Gonna weigh in tomorrow morning!!!!!

Sunday, July 29, 2012

And, I'm not really looking forward to it....so much to lose and so little effort put into it. Yes, I'm being very, VERY good at what I'm eating and what I'm being careful about it.... HOWEVER, when it comes to exercising....forget it!! I just can't make myself enthused. I keep blaming it on the Florida heat. And, that it truly a part of it. At 78, I don't want to be crazy enough to go out in the sun...but, I know there are places I can go to.

I'm considering Tai Chi...think maybe I'll get up my nerve and call the local Senior Center and see what their class offers and when I can get over there to look it over. I'll do that tomorrow morning. I hope that's the push I need.

Any suggestions?? emoticon

    I try to get out about a half hour before sunrise. It's still pretty cool then, there's plenty of light, and I can walk the dogs for an hour and spend almost all of it in shade. You do have to get up a little earlier in the summer.

    Hello, I'll be moving to Florida soon and the thought of all that heat bothers me. My parents (87 and 90) manage to do some exercise in Florida. They go out really early morning. Anyway, I hope you work that out. Tai Chi sounds like a good idea.

    I would suggest a video at home. The heat can really be a buzzkill for most people, so that's what I do when it's over 100 outside.

    If you are eating well, at least you are doing something right. I too find it hard to make myself work out. I am trying to focus on my food.

    Try working out in a gym or joining a exercise class for seniors like the one they do in the water. Or else buy a viddeo and work out to that once in a while inside. emoticon
