taking a new tack...

The rebounder took me out of commission for several days. My calves were so sore I couldn't go up and down stairs and just hobbled around for days. SO, I'm thinking bouncing on a tramp isn't a very natural form of exercise! (How often do you do that in real life?)

Today I'm creating my own workout. I'm starting with 10 minutes on the stationery bike (while watching a 10 minute segment of Pride and Prejudice on You Tube).

Next, arm exercises using 5 lb. weights.

Shoulder raises-15 reps
Bicep curls-30 reps
Triceps-15 reps
Overhead press-20 reps

Then reverse crunches: 40 reps

This little 15 min. or so workout is certainly better than nothing, and hopefully I'll increase toward summer and be ready to start walking/jogging. At least, I hope to lose few pounds and firm up.

Tomorrow I will do my series of Pain Free excercises for flexibility (if I can find the book).

I'm back...again!

Wow, it's been two months since I've posted anything (or done anything)!

We ordered an Urban Rebounder and today I did the "First Timer" workout, which is about 10 minutes long and just gets you used to working out on the rebounder.

I did it barefooted today, but I'll try it with shoes tomorrow. Really works the feet and calves, but I noticed a little torsion on my left knee and I don't HAVE knee problems. Maybe shoes will help stabilize that.
