Sit and Pedal

If you're a senior, obese, have arthritis or fibromyalgia, or have balance issues or other movement challenges, then I want to start with a simple sit and pedal exercise for you all. This is even great for those of us who sit at a desk all day. Anyone who needs a simple exercise routine can do this. Again, don't forget to ask your doctor before you begin any exercise routine regardless of how simple it seems to be.

In this video below, Coach Kim starts with a 5-minute routine that also includes a few arm exercises. I selected Coach Kim's video because, besides her gentle encouragement, the type of pedal exerciser she uses can also be placed on top of a desk or table to exercise your arms as well. These don't have to cost a fortune. You may even be able to find one cheaper than the one at the link I've provided. 


The point is we all need to move. If you're unable to buy one of these for now, maybe you can just mimic the motions of sitting in place and pedaling with your legs or arms. My opinion is that if we have one healthy routine, we will want to implement more healthy routines into our lifestyle. And don't do this because you want to lose weight. That takes the fun out of the exercise. It's only fun if there are no strings attached. Without the strings and the stress that comes with that, you just do the exercise, and if weight comes off, then it's an added bonus. 

When you feel like you're ready to move on to a bigger challenge - with your doctor's blessings - simply move on to Coach Kim's 10-minute workout that follows her 5-minute workout video that I've provided here. 

The best part of this is that, as Coach Kim mentions in the 10-minute exercise routine, we need 30 minutes of exercise every day. The sit and pedal exercise allows us to get that 30 minutes of exercise in short spurts throughout the day. And even if you can't do 30 minutes of exercise every day, then 5 or 10 minutes is better than nothing. 

Have a blessed and healthy day,

Love Never Fails

 After Saul (Paul) was converted from Judaism, in which he was a trained priest, to Christianity on the road to Damascus, he spent a few years learning how to be a better person for God's new work in Christ. After God prepared him, Paul started preaching the Good News to people in different cities. One of those cities was Corinth in Greece. When Paul needed to correct - or praise - some teachings of the churches that were established in these cities but couldn't get back to them right away, he would write them letters. One of these letters (often called epistles) is called I Corinthians in the Holy Bible.  The message I want to bring to your attention today is what Paul was telling this church about love. He told them in verse 16:14 to, " Do everything with love. " (NLT) The NKJV read as, " Let all that you do be done with love. " What a difference we could make in the world if we could all follow this beautiful advice.  In the same Book of I Corinthians 13:
