Men went with us women tonight (took rolloff truck) and moved one desk and two sections of file cabinets.............15 file drawers to each section!!

I am counting that as my activity tonight, but I blew the diet. Took everyone out to Subway for supper.

6 more desks and some 4 drawer file cabinets, and it will be done........Monday is going to be official move date.

It's a start Lizzie. walking LD can be start and stop too. I started just walking back and forth when he stops. I hope your stroller can do 360's so you can do that.

Deb have a good work out?

Karen did you move more furniture?

Misty is busy going party to party

Jazz how was your day.

I went out with Mom and got a lot of my walking in then. Also helped put together a glider. I sweat so I claim that as doing something too

8060 steps and 37 very active minutes. Not too bad considering I spent 8 am through 4 pm in a training forced to sit all that time and listen to presenters.

Good night, everyone

Karen, have you tried listening to alpha brainwave CDs before bed? They put you in alpha state pretty quickly, relax you, and you end up sleeping soundly. Great stuff.

Cheryl, thanks for the link. I've always wanted to start meditating but descriptions seem confusing. The video looks like it would be very helpful.

Personal best for me today - 12,034 steps, 5.2 miles, and 87 very active minutes. Wooohooo! Not bad for a very heavy person who isn't even in Twoterville yet. I would've had about 1,200 more steps except I forgot to wear my FitBit while shopping in one of those big box stores.

A dear friend of mine posted this on Facebook, and I thought I would share it here to give us some extra motivation to keep exercising. It addresses mainly menopausal women, but applies to all.

Quote:
Tired Of Feeling Tired?

Fatigue
I am so tired all the time
When I ask women to tell me the worst thing about menopause, the most common answers are ◾I feel tired all the time
◾I am exhausted
◾I have no energy

If I were to ask you about the menopause symptom that troubles you the most, you may say hot flashes or mood swings or disturbed sleep or you may say that it is a combination of some, or many, of the 30 or more menopause symptoms. But….it is likely that you would agree that the end result of the symptoms that you are experiencing, is fatigue and or lack of energy.

I could go on from here to discuss how the imbalance of the hormones in your body, is the underlying cause of your symptoms and the fatigue and lack of energy that results from them. And, I could discuss how to re-balance them. But I am not going to do that. I have written enough about that previously.

In this post I am going to tell you about something simple and easy for you to do, that can reduce your fatigue and boost your energy level.

When you feel tired, and lacking energy, the best way to energize yourself is to take a walk…..not a nap! Researchers reviewed 70 studies that examined the effect of exercise on 6,807 subjects who were fatigued. 90% of the studies showed that exercise reduces fatigue by as much as 65%. They found that exercise increases energy by 20%.

You may well say now “but the way I feel….the last thing I want to do is to exercise. I feel exhausted.” I can understand that. Tired people generally do not want to put on their sneakers and go for a run.

But the exercise involved here is much less strenuous that going for a run for a few miles. Did you know that even getting up from the couch and walking around the room will help to reduce fatigue? It will get you moving, which is the key. Just a 10 or 15 minute walk can do wonders for reducing your fatigue and increasing your energy level.

When you exercise to boost your energy level, you want to do low intensity exercise. Low intensity exercise boosts your energy even more than if you were to do moderate intensity exercise. When you do high intensity exercise, it saps your energy and makes you feel tired.

How does low intensity exercise boost your energy?

Any exercise that you do, increases your red blood cell count and the amount of glucose (blood sugar) that is transported to the cells of your body. Glucose is transported to the cells of your body in your blood and it provides the cells of your body with energy. This helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. When your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores. But….there is more to exercise than just this.

Almost every cell in your body has a small structure called a mitochondria. They are often referred to as the “powerhouse” of the cell. Mitochondria produce energy from the food that you eat. Exercise increases the number of mitochondria in the cells of your body. When you don’t exercise, the number of mitochondria in your cells actually declines. In other words, the more mitochondria you have, the more energy you have. A recent study has found that increased mitochondria in the body, as a result of exercise, reduces fatigue.

Having read this post, you now have a choice to make. You can continue to talk to yourself, and others, about how tired you are …. and do nothing to reduce your fatigue …. or you can begin to take “steps” (pun intended), that will reduce your fatigue and increase your energy level. What choice are you going to make?

Good post Jazz. I have also been reading about low intensity exercise being better if you aren't a trained athlete. Many people are over aerobicized. We are probably reading the same person. congrats on your personal best

I did my Primal workout and my 10000 steps.

Great job on the workouts, Cheryl

I'm not sure where my friend copied this article from. i agree with you on overaerobicizing ....may not be good for the heart, either.....

Would you mind sharing who you are reading? I would really like to read up more on this. I'm pretty happy with the walking right now. I know I need to add strengthening soon, already have the 8 lb weights. But even when I'm much slimmer, I think I'll stick to walking, I enjoy it quite a bit.

Marks Daily Apple Primal Blueprint workout. In baby steps. I work up to some intensity but never too intense. That just ends up making me hurt and tired with my fibro. But 4 exercises 2 x a week. Walk or play 3-5 hours week and sprints 1 x a week or every 10 days- may not be able to do this part. I haven't looked at the diet part yet. I am trying to incorporate 1 thing at a time. I started with the walking 10000 steps/ day and did ok. Now I am try ing the exercises but not intensely, just comfortably. I will see how my body does.

Great new avi, Deb!

I'm done with 10K steps and 74 very active minutes so far.....But considering it's only 4:15, I'm hoping for another 1K or more by bedtime.

Cheryl, the new plan sounds exciting - an all-around kind of program with the weight training and toning.

11,000+ steps and 74 very active minutes today.
