      Default What exercise do you do?

      I go on walks in the spring summer, and fall but I don't get much exercise in the winter except from shoveling snow from the driveway. Well, my son works at a nature center where they rent out cross country skis and snowshoes for free and he encouraged me to participate in a 5k race yesterday. So I did it! I came in last place but I finished. My skiing abilities isn't what slowed me down, my heart is what slowed me down. I just don't have the stamina I had 30 years ago when I was young and could ski for miles and miles. I think the last time I went skiing was 25 years ago. I used to ski from my mother's back yard down through the woods to the river, then I'd ski up the river several miles to a club that had ski trails, then I'd ski the trails, and then finally ski all the way back home. There are shorter trails at the nature center. Maybe I'll try going skiing more often. Yesterday was a good day, but I am starting to get Sooooooo Soar.

      Being super active helps with combating weight gain from antipsychotics.

      HI Folks,

      Well, as always, I workout to my fitness dvds, and also I am planning with a view to attend zumba and zumba gold classes, from when the Spring starts - just afterwards.

      Default What exercise do you do?

      fairy lu, if you have trouble exercising you might want to try doing simple stretches everyday. even if it's not much it will get you used to moving your body more. I started with not doing much, I had a knee pop out of place a couple years back and it made it almost impossible to do any kind of physical activity. I had to wear a knee brace for 2 years and still deal with minor pain. stretching is stress reducing and is a lot less intimidating than a workout. I found a list of simple yoga stretchs and try to do as much as I can.
      Thanks Fairy Lucretia gave thanks for this post.

      I used to be more active, but my job makes it really difficult due to the hours. Usually, I'll use the gym, run or go for walks. Occasionally, I'll play football, tennis, go swimming, go bowling, play badminton, and dance!x

      Hi Fairy Lucretia,

      Natalie (other user on the site) used to do chair-based exercises, which I think might be really helpful for you - you get to exercise more without having to leave your house if you don't want to! I'd message Natalie about it - it's definitely worked wonders for her!x

      Much love <3

      For some reason I’m considering a half marathon in September, so I guess I’d have to start running

      During summer i like to go on long walks around my town and the surrounding countryside,it's very theraputic. But for the rest of the year i have an indoor bike which i spend atleast one hour a day on it.
