MACTAZ, do you do this in addition to working, or are you retired? I ask because you inspired me, but I will be returning to my job in a middle school where I will be standing and walking all day, although not walking at a steady rate, so I don't count it as exercise. (Wow, that was a long run-on sentence! Sorry!) Anyway, I KNOW I absolutely must exercise but after a long day, I am exhausted and thought I would be doing good if I could walk a half hour.
I was an overweight kid, young adult, adult. As a child, I was picked on for being fat, although I wasn't huge. In college I was the last one chosen for the volleyball team in gym. It doesn't make me sad, so don't feel sorry for me, I am WAY over that. My point is that due to this, I pretty much loathed any and all sports, exercise. I am the only one in my family who was overweight. With two sisters and a mother and some cousins with breast cancer, I am sure being overweight wasn't the reason for my cancer, but it sure didn't help.
Exercise for me is both a physical and mental challenge. I would like to do yoga but with two totally replaced shoulders, I don't know how much I could do. Any thoughts on that Miranda2060? I see it as fun stretching?
I am thinking of joining the gym again, I did that years ago and felt great. I need to ask my PS what my exercise limits are. I am trying to get myself in a positive mind frame as far as exercise goes. My daughter puts me to shame. She has a high stress corporate job, two pre-school children, yet uses her lunch time to run on the treadmill 3.4 miles! Her job has a gym.....more should. Also, she gets an hour lunch, I get a half hour like most jobs.
Anyway, thanks for the inspiration. Any and All suggestions are welcome! Just tell me, do you love exercising, or do you push yourself to do it and love how you feel afterwards?
