Hi -
(Scratching myself as if allergic to something here) -
I am going to try it again.
I have not exercised in probably over three years. My main excuse is that a little over 3 years ago I became very sick and could do little else but lie or sit and try not to puke. I got out of the habit of exercising. Not that it was a BIG habit in the first place but it went from some to nothing and stayed at nothing, even though I am no longer sick, and have no excuse. It is just inertia. I have a job in which I am very sedentary. I've got to do something. I am joining a fancy gym, one with everything (including a huge pool!) I have done this before, paid my dues and then not gone. But this time I tell myself it will be different because I am not sick, I have a job in which I can be flexible with my time so I don't have to go to the gym at crowded, less desirable times, and..... I bought a wetsuit
to swim in. I love to swim, but I hate cold water (normal swimming pool temperature feels like the arctic circle to me) and now I really have no excuse.
Just the inertia to get past.
So, although I mostly like the 3fc board for interesting discussion and ideas and opinions, and I don't think I need much hand-holding and support, well, just maybe....
:o a little here so I'm stopping in to say HI to the exercise group and I'll let you know how it is going. If I get too quiet, feel free to yell at me!
