Dying to Exercise!
Friday, April 24, 2009
I am into my second week now...and I have walked a grand total of one day. And I want to work out sooo bad! I've always been athletic so the workouts appeal to me. The fact of setting goals and working my way back to health is very motivating for me.
My problem is that I can't seem to find the fit for me in my schedule! My sister was excited at first and told me that I could come out there everyday and we could walk and do exercise videos, etc. But then when I'd call before I left work, she'd have something else planned in her life. Then the same thing with a friend who so eagerly said that we were "going to do this together." We walked one day and then talked about doing it daily. But then....nada.
I need to exercise every day for this to work. Every day. I need something consistent and planned. So maybe I need to do this alone? In theory, having a workout buddy is great, but in reality, it just isn't working for me and is holding me back.
So I have decided to join the local community center...that has an indoor walking track, swimming pool and full workout facility....and just head over there from work every day. That way my workout is not dependent on anybody else's schedule but my own. When I get more into shape, the center also has aerobic workout classes that are included in the membership.
I'm going to go Monday and sign up, etc. I just know I'll stay more motivated and lose more weight if I workout too. Not to mention that I'll feel great too and my blood pressure will go down!
I have the weekend coming up. But the good thing is that my two nieces....Rilley, 3 and Kloe, 15-months....are staying with me this weekend. I'm planning on taking them to the park and doing active stuff with them. If I'm not perfect on the meal plan, at least I'll be active.
Thanks everyone! Have a great weekend and remember YOU'RE WORTH IT, YOU DESERVE A BEAUTIFUL LIFE.
