6 week Walking Schedule
 
Ok, so I've gotten to a place with eldercare that's stable, and I've dealt with the vitamin deficiency problems and the sleep problems. So I think I'm at a place where I can actually work on the exercise problem.

I'm having a really hard time incorporating regular fitness at a level I can deal with. I found this 6 week walking schedule that looks doable and plan to start tomorrow.

If any other PCOS beginner's want to join in, I'd love company!

I'm not shooting for perfection, just "passing grade" -- of course I'm hoping for better than a "D" 60% completed, but I'll take a 60%! 60% is way better than 0% (which is what it has been for ages.)

Gotta start somewhere right? And be realistic about my PCOS/time/eldercare challenges. So hoping for better than that, but promising myself to be ok and call it celebration at the 60% bench mark.

Here's goes...

Good luck, astrophe! I hope you get to the point that I did -- exercise is so critical for my well-being, not for my weight loss... :)

I'll be cheering you on from here!:cheer3::cheer3:

Thanks, Rana!

Today was scheduled as easy 5-10 min, 2 min break, easy 5-10 min.

I went with 15, took a break, and went another 15 min because I was having a nice time.

I do not have PCOS, but I just noticed the name of your thread and decided to peek in to see what it was about. I think this is GREAT! I just read the following article in my local newspaper.

Thanks for the link!

Today was a suggested 10-20 min. I went 30 min. Also keeping up my food log with it.

So far so good!

YAY!!!! Awesome!!!

Today was walk 10-15 min but I flipped it with tomorrow's "rest day" because of eldercare. I was worn out to the nubbins and having a bagel on the road sent me into carb coma. I had the same problem last week -- finding self in a bind running errands and the family went with subway. I prefer boston market for "on the road" fast food but clearly I need to make a "safe list" from fast food places!

I have a "safe" food list too and yes, I highly recommend. Will power is not enough sometimes -- it's a question of building habits and avoiding temptation!

Rana,

That is a great idea. Buildings habits not willpower. I am gonna write it out and put in on my frig.

DUH why didn't I ever think of that.

So far I'm on track for week 1.

I saw some weight loss too -- I'm not sure if it is going to "stick" or what because I tend to "visit" a weight like "on the fence" before it moves down for good.

Here's to week 2!

The plan is 10-20 min, so I'll check back in later to "cross it off" my list.

Go me! :carrot:

Nailed it with some yoga.

Enjoying a cup of jasmine tea at the end of my day. Over the weekend I got a massage to help my tight neck -- so all's good.

Go me!

:carrot: awesome job! That seems like a great plan.

I am trying to build up my walking too. I am so out of shape & used to just sitting on my butt all day that anything seemed like alot for me. So I am starting with just walking and going to build up my fitness.

I am taking 25-30 min walk 5-6 days a week and then going in add in a second walk everyday in the evening. Taking my dog for a walk so it really helps me to get up and going.

  • Tues: Another yoga for me.
  • Wed: Swapped out with Fri Rest.
  • Thurs: goal is 10-15 walk. Actual was yoga.
  • Fri: goal is 15-25 min walk Actual was bowling.
  • Weekend: goal 15-20 min walk. Actual was bowling.

I'm doing ok even though I have to jiggle rest days around.

WTG moonkissed! Keep at it. And check in -- I don't mind encouraging others. :)

ETA: I keep experimenting with activities and find I enjoy it.
