Glad you're on the mend, Nawchem! Also, I just noticed that you unintentionally worked out on Sunday--bummer about the car. Hope all it needed was a jump start.

I spaced out and missed yesterday, so today I got back to working out first thing so I don't get distracted.

Thanks for this challenge CityGirl8. I feel so much more fit, and maybe it was better for me to start slower anyway. I've been doing exercises to warm up the muscles I stretch, I've got a good improvement in my flexibility.

Is your ankle improved? Have you noticed benefits?

It has improved, but honestly I've really been slacking on the ankle PT part of my goal. I was just noticing that this morning. However, I'm definitely getting some flexibility back--it's much easier to go downstairs--and it hurts less and less often. I'm going to have to make sure I work the PT into my routine better.

I'm really feeling pleased about how often I've managed to get something done. What I'm doing could probably be best described as "mini-workouts." I only do about 10-12 minutes everyday. But I'm meeting my goal of getting some movement in everyday and avoiding the gym, which I hate like the plague. Establishing this as a habit is probably the most important part of making a long-term change.

It's really made a difference having you here. Hopefully, if we keep going, some other people will join us.
