So when I said in my last post that I wasn’t wanting to stop totally, backslide so much that I’d have to start over, that’s exactly what I did.
I’m back on the soda.
I’m back to no exercse.
I’m back to hating how I feel.
I’m back to sleeping poorly.
I’m back to feeling really low and a bit depressed.
It’s only a matter of time before the 10 pounds I managed to lose come creeping back.
I need to find different ways to keep working out. Here’s my problem: I don’t have the money for a gym membership. I have an injury that probably could benefit from the guidance of a personal trainer, but that’s also monetarily out of the question. Running isn’t in the cards for me as my foot cannot sustain the exercise for more than a few weeks at a time. I need to find other ways to get it done so that I can lose some weight and get back to feeling better physically and mentally.
I’m really kinda depressed about the whole thing right now. But here’s my idea. My husband has a bike. Perhaps I’ll borrow it a few times a week. When I can’t borrow it, I’ll take walks. I’ll put the girl in the stroller and have the boy ride his bike next to me. Maybe I’ll get out the old roller blades (if they still work, that is).
I have some hand weights. I have a balance ball, (shamefully never been blown up) and I can do push ups, sit ups, and leg lifts. I can go to the pool when it opens at the end of the month for a few bucks at a time.
But I’m open for suggestion for low-impact training of any kind. I’m sorta floundering in the wind here. Maybe I’ll take a walk tonight to that trail near my house I’ve been meaning to check out. Or get back on the bike. Yeah. No time like today to get going again.
