Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Starting slow

It have been far too long since I have exercised.

On Wednesday I went out to dinner with my BFF and she declared that she had gained 10 lbs in 3 weeks and needed a partner to go walking with.  I was “voluntold” that would be me.

Friday was supposed to be our first walk but it was raining cats and dogs, it was canceled.

I intended to do something at home, but that didn’t happen.

So this morning when I got up I turned on my DVD player and did a light 10 minutes before I could change my mind.  It’s not much but I was huffing and puffing. 😦  My fitness ability has dramatically dropped. 😦  I gotta get it back.

One of my cousin’s had the idea to do the Toronto Zoo 10K run.  But given our lack of training … this has been deferred.  Plus it is completely booked.  We will have to get on it earlier next year.

I am publicly making the commitment to move every day this month for at least 10 minutes.  I have to get back in the routine of moving.  Time to get Project Get Healthy back on track.

  1. Ditto. Was glad we didn’t put on weight while we were travelling – we did tons and tons of walking each day to counteract all the eating. But now that we’re back home, we’re still eating + not exercising = not a good outcome!

  2. […] I’m starting slow, I pulled this off the shelf and dusted it off.  I am feeling my muscles […]

  3. […] have been procrastinating working out for most of this month.  Even after I publicly declared that I was going to get back to it.  Yeah epic fail so […]
