Well, I've been thinking and talking about doing this so I accumulated all the information today. I have two wonderful workout facilities available for myself and one is an OK price but the other is "kinda" free....
1. Aquatic Therapy Facility for $55/mo. with classes, free swim time and one on one as needed. There is a $90 assessment, one time fee for evaluation as to what I will need. I have fibromyalgia so this should be awesome. As I told the woman there, I can't wait, but my main concern is getting into a "bathing suit". She said no problem because they allow shorts and shirts over the bathing suits!! Go figure.
2. Senior Center: $22/year!! All kinds of exercise classes, equipment, painting, trips, food, etc. etc. etc. Classes include Tai Chi, Qigong, Yoga, Line Dance, Tone 'N Stretch, TOPS, cards.... the list goes on and on
WHAT AM I WAITING FOR ????
I really wanted to share this information especially for the "older" (50+, which I don't consider older) because the Senior Centers and food programs are "crazy" good! Check them out!!
Life is Good..... I think SparkCoach lit a few extra Sparks under my behind... Something happened.
So I'm filling out the paperwork tomorrow and moving forward.
It's amazing what you find out there.... WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING!!!

Ok, here it goes! I do not have a problem with my eating, there I've said it! I really really have my food in check according to what amount of carbs, fats and proteins I ingest for the day. What I do have a problem with is I cannot make myself eat as many calories stated on the nutrition tracker. Call me crazy but 1700-2000 is way way way too much for me to take in. too many groceries for me!
Now here is where the problem kicks in.... I have a hard time working out! It's not that I don't have the time, cuz I do. It's not that I don't have the equipment, cuz I do. It's not that I think I don't have to, cuz I know I do. I HATE IT.... HATE IT.... HATE IT!!
I don't know who just said that???
I try to follow my schedule of workouts to do and I succeed for a few days and then the "fun" is over. So I try something new, (this is why I "have" the equipment).
Am I the only one with this problem. Am I missing something here.
I am losing weight, I am feeling better, I do have more energy....... I just feel like I'm letting myself down and hitting a brick wall over and over and over again.
I'm now chair dancing and just received a Malibu Pilates Chair to add to my new gadgets. I like them all; treadmill, resistance bands, free weights, dvds...etc. but just HATE to workout, I would rather sit on my butt and read a good book (I'm a bookaholic)
WHAT SHOULD I DO???????????????

Ok... first day of my 5K walking program! I can't believe I'm doing this. Talk about "going for the gold"... that's what it's like for me right now! Never in a million years did I think I would do something like this... Oh I love this place
I am losing weight.. ..ok not that much yet! LOL
I am very very motivated and all the information on this site is crazy
I have my good days and bad days, like most, but mostly good!! I suffer from fibromyalgia, but with medication and a positive mind it will get better. I can already feel it!
I'm kinda addicted to SPARKPEOPLE!!! I live alone, don't work... so why not is what I say.
And, right now, this time in my life, what I say goes!! IT'S "MY" LIFE to live as I wish!
Whoa, enough of this stuff. I was just going to tell you about my 5K walking program... hmmm, got a little off track, I think.
What I'm trying to say is I'm on my way to a new me and not ashamed to say I'm very proud of ME right now and wanted to share, I guess
Have a positive week, and I'll keep you posted on my 5K adventure

First of all, I've just started exercising, hmmmm .... tomorrow will be two weeks. Just a short tidbit :o), I started at 228.5 Lbs ( now everyone knows), I have fibromyalgia (pain 24/7) and I haven't exercised for probably 20 years ( )....
What "sparked" me to get going, was that my sister just died on Christmas Day, which was very upsetting. I have two brothers left and one of them (my baby brother) told me you need to get healthy.... (and this is what got me... "I just lost one sister and I do not want to lose the only one I have left"
Well, that did it! Someone actually cared.... . So he is my "little baby brother coach"... He has always been healthy and he wants to help me. I was touched...... so this is why I joined 'SPARKPEOPLE". To help show me the way and another place to gain knowledge and be accountable to yet another person (persons .
I'm so happy to be here...... oh, I remember now what I was going to say (fibro-fog ) I've been doing this exercising stuff for two weeks now and finally yesterday I did a 26 min mile and I was SO SURPRISED that I "COULD" actually accomplish that in just two weeks time.
I AM PROUD OF MYSELF......
My family is so happy, my two boys, their wives, my 3 grandchildren and my two brother!
I'm bound and determined to get this horrible weight off , be a healthy eater and be a continuous exerciser
I'm a happy camper right now and I can't believe I just wrote all this.....
Until next blog, I guess!
