    Default January 2019: Keep on Moving Thread

    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've lost several pounds in recent months, going from 120-121 to 116, and with every pound lost I'm moving around more easily. I have the notion that I do best if my weight is at the low end of the normal weight range for my height. I'm hoping to get back to 108, which is where I was for quite a number of years. I'm glad that the normal range is wide--94 to 119.

    Today i hit the 1/2 mile mark in 28 minutes. And, this down on a day where i decreased Tizanidine by 2 mg before the swim. So far, so good.

    Agate, congratulations to you. Did you cut out certain foods or cut down on portions?

    Sunshine, that is a marvelous thing to do on January 1, 2019.

    I've been trying to drop a few pounds for years. It's a matter of eating less--fewer crackers or nuts, less peanut butter, and making sure that the day's calorie intake doesn't usually go over 1200-1300.

    Sounds simple but somehow I wasn't motivated enough to get with the program.

    Cool

    Fewer crackers? Less peanut butter? But that was my only meal today!

    Congratulations Sunshine and Agate. Well done.

    Howie, no pasta or coleslaw?

    I walked around a big grocery store (Wegmans) today. I am sick of grocery stores but MIL needed a few things and it is good, safe exercise.

    Congratulations to us!!!

    Today I swam 15 minutes, a quarter mile, Had to swim late due to eye doc exam, around 11:30, and had to get out when the shins started to stretch. Earlier is better for sure.

    Still doing poorly, but no longer nausea. The swallowing issue is a bummer, the weakness, etc etc. Just one healthy day, heck one hour, would be a godsend!

    Isn't tomorrow payday? You could buy something tomorrow before the day is over, seems to me....

    --All right, I'm going. Sam, would you put that broom away. You don't need to shoo all the chickens out of the yard just now.
