This is week #3 of the PC/Aerobics Challenge. View the link HERE from week #1 to get the background...but in brief, it is a "challenge" for HealingWell participants to get up, get out, and get some exercise...and then record it here (use this thread during week #3). Let's continue to set a goal of 5-times this week! Remember that days off in there are required for the body to rejuvinate.
This week’s focus is on Quality of Life Can Be Within Our Control .
Hello: My name is Jack (Skate). From the last post from Casey59 you may be aware that he is off on an extended weekend vacation. He originated this thread and wants to see it continue through to the end of the challenge. He has asked me to start up on week 3 of 4.
Congrats to all who have participated in the last two weeks, as well as the new members who began in our second week.
Quality of Life is something that PC affects us in many ways. Often times we can still be in control of these many side effects as to the degree to which they can change the level of this quality.
Personally the Quality of My Life was much affected by my RP almost three years ago. Exercise was my way of regaining control of the Quality of My Life.
Eighteen months later, RT certainly affected the Quality of My Life. Exercise was again my way regaining and maintaining control of the Quality of My Life.
Here I am a year later and now undergoing HT and more than ever, I wish to maintain control over the Quality of My Life as much as possible. Exercise, for me, continues to be the "First Line of Defence" that is within my control against this invader to my body.
We are all in this together so let's fight it together and have as much control over the Quality of Life we live!
