I think that my fear is a fear of discomfort and the ridiculous idea that I will permanently damage knees or my feet when exercising. I thought about this tonight while changing to workout. It was a chore (not really, I am drama king) when bending down to pick up the shorts and socks and putting on the sneakers; but once it was done, I thought 'yeah, it hurt, but that pain is long gone, lets workout!' . And I did. I worked out, set my youtube account to a great playlist of motivation music and videos and now am writing this. It's amazing what a little whimpy workout will do for the soul and esteem. Thank you self!

Love, Me

    That's the attitude! Stick to low impact exercise for now , take care of your joints...but keep moving! Add a few more steps little to your daily routine . Park the car across the parking lot at the mall, go in the opposite entrance..anything you can think of that makes you move just a little bit more.
    You are off to a great start...oh and don't think you have to change to workout...you can do a simple walk video in your regular clothes...change after if you feel icky..but exercise when the mood hits you no matter what you are wearing!
    Try this and adjust the intensity to your own level. It's a nice beginning that you can do at home in 15 minutes.

    The line about it being amazing what a little workout can do for your soul and self esteem is completely true. Each time we workout when we just don't feel like it makes us feel a little better about ourselves. When we do things that are good for us it makes it a little easier to like ourselves. Keep up the good attitude and the sky's the limit my friend!
