1st workout in February

Friday, February 24, 2012

Yesterday was the first time I worked out in February. I rode the bike for 25 minutes and went 9.45 miles. I think I over did it!! I hadn't worked out for 23 days. First I had a bad cold, then something else came up...then it was the intestinal bug...need I go on??

If I don't work out early in the day or afternoon ...it just doesn't happen. If I wait and try to go after 5 pm, I am too tired or hungry to go. I am really hurting...especially my knees. And they we're getting so much better!! I really do need to get in the pool!! That has been a life saver for me. The bike is my land workout when I miss water aerobics or I add it to my pool workout...I mean on the same day. I don't ride the bike in the pool!! Wouldn't that be a sight!!

Any hoo, I have finally made it to the gym. That is the start for me to keep going. The hot tub sure felt great!! Then had a good conversation in the locker room. Saw a friend there and it had been awhile!!

Tracking food is on and off. I make an effort in the morning, but don't always finish up that night. I used to track everything I put in my mouth!! I tend to tend to get busy and tracking is too much work...or just doesn't happen at the end of the day. And I don't plan everything ahead of time. I know some people do...but I am not like that! I used to track and when I was out if calories and fat, I would quit eating. Not so anymore!! I just eat!!

Well, enough ranting about my poor exercise and eating!! It is a new day and everyday is a new opportunity to improve!!

Thanks for reading!! I feel better to have all that off my mind!!

Have a great Friday!!

    My knees have osteo arthritis in them and I have a partial knee replacement on my left knee. That is why I hurt when I don't work out for awhile; Especially since I haven't done water aerobics. I know shoes make a difference, but I have a problem with my knees that I already know about.

    The food tracking thing doesn't happen because I am too tired at night after a long day.

    Have you look to see if you are wearing proper shoes. I used to have knee problems too until I got fitted into some good shoes that align my legs. I wear them when i am going to be walking alot and to the gym. I suggest you go to a good footwear shop and find out about it.
    Also I know its hard to keep track of it but if you set aside a few minutes at the end of the day maybe before bed to track your food?

    Also its good to hear you have gone to the gym even after so long but don't over do it. If you can't make the gym everyday then don't stress about it... Try going once a week and maybe go on a walk with a friend 2 three times a day. Its so good to be able to catch up with a friend and also get some exercise.
