Cackleberry's Exercise Diary

Postby Cackleberry » Sat Aug 02, 2014 9:18 pm

Thinking I should get my groove on a little more, so I am starting this exercise diary :)

Today I did my 7 minute workout app on my phone - i'm stuffed! Only 7 minutes (9 min including a warm up) but it sure is exhausting. My goal for exercise each day is either this or a 30 min walk outside.

Any start is a great start. Don't worry fitness is built and will arrive before you know it. :D

When I started exercise - it was a ten minute walk...and that nearly killed me! But each day I got more fit and by the end of my journey I could jog steadily for two hours and still be up for more exercise! :shock: 8)

Gawd, I could never imagine running for 2 hours :shock: A friend and I tried running using the C25K app and I think I did two of them. My ankles hurt me :( I love walking so I intend on extending my walks, we have footpaths around here to use and a walking trail behind us :)

Today I walked up to the park and back with hubby and the kids enjoying this nice weather. It took around 25 mins.

You will be surprised by how quickly your fitness will improve. The body is a marvellous thing and will reward your good behaviour towards it by giving you more energy and natural highs.

When I started I could never have imagined myself jogging at all. Once in my unfit days I ran to see if I could. I literally ran six steps before my legs ran out of oxygen and I fell to the ground. Believe...persist...and it will happen for you too! :)

Take heart...a little effort will pay you back a big time! 8)

I went for a walk to get some milk this morning - 20 min all up. I then went to the primary school for assembly this afternoon which was a 15 min round trip, so 35 min altogether.

Goal for tomorrow - Walk around the lake (2.5km) with a friend

You may feel the results of that walk in your legs tomorrow and/or the next day. Try to walk even though your legs ache...you will find that they will settle with a little movement. The ache will be muscles being built...fitness is coming! Get ready! 8)

Thanks. Walking doesn't really seem to make me sore, even walking around the city all day (maybe feet will be a little sore, but not really muscle aches). I have always been a walker. But I will tell you after doing some of those 7 minute workouts, my body sure does ache :lol: I know i'm alive after them!

You know you're alive...because you wish you were dead! :lol:

The ache is there because they are the muscles you hardly use...but those are the ones that pay off once you've got them. 8)

Don't live near the beach but have wanted to start up swimming as we have some great pools in our area. I always though how free I would be once my daughter started school (she is 8 and in Grade 2 now) to do things like that during the day, but I still haven't done it. I really do need to do my 7 min workout tonight though. I love that app!

Swimming is a great exercise. I never lost any great weight after a good swim session but it helped a good deal with my general fitness. All the muscle groups got a fab workout without high impact on the joints.

On weekends or after school I would take my daughter swimming with me. She would let me do a number of laps and then she would put me through some aerobic exercises (much of the exercises she made up). Her own swimming and fitness improved and it was/is a great daughter - daddy time.

Also the local pool provided me with great encourage along my weight loss journey. They would notice the changes and were enthusiastic for your success. When I finally reached goal my local pool gave me a swimming gift pack full of useful stuff and a certificate of recognition of my achievement. They also organised a local newspaper to do a story and take a picture at the pool.

The secret is to take your whole family on the journey with you. They are a vital part of your lifestyle and have to be a part of the new healthy lifestyle too.

I went from the old days crashing on the couch to sleep while my wife and daughter went for a walk together...to leading them to going for walks. It has been one of the rewarding things about the journey being able to share quality family time together. When the weather is good I would suggest walking to the local markets for a coffee during the weekends...something never dreamed of without a car ride being involved!

A friend's wife lost a great deal of weight through stomach banding around the time I did. She got too carried away with the new her and forgot what she did it for in the first place. She ended up taking up with a guy from her work and having an affair. My friend and her had been married less than a year...he was totally besotted by her - she let the journey turn her head and let a stranger who wouldn't have looked at her twice before seduce her.

Lesson...lose the weight but don't lose that which is important...those that love you unconditionally.
