Don't know what to call it? Listing my needs? Looking for Solutions?

12/05/2011 - I'm not sure what page it was, however, I just re-found this page having to do w/ my exercises. I removed all exercising trackers as possible as they are not possible for me to do at this time. Maybe someday, but I won't hold my breath. Due to my knees that have severe DOA & no medial meniscus in either (thus, I have bone-on-bone) making kneeling basically impossible,my back injuries from 9/2008 (10 total) & being prohibited from getting the care I need compliments of Medicare (no more procedures by the Interventional Pain Specialist to relieve the spasms & pain caused by them w/ or w/out activity), I need to find low-to-no impact strengthening exercises for both arms & both legs. There has been a marked decrease in strength in all 4 which I starting noticing months ago & it's getting worse. I've asked here on Spark People w/ no luck, trying to get a cycler to use with my legs & arms, however, I'm not sure I will gain strength by using the cycler. Also, my upper arms, need to rid of those teacher's arms ASAP, HOW? I hate my body & that I have no clue regarding exercises to decrease its quantity & increase its quality. Where do I go for the answers to the exercises I need to do to loose this obese weight. My body was not meant to be like this & I need it to get back to a lower & light & stronger weight. HOW?????? I would also like to get the knack of meditating as doing so may help me in others ways that physical exercising cannot do. Fatigue... I'll pass on that for now. Is this what is called blogging?

    Yes, this is a blog, and a good one. Congratulations on your first blog post.

If you do a search for "chair aerobics" at the top of the SparkPeople main page, it will link you to others who are working out this way. I've done a chair aerobics class, and with resistance bands, hand weights and balls, we got a pretty good workout, even within our limitations.

I don't know what your situation is, but you could try your local library to see if they have chair workout DVDs, or if there is a Senior Center near you with an exercise program you could participate in -- our local senior center will even have someone pick you up if transportation is a problem. Just a few ideas off the top of my head.

I'm so glad you are looking for ways to increase your fitness. Some of us will never run a marathon, but we can still be "all we can be."
