Years ago I made a resolution never to make another one.
I am happy to say I am still keeping that resolution
Jane, how does your in-home walking program work?
I need to drop about 25 lbs and I know I have to get "above" my standard physical routines of barn work, hoof trimming, and grooming.
I also have Grade III Spondylolisthesis. Grade III is pretty d**n bad:( My lower back has fused itself but I haven't had any new X-rays to see if the middle of my back has done the same. http://www.atlanticspinalcare.com/spinehealth/conditions/spondylolisthesis/
Point-being, if I get on a horse once a year for 20 minutes, it's a miracle and my exercising is very limited. I am thankful I can still do everything I do at the barn.
Not being as active as I want to be has caused me to gain around 25 lbs. I still eat the same amount of food but I'm way less active because I wear out so fast.
So I'd be really interested in hearing how in-home walking works
Note to all you younger folk that have injuries: They don't go away, they just keep building arthritis until one day you discover you can barely move. Take care of yourselves now. Keep your weight down, and eat as healthy as you can. Ditch the cokes and potato chips for an apple or banana while you're driving down the road to your next task.
Too much white flour and things full of preservatives really really aggravate my arthritis issues.
