Chatty, glad to inspire. I must confess, it was just what happens in the normal course of a day, although I have at times used my stairs for actual exercise.
The other night I was lying in bed and ended up doing a number of gentle exercises. Lay on my stomach, back, both sides, and lifted up what could be lifted, pushed up what could be pushed up, all the half-remembered exercises I've done over the years. It was actually kind of fun. And seeing as I want to start any form of strength training slowly and cautiously, that was as good a start as any, I suppose.
They shouldn't have been allowed to put Mandoline on the package. It was actually just a V-slicer with a single blade, as I discovered after I ripped the packaging open. Grrr. Oh well, it wasn't expensive, and I can make use of it, but I'll still have to get one that can shred and then this one will be redundant. One of my kids will be happy...
Slow, gentle day here today. I need it after all the running around and socializing of the last couple of weeks. (To think I used to be able to add that kind of thing on top of a full day...)
Both my mother and SIL have been asking questions about primal. My mother doesn't need to lose weight, but is looking for extra energy. She wants to feel like she's 20... Why not?
5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again
More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
