Elderexercise will, I hope, motivate me into getting moving and losing some of the weight I’ve put on on the last three years (20+kilos!) – or at least, stop me gaining even more!
it looks as though I’ll need a pedometer as I’ve no idea how many steps I take during a day – or how many i should aim for.
The only other ‘kit’ we have at home is a bicycle (in the bathroom). When we put it together – without reading the instructions properly – i did something wrong and so it’s pretty hard going, even on the lowest setting. Never mind. It makes me work harder. At present I can manage 1km in just under 6 minutes.
Long walks are out of the qustion as I have a kneecap problem – mustn’t work kneeling down, and if I’m not careful the knee ‘blocks’ at inconvenient moments. A few years ago I enjoyed walking to the next village and back (about 2 hours) but wouldn’t dare try now.
Of course, serious dieting would help but I love food. I’ll try to eat more sensibly but the important thing is to keep moving.
You ladies sound as though you mean business so I’m looking forward to joining in.
