exercise regime

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

I was not accepted into a local fitness and dietary program because of the requirement to walk.
However, I did see an exercise physiologist who has now given me 3 simple exercises to do on a daily basis. The good things are that they can be done seated, and so will not aggravate my knees, as previously happened.
Another potential win was the fact that he said he could prepare an exercise program for my wife.
If both of us have our own program, then we can end up spurring each other on.
the dietary side of things will be maintained thru my involvement with Sparkpeople and the associated tracking, hints and encouragement that I get from my teams and Sparkfriends,

    Glad you found someone that could give you exercises to get you started. Those chair exercises I have discovered can almost at times give you a better work out then moving with your feet. To have your wife be your exercise partner, how perfect!

    Sorry to hear you were not accepted into that program Richard, but perhaps that's a good thing??? There's a reason for everything.

    But one awesome thing out of today is at least you can now do some exercise and what better way than to have the motivation to beat your wife lol You better be careful though she may beat you lol Friendly competition can be a great motivator to try that little bit harder.

    Being able to do some simple exercises that won't aggravate your knees will be awesome.

    Very happy for you Richard, that's great news. emoticon

    I'm so glad that you didn't deter you from pressing forward. I know that you and your wife can do this because you have to many people in the Spark community cheering you both on.

    Well done. Glad to hear you both can build together as a team. It has made my journey easier with my partner on board and we don't even do the same workouts or times. But we cheer on every progress! You will succeed!!
