    The Goalposters check-in 11-11-2021

    5 checked in last week.

    1 made goals
    2 made partial goals.
    2 didn't set goals, but I'm glad when you check in anyways. It's good to hear from you.


    ​​​​​​Exercisers: Feel free to join us. You set your own goals. You can keep the same goals week-to-week, or modify them. You decide if you accomplished them. Check in once a week to let us know how you did last week.

    Hi everyone!

    I achieved my exercise goals, for which I am grateful.

    My week, overall, went well. Some smooth times and some challenging times were in the mix.

    The challenging times go better when I am calm and focused.

    My sister is still my care helper. She does a fabulous job, and works hard when she comes over.

    I'm very fortunate!

    My exercise goals will continue as they are for next week.

    Daily: Up on feet and light activity (walk/stand) 5X 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

    May we be calm, patient, strong, and of good courage.​

      Hi everyone!

      Just checked and found that 15 days have passed since I last had a chance to post. And have to admit that it does seem like a long time.

      Today was the first day of stretching in those 2 weeks. Yikes! Didn't feel like it went well but now as I type I'm a bit surprised at how I feel.

      Only 30 minutes ago I returned from my first session at my new gym. Stayed with upper body / core. New equipment.... new learning curve. Maybe an hour. 4 people, all older (yes, older than me!), all on cardio equipment with one gentleman venturing into the various upper body section.

      All in all.... I'm thinking that the "lift" I am experiencing is a result of getting those 2 week old stagnant endorphins up and running. Have no other explaination. Truly happy.

      Next week more gym and, wait for it.... pool. Yeah

        Hey there Jer!

        Great to hear that your endorphins are up and running again from working out at your new gym!

        Looking forward to your pool report.

        Glad to know that you're in a happy space!
