    Default Keep on Moving Club: Oct. 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? Tracked your count of steps? Chased your cat around the home? Pushed the wheelchair wheels with your arms at the store? Post them here and we can support and egg each other on.

    I swam 30 minutes today. 800 yards, closing in on half mile. Will throttle back, don't like the leg and twitching from it.

    Exactly Peg. Mourn what we lost and then get on it with what we still can do. Good job :)

    I try not to do the mourning part. I avoid thinking back on what I used to do. There's no mileage in that kind of thinking--it goes absolutely nowhere but downhill.

    There's a piano right down the hall in this building. I tried playing it once but couldn't. Other people are getting it to sound like something. It enters my head that in the old days I could have been doing that. I turn that thought off right away.

    Yesterday is gone, tomorrow doesn't exist yet, all we can see and act on is now.

    Pedometer readings in September (28 days):

    1327 steps average

    That's about 100 steps less than in August. Do I have an excuse? I'm looking for one.

    Agate, you have an excuse - you did more of other things like weights, etc.

    Peg, you are doing so well. You are very active and walking all that you can.

    BBS, wonderful! Soon, you will be able to do this without the worry about the twitching in legs, etc.

    Let's skip me for today. I went out to dinner and brother and his wife came back to my house. I went to grocery store.

    Cool

    Agate, you gave me those 100 steps so I don't look like such a veg? Remember, I said "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday, for 100 steps today".

    You folks are very kind but I'm afraid it was just laziness.

    Oh wait--I found an excuse! I had to do a lot of unexpected extra housework, what with the windows being cleaned on the outside so that I had to do the insides, and then I had to wash a curtain, and then had to starch and iron it and rehang it.

    Then the ants came back. (They'd never been away, really, but they haven't been showing their little ant faces much in recent months.) I felt I ought to be cleaner around here to discourage them.

    So I cleaned up the bathroom and vacuumed the place and got a lot of dust out of here.

    I don't know why all of that didn't involve steps. I'm still thinking that this pedometer isn't very accurate.

    Virginia, do I recall that you have a similar pedometer, and you were wondering if yours was accurate too?
