Exercise and Freggies

Monday, April 15, 2013

The shingles have really sapped my energy. I think I am pretty much over them. I have tried to walk 25-40 minutes the last week. Today I walked 30 minutes and was exhausted. I feel like I should be able to do that at 74 and am not looking forward to trying to get back in shape. I think I will try to break my exercise up into 2 sessions a day.

That is enough of that. This week on our Daisy challenge we are supposed to try to eat 5-9 servings of freggies. So far I have eaten 5 for 2 days and 4 for one day. Yay for me!!! I think I may be eating too much fruit. On the Daily Nutrition Feedback, the graph where it says we should be eating carbs for half our daily carb/fat/protein breakdown, I have been eating about 3/4's of total in carbs. I guess I need to cut back on the fruit and increase my veggies.

Some day I may get this figured out lol. emoticon

    I like the shorter Fitness session idea! A little bit, spaced throughout the day! Good plan! May God renew your strength soon!

    Glad you are starting to feel better. Each day you will get stronger and build on what you did the day before.

    emoticon It is a process (figuring it out); never ending I suspect. Sounds like you are doing great to me. I'm sorry you've been dealing with the shingles, I somehow missed that. Glad you are on the mend. Regardless, I've found spacing my exercise out in 10-12 minute sessions throughout the day has been very beneficial. I think it's keeping my metabolism rev'd up. Of course I have longer sessions when in yoga class or gardening and on Sugar walks. But those 10 minute sessions early in the day get me going. Be well.
