Exercising to prevent boredom
Sunday, October 16, 2011
When I get bored, I have been exercising. This has helped me to lose weight and even helped the swelling go down in my legs. The more I exercise the more I want to exercise. I started out walking a short distance. Then I added exercises using 2 cans of soup. Now I can use 3 pound weights. I know this isn't much, but it is a great deal considering I used to just sit in my chair all day. I wasn't mobile because of a surgery that required some time to heal. It eventually healed and I can now do moderate exercise successfully.
To help prevent boredom, I listen to music and change my exercise routine ocassionally. I get bored easily so I may change my routine frequently.
I have, also, been watching my diet. I try not to eat more that 1000 to 1200 calories a day. I do not work so I don't require as many calories.
