I'm hoping to find some good info from people who have the issues I've mentioned. I've been doing walks (about 5 days a week, just 2 miles a day. I am wanting to lose just about 14 lbs, but also build muscle. I have my own weight equipment here at home. I stopped the weights about 2 months ago because I have developed whats called trigger finger in my left hand, and also elbow pain in my right elbow. These things had already started a few years ago because of my job. Over-use, etc. I believe what I do has kept them at bay. No pills, just natural things and only on occasion, ibuprofen.
I'm 67 so of course it's partly age, but I have been eating very healthy for some time now, mostly vegetarian, but I make sure to get "what I think is enough" protein according to my exercise routine.
I want to start lifting again, and I do some body weight like pushups when I'm in that mode. I need to meet some gals that have really improved/lowered their pain levels. I want to stick with vegetarian for several reasons. One is that my allergies have gone to almost zero. I do a lot of alternative stuff like ACV, lemon juice and Ginger. I've started Turmeric recently as well and I put that in Almond Milk, Orgain Organic with 8 g protein.
Anyway, that's enough for now to see if anyone can relate, and maybe help me get into more things to help, and maybe which exercises/weights are best for people that have same sorts of ailments.
Thanks in advance for any help. Denise
