I finally made it on our elliptical yesterday. I was on 1/2 hr. while I watched Rachel Ray-Jorge was on.
My decision: I'm glad I have it, as there are times 1/2 hr is better than nothing...but... I'll be bored out of my mind by June (when the weather gets stable again, maybe!) if I do that everyday. So I'm going to a local Zumba class tonight-why not! I can go and try it out, and see if this class/instructor fits.
I tried to prepare for this winter: The, I need to workout/I get bored with my exercise videos/I miss my mountain river trail walks--type of mentality.
Exercise is my brain pill. I can say that because many of my family have depression, anxiety, etc., and I know how beneficial medication can be. For me: eating well, exercising, working, and a little sunshine/ fresh air help keep me physically and emotionally well.
Obviously, I am no athlete, but I don't have to be to enjoy movement. That's the key for me: I need to enjoy it so much, that I look forward to it each day. If I don't--- exercise just becomes something on my mental list-that I just don't get to.
So I'm off to eat well, work, and get a little exercise today...as you know I'm allergic to cold, so we'll see about the fresh air thing. I can only work on so many things at one time!!
Have a great day!
