Well, I haven't been good at going out for walks lately. But I do try to move around as much as possible every day. It is surprising how many steps I can take just by doing the errands. Walking through the grocery aisles takes a lot of steps!

Mary Beth, you are right even housework is good. Sometimes I just get upset with myself for not following a routine no matter what. It is silly and unhealthy to be that way. My only walking buddy would be a young man of 52 with a very bad heart problem. I would be walking one step to his fifteen if we tried to walk together now. Such is life.

Finally!!! I feel better, and although I'm not 100%, I can do something around the house and garden. Still have my guys do the heavy lifting though. Was even able to train for a little this week: half a session, then 3/4 of the class, which is better than nothing. Feels good!
Have a great weekend everyone!

Try to do your least favorite chore instead, just the thought makes me want to rather exercise...

I'm with you there Linda. I do the same thing. That's when a walking buddy comes in handy - no excuse when you make plans to meet at a certain time to do a walk. My buddy and I go through spurts - we get busy and wrapped up in other things but after a while when we notice that we have not dropped any weight, then we get back into the routine again.

My philosophy is to keep on moving - if no time for a walk, then exercise in whatever way we can throughout the day. Even stretches can do a world of good!

I try to walk, but fin myself saying I have so much to do. I am really aware I could do it better if I walked. Sometimes my brain and my needs get disconnected.

Threw out my back last Saturday and was unable to do much of anything. For 24+ hours I am able to walk without a cane and no pain pills either! Things are looking up from here. Can't wait to get back to my normal exercise.
Will play in a duet with my son in church tomorrow: violin & guitar.
Have a great weekend everyone!

I could not find my yoga for arthritis DVD so went to library and got one for heart. Should do the trick until I unpack/find mine.

Went to my Rheumatologist last week. Besides my labwork - which was fine - she asked me to slow down even more than I already have in the past few years... sigh. Well, let's see!
My right shoulder decided to not cooperate today, so I did most of my work with my left arm. I've been doing that for years, so it just is some extra exercise for my brain as far as accuracy and coordination goes. Since I have to take my son along to work, I treated him to some bowling with his friend, who lived kinda on the way. And just for the fun of it, I was bowling with my left arm. The girl was also left-handed and quite awkward in her movements, so she enjoyed, that she beat me by a point in the first of 3 rounds. I was surprised how fast we can adapt! By the end of the 3rd game I doubled my points!
ok, ok! we had the bumpers up (usually I bowl a similar number right-handed without any bumpers. But we had fun all the same, and that's what counts!

Hi ClaraL., Welcome here!
It seems you have been reading my diary or something when I was that age, and my problems seemed to manifest themselves quite clear and painful. The (temporary) loss of wht you love and now am rarely able to do is all to familiar. It takes time to slow down and pick your priorities and your new bouindaries. After 10 years I am at a point where I try to see the good things on a rainy and gloomy day. I can't even remember the last time I was pain free for even half a day...
My work is very physical: In-home maintenance, landscaping and teaching Karate to 3-6yr olds (among other things). And often times I cry at night, because I can't afford to call in sick, and I don't want to let my friends/clients down either. They need me as much as I need them. But by calling it quits after dinner and putting my legs up, together with a good night sleep So far I didn't have to call in at all this year. I made my aching body move. slow and gingerly at first, always to the limit of where discomfort begins. And I have been granted sufficient health to perform what was REALLY important that day. I don't care if all I do is plop on the couch after work. I learned to delegate my chores onto my family in parts, and they are nice enough not holding a messy house against me for a few days.
Long story short: count your blessings, for whatever short time you are able to do what you like and need to.
My (much older) friend and I are joking at times, what a blessing it is to learn to pace yourself appropriately at a (rather) younger age. This gives us the opportunity to age gracefully and withouta grumpy attitude...
Again: Welcome and have a great weekend - EVERYBODY!

Our bathroom project is finally coming to an end! It looks like a Million Bucks! We can already take showers and use the toilet, just the sink decided to continue leaking...

My son is finally out of school and my client cancelled work for today. SO we took the opportunity to catch up with the garden, before we enjoyed 3 rounds of bowling where we met our old friend from last year again. I was surprised that I was even able to hold the ball, after my shoulder took a break for the last 2 days. So the first game was a mere house number, by the second game I seemed to find my balance again and the 3rd one was not my best either, but better than before.

So you see, not that I really have a choice but being even more active than before.

Hi everyone,

I would like to introduce myself.
I am 31 and have been suffering from an inflamed knee joint for over 2 years now, and for a while both of my elbows have also been affected. The doctors don't really know why and call it idiopathic, which is not a lot of help.

Anyway. I used to be a keen runner, loved yoga, and zumba, and kickboxing, and any kind of dancing you can think of. I get so so so frustrated and I just want my old life back. I am sure lots of you here can empathise.

On top of that I have gained a good 26 pounds (12kg) over the last year, so my overall experience in myself is... ready to be improved upon! I just don't know where to start. I do know all the principles, like, eating fresh and nonprocessed foods, drinking enough water, reducing sugar as much as possible, getting good sleep. I even lost a lot of weight with a low carb diet last year, but when I wanted to start this again, I almost fainted and my work had to call an ambulance (not a nice experience).

