Monday May 10, 2010 keep moving - good snacks following exercise - Recipes + Blood Pressure "creep up-smack down"

Posted May 10 2010 1:05pm

The time that I can stay on my feet moving about has increased to the point where I feel I am almost back to normal, keeping at the house or yard work if I choose to, and do that AFTER my exercise time.  I have worked back to what is considered 'formal exercise', = keeping steadily at walking for 30-60 minutes a day and at a pace of 2.5 miles per hour - or better.  

 SEVEN years working at this, not for the faint at heart.  When you start at a few steps, exercise at that rate seems like a never possible, but it is.  The best part:  YOU choose how much you want to do.  If ten minutes moving from room to room is your choice… go for it.  You can always change your goal to more.  Starting with little increases is the way to go…you won’t regret it, the “feel better” reward is worth the work and increases proportionately to your input.

Most everything in life is hard to do, but when you really want to do something, and make up your mind, you CAN do it. 
It's that indecision of whether you really want it 'enough' to have some discomfort.  Of course I am not suggesting you try anything if you have physically limiting health factors... always check with your doctor.
