physical limitations criteria needed in profile
Can we have options listed in the profile to limit the challenges to those that are within our ablilities, or else use more inclusive language that is suitable for ALL abilities. This is supposed to be a platform created by people recovering from injuries. Yes some may use if for wieghtloss, or other uses, but some may use if for very debilitating or permanent injuries, or birth circumstances, and may find things like walking up stairs, walking blocks instead of driving (when it it is a struggle to walk 5 steps), to be very discouraging. Inclusive language makes it less frustrating for those of us who cannot do something. I don't want to delete every challenge that is there, because of poor language, or feel defeted by it.
Right? Stand up every 30 minutes? As long as you aren't sitting down, standing still, or eating you're stealth exercising? I'M IN A WHEELCHAIR! I have no choice BUT to sit down! LOL! I deleted every preprogrammed powerpack first thing, for that very reason. That gets rid of them - but then you have to start making your own from scratch. And I have to admit, I was at a bit of a loss as to how to structure everything because of that. I'm still not sure I'm doing it right. But it's better than being told to take the stairs!
I couldn't agree more. I'm disabled and felt shamed when I saw "walk a block." How presumptuous to assume that such a pleasant activity is a given for all of us. As another commenter said, 5 steps, or 1, can be a great achievement. Same for "take the stairs" and for the stairs = good/elevator = bad language.
Lastly, the term "lazy exercise" as a descriptor just doesn't work. It's pejorative and naive language. People who can't do the type of exercise you designate aren't lazy.
Kind thanks for listening.
I suffer from severe chronic pain and walking can be an issue. I want to delete the walking power-ups and change them to stationary exercise or Yoga.
Totally agree: I need to lose weight but I've been in a cast for months. I can't walk around the block and I really want that power up to go away.
