    At 6:30 a.m. I swam 20 minutes, 603 yards. I have been moving the better leg in a light kick lately because otherwise the legs sink, which stresses the lower back during freestyle...DH took off the pool cover...then went to a doc appt., stopped at produce stand, and resting now...

    on March 12, 14 and today I swam 20 minutes, 603 yards. It feels so good to be in the water. As soon as am in, the sensation of the water reduces the pain in my skin and it diverts attention away from stiffness if its not intense.

    Loved re reading Pegs post on activity with the grandkids :)

    Every movement helps:

    http://time.com/5550764/light-exercise-heart-health/

    Now, new research published in JAMA Network Open shows just how impactful any type of movement can be. Compared to women who get less exercise, those who get lots of light physical activity may have up to a 42% lower risk of dying from coronary problems, such as heart attacks, and a 22% lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease, the study says.

    Light activity includes “most of the movements of daily life,” says study co-author Andrea LaCroix, a professor and chief of epidemiology at the University of California, San Diego. Walking around, getting dressed, checking the mail, pruning the garden and doing dishes all count. “Those are examples of daily life activities that we don’t think of as exercise, but we spend a lot of time doing them and they involve movement,” LaCroix says. “We traditionally haven’t included them in our definition of physical activity. That’s why this research is really paradigm-shifting.”

    Suze-Q, that is really good news for me. I do some light physical activity around the house, but not something I would post as exercise.

    Today I did my little leg and arm exercises one time and then I starched and ironed 3 blouses. I had some blue jeans that I had washed and wanted to iron, but forgot. Will have to do them later.

    It is exercise though, Virginia. Just moving around indoors is exercise.

    Today I didn't go out at all but yesterday I cleaned out the freezer part of the refrigerator, a project that involved removing part of it with a screwdriver, then replacing the screws, which were rusty and not the easiest things to put back in place. Today I cleaned the stove top. I did the oven the other day. The stove top always is a challenge because some of the burners are hard to put back, and today I had a struggle to get them back. It was a bit of a strain on my right arm, pushing and twisting them until they were in right.

    These jobs didn't add much to my step count but I feel they were exercise. I was at least on my feet and moving around. My natural inclination is probably to sit or lie down most of the time, I hate to admit. Not good.
