I’ve been focused on regaining health and fitness for a year. I started on a hunch with an aggressive diet cutting out processed foods, especially sugars and starches. It was a good beginnin。A year ago I could scarcely bike, swim or even walk at all. I’m now regularly taking walks of a mile without assistive devices such as a walker or even a cane. I need to pause frequently but I can remain standing. With a walker I can readily go a mile in a half hour and can jog a few paces although not with sufficient control to do it safely. To develop strength I walk short distances encumbered. When fresh I can go about 50 feet carrying 70 lbs which is as far as I could walk 1 year ago not carrying anything.
