Didja Exercise?

Support Group Time: What is your favorite exercise?


Did you?

Have a great workout yet today? Huh? Didja?


I'm not able to exercycle right now but I'm trying to walk every day. And for the most part, I am, except for yesterday. I'm also exercising, like doing stomach crunches and leg exercises daily. Usually at night when I have more time.

I appreciate all of the comments. This is a time of real struggle for me, and you could see from last night's posting. Surprised I didn't come away with more calories or carbs, and really surprised that I did what I said: finished the posting, got some tea, got ready for bed, and lay there watching TV until the feeling passed. Which was this morning.

And the depression! I didn't realize I'd changed my behavior in other ways (because of the wheat) but when I snapped at my Kid and later, lay there thinking I wish my life was different, that's when I realized it. I crave. I get pissed off. I get bitchy. I get self-absorbed.

I hate how I was last night.

My life with wheat is over. Oh sure, I'm gonna slip. Cake here and there. A bought-burger here and there. Kit Kat. But it changes me in mental, emotional, physical and cravings-ways that I need to acknowledge it here and now so that when it happens again, I will understand.

Ah, the introspection we must do when changing our lives. I hadn't really done any. Until now.

I have to switch it up or else I get bored, but I definitely feel better after I've gotten my sweat on.

Hi Vee. I'm new to this fit-blogging life, and love the idea of a support group so here I am commenting. I did exercise this morning. I trying to start a running program. Yikes smike it is hard, but it was a bit easier than yesterday. Baby steps:)

Lizzie: too much introspection at once can be hazardous to your health!

Lanie: I'm getting there.

Jack:I get bored soooo easily. I'll start "switching it up" too.

Just A: Thank you for coming. I needed to hear that. And love the yike smike phrase. Might have to borrow. And baby steps is right.
