FEELS LIKE THE FIRST TIME, song by Foreigner

Sunday, February 10, 2013

yup, i have started sparkpeople, again. have been staying consistent for about a week or two. it feels good, i feel like i did the first time i did sparks, when i lost 40 pounds. i was in the best shape of my life, and i am so eager to get back to it! at that time, i started school (after several years) and i injured myself (bad ACL tear). i gained all the weight back, and lost all of my self confidence.

i don't work out in a gym, but i have 30+ videos that i like to do, and i study karate. trying to get beyond the mental block of my knee being re-injured...

also, i just started the "sparkcoach" i am very hopeful that this will help also. so, as of now, i am excited and feel like i am gonna do this!

here is the youtube video of the song...

    Love that song! I understand your feeling nervous about reinjuring yourself. I had a calf strain last year. Sounds mild right? My entire calf was black and blue. It was awful and I was afraid to exercise again. I started SLOW at 2.0 on the treadmill, no incline for just 15 minutes. Now I can do an hour and I'm back to doing some of my exercise tapes after six weeks. Just listen to your body and increase your exercise gradually. If it hurts stop and find something to do that doesn't put stress on your knee. There are some good videos here on SP.
