here we are at the first week of December. Lots of celebrations (depending on your preferences) and year-end feasting and imbibing ahead. I reckon the wise among us will take a vow of moderation right about now. I am holding on to a 30-pound weight loss since last summer and I don't want to let go.

One motivational help for me is the occasional Steps Challenge thrown your way by fellow Garmin step trackers from around the world. I am in the final day of one today -- and lo and behold, I have a 5,000-step lead! It actually helps that I am in Cardiac Rehab because we do lots of movin' and groovin' of various kinds, under the watchful eyes of our sweet nurses. And my faithful dawg Ellie commands me to take a daily walk with her. My road to a new walking life began 10 weeks ago, just out of aortic aneurysm surgery, when the nurses at UNC-Chapel Hill regularly dropped by and asked if I wanted to take a walk with them. I am not one to decline walking offers from nice and kind young folks, so I did a lot of walking before I got home. Going to put in some extra steps today 'cause I really would like to win this Garmin Steps Challenge. It would be my second victory in past year, which has been a time of great challenge generally. (I don't know all the back stories of my fellow competitors, but I gather they are regular folks on fitness quests, not Olympic athletes in training.)

Anyway, my Cardiac Rehab runs (approx.) from Thanksgiving Day to St. Valentine's Day, at which time I hope to re-enroll in my good friend Sarah's instruction at our local core fitness club. Best fitness class I've ever had! Without the personal training there the past few years,I probably would not be having (so far, knock on wood) such a good recovery at age 78 from a doozy of a surgery.

So that's how I am staying my course this first week of December. How about you all? Hope to hear from one and all....

Cheers,
Superbob 🦸‍♂️

Wow, I see we have 51 views but zero responses this week. That's okay, this is a hectic time of the year for many folks. I will continue to do a week starter through the holidays though I probably will be talking mostly about my own experiences (because after all that's what I know)....cheers to all.....

P.S. BTW, I did wind up winning the Garmin steps challenge, 73,000-plus steps, about 4,000 more than the runner-up. Also set personal one-day best of 19,000-plus steps. Cardiac rehab is working well for me.

Congratulations SB !

The forum seems pretty quiet overall, perhaps that's why none of us replied to your orignal post here. I do read your posts, I read most of the posts (apart from INR ones as I woudn't have a clue here) but I don't always have something to say, BUT your winning the Garmin steps challenge is great - shows how fit you are getting (y)
