I have been thinking whether or not to blog about working out! I struggle in this area. For one...truthfully I have a very hard time being motivated. Second, I have very bad knees, shoulders, neck, and back...I am broken! My knees flare up very easily. My back gets sore quickly. I have had surgery on my right should and my left is following!
I don't want to sound like a wimp, but maybe I am. I used to be able to workout any way I wanted. Through the years my body has slowly told me that "working out hurts". However, I do notice that if I do not workout, my body gets worse! I am confused.
SO...a friend let me borrow her elliptical machine (super nice, thank you) and I thought I would try getting on that at least four day a week. To tell the truth I think I have had this machine for a few months now and I've only used it maybe...5 times...(I think?) SAD!
My goal is to use it four days a week (at least 30 minutes to start) with yoga afterwards. I feel stretching is super important, especially when my joints get so painful and sore. I do love yoga, so I'll give it a try.
I also thought, that blogging about it may help me stay motivated! I need to be motivated! I do feel like these days are flying by and I haven't made any effort to take care of myself. I want to run around with my kids. I want to feel healthy and well. I want to take care of my body. Why is this so hard? I had swam for a couple years and I had to take a break due to homeschooling and the timing of the swim class. I miss it and maybe someday I will go back, but for now, I need to work something out here!
Maybe talking about it will help. I don't know. If I come back and blog about it, you will know something is sticking. If I never blog about it again...well...who knows.
I know God is there for me and all of you out there! I know I can draw strength through Him.
