Had an amazing Saturday, which is also my weekly (Slow Carb) Cheat Day. Was TOO HOT, HUMID to cheat much (food-wise). YES, I DID work out. Had a wonderful, intense cardio (trampoline) workout. Soon, a beverage (and more water), a shower, and get ready for bed, praying the temperature drops more during the night. #StayHydrated

Welcome, LeotasGarden! About your arthritis, have you tried adding the anti-inflammatory spice turmeric to your daily eating? And cut down on sugar & "simple" carbs? If you take prescription medications, definitely first check with your doc. Cheers!

Yesterday I did. Today, not quite yet. Think I'll do some resistance (strength), and also some time on the mini-trampoline! It's grocery day, and also day for prepping our recycling, compost, and a little bit of trash.

Yes! Worked out today. Trampoline (bouncing), a 10-minute dumbbell workout for shoulders and arms, plus walking and running errands.

CherylAnnMeyers! Hi there! Don't be hard on yourself. Obviously, you've had a really demanding schedule, with visitors and everything. If I were you (and I've been in similar situations), I'd take this time to do something fun, and energising, and relaxing for myself, like go for a massage, a facial, or at least a manicure & pedicure. You deserve it.

And, yes, I do have an eating plan, and track food (track pretty much). Best to see a doctor first, and a nutritionist could help a lot, too, to see what your general health status is, and how to implement the right type of food habits for YOU. Nowadays I am sticking with low-carb or "slow-carb" eating, which I think of much more as permanent than as a "diet." I was never much into high-sugar eating, but now that I know that the human body needs ONLY 1 teaspoon of sugar PER DAY, I am even more proudly into low-sugar, low-carb eating.

Take good care!

I SURE COULD USE SOME HELP!! It has been 8 days since I have tracked and or intentionally exercised! We have had company for half of that time and it has been so hot and with work and everything else - I cant seem to get a grasp! I am getting nervous because I dont want to fail. Any suggestions would be so welcome.

Also - do you follow the eating plan or do you make it up as you go?

Yes! Daily fave, mini-trampoline! Plus housework, and climbing a few sets of stairs. The other day I finally jumped rope for the first time in years. Then I ordered myself a new, adjustable knee brace, since one knee was giving me (minor) issues. I hope to add a few seconds' more jumping to each session.

YES! And back in this forum! Hope y'all are fine!

Today: Walked, trampolined, and sprinted a bit. Back on the mini-trampoline before bed (which will be SOON). Take care, everyone!
