New Exercise Routine (Rhymes with Poutine)


 Sausages, cocktail franks, cheese and the like are all fattening unless impaled on frilled toothpicks. The insertion of a sharp object allows the calories to leak out the bottom.

I don't think so!

I need a new exercise routine. I thought about going back to water aerobics but the thought of my leg dislocating while under water, terrifies me. So I Googled (yep, another new verb). Oh my! When I specified “no legs” I got a bunch of bench press exercises for upper body strength. Hell, I’ve got upper body strength, I lift my considerable body weight every time I stand up with the walker.  My triceps, biceps, and deltoids are growing, “bulking up” as they say in the gym. Maybe the pecs will get involved and perkiness will ensue. (Women know what this means!!!)


So, I put in “wheelchair exercise” and got great results. I like the idea of the chair belly dancing but my belly seems to do that on its own, with and without music! There are YouTube videos, DVD’s you can buy but lots of exercise programs and pictures. Good sigh! Dana had me doing some of these before my leg went sideways. I can do these. I have my exercise band, too. has great ideas that are good even for people spending the day at work stuck in a chair.  Not all of us are in wheelchairs but office chairs are just as restrictive. Think about what you can do in the car, too. But maybe singing at the top of your lungs is better for your lung capacity. So, once again, I have no excuse for not exercising. I found lots of chair yoga, too. Namaste!

My friend, Nansi, sent me a new exercise routine to contemplate. It does involve water, I think! This is Larry Griswold with Frank Sinatra 1951. Yep, before I was even born. Thanks for listening. ;D Diane Kirby
