Thread: Keep on Moving May 2020

  1. #1

    Default Keep on Moving May 2020

    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.

    REMEMBER: this is a keep on moving thread, not keep on exercising! Any moving is important— it doesnt have to be “exercise”! Even Science proves thaT.

    Rabbit Rabbit.

    Hoping for some goodness in May.

    I swam today at least.

    Hi Sunshine...I was glad to read your post. I am trying to force myself to move, rest, move, rest...etc. I have been lazy during this quarantine...moving very little, barely a couple of hours a day. Need to lose the weight I have gained!
    Take care

    I keep forgetting to do those wall pushups. Now that I've figured out how to do them, I really have no excuse.

    I haven't been getting out to walk in the nice weather either. I've been fairly busy, doing laundry the last two days, plus ironing.

    Dealing with a blocked toilet should count as exercise because I was wiped out for most of that day afterwards. It doesn't take so much strength to operate a snake but it does take some coordination and maneuvering of a tricky gadget in a small space.

    I'm not much good at that kind of thing first thing in the morning.

    :) I am doing my PT exercises every night before I go to bed. I do lower leg lifts, stomping while sitting, heel raises and squats then two minutes of standing. I use a theraband and do several arm exercises then use weights and do curls.

    I do at least 20 of each thing and I can tell my muscles are getting slightly better. I am more steady when I transfer now too. Everything else I do is done on a scooter but I do laundry, cooking, dishes, etc. I am about 60% back to normal. Jeanie :)

    It's 9 days into May and I'm finally getting around to figuring up the average step count for April.

    Drum roll, please!

    Average step count for April:

    1687 steps/day based on 30 days. That is the highest average in a year and a half.

    Agate, you definitely have not been lazy or wasting your time. That is a great average.

    I walked today, thinned the raised bed and repotted pansies into 4 terra cotta pots for the front steps. Orange and purple pansies. :-)
