Is Getting Fit Your Goal for 2012?

Last year I started a Fitness Friday series where I shared exercises that I have found to truly work.  It’s a new year and many have set a goal for 2012 to get in shape.  Let me help! 
I did a bit of blog housekeeping this weekend and organized all of my Fitness Friday posts into one location.  You can now click on my “Get Fit” page to find the exercises that I’ve posted. 

I hope to start writing  Fitness Friday posts again very soon.  Being injured for so long took the wind out of my exercise sail and being depressed about being hurt made it difficult for me to get motivated to post about exercise.  (I was lucky to be able to exercise even while injured, though not at the intensity or frequency that I prefer.  For that, I am very thankful.)  My new treatment has me wearing a Serola Belt for all activity except for bathing and sleeping.  This belt holds the SI joint in position which allows muscles that haven’t been working properly to work again.  In addition to wearing the belt, I’ll soon start Prolotherapy injections which stimulate healing.  The doctor I saw predicts that the combination of wearing the belt and doing the Prolotherapy should have me back to normal by summer.  I already can tell a difference in how my back feels after wearing the belt for only a few days.  I finally feel almost normal!  What I’ve found amazing is that now that I don’t hurt, I feel happy again!  For so long, I’ve been sad and depressed and I had forgotten what happy feels like and I like it.  I’ve got my fingers crossed that this treatment will work!

Let me know if you try any exercise.  If you have a suggestion for an exercise that works a particular body part, let me know and I’ll see what I can do to help you out.

Happy Exercising!


  1. So happy that you’ve found something to get you back on track, Paula! Love the idea of having your own Get Fit page. That’s a great idea. 🙂

  2. I’m so glad for you! I’ve been having trouble with my SI joint; saw an osteopath about it today. It’s causing all kinds of trouble, including terrible heel pain! Isn’t it amazing how “the head bone’s connected to the. . . neck bone. . . “? EVERYTHING’s connected!
