To the Wonderful World of SparkPeople
You have chosen to embark on a great journey to health and fitness and you'll make some great new Spark Friends along the way!
And it's easy if you follow these guidelines...
*Eat your five servings
*Track your food and fitness
*Get in an extra 10 minutes of dancing
*Get plenty of
*Believe that you are worth it
* Keep walking
You are not alone on this journey. We do not stand in front or behind but beside each other. You can do this. Don't get down if you make a mistake but get back up and do it again and again until you get it right. It will happen. Maybe not today or even tomorrow but you will do it if you believe in yourself. Find that strength deep inside and bring it out. Don't jump into a decision to quit and then regret it. Even a small victory is a step ahead.
Can you still walk with your walker? That's what I did after my surgery. Just kept building up strength. Swimming is also easier on the joints and walking in the pool helps and most pools have water aerobics classes that are fairly inexpensive. I also invested about 20 bucks in a stability ball and used it for stretching. There are several videos here on SP for chair exercises that might be of interest to you.
The best cure for stressing is to count your blessings...and a long walk won't hurt either!
Never give up what you want the MOST for what you want at the MOMENT!
