Couch to 5K Week one Complete

I am pretty proud of myself.  I completed Week one of Couch to 5K.  Whew.  Because I am 100 pounds overweight, it is quite an accomplishment.  I am pretty sure I can handle next week, but if a week ever becomes hard to tackle, I will continue doing it until I feel ready to move to the next week.  Dr. K seemed concerned I was actually "running" and would prefer me to walk.  Honestly, I understand what he is talking about, but if I CAN do something and feel likes it's not too extreme, I will continue on.  If anything, it will help me get in shape or at least recover from my surgery easier.
Each time I go a little further and burn a few more calories!

Completed Week 1!

Speaking of surgery, yesterday I made the appointment with the dietitian.  Things are really coming together!  I still need to hear from the pulmonary lab to get my sleep study done, and I hope they call me soon.  Jill, from Dr. K's office said they can be pretty backed up.  I hope not too backed up.  So far, I am being pretty patient.

My husband was going to pull $1000 to contribute for my out of pocket costs.  Unfortunately, his accountant had not been billing him monthly as he assumed and sent him a $2500 bill this week for his services.  I guess I will have to wait and see if the funds are available next month.  I have about $2100 saved now and need about $3000 to cover insurance out of pocket for my medical appointments and surgery.  All considering, this is very reasonable!

This morning I am watching 2 of my grandchildren for an hour or so.  They are little angels and so easy to take care of.
