Did Walk it out on the wii today

Friday, January 04, 2013

Finally DH went back to bed so I got up at 7:30am to do my Wii game, Walk It Out after a month of no exercise.

My shoulder/arm pain hurt so much I did nothing the past month. But I could tell this was not good for me, so if I have to get up in the night, I better get some exercise in.

I could only go for 15 minutes this time, out of shape, boo hoo. But tracking it made me happy and I know it will help my body soon enough. It is easy to do but just getting the TV to myself is the trick. DH does not understand the importance of exercise and finds it easier to drag me down to his level than to encourage me to be healthier.

I do get weary of the constant asking to eat ice cream and other things he wants to eat every day.

But I've been saying no to that, am drinking my water and tracking.

It is so frosty outside this morning, the cold air was shocking to my lungs, as I fed the cats by the door.

Sun is shining so beautifully on the frost.

My arm still aching, but some improved so I feel some in place walking better be on my list of things to do. I will stay at 15 minutes time until I am more in condition again. My BP has gone up so need to lower that so I am ready for exercise again, and missed the fun of it.

    Glad you're feeling like moving again. Sometimes husbands think they are helping...they think they are showing you they love you just the way you are. They don't realize WE don't love us just the way we are! I have my hubby (who does all the shopping) get me some things I can have when he has his treats: His cookies, my home-made light, sugar-free cookies. His ice cream bars, my sugar free fudgebar, his potato chips, my popcorn or pretzel sticks. He seems to enjoy that we are "snacking" together, but I'm staying right on track.

He has always brought me treats home...he'd get gas for the car and bring me home a Hostess cupcake or a Milky Way. Get the picture? But he is really basically frugal (sometimes flat out cheap). I told him when he brought these things home to me, I was going to put them down the disposal!!!! He stopped immediately. (I lied about that) emoticon

So hang in there, you're on your way back!

    I am so glad that you are getting some improvement in your shoulder! Keep up the good work of turning hubby's ice cream/snacks down, you are doing great!

    It's great that you're back to walking and drinking water and tracking. Just keep on pushing! Walking really does make a difference for my blood pressure. Sorry your arm is still aching. I have to consciously tell myself to relax my shoulder when I'm walking. Sometimes I tense it up when I'm walking or even sitting, particularly when I'm at the computer.

I'm just starting to get back to my exercise routine after surgery. I see the doctor on Wednesday and then I'll know when I can start doing my ST again. I'm really looking forward to it (oddly enough).

    I do my Wii Fit stuff about 30-60 minutes a day, but some if it isn't very aerobic. I do balance games too. Wii Fit says I need to work on my balance and that one of my sides is weaker than the other.

    I love walk it out on the wii! If you are online with your wii, let me know and we can pair up together to walk it out-- would be really fun to workout together.

Support from the sig is a difficult thing-- I get the same from my DH.... he waits until I get home from work and after working out, but then wants to go out to eat. It's on me, eating the pizza, etc., but when I had planned on eating some veg and rice at home, it' hard.

Although, I don't see it as unsupportive, personally-- he just wants to eat what he wants to eat, but would rather have us eat together, and I get that. We just haven't worked out how to make that work now that I'm trying to eat more healthy and he still wants chicken wings....

    Some is better than none and pretty soon you'll be faster than any characters on the games.

I've had to yell at the husband for junk food at times also.

    Happy New Year! I saw you had blogged about Walk It Out (on the Slowest Loser feed) and came here to see what you had written -- I just recently got the WIO game and started playing it, harder than I expected!! But a lot of fun, and trying to get more "stuff" opened up is very motivating, oddly enough. A nice change from just walking on the treadmill, anyway. When I can get the TV away from MY husband!! LOL

What really caught my interest, though, was your comments about living in the country. I've been living in the country -- basically in the north woods, in the Michigan Upper Peninsula, for over 40 years now, but was also raised in a city... but, I apparently am some kind of throwback to some ancestors that were farmers or something, because I have always loved it. I would think that making the transition at 50 or so would be more difficult, though... and not being able to drive sounds like it would become quite isolating. Do you have friends close by (walking distance)? The internet does at least help, but not the same as sitting at a neighbor's kitchen table having coffee (or a glass of wine, maybe?) and a good laugh (or cry).

Hope you don't mind -- I've added you as a friend, and just would like you to know I'm happy to offer whatever support I can...
