I'd like to join here. I'm a recently diagnosed diabetic with high blood pressure and I have to make exercise a priority for my health. I tend to be an all or nothing exerciser and I'm trying to change that. I recently aggravated my plantar fasciitis trying to get in shape and then stopped all exercise, instead of just the ones that hurt my feet. I also want to get better at daily functional activity through being more active by cleaning and other daily chores, etc, instead of sitting at the computer or tv.

I will give some thought to my goal and post that later.

Thanks for creating this group!

JaneX--You are more than welcome to join us here! I'm sorry no one said welcome earlier when you first posted. I've been away for a long weekend and this is the first time I've logged on since last Thursday. We really try to cheer each other on to meet simple efforts to get moving every single day--it doesn't have to be a big work out and I really encourage people to think of how they can incorporate movement from our everyday lives.

While I was away, I didn't do any of my workouts, but every day we went for a walk around the town we were visiting for some shopping, checking out restaurants for lunch, etc. Some of my friends went for a hike one day, but I skipped that because I'm still trying to get my ankles back in shape. This afternoon I'm starting some formal PT for my ankles, finally.


Goals: To be more capable, able to take part in active travel, and participate in new activities.
Interim goals: Stand up from seated position easily using just my feet, walk 2 miles without feeling it, climb 2 flights of stairs without getting winded, do a push-up (knees)

I don't feel like I'm making a ton of progress right now with my work out. I know I'm doing a lot better than I was at the beginning of the year when I started this. Probably the difference between where I was a month ago and now is just more incremental than between nothing and almost daily at the beginning. I'm getting close to meeting some of my interim goals, though, or seeing progress towards some others. And I keep doing something almost everyday, which was the big goal.

I really wasn't feeling it this morning, partly because I didn't sleep well last night. I just didn't have any energy, and it wasn't a big glucose drop/tapped out feeling. Just the blahs. I did manage to convince myself to do part of a workout because I didn't work out yesterday.

I keep hoping that doing a workout first thing everyday will get to be a built in habit. It felt like it was getting there for a while, but really most mornings, almost 4 months in, I have to talk myself out of bailing on it.

Oof. I had a lot of trouble with my workout this morning. I'm following a book and repeated most of the first level, because I didn't feel ready to move up to the next level. I went on and moved up this morning and I felt like I couldn't do half of it. Not like the exercises were hard or I could barely make it through, but flat out couldn't do them. The routine is to do each exercise for 30 seconds and then rest 30. Several of them I just found myself collapsing after about 15 seconds. Some days I feel like I'm making progress and then days like this I feel useless.

I've also decided to try to alternate days of working on push-ups, planks & squats with the book workouts and Pilates. I also want to start walking some. But doing all that, I start to feel like I've gone too long between each thing. I might have to add some short walks at a different time of day. I also need to be doing Ankle PT at least twice a day. So change-ups are coming for June, I just don't know what yet.

Goals:[/B] To be more capable, able to take part in active travel, and participate in new activities.
Interim goals: Stand up from seated position easily using just my feet, walk 2 miles without feeling it, climb 2 flights of stairs without getting winded, do a push-up (knees)
