    Default Keep on Moving Club: Sept. 2017

    MS creates some real challenges to keep on moving. It helps to inspire each other on how to find ways to move.

    Did you stretch in your bed, swing your arms, roll side to side today? Or perhaps you did housework? Or exercised in a pool? Pushed the wheelchair wheels with your arms at the store? Post them here and we can support and egg each other on.

    Agate did some heart racing exercise last night,. Reads like an adventure mystery story.

    I did packing up the rented condo, cleaning out the fridge, sitting in a car for 2 hours. Then a stop for breakfast at Marshlands in Sandwich, Ma.

    That was followed by grocery shopping for home in a huge grocer, Market Basket. Then wedging that in the car and then another 2 hours to get home.

    Peter empties the car. I put away groceries and empty the cooler. Lots of "bend and stretch" and "standing on tippy-toes."

    I'd like to rest today but I have laundry to do.

    Ordinary people probably don't think much about the amount of bending and stretching they do on a typical day.

    There's one nice thing about the task of putting groceries away, at least as I see it. Once you've stashed away the frozen things and the things that have to be kept cool, you can leave the rest of it in all of untidy piles just sitting there until you get around to it.

    They can sit around, and so can you.

    Thumbs up

    I did the bank and store run, and mailed off my paid bills. I just finished making my pasta and fresh coleslaw. I pull two chairs out, one in front of the fridge, the other in front of the stove. I now have the counters clean, and will let both my dishes sit for awhile, then later, will chow down! I'm hungry!!!

    I agree, Agate. I don't do as well looking at the laundry pile. It looks back and says, "Ah, come on, how tired can you be?"

    The two chairs idea is nifty, Howie. You don't have to keep moving chairs around!

    I often have to move chairs (and other furniture) around just to make room for the wheelchair I'm often using, in other places. So the wheelchair that is supposed to help with a disability actually tires me out because of the effort involved in moving furniture to make way for it--and of course there are the doors that don't automatically open, the curbcuts that aren't there and I have to make a detour, etc.

    That Americans with Disabilities Act has a lot of loopholes in it, evidently.

    There hasn't been even 70% compliance so far as I can figure out.

    ANN, I agree about the laundry pile. What it says to me is, "And just what are you going to wear if you let this go undone?"

    We can't all go around wearing just a thong.

    And why aren't toilets in handicap stalls required to be higher? Even docs are way too low. I end up having to stand over and pee like a guy. Can't squat

    I usually end up in a regular stall because the seat in the handicap is too tall for me. My legs dangle if I can manage to get up on the seat. Two sides to every coin and all that...
