I see you have great advice. I keep nuts, a protein and a fiber bar, some hard candy and some mini candy bars, a box of raisins, my swim suit, shorts, t-shirt, my shampoo and conditioner, shoes, socks, water shoes, and a brush in my gym bag. I don't eat all my snacks but depending on how my blood sugar is, I sometimes need a fast sugar fix, I usually need something when I finish - especially when I swim because I will often stay in the water for 2-4 hours at a time. It goes long past being EXERCISE and becomes fun and relaxing for me. Starting off with 30 minutes 3 times a week is not a bad PLAN if you are PRETTY sure that is going to fit into YOUR life and YOUR schedule. It is okay to start with "AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK" as your initial goal and then up it when you see you are able to - that way instead of being disappointed in yourself, you succeed and usually at the start will EXCEED expectations. Depending on where you stand health and fitness wise, you might start with a LOT less - 5 - 10 minutes, or even more. YOU know YOU better than anyone else.
With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.
