The last time my mother was hospitalized, I found the staircases and walked a few laps whenever I felt the need. I'm not a fitness nut, but sitting in an uncomfortable chair by a hospital bedside can make anyone crazy.

In the summer, I ride my bike to the hospital to do the stairs. That's 4 miles round trip plus eight floors. I'm anxious for the weather to be nice enough to ride again. I refuse to ride on wet, icy streets.

I walk or run once a day(usually in the morning, more walking than running, especially in the winter), then I walk my malamute for a half an hour before dinner. Before my separation I used to do a circuit routine on my Bowflex a few times a week, but now I can't fit it into my apartment. So, I bought some Kettle Bells, resistance bands, and a pilates ball. I have a small workout I do with those about 3 or 4 times a week. Just enough to make me uncomfortable, really stiff, and walk funny all week.
