Exercise for the less mobile

Hello! Me again. I have to loose weight as I am a porker truth be known. 20 years on sodium valporate has left me with a spare tire or two. I don’t eat huge amounts of bad food but my diet has not helped. Seeing I am pretty house bound as I can’t get out on my own, I need some gentle exercise. For my 40th birthday I was given a digital drum kit. This has prooved excellent excerise and weight is now begining to drop off. However I am interested in some other exercise’s that I can do around the house that don’t involve to my “up and down” stairs action as it’s pretty much a twice a day deal for me as I have to haul myself up them. Any suggestions??? Thank you!

That is inspired! Thanks! Never thought of that and we do have one! Also I could rope my daughter in as well!!! I can set it up in the dinning room where I have my big TV that I can get near to (sight issues mean can’t see it unless I am close up) But that will defo work for some of the games on there! Brilliant! Strudders

your very welcome :slight_smile: i got mine set up in the livingroom . big screen television and space to swing my arms around . i do get a bit fanatic sometimes :oops: love tina x.

Hi Strudders The MS society have a dvd of exercises that you can do in a wheelchair. Hope this helps, but the WII would be a brilliant idea. Take carePam :smiley:

The MS Trust have a DVD too with Mr Motivator. Very tiring. Only just got my MS Society one so haven’t tried it out yet - typical me - forgotten where I put it!

Cheers Pam and NatM! I will have a look at getting it! I have been bimbling about doing “stuff” today. So I am cream crackered. However my office is clean and the washing is done. Strudders
