no I didn't exercise today my daughter was sick so I had to take her to the doctor's and it was cool and rainy out so I didn't feel like walking and by the time I got home I was tired so I took a nap instead.
I just can't get motivated to exercise, morning or night. I just never had to before, so I am not used to it at all. Also I just find that between my job and my 8 and 2 year old boys, I am so drained and there is just not enogh time in my day to fit in anything extra. I always say that I'm going to exercise in the morning, but when morning comes I just lay there and try to absorb every minute of rest until I have to kick into "SuperWoman" mode. Did I mention I'm a single mother. Today I managed 15 minutes of stretching but that was it.
I got up at 7 and took my daughter to school and then went to work didn't have a lunch break (for a change) finished at 430, and it is 630 here now and I have only just had my tea (dinner). I am in the UK, and it is very dark and cold, so I am not going out for a walk or anything now. My daughter has taken over the TV in the front room so no exersise dvd either (excuses Excuses I know). On the plus side tomorrow is saturday and if it stays dry I am taking my daughter to the park so we can play some soccer.
I am so impressed by all the exercisers on this thread. But it is baby steps for me, I am a long time non exerciser and seriously overweight. Today I was finally able to use my ski machine without holding onto the bar for dear life. I was actually able to use the grips that simulate the ski poles. I am so excited.
Oh yeah, 35 mins divided between elliptical and stair stepper....weaning myself off of the elliptical and onto the stepper, then to the stair master (revolving stairs...ugh...been there, done it - it's hard).
