My PT trainer says I won't need her assistance for much longer. I'm making excellent progress. Yay! Just like logging my food each day, I also track my PT exercises and walking. My exercises include stretches, strengthening and balance. I am amazed at the number of muscles used to balance on one foot! Did you know that besides ears and muscles, your balance is also controlled with your eyes? Focusing on a spot at eye level and across the room greatly improves my one-legged stands. Another plus is that this exercise can be done any time of day, and most anywhere. Standing in line at the grocery store is a great place. (It's good for toe-lifts too.) My walking is up to 1.5 miles now. I am working towards my first goal of 3 miles. Then I can start walking for groceries, coffee, and dining out. I increase the distance by another quarter mile every 3rd outing. I will do this! After that, I will start walking/hiking on hills again. Grin! Have a good week everyone.

    Yup, I knew that but I've been studying to become a personal trainer. WTG! Keep pushing!

    As a tai chi person, I DID know that! I often stand on one foot while gassing up the car, standing in line -- almost anywhere and everywhere. It's one of my tai chi instructor's (he's in his late 70's) favorite stories about how the doctor wanted to know how long he could stand on one foot. He said "However long you want me to. How long can you?" After demonstrating, he informed the doctor that most of his tai chi students could do the same thing.
