Started an exercise kick – 6/6/9

And to try and keep me honest I thought I’d publish my efforts to date.

Nothing very exciting but its a step in the right direction after a very long time of looking in the direction and wistfully thinking I should be heading that way. And that brings you to the realisation of how amazing hindsight is eh! Not that I have not thought that before but it’s a case of entering one of those arenas where you think, why has it taken me so long to do this, that or the other. And I will answer this with another well trod phrase, better late than never.

So, the list of accomplishments to date (minor in real terms but major in personal ones).

I am sure there is a better way to display this but I have as yet to discover it.

June 5th was my epiphany with the realisation that I was 5 weeks from a Dr’s appointment and I had yet again failed to lose any weight. Not a big deal per say except that this was 9 months on from warning signs that I did not like or need. So instead of thinking “I can do it when I want or need to…” I decided I better actually “do it” (not meaning to paraphrase Nike) before I suddenly found myself on the end of an unpleasant medical situation that could have been avoided with a little focus and diligence.

Crazy stuff, especially as I actually enjoy exercise when I manage to get myself out the door…will I never learn? The answer to that is yes, just very, very slowly…but hopefully in time.

PS For anyone wondering why I include Yoga (which I am trying as a means to expand my mind and increase my plasticity – something to discuss another day) as exercise, I recommend trying it before you decry it. Amazing how stretching can induce such increased heart rate and breathing. Which might say more about my state of health than Yoga but I don’t think so.
