It has been a while...

I can't do much in the way of resistance exercises at present, but what I can do, I will (New Year's Resolution...) and so I'll document them here as I do 'em.

Today, all I did was 2 sets of 20 fridge push ups. Er, no, not lifting the fridge - doing wall push ups against said fridge.

I'm also going to return to weekly documenting my steps. Not "walking around Australia" again, but I'll think about "walking" somewhere else.

Reporting in 2 weeks later...

I started the year so well, but it may have been a little too well. The back was already playing up, but 25/26K steps plus the one lot of push ups was just too much for my back, which completely "collapsed". I had about a week of mucho pain, which I got through with the help of my trusty hot water bottle and much codeine.

I have returned to doing the balance exercises at least twice a day, and am walking/hobbling/shuffling as much as I can without overdoing. It can be a delicate balance.

Week 1 average daily steps: 16711
Week 2 average daily steps: 12898

And it's been nearly 3 years. Sorry I've been neglecting you, gym log.

The balance exercises mentioned in my last post have well and truly gone the way of the dodo, since every time I try them - no matter which kind, and I have tried several different doctor recommended lots now - they manage to make my balance worse. I've had a few you beaut falls as a result. Fortunately I've broken no bones, although the bruises have been rather colourful.
My balance remains the same so I am going have to bite the bullet and buy a walking stick very soon now. Blech. But it's either that or just keep hanging onto Mark everywhere we go. It's not that I don't like taking his arm, but in this heat, a walking stick will be bit easier. I just don't want to look like a damn invalid.

Anyway, I have been exercising intermittently, but not enough, so I am trying yet again. I'm going to aim for Tuesdays and Fridays for a start. I still wear my trusty pedometer and am averaging 11 to 12K per day.

So, for today's effort:

Fridge push-ups: 15, 15
Partial squats: 10, 10
Ball crunches: 15, 15

Still had too much DOMS yesterday, mainly in my tummy muscles to manage any exercising. I did do my stretching but completely forgot about the glutamine. Remembered it today though, so lets see if it helps.

Fridge push-ups: 15, 15, 14
Partial squats: 12, 12
Ball crunches: 15,12 - tum still a bit sore
Ball leg curls: 15,12
