I got a book called "Flat Belly Yoga!", by Kimberly Fowler...it will get me started. I have a couple other books that are more intense. The Flat Belly is a 32 day program, teaching the poses and sequences as the month goes on. Not focused on reps, but holding poses correctly and safely.

I started an Online Journal and am keeping track of the time I am moving. Actually any moving I do at this point will be good for me.

I love to ride my bike! Cat and I used to ride together with our dogs, and I sure do miss her. I do stretching exercises before I go.

Right now I'm herding three terrorist kittens. I thought it would be fun to have them in the computer room with me for a while.

Something is very, very wrong with me for thinking that!!

Please, do you have any sun salutation sequences? You could start by doing a few reps of one of those for 5 or 10 minutes and then go for a walk.
This one?

Yes, I have several sun salutation sequences among the three books. Not quite there yet for many of the poses.

Just took a ham bone (left over from Easter) out of the freezer to make some bean soup tomorrow.

So glad to hear this! I hope your Mom is feeling better. She will be able to get so much stronger at home. And you will feel so much better not having to go back and forth. Prayers and hugs for you both!

PF, I know it sounds silly, but one of the exercises I found to be really helpful in getting a flatter, tighter stomach is...

Any time you are laying down, watching television, or whenever, lift your legs up for about five to ten inches and hold them there. Count to five and let them down. Repeat as often as you feel comfortable. You will feel the thigh and stomach muscles pull. Little by little over time increase the count until you reach ten. In about two weeks you will notice a flatter stomach. Do it about twice. In an hour or longer repeat as often as you feel like. Or not.

You know that notice you get on the TV that interrupts your program at the worst time? We just got a tornado warning. I can hear the continuous thunder and it is getting closer and closer. This is unusual. This is the first time in years that I have felt nervous with the weather report. They keep beeping on my TV to get my attention. They have it!

I miss riding my bike. I think it is the happiest memory I have of my childhood. Physical Therapy nixed the idea. Balance problem.

The Yoga I am doing is working all the muscles in my core, not just the abdominals. It will be making me stronger all over, allow me to reach down, reach up, sit up and help with balance issues. So, just one exercise is not going to do it for me.

An exercise similar to what you describe is part of my sequence, thanks for thinking about me and my flabby belly.
