Thumbs up Rozzie's Fitness Attempt

It's not often I venture into the Exercise Forums, but from now on, I shall try to venture here daily.

It has been a while since I exercised regularly, so I think it may help if I document my progress here.

My exercising goals:

- To improve my metabolism sufficiently to recommence a touch of actual weight loss.
- To improve my injured back.
- To keep my joints moving to the point where my osteoarthritis presents less of a problem.
- To tighten up my flabby upper arms.

My measurements (I'm pretty impressed with my gutsiness in doing this!) in centimetres:
[26/4 I've just found my original measurements, so shall add them in]
Bust 107 102
Waist 101 89
Hips 113 110
Upper arm 36.5 34.5
Forearm Dnm 27
Thigh 64 62
Calf 44 41

I intend to post my measurements here every month.

Today's exercise:

Rebounding: 20 mins
Pilates ball and mat ex: 10 mins (restricted by shoulder pain)
Bicep curls (2.5kg weights): 8,8,8
Triceps thingies (1.2 kg weights): 8,8,12

Steps for 2005

It's interesting, I reeeeally didn't feel like exercising today. I put it off until tonight and then knew I had no more excuses. After all, I have to write it down here. Couldn't abandon my little log so soon.
So, I've just finished about 70 mins worth.

Rebounding: 25"
Biceps curls: 10,10,10
Pecs thingies: 10
Triceps thingies: 10,10,10
Back ex: 20:

I'd have liked to have done more, but was too tired. I guess something's better than nothing. A bit.

I also worked a full ICU shift - was on my feet for much of the 8 hours. Surely that counts for something!

The back exercises are certainly getting easier. I had not been able to do them for 2 months and they were hard to get back to. A real Catch-22 - the back pain won't be alleviated unless I exercise, but hard to do the exercises when my back's hurting! But things are improving - I hope!

Hmm, the "taking it easy" continues.

Yesterday (Thurs) I only managed 20 mins on the rebounder. Tried for more later but my back was just too sore. Ditto on the back exercises.

And today is a total day of rest. Waking up with a foul headache, sore tum as well as the usual aches and pains will do that to you!
Feeling a bit better now, but will not push the old bod.

Tomorrow is another day!

I'm determined to get fit...one day.

So far today, I have walked - fairly briskly - for 20 mins. More to follow...

My head was hurting too much for any walking or rebounding, but I did manage to do about 10 minutes of very gentle back exercises and also attacked my arms.
Biceps 10,10,10
Pecs 8,8
Triceps 10,10,10

I managed a 25 minute walk today.
And a bare 10 minutes' worth of back exercises. Every little helps...

Doing better today.

Managed 20 minutes worth of back exercises and I plan to do another set tonight.

Arm attack:
Biceps 10,10,12
Pecs 10,10
Triceps 12,12,15 I swear my arm flab will reduce one day! And surely this will help the shoulder OA too.

It's now afternoon, and I have had a brisk 25 minute walk.

And it's now nearly 9 PM. Another 10 mins of back exercises. A pretty good day for me. Considering my back is pretty sore, I think I've done a pretty good job!
