EXERCISE WEEK, Sept. 8 - Sept. 14
1 Attachment(s)
Let's go get up and do it, whatever we have time and energy to do this week, and with luck, the weather will change to something more comfortable.

mykneesareback 09-08-2013 11:49 AM

Running the mop and broom and laundry, lol. That's it.
Oh, and advising my dh as to where to plant the Magnolia tree in the back, and the Crepe Myrtle in the front yard..............:laugh:

Monday's Exercise:

Hand, wrist and Feet, ankle exercises

Some gentle PT on my knee under water in the bath tub

5lb arm weights short routine

Floor exercises, crunches and thighs

mykneesareback 09-09-2013 12:57 PM

Weights and weight bar this morning.

Nope, have not begun the hours of sitting on the bike yet, there are actually things to do, here, lol. Also, when I do it now and then, my ankle and big toe have pain. So walking, sideways dancing, is it for me for now.

dh is disappointed, since moving here, all those soccer games have gone to an NBC channel that you have to pay extra for, and Fox does not show them anymore, and this time zone means those games aren't on until the afternoon, and then very late at night, messes up his usual game plan. Our plan now is to walk the neighborhood, not just the alley, once it cools off.

Doris, Do you have one of those DVR things - that way you could tape them and then watch them whenever you wanted. It just wouldn't be in real time. I bet your son would know how to hook one up. Just an idea...


mykneesareback 09-09-2013 08:09 PM

Yes Michele, we have one of those things, but my dh refuses to learn to use one. He never would learn to use a VCR, either, nor does he ever touch a computer or the cell phone. And so it goes...............:laugh:

Shalbrihil 09-10-2013 09:03 AM

HAHAHA!! I've got a husband like that too Doris.

mykneesareback 09-10-2013 10:01 AM

yep Sharon, he was telling the garage door guy about it, when the guy says he sends the receipt for the job to our email address, and dh says, that he never uses it, but that I would print it out. That place even sends a photo of the tech who is coming to your house!!

We actually danced this morning, Rolling Stones, Mavarick's, and assorted early country artists, cha cha, and line dancing. That's it for today, except for kitchen counter stuff.

Loretta V 09-10-2013 01:26 PM

My friend John won and I pod at a church raffle and low and behold he is using it quite a bit. I am surprised that he latched on to it. He does have a cell phone but won't text.

You might enjoy walking the neighborhood, Doris. Are there sidewalks?

Walk and got the upper body done but need to get off my butt and get it moving NOW.

mykneesareback 09-10-2013 05:37 PM

Loretta, John is a smart man, I don't really even know what an ipod looks like, wouldn't know one if it was on the floor right now, in fact. lol If I ever get a more modern cell phone, I won't text, either. Have nothing to say in a few short words.
There are sidewalks here, yes, but some people use the street if they want to go fast, mostly men, in my estimation. The older women with doggies use the sidewalk. So far, everyone we meet is friendly or waves as you drive by, particularly in the alley.
Does John use the ipod while driving, is that what you do with it, listen to it instead of the radio?

Loretta V 09-10-2013 06:49 PM

John does not use it for music. He likes to get on line and check the weather, stock reports and play a game called slots. You need to have wi fi access to get on line and have a wireless router at home.

SuSUN 09-10-2013 06:50 PM

Walked with DD and the dogs around the pond and woods this morning for an hour.

Hand and wrist exercises

mykneesareback 09-10-2013 08:12 PM

See, Loretta, right there I'd be up the creek, don't even know what an Ipod really is, lol.

Susan, you used up a lot of energy today, you deserve to sit and chill out watching hopefully something good on tv!!!

Have a good night!

Loretta V 09-11-2013 12:42 PM

Late walk in the heat, 3.9 miles, slow pace
Yet to do workout but WILL get it done.

mykneesareback 09-11-2013 01:15 PM

We found our way to that voting office in McKinney, parked too far, but doesn't matter because we wanted to walk. Had a good time with the people there. Then they drew us a map to find the middle of town, the square where all the shops and restaurants are, so we found our way there ok. Had lunch and walked the whole square, it would be nicer to do it again when cooler weather finally hits here, next month is what they tell us.

