Day 7 of the comeback

Wednesday, September 07, 2016

Doing okay with food. Doing better with walking, but not yet up to 8000 steps a day. Getting there.

Finally finished processing all the apples, thank goodness. Pears are not yet ripe enough to do anything with, so maybe I'll get a day off from the kitchen. When it's all done, I'll have more time for exercise. I'm actually looking forward to it.

I'm thinking about attempting to jog. Not quite yet, but soon. I read about someone recently who said the first time she tried jogging she could only run for 30 seconds, but now she's doing marathons. I'm fairly sure I could handle 30 seconds. Also read that high impact aerobics is good for arthritic joints. I'm going to research that a little further before I test the theory as I have arthritis in both knees, especially the right one..

In the meantime, I'm feeling good about getting back into the healthy lifestyle.

    A few steps a day lead to great things. Slow and steady. Yes, watch out for those knees. Talk to your doctor, it will be all good!

    I couldn't run for 30 seconds either a few short years ago and I've been training for my first half marathon, which is in less than 3 weeks. I'm scared and excited at the same time. I'll most likely never do it again (the training is taking up a lot of time) but I'm pretty pumped up that I've been able to do what I've done so far.

    Slow and steady wins the race! emoticon

    Glad to hear your still hanging in there! You will be up to 10,000 steps soon! I would research the jogging as I don't think it's good for your knees, but power walking is good! And I understand you get all the same benefits!
    Have a great Thursday!

    Isn't it amazing how few steps we take on some days? Try walking on the spot while doing the dishes. With arthritis you should try walk-run-walk. Also known as the Galloway method. It us gentler on the joints. I did it for years and Have RA.
