I haven't posted on this subject in a while. That's very telling to the state of my body. You know it's been too long since a workout when cleaning the floors leaves you tired and sore.
Sigh. Floors 1, Shiela 0. Not my proudest moment.
The Wii's been relocated to my son's room since Christmas. They kids got new games as gifts and it was just easier to let them play in their rooms than in the living room. Moving the system back and forth is so inconvenient that I haven't used it since. That's as good excuse as I got.
Fortunately, it's not all doom and gloom. I did lose those 10 holiday pounds, strictly through dieting. But that turns out to be another excuse for not exercising. I don't like to work out when I start eating less because I'm already hungry. Add in the metabolism boot from moving more (weight loss = eat less + move more) and I'm starving. Not a good mix at the beginning. It's hard enough as is.
Now that the extra pounds are off, though, that excuse gets a swift kick in the pants. A good exercise, btw :)
So I wanted a change of scenery - get out of the house to work out. There's only so many Wii tennis games you can play. I can't afford a gym, but I found something within my budget. It's nearby, too, across the street from my kid's high school. Our local Rec Center: the Red Mountain Multigenerational Center.
Of course, I am the only one there wearing a Slytherin t-shirt, but that's how I roll :)
Will it replace my Wii work out? Prolly not. But it's a nice change of pace. And anything that keeps me moving is a good thing.
TIP: Check out your local options. You can probably find something affordable that you just may love.
Happy moving and ¡Buen Provecho!
