Hi Folks. I'm an old timer who started strength training 20 years ago when her knees got too rickety for high impact training and running. I've followed a basic strength training routine 2 - 3 times a week for years, until life events got in the way, basically working full time and caring for Elderly Parents. One Parent passed in January 2019, the other has multiple health problems which lead to me becoming a full time carer 7 weeks ago. I'm now living with remaining Parent providing total care and desperate to reclaim my strength. I cannot access a gym as the Parent cannot be left unattended for more than 30 minutes. I have 50 kg of free weights here and bars, will get a chin up bar at the weekend. This will be a difficult journey, I was strong enough to do pull ups as recently as a year ago, but I feel weak as a kitten now. Nutrition has gone haywire due to meeting everyone else's needs but my own. The first step starts tomorrow. Thanks for reading, I aim to quietly log my progress here. The weights will impress no-one, this is for me and my future.
