Feeling lazy



Recommended Posts

I had my surgery 6/12/12 and have lost a little over 75 lbs. I have not noticed that my energy level has gone up at all. I haven't started an exercise program and am leaning towards doing zumba. I just have to wait for the next classes to start. I am at a stand still on my weight loss and I am getting depressed about it. I had noticed that since I am able to eat pretty much any type of food, I had been making poor food choices. With the holidays, it was very hard on me with all the sweets! I am conscious of this, so I went to the store yesterday and purchased more healthy foods for me.

What type of exercise program for beginners do you recommend?

I had surgery in July, and when I did get to exercising I just started on the Treadmill, I felt good after doing it. Made myself go to gym about 3 times a week just doing as much as I could. Then tried going longet and adjusting the incline to get a better workout. I would like to do a zumba class but don't want to look like a fool, so have not done it yet. But just start with walking!

Walking is a great start! It's free and u can do it anywhere!

Zumba is lots of fun too! Don't worry about what other people think. Believe me I laugh at myself quite a bit when zumbaing. That's part of the fun. Find the fun in exercise in whatever u choose to do. It increases the odds that u will do it again. :) good luck!

If you have a Wii or other type of game system, that's a great way to track progress and get in some activity that's fun, right in your own home. I'm hopping back on my Wii balance board tomorrow after I walk the mall with a friend. I even have the Zumba for Wii- haven't tried it yet....

Strap on those athletic shoes, wear comfortable clothing and step outside and go for a walk!! The best form of exercise, it is reenergizing, great for your heart, metabolism and circulation. If you get a pedometer it will track your steps and you can then see your progress. Good Luck!!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
