Yesterday I added one tenth of a mile to the distance "rowed" the day before. I am up to 3.1 miles on the stationary bicycle/rowing machine. I try to add a little, just a little, to each day's endurance.
After a week of regular exercise and eating less, I am down one pound. "One pound" I hear you ask. That's is less than one-half a percent.
At least it is change in the right direction.
