Two different things completely.
I updated my goal list yesterday when they updated the site. The one thing I never really got into was strength training. Sure I did some yoga a while back, but when I couldn't afford it anymore (and I barely could to begin with) I stopped doing it completely. It's one of those things I do better in a group setting.
I decided that one of my goals is to get toned. Like one of those fitness models we see everywhere (yes I know, photoshop is everywhere, I know unrealistic from reality). I want abs and a great butt, but I can't do it without a real workout.
I've been lazy lately and hardly even do my walks. Part of it is my leg, but that should want me to work at it more so I can live independently for life (another goal!). I have been half-heartedly doing my leg exercises this week (it was a long weekend for the kids, really an excuse?) and need to get back on the horse. I tried to do a yoga position after I did my leg exercises, I need to make my leg stronger, it's still out of alignment, I know I can make it better by working it more.
One thing I have discovered is that if I'm really that lazy I hurt more. It's amazing that a little exercise, even mild walking, can make one feel better. I know that I can get this done for myself, I'm still trying to convince my husband to do some exercises with me, his back hurts occasionally and I know that working out will make him feel better too.
I put on my chart that I'd do strength training exercises 3 times a week, so I'd better get at it. Monday, Wednesday and Fridays will work best for me, so off I go!
