Trying for slow and steady
Tuesday, January 17, 2012 3 comments
I had fallen into a rut of telling myself I was "too tired" to go to evening Zumba and aerobics classes. But then I forced myself to try it a couple of times and, guess what? That's right: I'm not too tired to do it most of the time. So, I went ... Read more
Making it work without a challenge?
Sunday, December 18, 2011 3 comments
After I finished the year-long challenge, I wanted to take a break and see how I do without the structure. The verdict? Pretty well! I now make a point to work exercise into every day, even without the challenge, and I'm proud of that. I've also... Read more

365 days of exercise! Woo hoo! There were plenty of days where I was reduced to "just 10 minutes," but many more where I did more than I ever would have before I met Spark People. And I've learned that I need the Spark to keep going! Thank you a... Read more

I'm almost to my goal of 365 days of exercise. I have learned a lot about myself this year. One thing I've learned is to keep going, no matter what. Baby steps really do work! When I started the challenge, not even my doctors could tell me if ... Read more
The closer I get...

...the harder it becomes? Not really, but the last few weeks HAVE been a struggle, even though I'm right on top of my goal. Day 361? Can't believe it! But I'm proud that I've made it to the gym three times already this week, and I'm trying to st... Read more

Day 316. I'm so glad I squeezed my exercise in this morning. I made a special effort and carved out an hour this morning for an aerobics class before work. It was great! And right now, I'm so tired that I would definitely be tempted to skip if I... Read more
It's finally a habit.

Okay, Day 310, and exercise is finally a habit. I know this because I slept poorly earlier this week, and my solution was to go to aerobics the next morning. In the past, I would have used a bad night's sleep as a reason to skip my workout. I'm ... Read more

I had a very busy week at work, but I made time for exercise, and the result was very positive. I made it to aerobics, pilates, and Zumba, and it helped me stay strong. I am going to remember that during the upcoming week too. I've finally reali... Read more

I'm posting in public today because I'm really tired and I know that by 6:30 p.m. I'm going to want to weasel out of going to pilates. I like the class, but not as much as I like cardio, and, let's face it, 6:30 is practically bed time. ... Read more
Just keep doing it!!!

Day 291 and I'm just here to say I'm grateful for the day and for the opportunity to go to a Zumba class. It wasn't that long ago that I was stretched out on the couch all day every day, too tired to read or even watch t.v., too tired to cook me... Read more
Step aerobics after all these years!

Day 287 and I went to a step aerobics class, the first I've been attended since...oh, the 1980s! It was a lot of fun, although it took some getting used to the step again, and I'd forgotten routines like "Around the World." But how nice it was t... Read more
