No exercise here lately ( for awhile anyway).

I came here hoping to get some motivation.

 

same here, Teacup.  how are you doing? 

 

i'm terribly out of shape, and sometimes my worst knee -- both knees are bad -- prevents me doing much involving that leg.  there is other pain & fatigue, as well as serious lack of motivation.  i have to try to fight, or it is only going to get worse.

 

i did my 30 min owl pond walk today.  also 10 canned-goods arm curls each arm.  not much but it's a start.

Just wanted to leave some encouragement for both of you. I always tell myself that even if I'm  having a day where I can't meet the goal I set for myself, it only matters that I do something every day. I get points for doing it at all. 

 

I walked seven miles today, split up over two walks. I get bonus points for this because it's cold as hell out here.

and vacuuming about 10 min, but because I'm still sick, both were cardio workouts today

That's a great habit to make, sync!

 

The more encouraging we are to ourselves, the more likely we will build positive thinking around our habits.

 

Otherwise, "the beatings and whippings will continue until morale improves" seems to be the default, eh?

Playing against my Xbox in Kinect Sports Season 2 Tennis... Which is a game where you literally run around your living room pretending you're playing real tennis.  There's a special body motion sensor (Kinect) that makes sure you're working yourself out.

 

I don't stop until the count reaches 150 kcal, which is if you play the game as if you were playing ping-pong... as a former competitive tennis player, I play it in real-life style, including jumping in the air to make shots and holding a kid-size tennis racquet (anything larger risks banging into the ceiling fan in my house's living room!).  So I think I'm burning a *little* bit more than 150 calories with 90 minutes of this thing.

 

This is in line with my pulmonologist's recommendations that I do 90 minutes of mildly aerobic activity *every single day*.

 

Note that this activity is correlated directly and inversely to productivity at my part time research position and my grades as a student... to say nothing of correlation of requiring more sleeping to make up for exercise-induced lack of oxygen. :brooding:

 

On the bright side, I lost 5 lbs. of pure bodyfat, not that I was overweight to begin with.  But my pulmo still says I should reduce to around 120 lbs. -- the *underweight* threshold for a male my size (5'7", 140 lbs currently). :brooding:

Now on: Cymbalta, mirtazapine, oxybutynin, clonazepam, lamotrigine, clonidine, levothyroxine, metformin, Testim.  As Velvet Elvis implied, I sound like a freakin' maraca salesman when I go through airport security.

The hike was 8 miles but I really felt all of it because hiking in snow is pretty difficult.

 

Had a really fun day.

Koa ... that looks awesome!

Glad you lost weight!  Curious as to why your DR wants you down to 120 lbs?  IMO that is low for a 5'7 male.  Average weights for males are 106 pounds for the first 5 feet, then multiply 6 x the number of inches after that.  Then add those numbers together.  This is what I was taught in school.

Thanks! Not only is it much healthier for me mentally, if I don't do it I'll lose my will to exercise inside of a week.

 

Negative feedback just makes me shut down. If I get down on myself about exercise I'll be miserable and I'll just avoid it entirely. 

 

Lots of positivity keeps my mind happy and my exercise fun and rewarding :)

koa -- Gorgeous pictures!  I can't hike at altitude because of my lungs but I'm glad you were able to snap these beauties!

 

melissa -- 5'7" and 120 lbs. = BMI of 19 (lower limit of normal weight).  My current BMI is 22 (smack in the middle of normal).  Granted, I also think that my pulmo's suggestion of 120 is insane.

However I went swimming yesterday and it was really good. Using your whole body, the hugging feeling of water and the tired feeling after it rocks (everything for a good night of sleep!)

I might go again on Friday.

I'm with you, Sawi. I really like being in the water. Mostly I like to do "old lady water aerobics" though.

 

 

30 minute walk at lunch yesterday.

30 minute walk this morning.
