Day 19 Check-In: Exercising through Skype
Saturday, January 19, 2013
I did my first real exercising today.
I did Facebook video chat (like Skype) with a friend. I had posted in a group on Facebook that I was really overwhelmed by the prospect of starting to exercise. I wanted to do something more exciting than just walking, but I just didn't know where to begin. So my friend Justine, who lives in a different state than I do and does a lot of different types of exercises, messaged me and said that we could try video exercising. So I got up early this morning, and turned on the computer, and about 25 minutes later, I had done it! Justine was great. She likes to do intervals, and uses an interval timer on her phone to alternate exercises. It was a lot more fun than just walking, plus I have ideas for things that I can do on my own now. We did both cardio and some weight-based exercises. I'm hoping to keep up the pace tomorrow. I have some exercising videos that I drug out, so I'm going to do that for about 20 minutes. And Justine and I are going to try to do video exercising again once we get our schedules straightened out.
