What do you do for exercise?

Are you part of the yoga fad?

Or the crossfit fad?

Do you go to a gym?


Take some type of classes that involve being physical?

I’m in a slump.

I’m bored.

It’s not (consistently) warm enough to swim yet this year.

I need something new.

Oh, and only one of my arms works …. and it’s the wrong/non-dominant/uncoordinated arm.

    I started to say something like Zumba.. But I think Paul Newman might have some better suggestions. Have you asked him yet?

    I’m trying to come up with some “loner” exercises for me (I don’t like classes) and the best I’ve come up with is swimming or hiking. Tried and true stuff, I guess. Hope you get some great ideas!

    These days it’s walking and working in the yard. I’m just waiting for our community pool to open, then we’ll begin swimming several days a week again.

    I agree with Kathy – ask Paul Newman what he thinks would be best for you.

      Paul Newman.
      I hate asking a man to determine my fate! : )

    I take yoga classes and bellydancing classes. (It helps tremendously that I have friends that teach these things ~ extra accountability to show up.) I don’t mind going to the gym, but the pickin’s are slim in my little town, and I hate the girl-drama that is involved. :/

    I agree with the other ladies – ask Paul Newman for suggestions. I do think Zumba could be a lot of fun if you like dancing, or bellydancing, etc. Dance is awesome, but I’m a bit biased, lol! I know there are many modifications for yoga, too (chair yoga, etc, but not hot yoga. Too easy to overextend muscles, imo.) Are there drop in classes you can try? Can you talk to instructors and find out about modifications before you take a class? Check out their training and knowledge first?

    The research could be entertaining, as to what’s out there, if nothing else, as a diversion until it warms up enough to swim. (Or, are there any indoor pools at all? Asks the northern Canadian.) 😉

      I’ve heard bellydancing is a lot of fun.
      I wonder if I can do it minus one arm?
      I’ve been told I’d need two arms for yoga.

      I think you’re right – I’ll have to try out a few different things and see what can be modified for me.

    I do yoga at home a few days a week, I walk often, kayak when weather is warm, ride my horse when weather is good, some crunches here and there… it’s really random but it’s the only way I don’t get bored.

    • Suzanne

      That’s it – I need a horse!
      So good for the legs and butt!

    –>I work full time and have a younger child who just started baseball. Last week my husband ordered us each FitBit’s to track our steps. Now that I have him to compete against, I’m walking at lunch and at baseball practice. I don’t have time (or motivation) to go to the gym on my own.

    • Suzanne

      I love my fitbit.
      I have the fitbit zip … it’s so cute!
      It’s great you’re competing with your husband!

    • Suzanne

      Dancing sounds like a good idea and a lot of fun!

    I saw this photo on Facebook this morning and it made me smile. This is such a moment captured. This should be their official wedding photo for it speaks volumes about the life they will have together. Congrats to you ‘other mom’. And thanks for sharing such a lovely story.
