WELCOME MOVERS AND SHAKERS!
I AM ALIVE, JUST VERTIGO IS MESSING WITH BRAIN
FORGOT IT WAS THURSDAY
Sorry, I know that is not very confidence inspiring, but remember we all have MS. This hasn't been a good several weeks for me. If I could get the world to stop spinning around and let me off, I'd be okay!
red, you're trying hard and that will pay off.
me, i've been falling off the wii balance board so not much exercise unless you count all the extra weaving walking i'm doing.
dave, you missing one day is understandable since i imagine your fingers have gotten a workout.
HEY! A new exercise to add to our list besides gardening which is an excellent exercise. Perhaps we can add typing. It involves our whole hand, and most of the arm- wonder if anyone has done a study on how many calories you burn while typing?
FIT TIPS FOR THE WEEK:
Ways to Flatten Your Belly by Summer
By*The Editors of Prevention*|*Healthy Living*
Paddle Off Your Belly Pooch*
Kayaking is an exhilarating, ab-crunching workout. Constant paddling requires lots of twisting and tightness from your abs for long periods of time....
not sure how to modify this for you. For those still able to do this, go for it! But nobody drowning on my watch!
Sculpt Your Core While You Walk*
As you go about your day, imagine there's a magnet pulling your belly button back toward your spine. Practice the tuck until it becomes comfortable, and soon this easy ab-engaging move will become like second nature.*This trick works while sitting also.
Stand Tall While Pumping Iron*OR SIT TALL AS APPLICABLE
Stand as much as possible when doing weight-lifting exercises. That way your abs will naturally help to balance and stabilize your body. To add an extra flat belly boost to your weight routine, concentrate on keeping your abs tight and maintaining good posture while you lift, but without holding your breath.*
Hoping all our bellies are getting flatter (no pics though please! with DD pregnant I've seen enough belly lately!)
Keep moving and keep hydrated as weather warms up!
Glad you liked the water mix recipe. It really helped me through steroids, better for you and cheaper than bought flavored water!
Take care and God bless ya!
