Dean, you really get it! Your article spoke to me...I was feeling anxious just reading it and felt like running into the kitchen to eat something! Instead your article fed a part of me I thought nobody else understood. I can do this, thank you!
Great column. It is easy to discount a little exercise as both hard and insignificant (because it doesn't bring double digit results immediately). But small doses bring strength and endurance built step by step over time.
You sure won't get more fit and trim by sitting on the couch.
Thanks for this article. I was just about to bail out on exercising today. I also thought of something.....I have not been counting the 2x daily walks with my dog. I walk him morning and night and have not been thinking of this as exercise! Usually I do a 45 min workout video or 11 min chair exercise in addition to the dog walking. So I am doing more than what I thought! I will include your 3 points in my daily journal log that I maintain on my fitness page. Luckily you can track all of this on Spark!!
Thank you for writing this article(s)! I feel impowered and I am sooo glad to have read an article that understands where I am coming from and feels like you are speaking right to me! I am going to start this week and also keep that journal. The way you wrote the article is so comforting and great. Thank you!
WOW! Reading the article was just what I need! I was going strong for about 4 weeks and then the last 2 weeks I haven't exercised at all - just seemed to make excuse after excuse. I just started back exercising these last two days and wonder to myself why I stopped in the first place. I ALWAYS feel better physically and mentally after I work out.'
Thanks you for the motivation to keep it moving!!!!
It was if you could see right into my struggle. I have been working out for about two months and I find that I am struggling with the before the workout thought patterns. I journal about my workout after the workout but never thought of journaling before and during. I have found though I have a love for exercise that I didn't have before. It is just taking the step to do the exercise. I didn't realize there were others that felt the way I did.
