Awake and planning

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

For some reason I can't sleep tonight (it's 1.30am here in the UK), so thought I would make a quick blog entry. I think my recent loss is playing on my mind as I never usually have a problem sleeping.

I have been taking a look at my SP history and realising that I am not doing too well on the resistance exercises, so I need to find a way to make these part of my routine. I am going to start by doing body weight exercises and incorporating these into everyday activities - maybe some squats and lunges while I'm waiting for the kettle to boil, or in the evenings when I watch TV (which is often). I'll have a look on SP to see what has worked for others in my groups

    At least you were making good use of your time rather than just tossing and turning. I hope you're sleeping better now. It's so hard when you lose someone you love. Thoughts just kind of creep in at random times. I hope you're doing okay.

You have a great plan! I can't do squats or lunges without killing my knees! Enjoy those knees of yours! emoticon

    I haven't been consistent enough with it yet, but hubby has a set of very light dumbbells - 5 pounds I think - that I leave near my computer desk. I am supposed to do bicep curls and such while I'm on the net or watching TV. Maybe you'll have better luck at it than me? LOL

What I have been doing is some of SP's little upper body exercises: Side Bend with Towel and such - things that don't require serious equipment. I also try to do 10 pushups every other morning. I hate them, but I need to build some upper body strength, and I think it's starting to work.
