I spend an appalling amount of time sitting in my car and then sitting at my desk. I wish I spent more time sleeping! One of many good things about my new practicum is that I will be walking for at least an extra 20 minutes a day from the parking deck to the library.
I have just discovered the Obesity Panacea blog. I have osteoarthritis in my knee and am determined to lose weight. I like this blog because it is research based and presents important information without judging. Obesity is not a character flaw. I know I’m overweight. I’ve been feeling frustrated about how difficult it is for me to exercise, especially with a painful knee. These articles give me hope that with incremental changes I can improve my health.
Exercise = therapy, if not medicine!
