I have just finished my first set of exercises. It took me nearly an hour because I had to get familiar with what to do. You know, feet apart this far and keep the back straight etc. I put this off for a while this morning. Seemed that the vacuuming just had to be done. This is one of my usual tricks to put off exercise. But not anymore. I think of how much worse off I’ll be if I don’t complete this program.
I enjoyed the session. I began with a 5 minute warm up on the treadmill (which we’ve had for years and I’ve used it twice before). Then I did five different stretches also as part of the warm up. I have NEVER done a warm up before. That always seemed like too much effort when all I wanted to do was get it over and done with. This time I’m doing what the book tells me.
Then I began 8 repeats of 9 different exercises. These range from lateral raises to abdominal crunches. I think the least enjoyable one was lunging. My knees were under pressure with that one
Having a big mirror was helpful. I could see if I was standing straight enough or if my feet were pointing in the right direction.
So tomorrow is another walk. I can either go on a walking track by the river or down the street. I would love to get a comment from anyone who might be following this blog. Even just to say hi. Blogging is part of this whole deal. It’s my partner who I won’t let down and who encourages me. See you tomorrow.
