This may be a bit different from what you've seen before. But it has worked for me in the past and I know if I get consistent with it again it will work for me again. Haven't been doing any exercising with any regularity for some time. I have access to my daughter's car most of the time so I don't do nearly the amount of walking I used to. I need to change that again and get walking. But today the focus is on ... my weight-lifting program. I have to start everything very small if I want it to work. And exercise is no exception. Today I got out my 3.5 lb weights, and did -- count 'em! -- 1 curl, 1 raise from the side, 1 from the front, and 1 from the back. That's it for now. My shoulders and elbows are crappy these days (in part from doing too much knitting over the winter and in part from doing way too much typing since April.) So I have to be VERY careful or they really break down badly. So, today, I lifted weights. Tomorrow I see whether my shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands or neck are traumatized. If not, I may do it all again. If they are, I will wait until they are better ... and do it again. Sounds quite paltry and it is. And apparently that is why it works for me. I have started this way before and over time worked up to 2 half hour walks, morning and evening, a half hour of exercise including some pilates and yoga, and a half hour of weights every other day. I've had to do this startover more than once because I've had a few crashes over the years. But they weren't precipitated from my bunny-slope of exercise increases, it was other factors. After 2 months of no activity though, I'd have to start again. Like today.
