Nervous -day 4

Sunday, March 03, 2013

I've been having OCD nightmares (the same nightmare over and over...) both in my sleep and when my guard is down when I'm sitting quietly on the couch. Awake. Daydreaming basically I guess. Have to shake it off and think more positively. Today for exercise I'm going to do core. Don't feel like getting on the treadmill today, but tomorrow I will. Never feel like exercising on the weekends, so I leave it for the weekdays. At least then I'm on a scheduale.
I'm nervous about starting exercising this week because I have failed so many times in the past. I'm not a fan of exercising. I hate to sweat, and be out of breath. I just need to approach this by taking baby steps. Just having a goal of doing 2 core exercises seems overwhelming to me right now. It only takes 5 - 10 min but I still have trouble doing it. Oh well,
today's a new day. Core needs to get done. It's not like I have anything else planned for my day. Wish me luck!

    I hate sweating, also. I know that if I do I am achieving my goal. Good luck achieving yours.

    I hope you accomplished your goal for the day! I was still sore in my arms from my first strength upper body workout in months this past Friday. So today I focused on my core and lower body. Like you I only planned on ten minutes, but that turned to 30. I was having a mild anxiety attack and the exercising caused me to focus on the positive. Hopefully I did not over do it. Like you I plan on doing cardio tomorrow so hope my legs will not hurt so I can walk.

    Good luck and I hope you feel up to your goal for Sunday and Monday ~ little steps at a time! TLG71567 has a good point to reward your self for reaching your goals. Maybe a long hot bubble bath to get rid of sweat!

    Sorry to hear about that disturbing reoccurring dream. I wish it was a good dream that you would not mind having! I hope this dream stops soon!

    Take good care of yourself,

    You can do it. You've set small achievable goals. Set small rewards for doing it. Daily if need be. Embrace the sweat and the out of breath since you know that means you're getting healthier. Keep it up. : )
