  1. Sarah's Health & Fitness Blog #1

    So, my husband had to have a triple bypass—took veins from his legs and chest, cut him open and filled his chest with ice, held his heart in their hands, and made him all better.

He’d had three small heart in his thirties and early forties, (quit smoking after the first one, and began to eat healthy food, and hiked a lot—but that didn’t do enough).

  2. Walking Really Helps!

    I have something called restless leg syndrome, which means my legs twitch at night when I'm trying to sleep. It not only keeps me awake, but really bothers my husband. A doctor prescribed something, but the possible side-effects sounded worse than my leg twitching. What I've figured out is that slow, steady walking for about a half hour, on a slight incline on a treadmill, will tire out my legs enough so they don't twitch. I can do it while I watch the news, although watching the news can get me upset so I can't sleep either. Maybe watch something boring. The idea is to get your legs tired, but not get your heart beating too hard. You can do that earlier in the day, with your regular workout, but at night, just use the treadmill to tire out your legs so you don't kick your spouse. :)
