Default Weekly Exercise Thread 11/1 - 11/7

Hello, sports fans! Well, I'm (with gratitude) robbing this wonderful thread idea from elsewhere on the site. It seemed to me that it would be a good idea to have a weekly thread here within our group devoted to exercise check-in; my thought is that it will help us to keep ourselves accountable for getting in some daily exercise, help us to motivate one another, and just plain be interesting since we like each other and are interested in how it's going for one another!

So, if you want to participate, just log in and give a quick post with an update on what you accomplished in the way of daily exercise! Doesn't have to be a big, long-winded explanation -- just the quick and the dirty, unless you have more to say!

Ok, Gretchen, we need to talk, sweetie. Now sit down and hear what I have to say:

1. You do not suck.

2. Ok, so you haven't exercised for 2 weeks. That means you didn't make it a priority. Um, my experience with you tells me that when you do that, when you make something a priority, it gets DONE. So what's getting you off track? Is it time management? Distraction? Don't feel like it when you get home? Pinpoint the detractor, and MAKE IT GO AWAY. You are fully capable of that. You've proven that to yourself already.

3. As I recall, all along, your goals have been about scale numbers and clothing sizes. You certainly don't have to do this publicly, but I would strongly recommend that you do some focused thinking about what kind of LIFE you want to live as a thin person?.....APART from scale numbers and clothing sizes. What do your days and weeks look like? How much and what form of exercise do they contain? What kinds of foods do you eat for the most part? What personal goals do you have? I think the answers to these questions will lead you down the right path, and the exercise will fall right into place.

4. Self-recrimination is counterproductive and a waste of time. It seems to me that you just need to set your compass, and then follow it.

5. So shut up with the self-hatin', make a reasonable plan that is in keeping with your overall fitness goals, and then you'll see both gains and losses.

I care about you, Gretchen, and I hate to see you speaking to yourself so unkindly. You wouldn't do it to me, so don't do it to yourself. You don't deserve it. You deserve some guidance -- and that will have to come from within, now that you've sought out some support from without.

I finally got off my butt for the first time in several months and took a walk. 45 min to be exact.

Yes I really do. I am actually looking forward to doing it again tomorrow. I think a little "me time" is exactly what I need right now. With the walking I can be doing something productive and actually relax at the same time. It makes me feel more positive the rest of the day too.

Woo hoo everybody! Tonight I did the 3-mile WATP with 3 lb weights. Gotta be honest, I didn't feel like it, but you know what? I did it anyway. Ayup.

I stretched for 20 minutes tonight My body is SO SO tight and tense from my work lately (move the store around, and breaking a BIG sweat!), it felt good On a side note, my PMS has arrived! I say this because I seriously downloaded 10 Celine Dion Songs and have them repeated on my computer, which is what prompted the stretching...
