Still Extra Stepping

I am happy to report that I am still doing the extra stepping exercise program through my manual treadmill and walking extra steps whenever I can get out and about. I also started using a stationary bike about three months ago, so that I could stay more active over the winter when I couldn’t get out to bike in the snow and cold, when it was too cold.

As always I would like to be a lot further along in my efforts of being more physically active. But some days it is just too much for me, so I don’t exercise a few days a week, usually. I am happy that the exercise helps moderate my moods, helps my muscles relax, decreases my level of pain in my legs and hips, and usually contributes to better sleep.

I haven’t lost any weight for months, but I also haven’t gained any. I’m not dieting or doing anything restrictive. I’d really rather be farther along on the weight issue, as weighing more always causes me more pain.

I’ve reached a point in my life where I really love myself and don’t care what others think of my body. It’s not just body acceptance but a real love and acceptance of who I am and what I do. It’s really kind of nice to be on this side of love. I think that doing Soul Retrieval work and self-esteem work has brought me to this place and I want to blog soon about both of those things in the near future.

  1. that is great that your excercise program is giving you all those positives benefits. im sure the loss will come in time–it comes faster if you eat 5 small (300calorie) meals, heavy on protein. somehow that revs up your metabolism. im hoping to buy a manual treadmill soon myself.

    • Hi Kat,

      Thanks dear. I am happy that I have lost 30 pounds already, though I have not lost anything for over six months, well two pounds up and down over and over, so nothing cumulative. Medications of any kind tend to make me gain, so I am trying to avoid most medications as much as possible.

      Good luck to your in your own activity efforts. Good and healing thoughts to you.

  2. Good for you! I hate exercise myself, but it’s so useful for decreasing pain and regulating my moods…but prior to having the treadmill desk, it was all I could do to force myself into 30 min three times a week. I’m really lucky to have the option of work/walking, which makes it seem a lot less like exercise.

    • Hi David,

      I can very much relate to not liking exercise. I try to distract myself as much as possible. Biking, out on the roads, doesn’t seem like exercise, so that is great. Stationary biking is excruciating to me, but it is helping me build up some endurance. I wish I could walk as much as you do, can’t do much more than a few minutes at a time and walking is what really gives me the best results. I wish that I could do other things that I used to love to do; walking, jogging, dancing, and dodgeball. Well, I will keep dreaming.

      Good luck to you in your continued efforts. Good and healing thoughts to you.
