Joined a Gym

Monday, July 22, 2013

It's been a while since I bogged. Still new at this and not sure how much to share or when to share it.
I have been going to physical therapy most of the year for back pain. I running out of visits that my insurance will pay for and I need something to keep me going. SOOOO, I joined a gym at the same place I've been going to therapy. The therapist says she will keep track of my progress in the gym even after therapy ends because she knows my history. If I need help I can still ask her questions. I've been going to the gym nearly every day since I joined last week. It's keeping me tired but I'm not quitting. I have therapy on Tuesdays and do my gym routine on Mon, Wed and Fri. When therapy ends I'm thinking of 5 days a week in the gym.

Haven't really addressed diet yet. Trying to get off the soda pop and eat healthy but not pushing this. One thing at a time. Once I get the exercise into some type of routine that sticks then I will work on the food area.

I have never stuck with any program as long as I have stuck with Spark People. There is so much here you can always find something new to try.

You are right about concentrating on one thing at a time. Fitness is a good first step. I started will only one gym visit per week and longer 3 times a day walks with my dog. I increased my gym visits over the course of 6 weeks.
I am now at 3 times per week for my gym visits, which is working well for me. Good luck on your weight loss and fitness journey. emoticon emoticon

    give up sugar.....I did 4 years a go! It maybe a big adjustment but it will help you get healthier. Drink green tea or Apple cider vinegar mix....it's a lot cheaper nd healthier!

  I gave up all soda pop. After a few weeks I felt less tired than when I was drinking them. I drink water instead. It does save money too.
