Day 2 of being back on track

Sunday, September 20, 2009

Still trying to come to terms with the limits I have imposed on me. Who wrote the rule that September must be limiting for me? This time last year I was limited after surgery on my knee. This year it's Valley Fever. NOT FAIR!

This morning I am too tired to ride, but I'm hoping that if I take it easy today, I can ride this afternoon. I NEED the exercise. If not physically, mentally I need it. I need the endorphin rush. WHAT? ME? Who said that? Not me, uh uh. LOL

It's true. I've become addicted to exercise. This one-time lump whose "exercise" was composed of doing easy rides on my horse, and not really pushing the limits much. That has all changed, and I find I like the change.

So, I'm asked all the time how to get into doing cardio. Well, here is what I've learned:
1) Fiind something you like. There are jillions of choices out there besides the traditional ones.
2) Do it until you are addicted to the endorphins.
3) Make it an unbreakable appointment at least 2 times a week. It's important for YOU!
4) Make it fun
5) If you can, find a partner in crime
6) Use variety to keep it interesting and challenging.

So here's to becoming a new us. I'm back on track and trying daily to improve my already wonderful self. I sure hope I can ride this afternoon!!

    Beth, so glad you are back! We have wondered what happened to you as we have missed your postings. I started the September chat line after the first week and someone esle started the other posting that you take care of doing. So glad you have returned and hope all goes well for now. You have to choose what is right for you as we all have our own ideas of what works best for us. Thanks for the quilting note!
