fit kristine: 4 thoughts and a link

| No TrackBacks

I've been thinking about being fit and exercise. Here are 4 things in my brain:

  1. I have historically had a hard time with consistency in my workout. My illnesses, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, kind dictated that. There were months and years where my greatest success was walking up and down the stairs a few times a day, or getting the mail. Right now, I can do a little more than that. So recently, I've been captivated by the concept Roni threw out into the interwebs of "what you can, when you can" (see #wycwyc on twitter). That model is one that fits well with my challenges.
  2. I also love measurable changes. So watching the data from mapmywalk and seeing increases in distance and speed has been making me feel super. I've been watching for cloud breaks to take advantage of as many rain-free days as I can before Washington becomes all-rain, all-the-time for a few months. Even then, I've been trying to remind myself that I don't melt and I can get a better raincoat and keep walking some! I'm considering walking the Virtual Turkey Trot on thanksgiving morning to celebrate and be thankful for my health.
  3. I'm still working on accepting the truth that my health is still my primary focus right now. As much as I'd like there to be an end in sight, it's a journey that will take my time away from most other activities in my life.
  4. I've been learning more about eating appropriately for my activities. Stay tuned for more on that in the future.

Also, my questions were answered in a blog post on Exercising with Fibromyalgia by the fabulous fitnessy Fun and Fit twins, and it made me look like a rockstar! I am currently doing yoga/pilates, walking, light dumbbell weights, and my exercise bike. I would like to try hula hooping, kettle bells, and maybe even Zumba or swimming someday down the road. Their post is great for anyone learning how to balance their fitness activities to best fit their needs.

...and that's the story!
