    Default Keep on Moving: June 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 importantó it doesnt have to be ďexerciseĒ! Even Science proves thaT.

    Rabbit Rabbit.

    Hoping for some goodness in June

    :) I am faithfully doing my exercises every night. I can't believe how long it is taking me to get stronger. I can see a very slow gradual improvement. Since I was basically in the bed for months in rehab I am doing okay. At least no falls for awhile. Jeanie :)

    That is great Jeanie! Donít be so hard on yourself. Look at what your challenges areó youre working it, and doing what your body allows.

    I've been so busy lately that I haven't been posting about my exercise, but a couple of days ago I racked up 3,500 steps. That's a record for me.

    Those numbers are really amazing Suze-Q. What do you do on rainy days?

    I only walk inside, Virginia. At any given time, I have no idea when my leg will begin limping and quickly dragging, so I am actually afraid to walk outside because I don't know if I'll be able to get home or to my car. I must do it in increments and stop and rest to recover my leg strength. It is never more than 1,000 steps at a time, and that's usually only once/day max.

    I also seem to have the most strength and can go farther late at night or really early in the morning, probably when core body temp is at its lowest. So, I really don't want to be out walking then anyway.

    Staying at home and covid has motivated me to get walking more in my own environment! And this is my first week with a pedometer. It seems a little too sensitive, but I'll just have to go with its #'s. But, having it definitely motivates me to take a few extra steps at any given time!

    Swam today 1/2 mile. So nice, and worth the exhaustion it brings with it on my legs.
    Cooked a meal, resting . Alone. Quietly.
