I've never really been into exercise. I've never liked it. I think most of that stems from the fact that I hate people seeing me exercise and sweat.
Bit of a back story:
I have some major self-esteem issues, and basically I've tried to find ways to hide myself from others. Now if I'm by myself, I know that no one will know/see, I really have no problem exercising.
When I lived alone in my dorm room a few years ago, I had no problems with exercising. In fact, a lot of the times I feel that I over did it. I knew that there was no one living below me, so I knew that no one would know what I was doing.
After moving back home to my mom's bottom floor apartment, I barely did a thing unless I was home by myself. If someone was home, I'd close the door and tell my parents not to come in for x amount of time, and if I heard the smallest noise outside the door, I'd freak out and I'd stop.
I know this probably sounds totally insane.
Anyhow, I know that in order for me to lose weight, I need
to exercise. Changing food choices and portions won't be enough. Might be in the beginning, but for long term life change, no.
Right now I'm in a one bedroom (fairly small) apartment, second floor.
What are some things that can start me moving my body that won't disturb my neighbors below and allows me to move in such a small area?
As I haven't exercised in quite a bit, I know I need to start small.
I do have a beautiful park across the street from me that has trails, but I find that I can't bring myself to go out there by myself (takes me back to trying to hide from others).
My apartment doesn't have a fitness room or anything, nor does the place that I work at (can't really afford a gym membership at the moment either). So until I can move forward with some other things, I need to start somewhere, and that's my apartment.
Sorry for the long post. Does anyone have suggestions, or has anyone been in a somewhat similar situation?
