As far as walking goes, I’m in the same place I was last month what a surprise-
I’ve done the same things.
What’s the quote? Insanity is doing the same thing expecting different results? Then it’s a fact, I’m insane!
Last month, June 1st, this is what I said:
“To Do List:
Physical Therapy 6 days each week:
Ride stationary bike 20 min.
30 modified pushups
Walk every two hours using a cane
1 hour physical therapy 5 days/week
Sleep 7 hours each night (that’s what I need)
I can do it~ I know I can! Next month it will be fun to see my progress!
I did that for about a week.
For the rest I of the month, I rode my stationary bike for 20 minutes and did 30 modified pushups 6 days a week. The same thing I’ve been doing for two years.
I could tell you lots of excuses as to why I didn’t do anything differently, but excuses stink. (You need to know that MS showed up active in my June blood work. I tell you that not as an excuse, but to let you know that if I can, you can.)
We all need to assess our circumstances and plan accordingly. What ever our situation is, exercise is a must.
So I’ll just recommit to adding a smaller amount of basic physical therapy exercises to my usual 20 minutes of stationary bike riding and 30 modified pushups.
This is what it looks like:
20 sit to stands,
20 leg lifts from a sitting position.
Walk around the house with a cane 5 times a day
I spend so much time online (sitting), there is NO REASON not to do them. OK, Darlene Davis started an exercise challenge and I accepted. I won’t stop exercising!
