Well thank you, but I am not the best role model. I add 30 pounds and drop it all the time. As I live in two places I have to adapt to what I have available, and quit eating so damn much. 6 months of the year I have a nice gym to work out in. I am working to set up a schedule for the other 6 months. More long distance walking, pretty much just dumbbell weights, and starting to work on my martial arts katas again. To look at me, I am fat, but I do exercise. From a front or back view I look fine. From the side you can see my mammoth gut. My goal is to just keep plugging at losing it.
As far as that cardiovascular condition, it isn’t associated with a bigemeny arrythmia, is it? My wife was just diagnosed with that. She would go in to spells a few times a week of an irregular pulse.. Her cardiologist said it was non fatal, and it is being controlled with a beta blocker. He just told her to live her life, and get exercise, and lay off caffeine and alcohol.
I would suggest you have your cardiologist and a physical therapist lay out an exercise program that take into account your situation. Might be surprised how vigorous it is. Some People with heart conditions can still be okayed to run marathons.
my battle is with arthritis and associated bone spurs. Five surgeries to remove bone spurs and counting. My right big toe is now fused so I can’t run anymore, but I can bicycle and walk. And because of spinal stenosis and bone spurs, no squats or overhead presses with weights. But I find things I can do. And right now I am going to split to the gun range for some Range Therapy, which is my favorite.
