Smile Join group

Yes I would like to join the group. It can start for you with little steps, set a small goal for yourself and keep track of it, then as you reach that goal set a further smalled goal, in your case steps to work up to what you can handle

But it was much easier to commit to a small goal...and I ended up with my PhD when many others did not.

So. I would love to set big fitness goals, but I can't right now, as I just had major abdominal surgery. I decided today that I will walk up and down the stairs twice in the morning and twice in the evening. Lame, eh? But I KNOW that I can achieve this goal...whereas if I said I'd walk 20 minutes each morning and afternoon I would not (and can't at the moment).

And I'm not going to ask hubby to get me things. I will get up and get my own glass of water, even if he's already up and in the kitchen.
