    Default February 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.

    Today I swam 20 minutes, 603 yards. With nausea, dizziness, etc. It made it no worse, so....

    I realize I could die in the pool, but this disease is a living death anyway...and, I am not reckless.
    You're talking about your at-home pool? Do you mean that you could die there because there'd be no one around (lifeguard, other swimmers) to come to your aid in an emergency?

    I'm trying to stifle my inner hen here but can't help wondering. If you started to have a problem while in the pool, would you be able to summon help?

    Today I went to bank (just drive through), then to Costco where I had to walk, then to Harris Teeter, more walking, then to Fresh Market, more walking, then to K-Mart, more walking, then I stopped and got a hamburger to bring home (went in to get it), then I remembered that there were some things I just had to have from Walgreens so I went there, more walking. I came home and it took 3 trips to get everything in the house, more walking down the sidewalk.

    I also took out the trash after I ate. I am tired, but glad it is done.

    Walking was hard today. I was wobbly and off from where I have been.

    I have a DRIVE rollator too and so far have had no problems with it whatsoever. I've had it a couple of years now. Easy to assemble, easy to fold up, not too heavy and it doesn't take up too much space.

    I wake up with sore muscles, so I know I'm doing some good, I've given myself permission to do less every other day, or take a day off if I want.

    Walking:

    Monday: 1,700
    Tuesday: 1,650
    Wednesday: 1,750
    Thursday: 2,100
    Friday: 2,250

    Also doing all the other stuff. Agate, too unstable when walking backwards, so I stopped that...not worth a possible fall.

    Good work, Sunshine & Virginia!

    Wonderful Sunshine. I was concerned when you had nausea.

    SuzeQ, that is a tremendous amount of steps you are taking, plus everything else you do. Great!

    Today, I paid for yesterday. I was so tired this morning I didn't really want to get up. I read all day.

    Today I shopped at a big, crowded Whole Foods and a Trader Joe’s. At Trader Joe’s, we had to park 2 blocks away from the store. Super Bowl Fever is intense here. Worse than the shopping before a nor’easter. Lots of walking. Also stairs here and at MIL’s.

    Sunshine, I hope the dizziness and nausea stops. Any chance it’s from your meds?
