Hi everyone, home safe and sound from Adelaide, another long day. Of course it was hot for travelling and my air conditioner in the car does not work.

All went well. One of my appointments was with a exercise physio and she is going to send me a heap of information about exercising. Gave me lots of suggestions.

All the information I have gained from all of you has helped a great deal also. I now realise that I was aiming too high and would have burnt myself out.

The exercise physio did tell me to use heavier weights as I have only been using 2kg (4 lb) for a while. She recommended 3kgs weights and also to use more of the bands.

When you use your brains there is such a range of different exercises that you can do. I do wall push ups quite a bit, she suggested trying to do these from a kitchen cupboard as these are a little harder. So tomorrow I will start at 5 and build up.

Will keep you posted.

Nearly time for bed.

    Yes, variety is the spice of life. Try to always mix n'match your exercises to keep the body guessing. Sure beats the dreaded plateau.

    Seems to me that long, hot drive was definitely worthwhile. I'm sure you were glad you saw the exercise physio.

As for wall pushups, I find if I'm not up to doing any other form of exercise, I can always manage to do at least a few of those. I always imagined they would only help strengthen my arms and shoulders, but I was having a really good day a few days ago, and managed to do 100! I expected my arms and maybe shoulders to be feeling a little sore next day, but it was my abs which reminded me what I'd done!

I've found a lot of simple exercises online, some from Spark People, some from Youtube. I loved the exercises for seniors, it was the first time I've been able to manage to find a full body exercise routine which I could cope with - and it was all done from a standing position. That in itself was a first.
