Exercising For Dummies
Tuesday, April 17, 2012
I wonder if they make a exercise book that would be along the dummy series. I always thought that whoever made those up were quite clever (even if the title does sound a little demeaning). But, you have to be honest and realistic with yourself to realize that book is exactly what you need. I have tried various exercise routines in my past with no success. I either loose interest and quit or I try too hard too quick and burn myself out. I'm determined now to just take it one day at a time and one step at a time. After all, it didn't just appear over night! It sure isn't going to be going away over night!
I am going to go to my local Curves today and doing their assessment or whatever it is you do for your first appointment. I'm excited because I've always wanted to try them out and see exactly what they are like. I was spinning the Spark Wheel one day and they gave me a free one week pass to try it out! What an excellent gift! The place where I work partners with Curves as well to offer a very deeply discounted monthly membership. Now I'll be able to experience it and see if the membership is worth it since I couldn't find anybody who actually has used or used the one in our town!
I'm officially on day three of no pop. Yesterday I consider myself successful, even though I drank a Diet, Caffeine Free Mt. Dew at lunch time. I literally had forgotten to bring anything to drink with me and had no money, no cup, nothing... to get a drink. My brother (who works with me) had an extra can and so I drank a part of it. Just enough to wet my mouth to get through my lunch. Mt. Dew was my favorite pop to drink and I have to admit, a diet non-caffeine version just SUCKS! It tasted almost just as awful as drinking water (which anyone who knows me, knows that I hate it!). So despite my half-of-a-can, I still feel successful despite it. =)
Now on to day three. This is where it is going to get tough. Having been without it a couple days I can do --- now I'm going to start craving it again! But through God all things are possible and I'm putting my Faith in Him. He can strengthen me to keep me going. For all my Spark Friends out there, GOOD LUCK in your journey! Remember that bumps will happen and strength occurs when you pick yourself back up and keep going! Just because you hit a bad day doesn't mean your whole plans are ruined! Keep going! Start again! You are so totally worth it!
