No more rest days

Friday, July 12, 2013

Yesterday I took a relaxing rest days. I became so depressed that I thought I couldn't achieve any of my goals. So, today I am back doing my exercises.

    It's ok to take a rest day if it's just a day! The body needs time to relax. Good job getting back at it!

    Makes a lot of sense to me!! I have multiple sclerosis and the times that I had attacks that paralyzed me and I just sat there upset, I did worse. GOOD FOR YOU doing your exercises!!! I want to see those fitness minutes adding up and remember that weight training counts and the arm bicycle counts too. AND there are teams here for chair exercises too. YOU CAN DO TI!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    if you do youtube videos,

there is a young gal that has 33 videos and goes by

She has videos of the beginning of her apt. and then progress...
maybe she will inspire you?
But it is up to you.
I found it informative so I could understand better.

    That was an interesting effect from a rest day. I hope you alternate exercises for different parts of your body, so a rest day for hamstrings means some arm exercises, and resting arms day means using a different muscle group. Maybe you just like to see progress every day. It was a big shock to your system and I would think some depression would be normal, grieving the loss of limb and learning new ways to deal with day to day life now. Please keep at the exercises. In time you will see progress.

    Rest days are important but they do NOT have to mean you don't do anything. Maybe you can do something totally different on one day - if you do strength training - doing upper body one day and the next lower body - if you normally jog, maybe on the rest day, you go swimming or bicycling. You can make a plan that allows your body to rest but not become STAGNANT.
