Great going!

Today I managed to get in another bike ride before work. Good thing. Not only is it getting dark earlier, it was raining when I got home.

My husband came with me and had to go and try and show me up for the last part. He passed me, so I passed him and beat him home. He complained I wore him out. I told him it was his fault for passing me.

Water Aerobics sounds fun. A co-worker of mine does that and said it is actually quite a workout, but fun too.

Today, most of my activity was the sort that Karen can do. Church, using my computer, sitting and talking.

Yesterday, though, I did a lot of cycling - about 90 min. in all. Plus I gathered tomatoes from the garden.

Just hang in there. It may take a long while, but you will get past this and back on with your regular activities and more!

diane love i just wanted to make you smile.did it work?sometimes you have to try things with humour or cry.even chair exercise are out as the slightest raising my arms etc but strain on the stitches in my belly etc.but i use humour to carry me through.in fact i will use that as my positive thing to say about myself today.wish you all luck with your exercise,muscle soreness etc,etc,etc.

karen (gwyneth the celt for the pink vikings)

if at first you don´´t succeed,try try again.

heaviest weight-330lbs
start weight sp-270.4lbs
goal weight-155lbs

if i was worth my weight in gold i would be a millionair.my riches are measured by other standards and are worth far more than any gold.

we cant become what we need by remaining what we are.

Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love mo

LOL, I don't think putting your feet up counts, Karen!

Can you do any ST? How about chair cardio?

Maybe until you get your doctor's OK, you will just have to content yourself with other challenges and activities such as posting positive things about yourself, finding recipes, posting money saving tips, visiting Spark pages, sorting through clutter, writing e-mails...

Great, I like this one. I don't count a lot of my activity, because it isn't technically cardio. But I'm outdoors a lot now that the weather is more sensible and we haven't had rain in awhile. I cover a quite a bit of ground when I'm watering, etc., so my indoor workouts might be shorter, but I actually do quite a bit more afterward.

Not all exercise has to be intensive cardio!

"cholesterol levels are related to the amount of activity and not the intensity of exercise. The more minutes you exercise per week, the more your cholesterol levels will improve, even if accompanied by a minimal weight change."

"Perform gardening, yard work, heavy house cleaning, or home-repair activities."

Did you do something active today?
Post here.

Try and do something active for at least 30 min. at least 5 days a week.
