Many of us have been there. I started out in a wheelchair. Take your time. You can do it!

I just read the article.. omgoodness... just what I needed to read today!!

First, I am new to the group. So, I am just catching up. I have a broken foot. I broke in Jan and continue to have problems. I just had a podiatrist appt this afternoon and still no green light! And, I am apparently not going to get one for some time. Sooo... I can't get on my treadmill. If I can a stationary bike, I could do that. I don't. Reading this article gave me hope. Thank you so much for posting. Fantastic ideas that even I can do with a cast!!

My mother and grandmother were handicapped and had lots of equipment to help with exercise and activities of daily living. People are often surprised at how much there is.

There are some nice articles here on SP with ideas for building ctivity into even day-long sit down jobs and driving and the like. (I just read one this morning) There are also articles with activities for people bound to wheelchairs and with other disabilities here.

I just received the "Squeeze it in" DVD that Coach Nicole reviewed on a blog a few weeks ago. I haven't watched it yet because my lousy back problems have gotten in my way, but when I went to the link from SP, they have 5 sample activities and they are all exercises youcan do while shopping at the grocery store. I love the creative people who can come up with these ideas, to help people like me who aren't naturally physical by nature.

What to do (only skimmed the article) when your job keeps you in a chair for the majority of the day?

Thin people are usually highly active people. They often eat a lot.

Thank you for sharing the wonderful article. It must be true, because my thin husband is always moving but never does "organized" exercise. It helps me to feel that all my trips bringing wood in from the porch for the wood burner is worth it.
