Finally getting Fit in my Fifties???

Monday, October 08, 2012

I'm hoping it is never too late. I have so much to do yet in this life and I want to be able to do it. I finally got a new DVD player (old one died a year ago) and thought I would jump right back to where I left off. Wrong! I couldn't do even 1 push up or more than 1 jumping jack. Oh boy, this isn't good. I guess strength training is moving up in priority.

Trying to forgive myself and move on ahead after losing 30 pounds and becoming a whole lot healthier and then backsliding all the way to the bottom again. I'm so ashamed, but I'm going to treat myself just like I would a best friend who did that and not shame but offer encouragment to do it again. Sometimes you have to be your own cheerleader I guess. I don't have a lot of support around so I am leaning on Sparkpeople for that support. I hope to make a lot of new friends and learn life skills along the way.

    We do indeed often have to be our own cheerleaders, but here at SP, there are tons of others who are willing to help!

    Best of success to you on your journey back to great health--and come back often to let us know how you're doing.

    As the saying goes, "there is no time like the present"! Of course you can do it!

    To me, the word "journey" has taken on a wonderful meaning because this journey we do here is so full of self-discovery. Maybe you'll start by think of pounds, but discover many more goals along the way, so:
    ENJOY the journey.

    Never too late. Since you already went this path before I'm sure you know all about small steps and one day at a time. Day 1 today!
