    Hello friends....I actually joined this forum just over 5 years ago, and did well at first. Put myself in fairly good shape during the first year or so.

    After that, I kinda fell off the wagon. Still tried to eat good, but not much working out or anything else.

    Came back once in a while and made journals and promises I didn't follow through on. Life, a busy, busy life, was my excuse....

    Well now I am back. Thanks to a bad valve and open heart surgery, I find I am now on a cardiac rehab program. And what better place to document that, but here?

    I will be starting a new journal to follow with my rehab, and hopefully, my future fitness goals beyond just my heart.

    I've already seen a few familiar names....looking forward to catching up with everyone.

    Bob

    Bob, it's nice to see you post again. Sorry to read about your medical complications, but I'm glad the surgery went well and you're now cleared for exercise.

    Thanks, it was an eye opening experience, being completely at the mercy of others.
    Right now I am cleared for four, 5 minute walks a day. Wednesday, if all goes well, I will be cleared to take four, 7 minute walks a day.

    I was pleased to see that many of the diet changes we made in our home, shortly after joining this forum, paid off with a pretty healthy system. Except for the bum valve, I checked out great. Blood pressure good, cholesterol good, no blockages, or other heart issues....

    Cardio journal coming up...

    Bob

    Welcome back. Wishing you a full recovery.

    Still riding the bike? A BMW IIRC? (Well I mean in general still riding. My guess is you can't physically ride at the moment).
