I have limited mobility and use a cane. I was hit by a car as a teenager on my way to school and had extensive injuries to my knees and hips. I set a goal to become stronger and increase my health. I started exercising for 10 minutes most mornings. I usually walk in the house. Next I added Leslie Sansone's dvd/"Walk At Home Series". I started with one mile/ three times a week. I slowly increased to two miles / three days a week. Now I have increase to more than three day of walking.
I started small and have just keep pushing forward to increase my exercise.
I love to garden. Each year I want to plant a fall garden. By the beginning of September, my knees and feet are too sore to continue gardening at full speed.
This year I am strong enough to keep gardening. I have been cleaning up my pots and planting my fall crops.
I am able to reach this goal do the increase in exercise.
I am very excited and happy with my progress. It is a small win but it makes my life better. I enjoy gardening and eating my fresh, home grown veggies.
I believe it will help me be healthier.
I plan to keep pushing forward and exercising. I know my limits and make sure I adapt all exercises to my physical limitations.
I plan to move forward making small changes.
I want to make these changes long enough for them to become new habits.
We just have to get started. Start small and then add more movement later.
Exercise is really
JUST GET UP AND DO IT NOW!
I believe we can change our lives one step at a time!
WE CAN DO IT!
