You're in Clark Kent mode for a week then? How about your son? Is he walking with us this week?
I do tai chi, and am often surprised how tiring standing for some time can be.
There's a thread about them over in the exercise sections (the sort of place the serious exercises share experiences) - someone there was helpful and encouraging when I asked for advice about them.
Gym yesterday (tabata rows, bodyweight circuits), swimming today. But ended up hypo - grrr.
My fitbit surge wouldn't sync/download after hubbies climb of Ben Nevis!! Gggggggrrrrrr!
However fitbit did eventually get back with suggestions how to fix it.
Thank goodness I bought it from Amazon! Notified Saturday. New one arrived today.
Lost the data for Ben Nevis though. Really annoyed about that. As usual though Amazon had no quibble, and replacement on charge now!!
2 hours walking today. Some effects starting to show. My blood sugar starting to run at lower end of normal most of the time, so may be making a reduction in basal rate if it goes on. That's encouraging for me. Still aiming to get rid of the body fat, though. My muscle:fat ratio leaves a lot to be desired. Really must get some weights.
And an interesting article about effects of exercise:
Poundland had good small exercise weights to do with a ball.
Sometimes I strap weights to my ankles for walking.
Today just eased my way back to 3 hrs gardening.
40 minutes' walking today.
Photo shoot for winning an award and then 2 hours gardening... Just 2 diazepam before bed now so must be getting better!!
Replacement fitbit surge arrived from Amazon and syncs up good so can now go back to watching my activity a bit more.
Back at work today so got off the tube one stop early and walked, lunchtime stroll and 15 flights of stairs.
Keep going guys.
80min walk earlier tonight, great thread btw @RuthW
Only about 15 minutes' walk today, but better plans for tomorrow.
Every little helps (as someone said...)
The best laid plans..... In fact, what I thought would be a walking outing turned out to be sitting in cafes. I managed to work in about thirty minutes walking but it was hardly enough to offset what was consumed for breakfast! Tomorrow is another day.......
Hi Ruth, don't despair, how about a few stair climbs before bed? Or just a bit of pottering while the TV is on? I only managed a little walk today too. Numbers have been higher though as a result.
Hey Ruth.. Just get up to turn off the tv!! Got to be a calorie in that!
Good idea to go up n down stairs a few times... Unless in a flat or bungalow...
I so this currently.. In few weels times miving to a bungalow!!
Fortunately (or not!!!) I have to paint every ceiling white... Going to take a few coats as the ceilings are the same colours as the walls!!! And artexed too... Wonder how much exercise using a paint roller on celing counts as??
Hope you get more done tomorrow Ruth..x
Yes, it's not a TV-inertia problem in fact, since I hardly ever turn it on. And i potter all the time. It is more a 'fighting off the Turkish hospitality" problem!
In fact I think I didn't too badly yesterday as my blood sugars are averaging 126mg/dl (somewhere in the 5s in mmol) so far today, so obviously haven't let the exercise drop enough to affect insulin sensitivity.
And it's Eid, so here in Turkey, it's sugar, sugar everywhere. (Maybe better to skulk at home for a few days, unseen).
Used my new panniers to ride into town an do the shopping today, all ads to the activity level
Just come back in from a 90min walk with my four legged friend.
