EXercise WEEK, Nov.17 - Nov. 23

I didn't follow my own advice last week at ALL, bummer to me.

We start anew, as best we can, and take our lumps :shake: At least, I will and I have.

I've done the chair exercises and weights so far today, will see what happens tonight, trying to squat is not possible or practical right now.................;)

Thanks Doris for our start up. I love the quote about walking our own road.

Nothing formal today.

SuSUN 11-17-2013 05:19 PM

Thanks Doris great quote and pics.

You can only do what is practical right now as your foot begins to heal.
You still do more than me and I have both feet. Ha!

Leg exercises only today.

Loretta V 11-18-2013 08:40 AM

Walk for an hour. No workout today

SuSUN 11-18-2013 02:45 PM

Lovely Walk in the woods with DD and the two dogs for about an hour and half. It was windy and fine rainy but the trees were a great wind breaker so made for a comfortable walk.

Today is counter push ups day, kitchen, bathroom, and the washer in the laundry room, all at different levels. Had some bad cramps in the other leg last night, due to the steroid med, it warns of quick Potassium loss. Didn't sleep well after that episode. That's it for today, taking a break on using the legs.

Loretta V 11-19-2013 03:57 PM

Walk and workout finished today. Doing last of clean up at my apartment. Glad that my storage unit is close by. That will come in handy. But I think I'd rather get a new one (funnel) instead of looking for my old one. Too much searching.

My son took down all of my drapery hardware and all of the screws and things are in one box.

I am enjoying being here with John. It is nice to have a companion.

mykneesareback 11-19-2013 05:12 PM

Yes Loretta, that's wonderful!! My mother just told me last night, it's good to have someone to talk to, whenever you want to, she has always missed that since my Dad passed away. :shake: :love: That is a great picture of you, too!

I didn't do any more exercise today at all!

SuSUN 11-19-2013 05:51 PM

Arm and shoulder weights routine.

Leg exercises

Walking around the Mall with 3 GFs after sitting having coffee. It was just at the strolling pace so no cardio.

Jack LaLanne chair exercises, mostly doing the right side ones, but not so much the left side, lol. 6 lb. weights. Walking up and down the incline up to our house out front, keep looking for the mail car to come by anyway and checking out the plants.

Loretta V 11-20-2013 03:22 PM

Got the whole job done today, walk and exercise workout.

Actually that is a picture of my sister, Roberta, at our Thanksgiving gathering in 2011.

mykneesareback 11-20-2013 04:44 PM

Well, it fooled me, Loretta, and I couldn't get it larger to see clearer :) You can sure tell you are sisters, though!! :heart:

LoveMontana 11-21-2013 07:53 AM

Wow Loretta, you and your sister look quite a bit alike. Happy you are enjoying your new place and have John as a companion.:hugs:

Not easy to do much exercise with that boot on your foot.:console:

Been walking every day, but have not been on the computer much. It is very nice just enjoying real life for a change.

Heading out now to walk at the Glen...Might just do the downtown area and will do the light hand weights later.

Loretta V 11-21-2013 02:17 PM

How is that foot doing Doris. Is the boot helping?

Walk, beautiful sunrise today.
Workout upper and lower body.

SuSUN 11-21-2013 06:04 PM

1 hour Walk with DD and her dog. My little guy is getting too old for the long romp now.

mykneesareback 11-22-2013 01:26 PM

Walked around our house, up and down the hilly part, looking for a Christmas flag that blew away during this wind "even", but didn't find it, even going up the street. Did sort of squats today, and counter pushups, and light weights only. That's it.....

Yep Susan, when the doggies get older, they are like us, not enjoying long walks up and down, no matter all the interesting smells...........our bulldog simply laid down, and refused to move another step!

Loretta V 11-22-2013 01:47 PM

Exercise workout but no walk due to an all day rain.

Temperatures are falling tonight and we are in for some cold weather.

SuSUN 11-22-2013 07:46 PM

Walk 1.5 hours with DD and her dog in the woods.

mykneesareback 11-22-2013 07:51 PM

That is a cute kittie, Susan!

Do you think your daughter and you will find a new place to live, that is near a forest or woods to walk through some day? Wouldn't that be nice? :shake:

mykneesareback 11-23-2013 05:35 PM

I just now got in here, didn't do anything special, washed all the tins, and daughter in law got the old wooden orange crates, climbed the ladder and stood on the kitchen counter to put the crates up, I handed her stuff, and she placed them, that's all I did. Just laughed and kept grandson busy all afternoon, but did cook and so forth. Nothing!!

LoveMontana 11-23-2013 05:59 PM

Didn't do too much since it was really windy. Did walk for an hour at Wegman's and came home and washed some windows.:rolleyes:
