Exercise, good food and good health
Sunday, January 20, 2013
I am blessed with very good health, even when I was overweight, I wasn't sick a lot and I am glad for that. Now that I am in an appropriate weight range, I catch an occasional cold, but they are few and far between. I did get this Influenza that is going around, but I haven't had Influenza for probably 10 years or better. So I figure I was due.
I also have been exercising more than I used to. I figure it is also good for me. I am getting to the point that while I still don't love it, I do see it as necessary and a good thing for me. Honestly, my goal is to be able to do a pull-up. I get extremely frustrated that my overweight husband can even do a pull-up. I also want to be able to do 10 push-ups on my toes. I watch my 10yo daughter do them effortlessly and that frustrates me. I have a job where I need a lot of upper body strength and I felt that I was strong upper body wise. But alas I cannot do a pull-up or push-ups on my toes. Blah, but that is what I am working towards. When I started the exercise portion of this journey, I couldn't do a crunch either. So I will make progress and before I know it, I will do a pull-up.
