My daily exercise mostly consist of walking. I know that I need to get a lot more in, especially since I seemed to gain some weight back. Let me give you a little bit of history.
I am one of those people who really doesn't like to exercise and am shy about getting in front of other people. I'm petite, small boned and my biggest problem area is my middle. I am 58 and have an easy time gaining, but getting off-that is all together a different situation. Being 35 lb+ over weight, makes me feel blah about myself.
When I was younger, I joined a woman gym, that I did enjoy, only to have it go out of business not long after that. Yes, I lost my money. I joined another gym. I saw some women, who were dealing with some weight, so I joined. Only a few weeks later, they were gone and it was all these young fit men and women. College age mostly, and being small, I couldn't reach some of the equipment, I felt intimidated. Usually I couldn't find anyone to help. And again, I was quite shy. Since then, I have quit going to gyms.
Now, a few years ago, I went to the YMCA and did water aerobics. I liked it. I had fun. But it is to expensive, and I am on a strict budget.
GOOD NEWS- I new that I must get out and start exercising and start enjoying life. A few days ago I just happened to look at our recreational centers programs, and the one near me had a class 55+ W.W.F (warm water fitness) and the good news, it is a drop in class. I pay as I go, they meet twice a week and for half an hour. So I called up to see if the class was on for next week, since it is the week of July 4th. Yes they were. So I am planning on going, and my goal to to blog about how it goes. (ok, I'm making a commitment).
I have taken some other steps to get out of my shell, sort of speak. I even signed up to co-lead a team here on SparkPeople.
I know I can do this. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired and always taking the easy way out, by giving up. Like I said in another blog ( I should go back and read my owe stuff), I'm not going to give up. I have a vision board with what I want to look like, need to go a look at it more. Yes, I may go backwards, but I'm not stuck going that way.
I can do it. And I'm not giving up. Boy, your mind can really be a pain in the_____ sometimes.
Positive thinking is my new goal (plus I joined a positive blogging team) and already, I'm am feeling a whole lot better.
To doubt and unbelief, get out of my life, you're no longer welcome in my life.
