Scared Fit


Wednesday, October 03, 2012



Per a team blog challenge, I'm writing about the part of my journey that scares me the most -- fitness. The thought of it almost paralyses me. Last time I really got into working out, which was years ago, I was thrilled with the progress I was making and the sense of accomplishment. Then life got in the way and I gave up. Ever since, I find it very difficult to start and stay evercising.



From my weightloss class today, we happened to be talking fitness. Good timing for sure. One thing that was said caught my attention. It takes about 3 months of exercising before it is a habit. If I could work towards that goal, I just may be able to make this a long term commitment.

So I'm making a commitment to myself to use this as a short term goal. I'm not going to think about working out the rest of my life. All I'm going to concentrate on is getting through the first 3 months.



So here I go!

    3 months is great. Remember it's a step in the right direction. You can do this, just take one day at a time. I'm with you Captain!

    emoticon emoticon Find something you like and go for it! Go for small goals like 30 mins every other day. If 3 months is too long plan for one then keep adding. I still have to make myself go to the gym some days but I'm always glad when I do. emoticon emoticon

    I hope you find a form of exercise that you really enjoy. Then you'll want to do it. I like the idea of keeping your focus on just the next 3 months. You can sign up again when that period is over.

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon the important thing is to try and find an exercise you enjoy so it doesnīt seem like a chore.even just dancing to music can build up a sweat and help limber limbs while being fun.also when planing exercise plan it at a feasible sight so you are more likely to do it.doing it reguly at the same time will also help.if after work you are normally too tired set the alarm clock a bit earlier to get some in at the start of the day.if that is too much go for a walk in your dinner break.remember where there is a will thre is a way.even just having a good stretch in your bed before getting up can help.remember though when doing stregnuous exercise to warm up and cool down afterwards.alot of peolple give up on exercise because they donīt do this and have an injury as a result.know you can do this laura.have fun. emoticon
