    Sunshine 2's Keep On Moving thread - November

    It's late but here it is--what you've been waiting for: the Keep On Moving thread that our friend Sunshine 2 has been starting for us, and in her absence I'm taking the liberty of posting it (belatedly). This is the message she starts with:

    MS creates some real challenges to keep on moving. It helps to inspire each other on how to find ways to move.

    Did you stretch in your bed, swing your arms, roll side to side today? Or perhaps you did housework? Or exercised in a pool? Tracked your count of steps? Chased your cat around the home? Pushed the wheelchair wheels with your arms at the store? Post them here and we can support and egg each other on.

    REMEMBER: this is a keep on moving thread, not keep on exercising! Any moving is important it doesn't have to be exercise! Even Science proves that.
    I haven't yet figured up my step count average for October but here are some November step counts:

    11/1 - 2239 steps
    11/2 - 1643 "
    11/3 - 2752 "
    11/4 - 2118 "
    11/5 - 1911 "
    11/6 - 1684 "
    11/7 - 1339 "
    11/8 - 1332 "
    11/9 - data missing
    11/10 - 1210 steps
    11/11 - 2205 "
    11/12 - 2313 "
    11/13 - 2085 "

      Thanks for being a cheerleader, Virginia!

      I still have 2-lb. dumbbell weights gathering dust here but I am keeping up with the 1-lb. weights and they're very slowly getting a little easier. I try to do 10-15 lifts of the 1-lb. weights every other day.

        Do you do different positions with them, such as over the head, out to the side and so on?

          Usually I just do out to the side but sometimes I try over the head, which is much harder for me. I'm using the book I got a while back to make sure I'm doing them right. When I do my 10 or 15, those 10 or 15 would all be using the same position though because I think you're supposed to keep building up strength so you can do more of one type before you get too tired. Being able to do 10 at one time was hard at first but now I'm even able to do 15 but it isn't easy at the end.

            We've talked about this exercise in the past--this article offers some suggestions I'm going to try:

                Good.job again Agate. I have been doing squats for a long time, but unfortunately I miss days when I am just not feeling up to it anymore.

                  Good for you, Virginia, for keeping up with the squats for a long time. Some days when I do them I know I'm doing them in a careless way, just half-doing them. It's hard to get up the time and energy for them at times.
