Woo Hoo, go me!

Monday, April 23, 2012

This is embarrassing to admit especially after being on SparkPeople for almost 4 years but after an almost 10 month slump I am finally on a 9 day streak of a minimum of 10 minutes of exercise a day. I just couldn't get any ambition up at all for a long time but now I am back on track and it feels good. A minimum of 10 minutes a day on the treadmill along with at least 15 minutes of strength training, I usually end up with 45 minutes a day of some combination.
Now the strange part is the music I listen to, not your average fast paced, fist pumping, heart stopping cardio music or thump bump hip hop but Spa music or Yoga music. Yes I'll admit I have SiriusXM radio that I listen to on my iPod to exercise to but I really like the new Spa channel and the Yoga channel. I find it relaxing and really easy to walk to and easy to pump the weights to.
Another thing I'll admit to is 1-walking on my treadmill barefoot, I KNOW, I KNOW, it's probably dangerous but it feels better than sneekers - aka "workout shoes", another thing is when the Spa music or Yoga music is on, I hang on lightly to the hand rails and close my eyes and just meditate or think about my upcoming vacation BACK HOME IN 31 DAYS and before I know it, I've done a 1/4 mile lap usually in 10 minutes. Yes I knoa again, probably dangerous but that is what gets me going and done. And I know you all are probably snickering and rolling your eyes about how slow I am but when you go from almost 0 exercise to every day,. I have to work up to my speed. To each his/her own.

    Good for you starting again. I've been on 4 years and am starting to lose my motivation. I still take my one hour walk everyday though.

    I've been here for about five years and yesterday I finally figured out the Nutrition Tracker and can now log in what I actually eat instead of choosing foods that are close.

Don't feel bad for what you did in the past, but go forward!

So sad to hear Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows has died. Jonathan Frid was 87.
Then a musician died, Levon Helm. Such a sad week

    When I told my hubby about it, I said our generation has lost yet another icon. Mr Clark had been part of our lives since 1957.

    Yep. So true. I did that yesterday when crocheting a doll dress potholder from memory and forgot to count the shells and had to keep ripping out until I finally realized what I had done. Crochet is not forgiving, one wrong stitch will throw the whole pattern off.
