Trying to Exercise … a little

Saturday, July 13, 2013

I really need to work on my fitness and endurance. Really.

Being out of shape doesn't seem to interfere much with my lazy sedentary daily routines. So it makes it way too easy to get a little less fit every single day.

Ok, aside from the vague knowledge that I *should* be healthy and fit… I am hoping to go to Disney World again some day, and that's a LOT of walking! I'm going with a Zumba loving friend who walks briskly. And she has longer legs than I do.

Time to step it up!

Did a few minutes on the elliptical last night.

While watching "Fat, sick and Nearly Dead." (It's streaming on Netflix, and it's a really well-done - not dry - documentary about a couple of guys who changed their lives by changing their eating habits. WATCH THIS!)

So my goal is to do a few minutes, 6 days a week. And increase the time each time. If I do it twice a day, that's a bonus! Just need to work on my endurance for now.

Mickey, here I come!!!

    i exercise at home so no need to drive to the gym. i have a laptop connected to my tv so i can play dvds or online videos. some are 10 minutes long so i can do short workouts or longer based on how much time/energy i have.

    I exercise an hour each day, 7 days a week. I have a sit down bike for my hip problem, and I read a book for 40 min, then I do my weights for 60.
Nothing special just a few to the side, lifts up and down, bends, etc. I do not let a day go by without doing them. I do them when I get up because if I start to do anything in the house then I start getting tired and hate to do them. So getting them out of the way is best for me.

    At some point I joined this team:
And it helped me to start doing 10 minutes of exercise (walking, bike riding) per day. I now do 40-60 minutes per day, most days...

  I saw "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" ! The changes they made were impressive. Their diet clearly isn't for everyone, but they raised a LOT of interesting points!

    Fat sick and nearly dead, is the reason I am on the journey I am. I may not be extreme juicing like he did, but he had a lot of good insight.

Baby steps~ it took me two weeks of 7 minutes a day of walking, to start increasing my now 45 minutes a day. Like anything, you take it slow and work up to it. Now I am starving for more exercise.

    good luck with everything, i know you will be able to walk through disney! if you need some encouragement, all of us are here for you, and know this--when i went to disney with my family i was 11 years old and my brother was 2. he refused to sit in his stroller the ENTIRE time, so if a 2 year old can walk the park all day you CERTAINLY can!!!!
