I had a busy day doing carer duties. Three hours night school, plus my regular work.
My MOVE activity began with watering the vegetable garden, and discovering my fitness level for the day was down, I was SOB. That stands for short of breath, not son of a ....
Still managed a long, evening walk in the countryside, but used my off-road walker for stability on the rough dirt track, and because it has headlights. This is the Trionic Veloped, see photos, it is no granny walker. It has a climbing wheel at the front that will ride over branches on the ground or big pot-holes and steps.
I got home and rested with a glass of water and checked—560 steps.
I got on the treadmill desk, warm up at 1 kilometres an hour. Check my eMails at two kilometres per hour (a little out of breath level) then slowed back to 1 kilometres an hour.
I checked my step count total before midnight and I had made 7,800 steps for the day.
Then I checked in with the online recovery group for my health issue. They (mostly 20 to 30-year-olds) are still inactive, still waiting for their health to return before they do anything, They seem happy popping pills, but they don't want to hear that sedentary lifestyle is a major contributor to their illness, exercise eliminates thee need for so much dangerous medication.
I'd rather be with positive people or talk to myself.
Well, I'm darn pleased that this fat old lady who struggled to do a short easy walk in her garden this morning ended up walking almost 8000 steps. Bring on tomorrow, because I'm not going backward. :-).
