I totally agree. The fresh air is good therapy, but as my father used to say. "The farther you walk, the longer we live". Even when I go shopping I'll give other's the closer parking spot's and I'll walk a little further. I have my dad's quote in my head every time I park. Try it. My doctor said if you walked into the store, resteraunt, etc every time instead of the drive thru you can loose 5 pds in a year. I'm trying it and liking it too. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Personnaly I LOVE to walk. But with the cold weater coming our way I'll have to do it on an inside track. I cant stand very cold temperatures for long period of times!
The farther I walk the better I feel and even if I feel like crap it still helps!
I agree. High impact exercise is out of the question now. I find great joy in walking. It helps to clear the mind and to destress too. Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
I'm with all of you on everything. Walking de-stresses me, and since hi impact stuff is out of the question for now, all I have is the walking. I can't wait to get back to some of my high impact stuff though :D Also .... I don't mind the cold, summer is what gets me. I am not someone that deals with heat well. It makes me grouchy. lol
The heat and humidity makes me sicker also. The cold dry air helps to keep inflammation down I think for me. I do try to sneak in a higher impact workout. I usually regret it the next day, but it feels good when I'm doing it. I miss weight lifting. I'm doing a light Pilates tape, it helps to keep me limber.
I miss my P90X and jui-jitsu very much. Those were very good outlets for the stress in my life. Walking you can only do so much with before it becomes running and that is a no no right now. I start PT next week, hoping, I can get some muscle strength back before I go to work and so I can ease back into my workout routines, starting with P90X and hoping to get back into jiu-jitsu at some point within the next year.
