Exercise
« on: January 09, 2017, 12:47:29 PM »

So I started Pilates this morning. I've decided to get fit again, tone up and drop a few lbs. And I am dieing, lol. My legs feel like jello. Tomorrow I  going to be so sore, and will want to give up. Lol. This is the hardest part, but I hope I have the will to keep pushing through.
I took before pictures and measurements to encourage myself.

Anyone else starting fresh with the new year?

I'd love to try Yoga.  Bought a small book a few years ago, tried it for a couple weeks, but on my own I just couldn't stick with it.   I'm just too far out to try a class. Perhaps I'll try again.   
Although, I do believe trudging through snow banks qualifies as exercise, now if I could just curb my snacking.

I tried Pilates once. My SIL said "Come and try it its fun" So I thought why not.

Well I have to say that there were 80yo men and ladies in the class that were more flexible than I am.

Id love to get back into running once my coccyx has healed.

I do plan on eating ALOT healthier this year. Plenty of fresh fruit and veg :)

Chanda I would love yoga too.
And I agree trudging through snow would definitely work!
Ryan, I like jogging too.
I started eating better, and plan on loading up on advil before bed lol.
I have always been so fit but the last few years I've really slacked. I am happy to be working out, but very sore!

Well, I've never really been fit for an extended period of my life, so I fall on the other end of the spectrum. Sometimes, I'm embarrassed to post, because I do so little then hurt more than I think I should.

Ingrid has said several times that she notices I don't eat much. She can't understand why I stay so heavy. The short answer was "sweets." What I didn't tell her is not only is it sweets, it's sneakin' eatin'. I hide when I eat sweets. When I say hide, I mean H-I-D-E, to the point of burying wrappers under other pieces of trash so no one knows.   :'( :'( :'(

If y'all promise not to judge me (really, this is so difficult to confess, I'm in tears here) I'll keep up with you. What I've been doing since right after Christmas is eating more healthy. I try to keep leftovers available so that I can't use the excuse of "tired" to not cook at home.

It DOES help that Ingrid is always hungry. It helps EVEN MORE that she's not picky! Because of my lupus and extreme out-of-shapeness, I've committed to walking 3 days a week. If I walk out to the main road and back each time, I've completed my task. My biggest priority right now is consistency. Once I'm exercising regularly I can do more.

So yeah, I guess I'm in!

Well your not on your own there Julie :)

I, too am a shocker for hiding the chocolate wrappers under anything possible. I really hope No one opens the fire door before I light it for the first time in winter , Its filled to the brim with lollie wrappers.

 No judgement here , thats why this a great place to come :)

Im not really able to exercise at the moment because of injury , But I am able to make a start by eating a lot healthier.

So whos keen on a two week "Healthy eating Challenge" The only rules are

 1) you must be Honest with what you eat
 2) you MUST post each day or when you have time as to what you have eaten

We could start next week if anyones keen, it could be a good idea for new recipes aswell :)

I'm ready!  A few years back, between 5/18/13 and 9/16/14, I lost 150+ pounds.  Now, I find myself 100 pounds heavier again, and just started my diet once again.  So, I'm all for joining any group here that will be supportive, as I can't believe I let myself go again!  DUH! 

I sure miss how good I felt 2 years ago, and really want that again!  So, count me in!

Good work!

I'm down only 3.8 pounds since starting.  But I'm happy with each ounce lost!

I'm in too. What day are we starting, so I can clean cabinets and fridge? I also need to ask co-workers not to offer leftovers to me "for the animals."
