Back to original plan.

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Sure wish i had help on figuring this out. It gets tough figuring things out on your own but how else am i going to learn stuff. So i figured out no matter how fast i go either walking or biking the calorie burn is about the same for both. Never figured that one. So I will go back to my normal walking and go by time instead of distance and do my bike just a little at a time for one thing til im used to doing it again and work up to doing that longer. This just gets so darn frustrating. Trying to do more but with the feet problems i have i cant so i have to stick to these two things for now. Im hoping that when i lose more weight I will finally be able to start jogging or something but until then I just cant do it yet without my feet hurting.

    I can understand not wanting to exercise in front of friends. Is there some exercise you can do in your room? There are exercises that you can do from your chair, even dvds that you can follow. Exercise from your chair could be good so you don't aggravate your feet problem. You could do a search online to give you ideas of Chair exercises.
    Thanks for posting on the Omaha wall. I'm living in Africa but return to Omaha at the end of November. After that we'll have an Omaha get together somewhere in town so people can meet each other. We've had a number of these over the years.

    Thanks Januine. The main problem i have with my feet are I had a bunion surgery on one and am getting another one on my other foot, my toes hurt all the time and it almost drops me when the hard pain hits. I have seen another foot doctor a few months ago and he tells me that instead of me walking on the ball of my big toe I put all my weight on the toe next to it so now i have a pad that goes under the small toes and i wear supports in my shoes as well. I wake up in the morning and its hard for me to walk on them it just feels like they are twice the size of what they are supposed to be. I just hope these pads help me to adjust where i walk on them and then i should be ok, i think, time will tell. Right now doing other things for me is out of the question, I live with a friend and there literally is no room to do anything anywhere in the house. I refuse to do my exercises in front of them. You have to know these people. Im trying to find a place of my own but that is pretty tough right now.

    Sorry you're having problems with your feet. I can empathize. I suffer from neuropathy myself and it frustrates me sometimes. Have you considered working out with weights from time to time. Building muscle can also burn calories. Just some light hand weights can make the difference. Also resistance training with resistant bands can do it as well. Be sure and invest in well padded and good fitting shoes. Congrats on the walking.
