Well, water walking didn’t work so well for me. It is too much for me to drive there, change, get in the water, shower, change, and drive home. I tried. I have not purchased the DVD set either. My current health simply isn’t strong enough for these activities. I have begun walking my dog again. I spend an extra ten minutes a few times a week when I walk him around my neighborhood and I take him to the dog park about once a week. I pay for this with increased pain in my body, but my mind thanks me.
The current trend to exercise in order to feel better is great in theory. I completely agree that one should get everyday and spend time moving their bodies. However, the push to do this is not realistic for all of us. I do not want to feel like I am coping out when I can’t do what others are able to. So, I don’t. I do what I can and leave the rest.