Sorry my first appearance here is so gloomy... I am normally quite an upbeat person I think. Just, I have days when I find it really, really difficult, and I look forward to getting some help - and giving some, too! Doing this stuff alone is insane. We have to help each other. x

Hi Everybody! How's it going?
Weight loss sure is a challenge for me. I seem to always yo yo back and forth. I'm trying to exercise more, but I think my eating habits are causing problems. It's tough when one has a husband who loves to cook. He doesn't quite adapt to what my needs are - his meals are so very tasty. Oh well, I am a happy person and I'm not living with a whole lot of pain any more since having had the hip replacement. Always try to think positive!

Yay! We finally get somewhere with our bath! painted the ceiling, worked some more on the walls (they're almost ready for the paint and Hubby put up the first tiles on the wall. starts to look like a bath again. Body even allowed me after all that work to train tonight, but now I'm done for today and that's ok. Gotta give that loyal thing some time to replenish for tomorrow.
Good Night everyone!

Hi everybody, hope you are having a good day. It is nice and sunny here in Ontario. I haven't had much exercise yet today but am hoping to go for a walk this evening. Had a rest this afternoon - yesterday was a long day for me - went on a bus trip to go see a baseball game with two of the individuals that I support.

despite extremely painfully swollen joints, I dragges myself to Blackbelt Seminar (quarterly) It only took 2 Pain pills and I actually made it through without too much trouble. Since I didn't have the truck available I took the bicycle back home (4 miles). It was beautyful weather and a nice cooldown (in a way).

Wow, you guys rock!
Just signed my son and me up for summer bowling. Was a lot of fun last year. Hope his shoes still fit...
Now it's almost time to change and get ready to teach my little Karate-Kids. They can be sooo cute - when they pay attention. But they always make me smile and that's always a good way to end a busy day.

If you want to be in your kids' memories tomorrow,
you have to be in their lives today.

but a manner of traveling.

Hi everyone, Looks like you all are having a pretty nice day. emoticon I took the stairs at school most of the day instead of the elevator. I walked in the school yard for 1/2 an hour too! This is the night I babysit the grandkids. They are very cute. My grandson is 7 and my grand daughter is 6 and if she has all her Homework done I told her we can paint our nails tonight meaning she's painting mine LOL emoticon . That will be fun! I'll keep them tomorrow but Saturday I'm going for an actual manicure emoticon . Well, today is a good day! Not too much pain, YAY! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am hoping that all this walking is soon going to pay off - I really want to see some results on the weigh scale. However, I can see that my body is adapting - can feel my hip bones. Another beautiful day here - more like spring, not too hot and not too cold. Went for a walk, did my errands, two loads of laundry and hung some of it outside to dry, a little bit of gardening, some housework. Wow, I guess I have some energy today! I have a friend coming over for coffee around 3 pm so I better see what else I can accomplish before she arrives.
Have a great day everyone.

Enjoyed watching my hubby work today... hihihi

Beautiful day today. We did get some rain yesterday to cool things down a bit. It is currently 12 degrees Celcius here, nice breeze coming through. Yesterday it was I think 20 or 21 C.
I have done really well with walking today - the pedometer tells me I am over 10,000 steps. emoticon

Hi there.
It's a really humid day here in Ontario. Sun is shining this morning, but it is expected that we will be having thundershowers this afternoon. Maybe rain will cool things off a bit to make it more like spring. Seems we just go from winter into summer, with hardly anything in between.
I went out for a walk with a buddy but was glad to get back home as the humidity was making my eyes water and I got pretty thirsty. Now I am getting ready to go to a pot luck lunch and then the group are going to see a play, "Church Basement Ladies".

Thanks! Happy Memorial Day!
Finally, the walls are stripped bare and ready to be waterproofed...
Found a mummyfied rat between the studs!
My shoulder gave up half through the day, so lets see what I can find to make it better over night...

Day 3 of the bathroom-demolition-derby is over...
with every day, a new project arises from the 'wall of the pandora' ...
But in the end it'll be all worth it. So far I'm holding up ok. a slight overcast keeps us comfortable during the work.

Glad to see everyone is having a good day. My husband and I went miniature golfing. Since he was a Marine they gave Us a free ride in the go karts! We had a nice time that we finished down at the beach boardwalk. What a nice day! emoticon

watched my son ride in the Strawberry Festival Parade with his Teacher. Very special day! While he enjoyed free rides all day I helped at our church booth, bagging goldfish (live ones!) for a few hours.
How do I log THAT?! hahaha

My church had a spaghetti dinner/movie night. We watched "The Ultimate Gift". It was an excellent movie. Goes to show that money is not everything that life has to offer.

Had a physically good day, got a lot done - probably too much...
Hit a lot of roadblocks during my day, which was annoying, but the kids at the dojo made all up for it, and I was able to end my day with a smile and a good belly laugh.
And now I may allow myself to plop on the couch to enjoy what's left of the evening.

Did you get the cleaning/organizing all done? I assume so when you say woo hoo.
Way to go!
My house is pretty quiet with the hubby being away on a fishing trip. Maybe I will find some time to do some cleaning/organizing in my home this week. Won't be till Wednesday or Thursday though cause I go to work next two days.
