First of all I realize that probably no one will want to do this with me - that’s okay.
Why am I doing this (I really do not want to at all) well, its because I think it may help me and maybe someone else out there in our scz forum world might think it would help them?
Rather than recant the story of Jeb, lets skip to - I have gained weight in this journey and have dropped exercising down so much that I feel weak. I remember feeling much stronger and want to get that back. Okay, taking care of my mom recently after her open heart surgery has made me realize that I can’t afford to be this weak. If you can’t get out of a chair or off the couch without using your hands or arms you should give joining me some thought.
Years ago I learned that if I did 60 minutes of actual exercise a day, every day I didn’t have to worry about what I ate. I have been able to bribe myself to try this by promising myself there will be no dieting involved whatsoever.
What I do need is for people to join me for accountability’s sake, support and ideas. Not looking for folks to advise me, looking for folks to join me.
Its a 60 minute daily commitment - doesn’t have to be 60 minutes at once - personally, I break mine up, I just make sure the effort is enough to leave me breathing hard.
If interested respond to this thread, I can make another thread or we can do a separate private message group though the forum if thats preferred.
Where did 60 minutes come from? When I was in my twenties, the word was that 20 minutes 3 times a week would keep you in shape. I tried it, it was not true. Years later some medical authority said 20 minutes a day would do it, I tried it, not true. Decades later when I needed to be stay healthy to donate a kidney, the medical folk said “well, its 60 minutes…a day”. Oh, uh, wow. But that number was true. But its a hard horse to climb up on and harder to stay on.
