That said, I gotta REALLY work on getting in shape again! No more "I'll start tomorrows." I've done really good so far this week with eating well and exercise...of course, it's only been 3 days. I feel good about it, though. This time, I'm not trying to just look good (though that'll be a great bonus!)
I had a little health scare a few weeks ago and also found that some labs aren't looking as good as they did a few years ago
- Cholesterol is a bit high. Never been before.
- Ditto for blood pressure. Though my doc says it's "normal", "great", "perfect!" - it's WAY high from what it's usually been in the past and I don't like that.
- My resting heart rate has gone from 56 (what my chiro said was "an athlete's resting heart rate" (huh? me? athlete?? Well I was working out 6x a week back then...) to 88 at the Bloodmobile we had at church a few weeks ago. : / Not good. I liked that "athlete" thing - something I've NEVER called or even considered myself in any way, shape or form. I'm ready to get back to that!
- Knee and hip pain getting worse, and I know it's from carrying this extra weight.
And yeah, I wanna look HOT in my cruise pics. ; )
I started logging my walks at Daily Mile - if you're also on there, let's be friends and help motivate one another!
What's your favorite workout? What's your favorite motivation for working out? What gets ya going when you REALLY don't feel like it? Have you been on a cruise before - tell me allllllll about it!
