In Response To: Re: Some thoughts on weight and health (Patti-O)
Much love to you, Patti, I hear you, loud and clear! Your plan sounds like a good one. What I did was to do just what I could: take a walk. I'm in the city, so I use blocks as my feedback (in the country, maybe landmarks or time would work the same way). I started with a walk around the block, once a day. After some time (a week or so?), I was able to up that to going around 2 blocks. And so on. When I could, I added a second walk, for two walks a day. Sometimes it's too late/dark, or my A daughter doesn't need such a workout as I do, so I walk "the hamster track", the block in front of our house, back and forth, back and forth. (That's not my favorite, but I can get into it if I have to.) I also, when I began with the walks, got dedicated about doing my stretches every morning (I was already pretty good about it, but I got determined), before anything else. I use a kind of Chinese internal yoga stretch routine, mixed with other things that feel good. Oh, now I remember. When I was starting, I also had some sacroilliac pain, which slowed me down a lot. I have a rebounder on my front porch, of all the strange places, and I'd get up there and just jounce a little, or a lot if I liked. Even that very minimal muscle/lung stimulation seemed to do the type O happy endorphin thing for me, because I always calmed and energized from that. Good luck, Patti.
