    I should have had a longer bike ride yesterday - the weather was good, sunny and bright. Today is set to be wet and windy all day - I shall probably just ride down to the shops and I expect to get wet!

    Just found this group. I've been working from home since March 17, 2020 and have gained 20#. I really need motivation and accountability. I find it hard to force myself away from my desk to workout.
    Going to push myself to get workouts complete before logging into work each day.

    Would love any advise and motivation.
    Thanks

    @abarnett11 Hi there! What kind of workouts are you interested in? I have huge playlists of workouts from YouTube since quarantine, I can link some for you if you tell me what you'd like. For example, I did Leslie Sansone walking at home videos which are like low impact aerobics, low impact HIIT, weights, resistant bands, dancing, strength training, and yoga. Also there's an app called FitOn that has good workouts too. I'm currently doing seated workouts or laying down ones because of nerve damage. Honestly one of my favorite things to do is put on music and dance! If you make yourself do that for one song you can usually finish your workout because it'll put you in a good mood.

    @abarnett11 , thanks so much for joining!

    I do workout videos at home and sometimes commit to programmes, in order to have a measurable goal (I did a 30 Day HasFit programme and am now working towards 12 weeks of Heather Robertson). I also did a 12 week German Body Recomposition and a Muscle & Strength 4Day Programme with dumbells (sort of lifting, but not at the gym). Sometimes I just like to get back to my favourite workout Videos, though (popsugars has a great variety, for all tastes).

    I thought reporting to others may help with accountability. So if you're not too shy, let us know how it goes and what you like doing!

    Btw, depending on the severity of the lockdown, we still try to spend some time outside: walking 🚶‍♀️, running 🏃‍♀️ or biking 🚴‍♀️.

    I have to figure out what I can do to keep some leg strength that doesn't make my pain worse. It's really hit and miss right now, everything hurts to do so it's trial and error.

    @Katmary71 , so sorry to hear what you are going through. I had spinal injury and surgery about 30 years ago. Nerve damage is the worst pain.
