I have just started chair marching, but I do it on my planning period and at lunch.

I do mine in front of the TV or the computer. If I change it up I don't get as bored. When I am having a good day and it's not 100 degrees outside, II will go outside and walk around in the yard.

I am limited to pool workouts right now. I found that in the deep water I can arrange myself to sit with my noodle under myself like a chair and have more movement. I can do marching movements without the pain of sitting in a chair. emoticon

I like that idea, myself because I have bad knees and that may be useful to myself. Thanks for that note in general PONY FARMER.

and thanks for the encouragement, JUDITHWITHROW .... I really appreciate it!

I just had this idea that might help. Do your marching on a pillow, so your feet have a cushon to break the step. It might be worth a try. Hope it helps.

Computer time...but it is problematic as my lower back is in very painful shape most days. I do at least 10 minutes each day no matter what. Sometimes stand and do 'core exercise' with marching in place for 5 minutes. Its a real challenge.

While working on the computer - I'm on it at least 7hrs a day!!
Sometimes while on the phone
Yesterday - in the Doctor's waitingroom
Next week I'll be doing Chair Marching during my 4hr trip each way

I also - march in place on occasion -while chopping veg for meals, or while stirring a cooking pot,or while waiting for the microwave - I find standing still for a time I get very sore - but marching on the spot while I do things makes it easier to stand for longer - and being weight bearing exercise is another great form of exercise and really helps balance too - You don't have to lift your legs far while doing things - just lift the feet gently - you will find itmakes a lot of difference to your ability to stand for a time!!

Hi team...I joined last week and am loving this team. Share where you get in you 10,000 chair marching steps.

I thought there is no way I can get in 10,000 since my feet are very painful right now but I am doing it!
