Exercising when someone is around
Wednesday, May 01, 2013
While my husband was away on a long business trip I started the "Spark People" program. I was fling great! I tracked all my food and exercised almost every day. I even lost over 10 ponds in just 6 weeks.
Now my husband is back and I just can't get myself to exercise when he is around. At first I used the excuse that the videos I used, from Spark People's exercise videos, frustrated me. The videos would always stop multiple times during the exercise routine and I would have to restart the video many times. I told my husband and myself that I was too frustrated to exercise using those videos therefore I didn't exercise.
Almost two weeks ago I bought the Hip Hop Abs videos. Needless to say, I still haven't even looked at the videos. I realized that I couldn't bring myself to exercise in front of my husband. (The Family room that I exercise in is open to the formal living room where he usually is..) I'm not sure what I am afraid of. He would never say anything negative because he would be happy I am at least trying to get myself healthy. I think I would be okay exercising in front of him if he was exercising with me but that will never happen. He has already lost his weight and he is a lot more active than I am. (I usually sit to work two days a week and sit around at home as well because I have Fibro Myalgia)
Last night I read the materials that were sent with the videos. This morning I don't have to be anywhere till 9:30 when I get my hair colored. I am going to exercise this morning. I figure there is no excise for me not to exercise with the Hip Hop Abs videos at least three days a week this week. I'm hoping that once I know the exercise routines, and don't think I will imbarase myself, I will be able to exercise even if my husband is around.
My goal this week is to exercise at least three days a week with the videos and continue to walk on the other days.
I am proud to say that thanks to your support I just finished 20 minutes of a 30 minute cardio video. I had to modify it a little be cause I was having a hard time keeping up. Ny mouth and throat got so dry and I had a hard time breathing so during the last 10 minutes I slowly walked it out. Of course part of that walk was to go upstairs to get my water bottle. 😜
