Hi everyone, I got to thinking about how challenging it can be to enjoy exercise - and yet it is vital to be as active as possible for good health as well as to make dropping pounds a little easier.
So please jump in with your tips!
Here's mine - go ahead and try new things, but be prepared to really go as slow as you need to. All sports take some conditioning. If you try to do too much at once, it IS NOT FUN!
Example: If you haven't been walking much at all. Really walk 10 minutes per day the first week - the entire week, then 15 the next etc. This lets your muscles get used to it. Once you are very comfortable with the level you have, THAT's the time to add more challenge. If you go to far too fast, scale it back immediately.
And once you are comfortable with a sport or activity, then it is time to evaluate 'how much do I like this?' Some resonate, some don't. The ones that do, keep and add more challenge. The ones that don't, skip or do sparingly.
