October 8 – Met with Exercise physiologist, Rich Weil, at my apartment. Amazing experience as he found the exact spot in my shoulder that seems to hold all my accumulated tension. Led me through a series of exercises focused on more strength in arms/shoulders, abdominal strength, better balance.
Now have a program to follow; awaiting stretch bands in the mail in order to do the entire set The challenge: a new discipline– for one undisciplined in at-home exercise. Perfect timing for colder weather ahead. I value the model of several here and may ask questions about how you maintain your own practice–time of day, frequency.

Oct. 11 – 5,580 steps, 991 aerobic (took new route in walk within apartment complex)