So, that's what I did, walk McKinney square, lol. Putting groceries away now, due to shopping at Wal Mart, kids will be here 2 nights, and Sunday, gotta buy their "stuff".

I know you are waiting for cooler weather, Loretta, Mary, Linda and Susan, Sharon and Michele!! I wonder where Ron went, maybe to the Men's threads.

Shalbrihil 09-11-2013 01:34 PM

We have been out walking the boys for the last couple of days now. My legs have been doing pretty good. Slow and steady for me but so far so good.

mykneesareback 09-11-2013 02:05 PM

Sharon, I'm glad that your legs are not being so painful to you lately!! :up:

Am still waiting for the appt. with the orthopedist for my foot/heel spur. I called yesterday to remind them, but still nothing.

SuSUN 09-11-2013 07:01 PM

Thanks Doris, I did watch TV last night and enjoyed it.

Walked for an hour with DD and the dogs this morning in the steamer weather that is back. Yuk!

Shalbrihil 09-12-2013 09:43 AM

We're back in the 70's so we'll be heading out early for our walk. I want to get a roast so I can do a pot roast like the Pioneer Woman did on her show. Boy it looked good and so easy with the slow cook method. It went into the oven roasted for 3-4 hrs at 275 degrees. That thing just fell apart. Exactly what I like.

Doris it's a slow walk but with the dogs pulling me along I do work up a sweat. :D

mykneesareback 09-12-2013 12:35 PM

Good for you, Sharon........and I bought a cheap pot roast yesterday because you mentioned it, had forgotten how to make one, almost. Found thin cut chuck steak at Wal Mart for $5.99, so I've got it in the pot right now, with onions. Slowly cooking.

Did weight bar, 6 lb. weights, and squats without weights. Jack LaLanne chair exercises. Laundry is getting done, while I straighten up the place for when the kids come later on.

Loretta V 09-12-2013 12:58 PM

Did not do workout yesterday.

Got the routine done today.

I love pot roast too.

SuSUN 09-12-2013 04:08 PM

Walked only 40 mins as the heaven's opened so we had to run to the car. Hah! ;)

Some gentle stretches for my right knee, tissue damage takes longer to heal.
It's been a month now.:dunno:

Yum...Did You say Pot Roast...:yummy:

Loretta V 09-13-2013 09:41 AM

Beautiful weather for walking this morning. 3. 5 miles.

Need to do workout, will do it later today.

mykneesareback 09-13-2013 01:00 PM

We wound up walking Wal Mart, from end to end, whether we wanted to or not, and then went to Target, and did the same thing, lol.

Washed dishes by hand, bought a new, larger pot to cook potatoes in, since the small one I normally used didn't make enough potatoes for the kids at all! lol

That's it for me for today. Cleaning up the area where Silas plays. It's warm and more humid today.

SuSUN 09-13-2013 03:21 PM

Doris, those stores are sure providing a climate controlled area to exercise huh? A Bonus!

Short walk with the dog today on the bike path.

Floor exercises

Short arm n shoulder weight routine

mykneesareback 09-13-2013 09:14 PM

Susan, after living here for only about 2 months, I vote that there is a Holiday for the Birthday of whomever invented A/C !!! I can't imagine living here without it, and all the clothes people had to wear in the "old" days, and just trying to wash the dust off, good heaven's !!!

SuSUN 09-14-2013 02:45 PM

Doris, I hear ya and I have to get used to the cold in the Winter how you did, then in the summer I must have my a/c. Spoiled brats or what are we? :D

Walked the Park for about an hour, then sitting at a picnic table for about another hour.

Walked the dog for 20 mins on the bike path

Waist twists and stretches.

:eek: Only 20lbs to go! :dunno:
