Congratulations on the 11 pound weight loss!!!
I totally get having difficulty with exercise.
I'm not the most successful person here at SP but I have learned a lot and this has helped me greatly:
-- Think of adding MOVEMENT, not merely doing exercise. This could mean marching in place during comercials when you watch TV or using stretch-bands to add resistance to simple range-of-motion activities.
-- Walk whenever you can. For me that even means setting a timer on my computer to remind me to get up and move when I'm at my desk. (...a body at rest, tends to stay at rest!)
-- Fidgit! Really, it burns calories! Tap your foot, bounce your leg, clap your hands, anything that repeats motion for brief periods of time.
-- Do it in small doses! 3 ten-minute walks can be as helpful as a 30-minute walk.
-- I fully endorse using a pool (Remember, what you look like in a bathing suit is irrelevant!! You're in that water for your health!) whether you take a class or simply tread water for 10 minutes at a time (yep, treading water burns calories too!) you'll feel so much better when you're done!
Hope you continue to enjoy this website & community.
We're pulling for your continued success!!
Simple kindness to one's self and all that lives is the most powerful transformational force of all.
