Exercise Is Helping Me Limit The Use Of My Cane!


Sunday, November 04, 2012

I was hit by a car and had extensive damage to my knees and hips. I have used a cane for years. The cold weather usually leads to increased pain and stiffness.
This year is different and I know why. I have been walk and involved in regular exercise as part of my Spark People plan.
emoticon I am careful to do exercises that do not cause more problems for my knees, feet and hips. I make sure I adapt all videos to my special health issues.
I have been walking and strength training. We have had cold and damp day. I am not using my cane at this time. I know that as the weather gets colder and the snow falls, I my need it. In the past, this cold , damp weather would have my knees in distress by now. I would need my cane.
Exercise is working for me! I am very happy. I take one day at a time and keep pushing forward. I know that exercise works; just find things that you can do. Just get started and keep pushing forward.
emoticon emoticon emoticon
I am focused on improving my health. I am focused on being stronger and able to walk without my cane as much as possible.
emoticon Walking is working for me. Make your exercise plan and just do it!
Have a great week!

    I am so glad that walking is working. This is one of the things that I can do some but can't push or I won't be able to move for a couple days. Water walking is the best but not available daily. You are doing fantastic!!

    This is wonderful to hear. We all believe in Spark People. I have been able to lower my cholesterol, lower sugar, and according to my doctor I halved all my borderline results in the year I have been on SP. emoticon
