      Mamabug! Great goals met!

      Been in a bit of fog this week. Literally too as our skies have been seasonally foggy.

      Put me down for partial goal met. I did help babysit a couple times for a short while, but only out in the garden briefly a couple times.
      My legs and walking have felt exceptionally heavy and sluggish with pain, so not much motivation to do much.

      Goal next week is to do more stretching to combat the spasticity and work on more positive thoughts during the trying times. Rain forecast for the next week, so maybe I can work on cleaning the house.

      Good health to all!

          Hello everyone

          Mamabug - Terrific job on your exercise goals!

          Seasha - Despite not feeling well, you still accomplished partial goals. Great effort! Hope you feel much better soon.

          Boudreaux - Fantastic! Goals met! Good luck on achieving a back-to-back victory next week.


          ~ My exercises went very well, and my goals were accomplished. I'm thankful for a good week.

          I had the good fortune to experience one of those rare days, whereby my nerve signals were transmitting way better than usual, all day long.

          It was truly amazing, but naturally left me wondering - what brings about such a change? How can this be replicated? I couldn't find a single thing that was any different than usual in the days prior, such as food, drink, sleep, supplements, weather, etc.

          I usually can find the culprit(s) responsible for the not-so-good physical function days - the days in which my nerve signals are erratic, sluggish, or fizzle out early.

          In any case, if I should make a discovery, you guys will be the first to know.

          Same goals for next week.

          Daily: Up on feet and light activity (walk/stand) 6X a day @ 30 min each + Stretches throughout the day + Breathing exercises

          4X Per Week: In-chair ab crunches (20 each time) + Arm, Leg, Core, and Back Exercises


          Be strong and of good courage, be not afraid nor dismayed...

              Pretty great week in general everyone!

              Seasha, I (we) know about that "lack of motivation" but recognizing a positive attitude as the priority in next weeks goals.... That's mental exercise in my playbook! Also have to comment on Mamabug's week: You are back! despite the hardware glitch. Boudreaux! Wow. That's all got, Wow.

              I made a good week out of it. We (trainer) are opening up to more thinking on the fly. Usually I follow her lead (Jump! How high?). Now I'm voicing my thoughts more often. Sometimes... another unsuccessful attempt, but success (often minor) this week.

              KoKo said she usually can find the culprit(s) responsible for the not-so-good physical function days. Maybe, but I'm not there. My latest thinking is simpler. Make the effort any way, every way.

              I rediscovered this again.... Think of the comparison of free weights vs machine. Free weights require you to establish form, maintaining position in time and space while doing repetitions. Machine exercise requires strength only, working against or toward one preset direction.

              Working against resistance on a machine, my efforts are rewarded. Without resistance is harder, you need to locate your extremities in time and space first then do routine. Harder, but I think it is the way to go since I am often unaware of my exact foot position

              Next weeks goal will be to position myself on my back and establish a 30 or 45 second routine comprised of bicycling clockwise / counter clockwise, knees to chest / legs straight, legs straight up / legs spread. Maybe 3 or 4 of each. Stop, rest then repeat.

              Benefit should be mentally finding my body in space and syncing right and left sides in time. Start by working against gravity, later add ankle weights. This exercise could enhance my mind-body connection as well as strength.... Shoot for the moon, land on the roof!

              Ps. Glad for your good week KoKo!

                Love this quote Jer!

                Glad to see that you, KoKo and Boudreaux all had a good week and held onto positive attitudes.

                  Looks like a super plan, Jer! Good luck!

                  For me, the culprits are: high humidity / high dew point, getting too warm, overactivity, poor sleep the previous night, having a virus, infection, or fever.
