Do you excersize everyday?

I used a Fitbit for eight years. More 38,000,000 steps in the 9 years I had a Fitbit (I stopped as of August 31, 2018) I use my iPhone and Apple Watch now to do the same thing. I like the three circles that the apple watch/iPhone allow me to configure. One is for moving. It measures how many steps I take in a day. My goal is different nine and higher than it should be on purpose.  Doctors now say that women should do around 7500 steps a day and men should do around 10,000 steps a day. My personal goal is 15000 steps. In the past week with my extra pacing nervously, I have shattered that number. I picked 15,000 steps a day because honestly 14500 steps a day over a seven day week puts you at 101500 steps iPhone a week.

Tracking the other two things, the Apple application checks is also interesting. The next thing the watch/phone tracks is how many times you stand. I am working on not sitting for 4 or 5 straight hours and so knowing that I am meeting the stand goal (at least once an hour). The final goal is the number of calories burned in a 12 hour day. Well, it’s a 15 hour day not counting when I am sleeping. When wearing the watch it also tracks the BBM or your heart rate. Resting and in motion, rates are very important bits of information to share with your doctor. The issue for me is that once every other day I have to change my watch for at least an hour, so I lose steps every other day.

Fitness is an interesting question. I don’t participate in cross-fit. My back doesn’t do well with excessive expertise now. I don’t run anymore because my knees are bad. I have settled on using an Eleicptal and walking. I don’t use the elicited seven days a week. I probably should. Do you set exercise goals for yourself? I know that a lot of people in my neighborhood are now walking every day!

Based on that I am curious and will ask some poll questions about what you do for exercise. It is something that interests me for a lot of reasons. Not the least of which is the health benefit.

  2. I go to the gym when I can but I cant do that all the time, my husband is not well and Im here for him. He gets restless and he is disabled so I take him out a lot to give him sanity.

    It gets to the stage that I cant do a lot of things others take for granted because he is completely dependant on me. I do everything. Yet, in this medical process we both have met some wonderful people and I have learned more patience and organising skills.
    Hopefully there are things that I can discover or that he can be healed through time, but it will take a while..trial and error.

  3. I don’t have any exercise schedule, dear friend … except I don’t do any sports activities …. I used to go to the gym regularly for years when I was riding a motorcycle, but now I got sick

  4. I do not have a planned exercise schedule, but am very fit. My work is exercise, wrestling dogs. 😉 I stand all day and walk back and forth to the kennels. On my days off weather permitting, I hike as you know. I still havent made it past the ten mile mark though, it got too hot. Waiting for autumn to kick my miles up. I want to try for 20 miles in a day.

  6. I don’t exercise. I do the Tibetan rites when my back bothers me or if I have ample free time. I gobble up sweets because I cannot live without it. And I eat without counting calories. That my height is still proportioned with my weight is something I would credit to total lack of health consciousness ??

  7. No heavy exercises for me after I broke some ribs and vertebrae 13 years ago. Walking in and out of the house several times in the day is my exericise. I also do pranayamas – a breathing exercise.

  8. I did a lot of walking and biking when I was younger. Now, it is painful for me to walk much. I have DVT, both knees are shot, my right hip is pretty well gone, and I have lower back problems. However, I do exercise. In the spring, summer, and fall, that is primarily with gardening activities and in my “off” time, fishing. In the wintertime, I shovel a lot of snow, which is even more strenuous.

    I don’t count the kind of exercise that involves bending my elbow to bring food from my plate to my mouth, though for a guy who is 6’3.5, I’m underweight, at 165 lbs, which happens to be the same amount that I weighed at the age of 14, in 9th grade. Only, I was 10 1/2 inches shorter then. 😀
