I can walk, and do squats and wall and counter pushups. They both hurt to do while I am doing them, but I do feel better afterwards.

I used to walk briskly & do pilates regularly until my osteoporosis problems started last november. Now after the parathyroid surgery I should be able to resume my exercise routine next month!

This pit bull is owned by the lady who lives next door. I suspect that her previous boyfriend is the one who turned the dog mean. One time before, I saw the dog get out and go racing across the street. It immediately attacked one of the neighbor's Labrador retrievers. The man went racing out also and started kicking the pit bull repeatedly. He seemed very rough in general with the dog. The woman thinks the pit is just wanting to make friends, but I don't think so since it attacks immediately. The new boyfriend seems more sensible. He came and lifted the pit bull off of Caspian and held it over to the side calming it. He promised to keep the dog on a leash every time it comes out from now on. He said he had experimented to see how she would do off leash, but obviously the experiment was a bust.

One thing I can do is climb stairs. When I first moved here, I wasn't sure I would ever get to go upstairs since I had been having problems with stairs. However, if I go up cautiously, making sure my toes are pointing forward so my knees are not stressed, I can do it. It has gotten to where at least once a day I go up and down the stairs to take Catherine's mail up. If I am briefly caring for Bella, I may go up and down several times, since I also have to care for my doggies' needs to go out.

PHYLLIS: It may be only 3 days a week, but that is a lot better then what I am doing, which is nothing. emoticon emoticon Phyllis, emoticon

NELLIE: I am so glad that you& your doggie did not get hurt in the Pit Bull attack. My personal take on Pit's is that how they act is dependant on how they are raised and treated as adults. A lot of folks (for reasons I do not understand) to things with them from birth to MAKE them mean & violent. About 8 years ago we took in a stray Pit Bull, found him on the step of our local library. No tags, no body claimed him, so we took him home. Even though we had 3 other VERY small dogs, he was never rough with any of them at all. He would run thru the house with them playing. He was very kind laid-back & gentle. We did not have any problems with him while company was there or even if just the mail lady came to the door. But I am not saying that we could not have had. I am pretty certain that if he though that anyone in our house or any of our other dogs & cats were in harms way, that he would have attacked the "threat". Sadily, after we'd had him about a year, the place where we lived banned Pit Bull's. So we had to take him to a Pit Bull rescue far way out in the country about 2 hours from where we lived. But I feel that he did go to a good home. We went to visit him again and he seemed to be doing great. After that I made many phone calls to check on his well fare. I was thrilled when told he and one of his "sisters" had been adopted together to go live in Florida. The last I heard, he was a very happy, healthy, wonderfully taken care of & loved dog. I was VERY glad to hear that.

EILEEN: I've thought about going to the Salvation Army pool to do "walking", as I suffer from a lot of pain if I do a lot of walking outside of water. But my problem is that our local pool keeps their water temperatures at 90 degrees. Which is WAY TOO hot for me. I have thyroid issues and doctor has told me to not get into hot water, as it makes me dizzy, weak & basically feel awful. He tells me to never take showers that are warmer then just a touch warmer then luke warm.

MAKE 2020 THE BEST YOU CAN.

REMEMBER, JESUS LOVES YOU--ALL THE TIME!!

Very frightening for you! My nephew has 4 pit bulls and even though he says they are calm, quiet babies, I just can't feel or learn to trust them!! We don't take our dogs with us when we visit the house.

As far as the exercise, I am sadly lacking in motivation right now. We have had an extremely busy winter and I am hoping to slow down now. I use the pool as much as I can for walking. I have neuropathy in my feet which is very painful for much walking. Pool walking is easy and actually better walking as you are using more muscles.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

Well, I didn't track this, but I can get back up from the ground after being knocked down while the neighbor's pit bull attacked Caspian my son's mixed breed dog that I am caring for. Poor Caspian didn't even attempt to defend himself, just lay there trembling. I think the pit bull didn't actually bite Caspian, but got his harness since it was pulled halfway off and he didn't have any blood or tender places. Phew!

I can walk, outside and indoors on treadmill. I DO feel better after I do it, have more energy. But I have a problem with motivating myself to do it. This has been going on for about a year now. I am trying so hard to get myself back to regular daily exercise. So far it is working about 3 days a week which is not enough. Sigh....

This topic is about Exercise you CAN do, and do you feel better after you do it. Feel free to post about any exercise you can do, no matter how small or insignificant it seems to you. Every little thing we do adds up. emoticon
