Tuesday Treasures

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

I had another great Power90 cardio workout this morning, but I thought I wasn't as out of breath as I normally am until I got to the ab workout at the end. I think it's time to kick it up a notch. I'm doing almost all of the moves as intensely as I can (still no high impact on my left hip and knee, so the jumping jacks are modified).

Once again, I'm learning that the best benefit to fitness activities is that fitness in general becomes easier and more fun! If there's anyone out there in Sparkland who is afraid to take that 1st step toward becoming more active, I say "The only thing stopping you is YOU!" Even if you just crank up some tunes and march in place for 10 minutes, you've done something to increase your level of activity. Then tomorrow do 11 minutes, the day after that 12 minutes, and so on. In just 3 weeks you would be up to 30 minutes of activity every day. Wouldn't that be awesome?


Have a great Tuesday, everyone!

    Best to start as slow and short as you need to, and gradually increase as your body allows.

    SP has fantastic resources on fitness for all levels of capability.

    You've definitely found the path for you.

    You are so right. I have to agree with you. I'm a perfect example, I knew I was in trouble when I was washing dishes one day and couldn't even stand without my body hurting. I was like what? I was in such deny about my weight and now look at me months later I'm working out on the treadmill for an hour. I'm doing inclines and dancing. I'm moving. The only thing I do have to say with Steve behind me is you have to start in order to see progress even if it's little baby steps. One day at a time and you will see results. Please take our advise. start moving now. it's never too late to start.
