Exercise Yourself July 1 ~ July 10
Will get this going for our gal on the move. Something we all need to be doing, moving these bodies.

Walk 3.12 miles, no workout today.

Thank you so much for doing the Exercise thread, Loretta, I forgot, dingle head here.

Was on my feet since 5 AM. Trying to get stuff done before the packers arrived.

Carried boxes, dug around in boxes in the garage, boxes that I didn't even know what was in them, since the flood of 1997, for heaven's sakes. Had stuff written on the outside, but it was wrong info.

Hope to see you tomorrow.

LoveMontana 07-01-2013 06:44 PM

Thanks for the start off, Loretta.

Hopefully Doris is doing OK with the last of the packing and those movers. It's such a stressful thing to do.

Did only an hour and a half walk this afternoon and used the light hand weights after dinner.

Loretta V 07-02-2013 10:58 AM

Doris I got a lol when I saw your new avitar.

Walk and workout today.

LoveMontana 07-02-2013 06:44 PM

Yes, that Avatar is so cute.

Too darned warm and extremely humid again to walk outside so I did an hour and a half of laps in Sam's club.

mykneesareback 07-02-2013 07:13 PM

Our exercise bike is stuck right in the middle of a bunch of large boxes, some with mirrors and stuff, dh tried to move them, but he would have hurt himself if he did, he is not like those professional people. Those movers pick up heavy boxes like they are nothing. Amazing, I'm impressed, so far.

So, we tore and pressed loads of boxes into flat forms, in order to help get the most out of the dumpster. It arrived before 8 AM, and was filled up by 8:30, so, I had to call them, and they sent the guy to unload it, and leave it there, to be filled again. The guy says he won't be back up here until Friday, so just to put bags next to it, and he will take care of it.

That's all I did, those danged boxes, my arthritic hands and wrists feel it tonight, dh says his hands hurt, too.

Anyway, that is my exercise for today. I'm online for some down time right now.

Have a good week, friends!

When is the actual departure date Doris? Sounds like you are getting a real workout.

Walk, no workout except for cleaning house.

LoveMontana 07-03-2013 07:56 PM

Yes Doris, when do you hit the road?

Loretta, it's so darned hot here too . Not very comfortable for walking because of the humidity.

Only did some laps in Sam's again and then did a bit of cleaning too.

Went to the gym 2 days in a row now - Yay me! - Did 30 minutes on the elliptical and the bike, both days.

LoveMontana 07-04-2013 12:03 PM

Just back from a walk in air conditioned comfort of the Mall. Hardly anyone was there, so it was very nice.

Loretta V 07-04-2013 05:40 PM

Out for walk, no mosquitoes but did see several deer.

Exercise workout upper and lower body 30 min.

Walk around local antique car show and day of celebration.

Made a trip to Metropolis, Il, home of Superman. Then went to Casino. Played for several hours on that same $20. Didn't bring any back but had a good time.

Loretta V 07-05-2013 09:45 AM

Walk 4.5 miles, exercise workout upper and lower body. Maybe some lawn mower pushing this afternoon.

LoveMontana 07-05-2013 11:46 AM

Did two hours worth of laps at the mall. Nice because hardly anyone was there.:cool:
The plan is to use hand weights this evening.

mykneesareback 07-05-2013 06:55 PM

Just walked down and up the hill to go to eat dinner at coco's, that's it~

Shalbrihil 07-05-2013 08:38 PM

I'm just doing wall pushups tonight.

Loretta V 07-06-2013 08:00 AM

Usual walk 4.6 miles after breakfast at local church. Very humid out there today.

Exercise workout upper and lower body 30 min

Shalbrihil 07-06-2013 03:29 PM

We got an early walk today before the fog lifted with the fur boys. Felt good to get that walk in. It's been awhile.

mykneesareback 07-06-2013 06:28 PM

Today it was over 10 hrs. in the car, only got out for potty breaks, lunch and dinner break, and that's it. We had lunch at that casino near Albuquerqui, so at least walked through the casino to get there, lol. My ankle and heel are worse, have to find a doctor after we move, think it's Achilles heel, and need a boot to wear for awhile, because I never rest it.

modon69478 07-06-2013 06:34 PM

Doris, I'm so sorry to hear that you're in some pain - don't hesitate to take some advil or some OTC medication. I don't think you take things like that on a regular basis so if you need some now, please take some in order to help you through this very stressful time.

Sending hugs your way,

Sharss 07-07-2013 09:27 AM

Doris, if possible can you apply an ice pack? Don't know if you're traveling with a cooler or not. I know several people who have had doctors prescribe Ibuprofin in 800mg doses for inflammation/pain. I take 600mg if necessary for my hip inflammation. Just the gel kind, not prescription.

Sharss 07-07-2013 09:42 AM

Haven't been doing too much in the way of exercising, but am getting on the ball a bit. I ordered a Jumpsport Rebounder so presently am just doing things to get me ready for when it's delivered - probably Wed. The reason being one has to work up time on the Rebounder, like starting 2 or 3 minutes a time doing the Health Bounce. I'd love to be ready to do a 20 minute workout video I found. It does come with a DVD workout too, but I don't know what that one is yet of course. This should be so easy on my hip joints!

So for the last four days I've been doing the Health Bounces on my bed. LOL My 14 yr old cat loves them!!! She just lays there looking up at me as she bounces up and down. It's pretty funny. Today I plan on doing three 5 minute Health Bounces plus Leslie's 1 mile walk.

How so silly to finally start exercising to prepare me for exercising the way I want to. :laugh:

mykneesareback 07-07-2013 07:58 PM

Just walked around the house, back yard, it's an upward slope at the house, that in itself would be helpful to walk often. It's hot, but windy, so it doesn't feel so hot, yet.

We are tired, but need to get busy tomorrow.

Take care, folks. All my weights, rebounder, weight bar are on the moving truck.

Exactly, Doris. :goodpost: Ice really helps as does script ibuprofen.

Just did about an hour walk with mom and came home. Did hand weights this evening.

Loretta V 07-08-2013 07:24 AM

Some good advice given, Doris. Take that pain rx for sure.

Walk 4 miles. No workout today.

mykneesareback 07-08-2013 06:40 PM

I've been taking aspirin now and then, haven't had time to sit with leg up and ice pack, always having to get up and move around. Went shopping today for a new bed, wound up buying a bed and dresser, and some bedding, but no mattresses. Walked this morning, but not any laps.

Loretta V 07-09-2013 12:23 PM

Hope your furniture showed up Doris.

Walk and workout. HOT and HUMID here in KY.

mykneesareback 07-10-2013 01:07 PM

Walked at the house, boy, it is a Big house, to us, any way! ha ha

Up and down the stairs here at our son's place. Going shopping tomorrow for house stuff, so will be walking at large stores. That's it!

LoveMontana 07-10-2013 01:25 PM

Have you heard about the moving truck Doris? Hope so.

Did three hours at Sam's club. That's all she wrote. Still too hot and humid to do much else.

Loretta V 07-10-2013 01:56 PM

Same-0 same-o

walk and workout. Did some grass cutting yesterday.

All times are GMT -7. The time now is 05:21 AM.
