  2. Sunday Monday Tuesday Wed Thursday Friday Saturday Week 1 Walk Yoga Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Definitely feeling it the walk still. mostly in my feet, mostly because I need new shoes. Stretching yesterday helped.
  3. Sunday Monday Tuesday Wed Thursday Friday Saturday Week 1 Walk Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Walked 3.5 miles yesterday. Did one mile by myself, then later in the day, met up with a group of friends for a walk that lasted 2.5 miles. I didn't know I could do that much at one time anymore. And, though my feet are paying for it because my shoes are old, my knees and hips are fine; which is a huge and happy surprise.
  4. Changing this a bit. Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Church work work work work work Jujitsu Float day Walk Walk Walk Float day Gym 1. Gym 2 Still doing walks around the neighborhood/ 5-10 min. Zumba- ish videos from Youtube. "Gym 1". is still: RDLs, bench and lats. Also working core with planks or shoulder stands, and assorted abs exercises. + 10=20 min. of some type of cardio. "Gym 2". is now: Squats, Bulgarian split squats, shoulder press, and tricep dips; possibly also glute bridge. + planks & 10-20 min cardio. "Float days" are days that could be BW circuits, MA conditioning drills, abs and core, yoga; or they could be rest days, What ever I need them to be, it's the weekend. And, as much as I love 5/3/1s and 5x5s; I really need to work on lifting moderate weights for awhile. I always want to dive back into powerlifting and I lift too heavy too fast, and end up injuring myself. So, to moderate myself, I need to do moderate sets. I'll be back on 3x8s, pyramids, and inverted pyramids for a while so let myself rebuild safely.
  5. Sunday Monday Tuesday Wed Thursday Friday Saturday Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Not on the chart yet. I've been working on wrist mobility, and have improved enough to do pushups. I haven't done more than 5 (knee) pushups for a year, because of wrist pain. But thankfully, the mobility stuff has been working, and i was able to do actual sets today. Lunges (each side), 3x8 @ body weight Rear leg lifts (each side), 3x15 @ body weight Knee pushups 3x8 @ body weight. Honestly, this is the most I've done months. So I'm going to leave it at that and be happy with myself.
  6. I guess I need a new graph: Sunday Monday Tuesday Wed Thursday Friday Saturday Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 I really, really plan to get my mp3 settled this weekend. (Hopefully today). So that I can go back to the gym next week without wanting to shove an ice pick in my ear. That should help things. If I can, I might go do a challenge since it lines up well with my next six weeks.

I ended working at least part of every day, and I felt guilty for the rest I did get. I only got a small portion of my to-do list completed,. I can't say it was particularly restful. but what it did was it allowed my get enough of my errands done that I could actually rest on the weekend. So I do feel somewhat better. I've also decided to take every Friday (or at least the afternoon) off. 1. To help me get errands done so I can rest on the weekend, 2. So that I can rest a little more rest on Friday, and hopefully in general.

Saw a thing from Al Kavadlo on FB today that said exercise is like medicine, and like any medicine the dosage is crucial; a responsible doctor will only prescribe a low dosage to begin with and you increase it only as necessary. And then Steve ( or whoever is in charge of NF FB) posted a thing about how we make stuff too complicated when all most of us need is a walk, more sleep, and some therapy. And it all made me think about what I'm trying to do right now. To just establish healthy habits and be mindful, instead of pushing really aggressive, unwavering goals. I feel like I'm on a good path, even if it's a slow one. Next week I'm taking a vacation. I not going anywhere, I just want to have a restful staycation. But I do have two goals with vacation, 1). To get my garden in order. 2). To figure out the MP3 player I got for Christmas and load some workout playlists. The music at the gym is awful.

  11. I read a memory from seven years ago on FB. I had just completed a 1001 burpee challenge, in which I did 143 burpees a day for seven days. I didn't just decided to do this, I spent nearly four months working up to it. I added one burpee a day, rain or shine, until I hit 100. Then I wanted to keep going, and did 100 for a solid week; and finally deciding to do 143 a day for "The Week of 1001." It was big deal to me; and I've held onto it over the years, not as a marker of success, but as a reminder of failure. Once I could do 143 burpees in a day, and now I could maybe do three before getting dizzy, or my knees cracking at frightening decibels. Today, however, instead of regarding the old FB post through the disappoint of comparison; I merely looked at the memory and simply thought, "That's cool, I wonder what my next challenge will be".
