Over 70. . . . . living in Victoria. . . . .self isolate they advise.


Well I am now going to have to stay home totally.  No walks or bike rides.  Luckily the garden is fairly big so I can do a walk round that a few times a day.

This morning I decided I had better break out the WII console and get back into doing my WII routine.

The machine told me at the end of my 30 minute routine that it was 194 days since I had last done my routine. It also told me that I had gained 1 kilogram since then.  I thought it would have been much more.

I have to say that my balance is not as good as it was when I last did my routine.  I will need to work on that.  Obviously the exercises help with improving balance.  I do a mix of yoga and muscle building exercises.

Have you been advised to self isolate yet?

  1. yes we’re in lock down, no going out except to walk the dog. (We live in a very rural area.) No shopping, no going out, no visiting except we do stand outside with a neighbour at least 2 metres away for a chat. Hubby dearest is at very high risk and must not get this bug.

    Take care. I’m only going out to walk the dog.

      You take care too. For such an outdoors person you must really be feeling this confinement.

        Thanks. I’m lucky I have a big backyard and lots of bushy remote walking tracks nearby.

  3. For the last three weeks cocooning has been advised however last Friday our Taoiseach (Premier) announced total cocooning for those 70 and over, those vulnerable. the nation has been told to “Stay at Home” except naturally for those who need to work. I feel sorry for those who have no outside space. That must be very difficult. take care.

      Yes I feel for those in a small apartment with no outside space. I am fortunate as we have a large garden .

    We are confined to quarters, allowed out for essential shopping, one bit of exercise, lots of hand washing and no fraternising! Already last week’s final visit to the library seems like another life.

      I am usually more than happy at home but just knowing that I shouldn’t go out is making it a different scenario altogether.

  5. We are under a “stay-at-home” order which means you can only leave the house for essential stuff like getting food and medicine, or for outside activities while practicing social isolation. My doctors told me two weeks ago to stay home because I’m high risk, so I’m really settled into a routine now. Take care.

      Take care too. Certainly I am getting plenty of time for knitting and other home activities.
