Recliner recluse

Monday, August 06, 2012

That's what I have become.
I come home from work and grab a water , turn on General Hospital , and sit.

My motivation has been lost somewhere in the fight with my daily problems with work and finances.

I know that I have the power to change my weight, to be slimmer and healthier.
So why don't I do it? Why do I constantly sabotage my progress?

When will I finally realize that food, although it tastes good at the moment isn't making things better, isn't taking away the problems, but just adding to them.
Sitting in front of the television hour after hour and thinking about working out isn't accomplishing anything.

The excuses are many.
I'm tired, I am stiff and sore, My knees hurt, all could be helped by getting up and using those muscles, and letting loose some endorphins to energize me.

So once again I am making the commitment to make it #1 on my to do list when I get home.
Don't sit in that chair!!!!
Get the water, grab the weights and resistance bands and use them for one hour.

Of course always while watching General Hospital!

    I can so relate what you have been going through...I did the same thing last winter. I really think it takes a while to recover from caring for an ailing parent.

    I started walking and it has helped me so much.
    I work 10 - 12 hours shifts on my feet all day, but walking after work has made a difference.
    My knees , ankles and feet hurt but I go as soon as I get home.
    Walking with someone and having a juicy conversation helps.

    Exercising and General Hospital. A win-win situation if ever there was one.

    Make it a great week

    My knees hurt most of the time but since I've lost weight, they are feeling much better. I also like to do simple exercises during commercials, every little bit helps. emoticon
