I had my D and magnesium checked the first part of Dec and when I finally remembered to call for the results the nurse said if there was a problem I would get the results in the mail, I haven't received anything so I take it they were okay.
I have those tapes Sherrine. I am so bad about doing those boring routines, I'd rather scrub floors. Actually, I would get a lot more satisfaction out of cleaning my house than using my energy to do something unproductive.
Guess I will use treadmill for cardio to get me going and then use my house for strength training. I want to clean out my kitchen cabinets so that means up and down on stool and lifting for my arms.
My oldest sister joined Curves and is going three times a week so of course, like most people, she doesn't understand why I can't. I told her I did join Curves a few years ago and after the first visit, not knowing much about fibro at the time, I thought I was going to die. Because I did have a medical condition they let me out of the contract. She got really sore the first time she went and I said, "imagine feeling like that most days and that is the way my muscles feel". I'm sure she didn't get it but.............
I have noticed like when my niece comes to help me clean I get more done cause I feel bad that she is cleaning my house so I need volunteers from you girls to come help me clean from top to bottom, clean out all cabinets, drawers and closets and paint some rooms. Wouldn't that be fun if we could go to each others houses and have a cleaning party every week??? We would all get exercise and have fun doing it but we would never find anything in our houses again.
I tried Provigil but can't remember what side effects I had from it that made me quit taking it. I don't get sleepy, it's fatigue.
Patsie we can set goals together if you want or if anyone else wants, five minutes on treadmill tomorrow or walking in place???
Thanks for all your ideas on how to get me fit or moving anyway.
luv and hugs
