Again, EXERCISE the word of the year when you think about it. What with all our isolation this last winter, many of us found solace in watching movies and snacking binges. Especially potato chips. However now is the time where as the old saying goes –its time for the rubber to hit the road. I want to share with those of you who remained slim and trim a big Hurrah! Job well done!
We see all these ads on television about losing weight and they did it so can we. They are right but we have to be incentivized to get moving and motivated. Also we know that if we lose the weight that is just the beginning. We have to keep it off and that is a tough job. A never ending job for some of us.
So with summer right around the corner, and everyone wanting new bathing suits some action has to be taken. This action can not be I will work hard for two weeks and see what happens, it has to be a lifestyle change. It means purging the cupboards and the refrigerator.
I have spent a lot of time in waiting rooms lately and it is truly amazing the number of overweight people. Not just a little bit. We all have some work to do. So what can we honestly begin to do a little at a time to begin to make a difference?
EXERCISE is the key word and I don’t mean running a mile, or going to a gym and using all the machine for an hour. Groaning as you get off the last machine and try to just walk.
BEGIN EXERCISING SLOWLY.
Walk leisurely from your home to the corner of your block or around the block .
Increase your pace slowly. Time yourself. At first you will think , I must have been out here at least 20 min. Of course you have only been walking for ten minutes and you are dragging.
Patience, patience, being consistent and lengthening your time walking slowing in the beginning will start to pay off.
Click on Selections from barb resource library. You will need a password HELEN. There is a simple Exercise Scheduler there for you. It is really basic. Just had a thought instead of checking that you walked on a certain day, just add how long you walked, even if it is only 5 min. Add it.
What we EAT is for another day. We know we need to begin to look at what we are eating. For now just stop snacking and start to walk .
