I’m trying to keep up my New Year’s resolution of exercising, but I’m struggling! I can’t easily leave the house to participate in classes or go to the gym, and I don’t have anyone to encourage me or hold me accountable for exercising at home.
I know I’m not the only one feeling like this! Would anyone else like to become long-distance workout buddies on this website?
- What motivates you to exercise?
- What are your goals?
- What exercise activities do you enjoy or find work the best for you?
If you’re interested, let’s encourage each other and share our accomplishments. Maybe this will help motivate positive change in our lives.
I also am trying to eat adequate protein at each meal every day to maintain muscle mass.
Anyone else getting back into their exercise routines as Spring has sprung? Anything new that you’re trying? 👟 🎾 🥾
the reality? i'm munching my chocolate easter eggs 3 days before i'm allowed to! and drinking hot chocolate. and about to put whipped cream, again. straight into my mouth.
Maybe I should add black strap molasses to the lemon water?I
"I will look for you.
I will find you.
And we will train legs."
I am doing a program called Mighty Health that is through Renew Active, doesn't cost me a dime. The same sort of deal, I am sure they just be keeping data for some study. Mighty Health is completely online. They have a YouTube channel with their exercise videos. Of course the channel is called Mighty Health.
hit the gym
lift the bar."
Maybe, that is what I have to do. Drink some water ‘before’ my coffee like you do. I tend to head straight for the coffee pot.
I wasn’t as concerned about it until my doctor discussed my labs with me and said that so many people are dehydrated and don’t even realize it.
I do drink herbal tea and love it so I thought I might try some of those icee instead of hot. I would get more water that way since the ice is melting in the glass.
I tend to sip drinks and like Gershun said, I don’t meet the daily requirements.
I found chugging a big glass of water before my morning coffee and breakfast is a good way to get in some extra fluids (but I usually don't bother🤷🏻♀️).
My doctor told me to aim for 64 oz a day and I am struggling to drink that much water.
They are going to keep an eye on my labs.
Although coffee and tea can act as diuretics studies have shown that for most people there is a net benefit, especially for those who are regular users - no need to avoid either one.
Studies have also mostly debunked the whole drink X litres of water a day advice
I eat cucumbers too. They are hydrating.
Is diluted tea as hydrating as water? I love coffee and I know that it is a diuretic and dehydrating.
I mainly cycle on my exercise bike and walk. Thinking about adding some weight training. I don’t need to lose weight, mainly want to build muscle strength. My bone density test was okay. I have had severe breaks in the past. I have steel rods in my arm after an accident from years ago.
My doctor told me that I have stage three kidney disease and to stay hydrated.
I hear you about passwords. For things like YouTube where it doesn't matter if someone hacks my password I use a password that I use for other sites that can be hacked with little consequence. And once I am logged in I stay logged in.
And I don't want to go through the hassle of trying to find a site or install an app to download new music that isn't going to cause problems, VLC media player was supposed to be able do it but it doesn't work for me. Keep in mind I'm cheap, I don't want to pay I want to listen for free. (Which is why I make due with other people's playlists)
Why the reluctance?
Can you play the workout video and mute it?
Then play your own music from your cell phone?
Gershun you will get there. Patience.
