    Yikes! Sorry things aren't going so well.
    I haven't been getting out there much either. It's been so flipping hot and humid. I could go walk in the mall I suppose but I don't even have the energy to drive there, let alone walk around.
    We will both be back on our feet again soon, I'm sure of it.

    Fascinating!
    I did something similar last night but had to break it off because weird stuff began happening. I'm not sure what to make of it.

    Congratulations! Good to "see" you posting again.
    I've gained a lot of weight recently too. It's crazy. I used to be really skinny. I want to be skinny again so I have to get busy!

    I walked to the lake last night and hope to do the same here in a few minutes. Not a long walk, but it's relaxing.

    I have an ass-sitting job. My exercise during the day is minimal; mainly up and down the long haul at the office. At least it's air conditioned.
    I don't have any real motivation to get myself back into better shape. Sure, I might "feel better" after awhile, but that seems like an elusive goal at this point.

    Thanks. I do get small walks in throughout the day. Mainly down the LONG haul in the office building to attend meetings. I can't walk outside today because it's 93F and quite humid. I might be able to walk after work, when it doesn't matter how much I sweat.

    I hear you.  Are you in an office all day, or do you have to be on your feet?  I don't know which is worse, TBH.  I've had factory work where I literally walked for 10 hours (picking nonconveyables in a warehouse, ie items that did not go down the conveyor belt well)  and now this job where its possible for me to sit on my *ss for 8 hours. Not sure which I would prefer now - at least with picking noncons in the warehouse I got my miles in, LOL.  I gained so much weight when I had to quit that one (moved back here and got married).
    It has helped me a lot to remind myself that 'anything is better than nothing'. I get into a mindset that if I cannot do 'xyz', I might as well not go.  I'm dreading the first time I break my streak - I know it will happen.

    It's great that walking has become more of a routine for you. I'm trying to get into that mindset again. I used to crave walking, even just four years ago. Now I find it an almost insurmountable chore because my physical condition has deteriorated so badly.

    Usually I freeze all the time, but ever since I got heat exhaustion several years ago, I can't handle anything over 90F.  I went walking yesterday and it was 'only' 84F, and I nearly collapsed.  Ugh.  Agree that sweat sucks.
    My daughter told me that eating garlic helps repel insects.  One of her cousin-in-laws gives their kids garlic pills. Not sure about the science of it, though.

    Not as much as I should of course. I walked home from work on Friday. Only a mile, but it's better than nothing I suppose.

    @AloneGuy Thank you. Sorry I didn't see your replies until now.
    There's really not much one can say. We've all been through it to one extent or another. I find myself doing fine one minute and then augering in for a mighty crash the next.

    I'm in a similar situation. I've had a bunch of "false starts" in establishing a walking regimen over the past four weeks. One of my weird hurdles is that I sweat even at freezing temps. When I walk in hot summer weather, I get drenched. I know I shouldn't care what other people think, but I know anyone who sees me out walking wonder what the hell is wrong with me. Everyone else is out there jogging without a single drop of sweat on their brow while I have a waterfall cascading down my face even at a a moderate pace.

    I hear you.  My face gets so red, I"m sure people are thinking I'm about to drop.  Have you been able to get out and walk any lately?

    Ha! I don't know who Karl is. I'm still waiting for season 14 of Supernatural to come out on DVD. I don't have cable/wi fi at home so I watch everything on DVD months after everyone else has seen the shows.
    I'm also waiting for the second season of Orville and Star Trek Discovery. I'm re-watching Star Trek TNG now as a placeholder until the new stuff comes out.

    It's great that you can "work through" the pain.
    For me, walking is a real chore. I get so short of breath and then begin to sweat. I just went for a short walk, maybe 0.5 mile, and now feel like falling into a coma.
