I have been promising myself for many years that I would start a strength training program. Around November 2009 after many failed attempts, I tried to formulate a workable plan that I would start in January 2010 (but have yet to start).
Here is my plan: strength train a different body part every day, ten minutes a day, 5-6 days a week, by 9 am. (If I exercise at all, it is before noon.) I do not have a husband or kids to worry about and I am not working as I am on a long-term disability pension due to depression, so my only obstacle is the depression. I have several great strength training dvd's and weights at home.
I have already lost over 80 pounds through diet change and walking over the past year but my health care providers say it is crucial that I add strength and flexibility training for many reasons.
If anyone is into sparkmail or email, i could really use an accountability partner or encourager. Thanks in advance!
