Back Again and Trying Again - Never Give Up

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

I didn't give up while I was gone, but I did just coast along. Made all the usual excuses, too busy, etc.

On the positive side, my daughter and I have joined Curves. I have been totally unsuccesful in getting her to do any exercise with me at home, she doesn't even like to go for a walk. (She has physical and mental challenges) But she LOVES ZUMBA - so finally some exercise that she really loves and wants to do! Wow - what a break through. I am thrilled to see her exercising and smiling at the same time!

I like doing the circuit, but find it a little monotonous. So if she is doing Zumba class at the same time I do the circuit, I try to get into the music as a distraction. But the machines definitely work some muscles that haven't been worked for a long time. And it is easy to start out with, moving along in difficulty as you progress. So it is a positive start for us, and we are signed up for a year so we will definitely be committed to that time period - for cost reasons if nothing else

My weight is up 4 lbs but I know that will change, so not focusing on the weight, more on the nutrition and exercise because I know those are areas where we need to make life-long changes.

    welcome back! Sparking is definately "for life" so we are all here for you when things are tough. If you have only gained 4lbs since your last blog you can be very proud!
    It's good you are able to go to the gym with your daughter as long as it doesn't mean the coffee shop with cake to celebrate!
    best wishes, Sandra
