I did workouts in a gym sporadically for six or seven years and was consistent in going to the gym two or three times a week for three of those years. But I stopped going to the gym thirteen months ago now. I hired someone to teach me how to use free wieghts at home, though I only did that faithfully for several months. Maybe I'll get back to that, I'm not sure.
My 'workouts' now consist of walks with the dog several times a week, plus doing stretching and strengthening exercises several times a week. Usually one of those walks will be with my husband and the dog for a several hours' stretch of time.
I'd like to play badminton, if I could get myself out of the house at nighttime to do so... we'll see...
I'm borrowing my Mom's small trampoline --- it's presently in our living room and I try to get on it a couple of times a day -- after reading that article, I'll be on it longer than usual, today, lol!
It's amazing how much more energy I had when I was weight training. I miss that, though some fo my exercises do also include a weight element. I do need to raise my heart rate more frequently. i have jogged before; I guess I could try jogging again on warm winter days. Or just snowshoe up and down hills more often.
**THANKS for the encouragement, Phil.
