I shoot for 60 min 5 to 6 times a week. Yoga 3 to 4 times, running/spin/pilates/biking/hiking other days.

I walked three miles everyday except Sunday. There is three of us that walk everyday except Sunday. It is an enjoyment when you have three people walking with you.
We have several conversation going on all of the times. When we finish walking we go some where to have a cup of coffee and continue our discussion.

Hi msann, I exercise about 3 days out of the week, it's hard for me sometimes because I suffer from nerve damage and its makes it hard for me to exercise sometimes, but when I do it brings my blood sugars down and I've lost weight. I haven't weighed myself because I want to see a big defference.

Bad or cold weather, I go to the mall and walk 40 min. for 2 miles. Now that the weather is getting warmer I will be walking the township streets. I have a route that is 3 miles. I try to do this 7 days a week in the early am hours. Less people out.

Hey, msann. Well, I'm 75 now, broke my right foot last year, at which time I had the terrible experience of being told by doctors that they would not set all of the metatarsal bones, all of which were broken, because I have diabetes. So, my foot is distorted, and always hurts like crazy. So, it's hard to exercise. I do what I can, though, which is not much anymore. I also had to toss almost all of my shoes because the right foot couldn't fit into any of them (except my Nordic Track sneakers which I can adjust).

Depends upon the weather.WE have 2 seasons here: winter and others. I go to the gym 4x/week during winter spending 35-40 minutes during aerobic exercises and another 30-35 minutes using weights. I divide my time during the "other" seasons walking 4-5 miles a day and the gym

Six says a week I walk/run 4 miles in the morning and do one aerobic mile after dinner every night, I carry hand weights while doing this.
I join a group of friends once a week and we hike several miles. They love walking up those steep hills! Really want to lift weights and hoping for Mothers Day maybe finally getting a gym membership.

Well; weather permitting, I go to the gym 2 times a week. We've been under quite a bit of snow, so I do my working out at home. I intend to get back more frequently once the weather here breaks. Blood glucose is now 84 so it's coming down from 179,2 months ago.

I cycle on the road 6 or 7 days a week. I mix up the rides even though most of them are on the same route. I will go fast or steady, do intervals (re. HIIT) and sometimes toward the end of a ride do a 5K time trial.

I often wonder what is the motivation for us cyclists to be out on the road in varying weather. I ride with a group once a week and they are all fanatics about riding.

My advice to whoever is to do what works for you and if you like it so much the better.

Good question/ I don't do any type of exercises except walking 1 and half hour or two hours a day for 6 days. I wish if I can do something else but with diabetes makes me kind of lazy. Happy Friday to you and all of you stay warm and always think positive

My in house exercise is walking so that's a good thing. I use the NuStep when I go to the gym, and the treadmill and other balancing exercises. I fell two weeks ago and bruised my right side of my rib and shoulder, tripping over a cord; but thank God nothing broken.

glad wasnt any broke bones and you ok i try to keep diabetes a1c down trying to get under 8 enjoy your day

What do you mean that your diabetes makes you kind of lazy? Walking 1 1/2 hours a day is a great start.

I walk on my treadmill 30 minutes after each meal or hubby and I go for a 2 mile walk at least 6 times a week. I use a rower three a week for 10 -15 minutes. Let free weight 3 times a week. In Summer I like to swim Going to Fla next month so will be swimming in the ocean and doing a lot of walking.

I try to do cardiovascular 3x's a week. And lift dumbells 3 days as well. Seems to work for me so far.

Swimminggrandma 2017-03-17 11:50:47 -0500 Report

I do a workout 3 times a week that takes about an hour, I spend about 20 minutes with 8 lb free weights, then leg lifts in a chair, then about 20 minutes on leg lifts, planks, crunches and other things on the floor, then up again to do streatching for about 20 minutes. I have done this for over 20 years, way before I got BG problems, I also love to take long walks but only in good weather, winter is rough for me, when I walk I will walk 4-6 miles, depends on the trail I pick. I also have a lg inground diving pool so I swim almost every day in the summer, and do exercises in the water too. I have always been active.

I walk 4 miles in one hour each morning as a rule…after I have my breakfast But, if I have to miss a day (rarely) I don't really stress about it. My husband bought me a Fitbit for Christmas 2015 and it really was the motivator I needed to get me out and complete at least 10,000 steps per day.

mlk602 2017-03-17 11:24:44 -0500 Report

Started with a gym. I really want to do 5-6 days per week, but somehow lacking the motivation. Changing my medications so I am hoping to get that burst of enthusiasm to become fully engaged. Don't know if it's age, the diabetes, or simply lack of interest. This is coming from a person who has always been physically fit with excellent muscle tone. Since I retired the drive is now in neutral and at times in second gear, and the cogs are grinding.
I wish I had an excercis/fitness partner, but I'll have to work on that. I want my body back.

I was really tired a few weeks ago so I went to get my thyroid level checked. It was fine so I started sleeping at least 7 hours a night and taking a liquid B vitamin and feel great again :-)

Swimminggrandma 2017-03-17 11:54:11 -0500 Report

That sure helps, I exercise in my home but have a friend that joins me 3 days a week, she has been sick with the flu this week so I have really missed her being here ! Still worked out but it was hard to motivate myself, she helps keep me on track as much as I help her ! The weather is beautiful today too so I will go for a nice long walk with my little dogs here in a bit !

debcox 2017-03-17 15:41:34 -0500 Report

I miss my exercise partner. She decided that she did not have time to exercise so I go alone. Better than not going at all.
