@susu2 Yea, we sure do have our mountains. And the soreness and anxiety that comes along when we first start moving. Check out the post by @contentandwell —she posted an exercise video that’s good for us ‘older’ folks. You might also ask your doctor for a referral to physical therapy to help you get started moving.
I know you can do it! Just the fact that you’re talking about getting moving really means something. Just a few steps today and a few more tomorrow. You go, girl!

@becsbuddy @susu2 Joanna Marcinekova has many more similar videos. I don’t use hers often but I do subscribe to her channel.

I generally do Jenny McClenden’s videos. She caters to over 50 and beginners but if you can stand when you exercise, she’s great and does offer accommodations for people who are not up to doing exactly what she does. Shellea Fowler, who is in Australia, also has some good videos but my personal favorite is Jenny, who also happens to be a physical therapist which gives me confidence that she is doing the right things.

There are so many excellent exercise videos on YouTube, even Jane Fonda has good ones that revolve around walking. If you go to YouTube and do a search for something like “senior fitness” or “chair exercises” I’m sure you will find many.
