Doing something is better than doing nothing!
Wednesday, August 31, 2016
I started consciously working out on Monday, inspired by my friend Sharon. She is focused and enjoys a lot of the same things I do, except she likes (and used to teach) exercise. Oh, I'm not opposed to it. I enjoy seeing OTHER PEOPLE working out!
A long time ago, in a far away land, I taught water aerobics. It was after an injury that I started water aerobics and it was not at all common or popular. But - I lost 35 pounds doing it. I started back after the latest injury, but wasn't motivated enough to stay.
So here I am, highest weight I've ever been partly because I have convinced myself that I don't like controlled exercise. You know something, I think I have just been lazy. I work from home or in the greenhouse or gardens. I sweat, because it's hot, but it's not raising my heart rate. I spend way too much time at my computer and in meetings, working on making my businesses successful.
The only person stopping me from succeeding is myself! I'm not making commitments to anyone else, because y'all can't see me. The one I am accountable to is myself. Sharon and I are reminding/sharing workouts with each other via text. But I am the one who has to look in the mirror and be accountable for what I see and how I feel. I am going to work on making my weight loss a success as well!
