Support me as I stay active for 27 days to support those living with Parkinson's!

I'm taking part in the 27ForParkinson's Challenge to help raise funds for people living with Parkinson's - a progressive neurological condition that affects people from all walks of life.

With over 57,000 people in Victoria and 219,000 Nationally living with Parkinson's, your donation will make a difference to so many people.

For 27 days I will be staying active whether it be walking, running or just moving my body on behalf of the Parkinson's Community.

Will you help me make a difference? Every dollar raised has a lasting impact, so please make a donation to support my challenge.

Journal & Craft

Friday 7th Oct
Day 7  - wet morning. Spent indoors, writing in my journal followed by a couple of hour doing some craft work. Stretching exercises were of course included. Those stretching and strength exercises are always part of my morning’s exercises. 

Practice & practise

Friday 7th Oct
Day was involved in practising PD Warrior exercises in the morning and exercises for Tango from a Zoom recoding in the afternoon. Hopefully, the moves improve with practice. Strength, balance and flexibility will hopefully improve too.

Indoor walk & PD Warrior Exercise

Thursday 6th Oct
Rained in the morning so my walk was done indoors at the local shopping centre. Visited a shop selling Christmas decorations. The afternoon PD Warrior session was challenging and I was pretty exhausted by the end of the session

Exercise!Exercise!Exercise!

Tango for Parkinson’s & PD Warrior Excercises

Monday 3rd Oct
Making funny faces at yourself in front of the mirror was my way of exercising my facial muscles.  I looked upon completing tasks around the apartment as a exercise opportunity instead of a chore. Thus, I enjoy putting the laundry on and hanging out the clothes. I don’t know which muscles were at work but  performing those tasks kept me active.my schedule today included Tango for Parkinson’s, an hour of dancing with warmup before that. 
In the afternoon, it was off to the PD Warrior Exercise class. Not only did I exercise my arm and leg muscles,I also had to exercise my vocal chords. Did manage a couple of short walks between activities. Mental exercises in the night after dinner.

Evening walk in the neighbourhood

Sunday 2nd Oct

Active Sunday

Sunday 2nd Oct
What I used to consider a typical Sunday morning is actually an active one. A half hour of gentle stretching exercises to start off the day. Cleaning and wiping down the shower room after shower gives me a good workout. Preparation of breakfast gave opportunities to exercise the arms and legs as I moved my body to dance to the music and words of worship songs I had playing in the background. 
Worship at church was another opportunity to be physically, mentally and socially active. I got to exercise my vocal chords in singing and engaging in fellowship with others after the service.
What seemed routine like the preparation of a simple lunch is now another enjoyable way of keeping active. A busy morning of activity.
I am lucky in the encouragement and support I receive from my husband. Although everything I do is completed at a much slower pace, he accepts that some of the things I do are challenges I choose  to take on myself.
Time for relaxation and some mental exercise - listening to an e-book borrowed from the local library and engaging in some word and numbers puzzles and games. Keeping a journal and reflecting on the happenings of the day and my thoughts are also mentally stimulating while keeping your hands and fingers flexible.
A walk around the neighbourhood and grocery shopping with my husband next.
It’s then time out for dinner with the family who came over.
It’s not difficult to stay active. If you are stricken with Parkinson’s, tell yourself’It’s not the end of your life”. Think positively of what you are capable of and don’t let the negatives intrude or take over your life. My faith helps me push out thoughts that say “I can’t.” It helps me take on the challenges of day to day living with the disease and spurs me to fight on. I consider every little thing I can do for and by myself as an achievement and am thankful. Build a supportive network around you.

Official Start of 27 for Parkinson’s

Saturday 1st Oct
Today is the official start date of “27 for Parkinson’s  My aim is to keep active physically and mentally by engaging in a variety of activities during this period and the future. My theme is Stay Active with Joy. My intention is to find joy in every activity I participate in daily, be it gentle or challenging  Stretching and balancing exercises is a good start to my days. Met up with a group of friends for coffee, though I don’t drink coffee and has chai latte instead. Socialising can be achieved not only by meeting up with friends over a cup of coffee or a meal but by attending group activities. 
I may be completing anything I do at a slower pace but it’s an achievement and I have a lot of time and I will not let the disease overwhelm me. I see each day as a beginning of something new. My faith gives me the strength and courage to fight on.
Walked 6km around the neighbourhood with my husband this lovely evening..

Active With Joy

Saturday 1st Oct
Step exercise for balance and strength.

Joyspotter’s Walk

Friday 30th Sep
A walk around the neighbour for exercise but also with the deliberate intention to  observe, listen to and feel  things of nature that can bring about a sense of joy. Great way to be active physically and mentally. Joy is seeing beauty in the different shapes  and vibrant colours of flowers at this time of the year, listening to the music made by the the various bird calls, touching the different textures of leaves & noticing their various shapes and shades of green, feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin and having the wind blow through your hair. What an adventure! For a while, I had lost interest in what was happening around me and that had robbed me of a sense of joy. But, my faith restored my joy

Exercise and Socialise

Thursday 29th Sep
Early morning exercise to work up an apparition for brunch with some friends from church. Usual afternoon nap and then indoor cycling to work off some of the calories consumed. Had beautiful music in the background while pedalling

Flex, Bend and Stretch

Wednesday 28th Sep
Every morning, I spend about 20 -30 minutes bending, flexing and stretching my body.  Putting on music helps to make it into a fun activity. Making it feel like you are dancing not only loosen my muscles in the morning but makes exercising a joy.

Perfect weather for a walk outdoors

Wednesday 21st Sep
Started my day with movement to music. The weather was too lovely to stay indoors the whole time. I went for a walk with my husband to soak in the lovely sunshine and admire the beauty of nature around us. The distance we covered was almost twice what I would normally do. An achievement! . In the afternoon, I attended a PD Warrior exercise  class. Have done enough  physical activity for the day.

My bit for Fight Parkinsons

Monday 19th Sep
Almost two years ago, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. As a sufferer of Parkinsons myself, I have decided to do my bit to help raise funds for the work of Fight Parkinsons. They do excellent work in supporting Parkinsons sufferers and raising awareness of the disease in the community.
I have undertaken to do a different activity each day in my fund raising effort. This morning, I spent an hour on stretching, balancing and strengthening exercises.
