I'm 10 pounds away from my 1st goal of 70 pounds lost but I have lost my motivation. Since my car accident and actually prior to I have not been able to get it moving. I'm battling with Vertigo and that is real tough because I tend to lose my balance when standing up and walking. I also want to start so strength training but have no idea where to start, up until now I have concentrated on cardio, I have lost pounds and inches but now I also want to tighten it up especially in the mid section if you know what I mean. Any and all advise would be greatly appreciated and if anyone has battled with vertigo I would love to hear and about and know what you did to conquer it. Thanks Sparkers in advance
Today it was to cold to walk in the neighborhood, it was a cold 29 this morning so my husband and I still wanted to get in our cardio workout today so we headed to the mall for the first time. I didn't think I would be able to get the same workout but to my surprise I did, It was a bit cool in the mall and I didn't particularly care for the music, but once I got my walk on the music didn't matter and I was actually sweating by time we were done. We completed a 1 hour and 7 minute walk, which ended up being 4.6 miles for me which was great. Then we went and got some shopping done, not in the mall but at 4 different grocery stores which gave me another 60 minutes of walking, so all and all it ended up being a great day for a walk even with the cold and rain. Have a great day Sparkpeople.
It's been 3 days since I was diagnosed with Pneumonia but i'm feeling better, I'm a little discourged because of the weight gain but I know that I can't exercise right now and when I recover I can get back to living again, right now I know it's more important for me to recovery and I will. Not to mention my blood sugars are all over the place because of the meds. Doctor says 2 weeks before I can get back to normal so for now patience and rest are my plans.
