1 Week


I'm not dead yet from the exercise. It's been one week and it is not a habit yet. I'm trying a water aerobic class this evening to see if that will cut down on some of the joint pain. With the connective tissue disease it's improtant not to over do it and protect the joints. My doctor recommended this, so I'm giving it a shot. So far the most painful thing is thinking about wearing a swimingsuit in public! Scary thought! Getting fit was something I really wanted to work on this year. So better late than never to start!

Hey - I just started my exercise regimen, too. Never too late for good health!

Yes! Isn't it awful how the bathing suit feeling is much worse than the exercise? I could so relate.

Keep it up Wanda, 20 day total to create a habbit (in theory) and you've got 8 under your belt. And great job for readjusting your workout to fit better with your life. If something gives you too much pain, try something else. Thats what a doc would say, and you did it on your own. So good job. Keep at it! :-)

Sounds like lots of fun! Water Arobics are the easiest on ones joints. It has been recommended for me also because of my fibromyalgia. I hope you enjoy! Wish I was there with ya to do the exercises too!

I read on another blog that you had PTSD and followed the link over here as it's something I struggle with myself. You have a great site and I've bookmarked it so I can return again.

Best of luck in your new exercise program and that water aerobics too. I did those years n' years ago and absolutely loved though I always love anything that involves being in water. I must be part fish or something. ;)

i thought it was 30 days to start a habbit... or is that to break a habbit?

Keep up the good work! I hope the water aerobics work out well for you!
