Starting with Steps.

Thursday, October 01, 2009

Started with steps on Wed Sept. 23/09. It came with a DVD, and a CD for when walking outside. My prolbem was that I can't walk when it's too hot, or humid, or snow or ice. And I can't afford a treadmill, and don't have a place to put it, even if I had one.
So I was looking for something that I could do year round, and could be done indoors. I thought about the WII Fit, but I couldn't get over how much it would have cost, and not sure if it was something I could do. So the steps really has come in handy. I'm loving it, and progressing a bit each week. And I can use this all year round, no matter what the weather.

    Hi Ima.
    Please let me know if you got this message, as I'm not sure that I did this right. I'm wondering if it just posted in my blog.

    Hi Ima.
    Thanks for the info. I have purchased a DVD set called."Walk at Home" By Leslie Sansone. So I've started that, but I only can do about 10 minutes of it at a time at the moment. And I know I will be able to increase the minutes as time goes by. I like this, and you're doing this with a group of people, so you feel you're exercising with others. Makes it more fun. I know this journey takes time. One day and one step at a time. Had to get away from Sparks for some time, as my sugars were out of control, and I was getting so worried. So I was able to get in with the Diabetic clinic, and now my sugars are in control since I started on insulin. They told me that sometimes as we get older, our bodies don't produce enough. As if I needed to be told that I'm getting older. LOL. So now that I've got the sugars under control, I've come back and starting all over again. So I'm so pleased to be able to be back.
    I appreciate any info that I get from others, as it's encouraging, and I don't feel so alone on this journey. A whole new lifestyle, but also a whole new life for me. So looking forward to be able to meet my goals that I set for myself again.
    Again, thanks for the info. God Bless.

    Oh, I see that you posted this some long time ago, Dee. Still, I thought I might suggest that you find videos walking in place (maybe there are some here at SP) on the Internet.

    A gal gave me a DVD of such an exercise program --- she said that a family member had dropped an amazing amount of weight by simply doing that video in her home. I don't remember the exact amount of weight; however, I do know that it amazed me to hear just how much she had dropped in a six month period.

    God bless!
