I know how frustrating it can be after not working out for a while and struggling with an exercise that used to be easy. I've been an on and off exerciser for years, but just stay strong and keep motivated! It does give joy to see how strong your body is getting like if you could never do a normal push up and then manage one normal push up at a time.
Thanks for the encouragement. Makes me glad to be back!

Welcome home! The hardest part ( choosing to get back on that exercise horse) is done. Now, slow yet steady energy needs to be expended daily to build strength, stamina, endurance and good health! Did I fail to mention what a boost exercise is for your mental attitude? Before you think I am just being bossy, let me tell you how I have had to fight my way back to strength thru exercise after 3 surgeries in one years time. (Still not to where I was, but I am working on it!). Spark People is such an amazing site, full of support, education and even ex vids and friends who go thru the ups and downs with you! This battle isn't easy, but it's necessary for optimum health!
Holy cow. I haven't worked out in nearly a year, and I didn't realize how fit I was becoming. It is discouraging to do a workout that I was doing not easily, but without feeling like I needed to stop, but now I struggle. I know, it is good that I am back to doing it, but I am also frustrated for myself for not keeping up with my goals. Hopefully this is a lesson to me to not stop ever again!
