Well, I started back with my exercise fitness class and the water aerobics. I have added on more class to the week and it is for joint exercising (for arthritis). I started it today. We sit in a chair today during the whole class today. The movements that we did were easy, but I can see where it will help my joints.
I don't know if it is a good thing or not,but I haven't started out the New Year with ALL that "GUN-HOLE" that I did in the past. I usually start out fast and fizz out within a week or two, it seems so different to me. I took a hard look at it and I could see that I am doing what I had planed to do. I started planning my "New Year Start" the 1st of Dec. because my husband's work is seasonal and during the winter we get really low on money. He starts to be really tight on any spending. So I started paying ahead of time for my classes and got them paid up to April that's when his work picks back up. Sure enough he started saying we can't afford to pay for the classes this winter. It was just before Christmas and I told him don't worry about it . The classes are already paid. Thank you for my Christmas present this year, (the exercising classes). (LOL)
So, I guess that is why I am not feeling all excited about the New Year. I faith in myself that I am going to do it this time. I know that I will not want to wast the money and I don't want my husband to be upset with me if I don't do the exercising classes.
I guess that I kind of put presser on myself and didn't know it, by paying ahead. I thought that I was JUST making sure that I would have the money during the winter. (LOL)
I really love the fellowship that I get within the classes. It really improved my out look. I noticed that in one class everybody is average weight or slim. In that class it makes me realize just how much bigger I am than them. In another class just about everyone is close to my size . I feel real comfortable in it, but I am glad that the other class makes me want to work toward get smaller and be close to the size of the others. In both class the people are my age or older. I really believe if I had only enroll in the class that I feel comfortable in that I would not of work as hard as I have to lose more weight. I believe that I would of accepted that because you are older that you will have extra weight and will have to accept it. That would of been one of my lies that I would of told myself. So, I would not have to deal with losing any weight. So, I see by exposing myself to different levels and types of exercising classes that it has been a good thing for me mental.
Well, I have to do some Sparking and get to bed so I can get up tomorrow at
6:00 AM to start my Half day of exercising, (two classes). It has really been rough some days with my joint pain but I go ahead and start the classes by the end I am feeling so much better and ready to do other things for the rest of the day.
Hope everyone is having a good start to this New Year. Hugs, Judy
