Brr- its chilly but I am not going to let it stop me!

Thursday, October 11, 2012

Okay, I am getting old. As a teenager I walked and skied in 0 degree weather and thought it was a nice day. Now I have trouble going out when its 40 and feels like 30! I do have fibro and arthritis and it does make a difference. Yesterday I was able to join a fitness club for 10 bucks. It is only 3 blocks from my house. I can walk, bike, or drive there easily and with little cost. My budget is tight. I have decided to forgo fast food or little treats here and there to help save some money to pay my fitness dues every month. I have a 70% chance of getting type 2 diabetes because of relatives who have it or did have it. The percentage actually could be much higher because I did that when I only knew about my brother's diabetes, not my cousins, great uncles, and great grandmother's diabetes. My life is very stressful right now and I tend to eat when stressed. My alternative is to go exercise! emoticon

  I feel the same! I have arthritis and myopathy. I use to love the cold but can't hardley tolerate when it's below 50. I have made myself to take short walks the last couple of days and bundled up. Keep the good work up. emoticon emoticon

    Exercise is good for you when you are stressed. I think it is great that you are giving up fast food to be able to afford your gym membership. That's a step in the right direction. Two steps actually! Keep up the great work and keep sparkin'!
