I have had a day off today only because I woke up at 4am and could not go back to sleep. This means that I then have the wobbles all day, this is from the problem I had over 3 years concerning my brain which needed a major operation.
I am not going to let this upset me and actually I must be taking note of me as I usually still try to do some things. Really is not worth it as I came close to having a fall again this morning.
So yesterday was a really good day with my exercises in the morning then the walk to school to get the kids. I again did over 10,000 steps. Did not ride my bike last night as I knew I did enough.
I am still doing my approx. 2 hours of exercises (except today) but probably only 60 minutes of it is harder than before. So I am very happy with that.
I am still going to play around with my exercises to find the right combination for me to do everyday. I enjoyed doing the 25 minutes of hard exercises yesterday morning.
I might try some of these 10 minutes blocks of exercises and see how that goes. I would rather not be doing so much walking. Also when I walk further is when I get more problems with my legs at night time, as in swelling and cramps. I am very aware of not wearing myself out to the point that I get tired again. Which is no good for the kidneys.
So this is what I am wondering 2 hours of exercising per day.
20 to 30 minutes of hard exercises in morning to get the heart pumping.
then 10 minutes every hour but one block easier and then one block heart pumping.
The plan is to do a maximum of 60 minutes of heart pumping exercises per day
approx. 40 minutes of easier exercises Total for both 100 minutes.
Then just smaller amount of steps. Which would only be 20 to 30 minutes per day.
By doing the other exercises not the walking as much gives me more choices as there are the sit down videos on Sparks that I could do.
Is this being realistic? Love to hear some suggestions.
