So what did I do? (positive!)
Thursday, April 02, 2009
I spent a little time reading the positive, motivational blogs of my friends here at SparkPeople. Then I looked up a few things I could do at home, and did them. I kept my heart rate up for thirty minutes and sweated plenty! I still don't feel like I did an "official" workout (I miss my weights, if nothing else) but I definitely kept my heartrate up. Some of the exercises I tried to do with weights, but I don't actually own any weights, and honestly after a year of lifting weights at the gym, 28 ounce cans just aren't heavy enough. And the 24 pack of soda was terribly awkward. We don't have any milk jugs with handles, and I have terribly small hands so I can only hold so much. My daughter suggested that I try to lift her, but I don't think I'm quite that strong! Plus she's wiggly.
Anyway, I feel a little better now. I do wish I knew how I could stop myself from being so concerned with the opinions of other people, especially people who are such a tiny part of my life.
