Bring On The Pain

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

I've tried avoiding it, I've tried ignoring it, I've even tried negotiating with it; but I must address the issue head on. Exercise is one thing I dread doing. Over the past few weeks I've lost 21 lbs by just eating right; however those numbers have gradually decreased each week. I've given up meats (for the most part), sweets, junk food, and fast food. The only thing left for me to do is to sweat. Ughhhh I guess I'll get on the treadmill I've been using to hold my clothes for ironing. No pain no gain.

    Thanks for the encouragement. I started slow and finished strong on my treadmill mission today

    Your right, now that you got healthy eating down, exercise is the next bests thing!!! It's always super hard starting out, but then becomes sooo rewarding once you start seeing the benefits! Good luck ! emoticon emoticon

    Okay, I gotta admit I thought "exercise" was a four-letter-word when I started Spark People. Here is what works for me: 10-minute units of exercise. Spark Guy started me off with his book, The Spark and I am on the 10-minute Team. Every day since August 2011, I have managed 10-45 minutes of exercise in at least 10-minute units. There are a LOT of short videos on Spark People to use. I do not belong to a gym - it is sooo unlikely I would go regularly! But at home I have a nice exercise bike, free weights and, of course, THE FLOOR. I work out in front of the TV or to music. It works for me. NO EXCUSES!!! Who can't do ten minutes?
