Hello Everyone!

So, here's a weird thing. I was diagnosed with osteopenia in my hips and have been lazing around for the 3 months since. What's up with that?

Today I'm getting back on my swim/walk schedule and also cleaning my house. My goal is to build up to climbing 100 flights of stairs 3X per week. Wish me luck!

In other news, I'm only 2 years away from my PhD now. Whoop!

Peace to everyone. heart

Gooooooooooo TEAM! clap

Hi Everyone,

Over the past month, I've been hiking easy trails with an old friend. At first, we could barely get up - Serpent's Trail hill, but after only 8 tries we made it to the top and back in 1 hr 45 minutes. Sore feet! ~~~ but worth it. I tried to do a harder trail with her, but about halfway up I decided it wasn't safe, so I went back down slowly by myself. The cool thing is that on the way down I got to see a small flock of canyon wren and also a hummingbird who flew right up and chirped at me!

I hope you're well and happy!

Gooooooooo team! clap

Hi Team! clap

I have discovered something AMAZING. I didn't want to commit to a $200+ fitness watch, so I bought a $30 model to see if I'd use it.

Well ~ It is so cool. It reminds me to move every hour. I'm getting so much more done.

It also counts my steps each day which has given me a baseline for how many steps my body can handle before my feet/ankles swell up.

This is super convenient because I can plan my days around how many steps I need to take vs. how many I can't go over. For instance, I know that my work in the afternoon adds up to around 3,500 steps, so I can't hike my favorite trail that day because that's 11,000 steps which is about my max for one day.

And I've figured out that if I swim (gently/slowly) for about 30 minutes after a 10,000 step day I'm much less stiff and sort the next day.

Anyways, GOOOOOOOOOOOOO TEAM!!! cheerleader

Hi Everyone!

Lately I've been reading about Blue Zones for school, and it turns out that these same factors that create blue zones also ease chronic pain.

Here's someexercise info, and what I love is that if this idea is combined with blue zones natural movement advice - it works for happiness, pain relief, and longevity. So, doing what you love counts more than running a marathon! Unless running a marathon is what you love. Then that counts, too.

Still gardening and playing with grandkids. That's my natural movement pursuit!

Gooooooooooooooo team! clap :cheerleader;

Great to hear Erika. All sounds very active.
I used my static bike for half an hour 3 times last week and three times this week.
I´ll try to keep it up again this week coming
