Counting your miles 2

Recommended Posts

For those of you who have not in the past done many or any exercising, you may want to check with your Dr. first. You need to find out just how much you should do to start with. For those of you who have any heart problems you really should check with your dr.

 

I know some say that you should start with just a few minutes a day, about 5 - 10 minutes and make sure you don't over do it. You may be able to exercise this length of time 2 or 3 times a day. Then as you are able, you can move up to longer times. I am still under an hour a day, and not even every day as of yet. I do need to get up to at least 5 hours a week.

 

Now, when you exercise, be sure to keep track of how long you exercise. Then each week post your miles in the 'Spa' forum. See, this way we can keep track of the miles.

 

I know that the exercise is one thing that I have to really work at, and have been trying to get it in these past few weeks now.

 

If you make yourself a chart with the days of the week on it and what you are doing to exercise, it is easier to keep track of it.

 

I know I had one, and this is what was listed.

 

Miles walked, Miles biked and then Other exercises. If I ever get to the point where I am doing anything with weights again, I will also put in the list, Time with weights. If you want to, you can also have a space for your weight and BP.

 

I know this helps me keep track of what I am doing.

 

Happy Exercising.

 

 

**************************************

 

Here are what the rules would be.

 

Walking or riding a bike, miles are as done.

 

Going up and down stairs 10 times is one mile.

 

Gardening, house cleaning, shopping, etc., are 1 mile per hour. lois

 

Mowing or raking lawn, 1 hour is 3 miles. For those of you who have not in the past done many or any exercising, you may want to check with your Dr. first.

Gardening, is 1 hour 2 miles, house cleaning, dustingdishesshoppingcart , etc., are 1 mile per hour.

Lifting weights, and other exercise, 30 minutes, is 1 mile.

I hope I didn't miss something, if I did, let me know. I know I have changed some of the things, but, I think 30 minutes doing some exercises should be a mile. You will have to use your own judgement about some of them. smile
