I was just curious as to how much daily exercise everyone is getting. I’m roughly walking between 5-8 miles a day, I work at a hospital and there is always somewhere to go.

I recently stepped mine up because I had a slight gain over the holidays. I'm doing weights 2x a week and cardio 3-4x a week (usually Water aerobics or some kind of dance cardio - like Zumba or WERQ. Although I've even done 30 minutes on the stationary bike when I'm not in the mood to do anything else. Anything is better than nothing...)

I've got knee issues et al. So I'm happy if I can get 5000 steps in, and that is at a dog walking, smelling the flowers pace. Come summer I'll be kayaking and swimming.

I am all over the place. Some weeks I walk 4-5 miles almost every day. Last weekend I walked 10 miles and 14 miles (Sat/Sun). I haven't walked since then. This weekend I will do some more really long walks, but I do hope to walk more during the work week. My daughter can't drive to her after school activities since She doesn't have her drivers license, and it is hard to get my workouts in every day like I would like to. She gets her license next month though so I am excited. At that time I hope to go back to doing Pilates at least twice a week. Those classes are 45-60 minutes and I tend to walk a couple miles afterwards. I am not doing weights or anything right now. I MAY try to join a Zumba class, if I can get through it without my heart rate getting too fast like it has in the past.

Every day: at least 10,000 steps, 30 flights of stairs (increasing as I work toward a Grand Canyon hike), 150 wall pushups, leg exercises, upper body weights, and stretching.

Every week: 40-50 miles of biking, 15-25 miles of hill hiking (increasing monthly), elliptical machine on days I cannot hike or bike due to weather or darkness. Will start back with swimming next month as I train toward a triathlon in March.

I work full time as a nurse, and am on my feet all day, every day. I also have a large garden and livestock, so I am always digging or shoveling one thing or another.

I wish I had half the energy some of you guys have! I watch my two grandsons ages 3 and 1 five days a week. After that I enjoy long sits on the couch instead of long bike rides or hikes 🤣 You guys are doing great!

I have shredded menisci (both knees) but I still try to exercise as much as I can without my knees locking up or overwhelming pain. I love to exercise, but at 66 yrs old I can't do it every day like when I was younger.

Cardio: I power walk (16 min/mi) for 1-1.5 hrs every other day.

Weight training, upper and lower body: 45-60 min. every other day.

1 hour walking the dog at the very least 4 times a week (often before going to work). I do this more for my head than my body to be honest.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        Congratulations. It’s a great feeling when the weight disappears & you can start to do so much more. 😁

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
