Exercising Again

Who went to the gym this morning?


Who is amazingly out of shape?

Again, me.

Not so excited about that second one. I did a half hour on the elliptical and my legs are sore and I was TIRED at the end of it. I'm going to ease myself back into this exercise thing so that I don't hurt myself (which has happened before). This week, I'm going to alternate elliptical with the exercycle. I used to use the exercycle a lot when I was younger, but haven't in years. Maybe it will get me psyched up for actually getting my sister-in-law's bike (that she left for me when she moved across the country) out of the basement (where it has been gathering lots of dust) in the Spring.

Next week, I will add strength training to the mix. I know that it's important and I will do it, but if my legs are this sore after just a half hour on the elliptical, I think squats can wait a week.

Congratulations!! Getting there is half the battle! :)

You'll get back into shape. I think it is smart on your part to east back into things - getting hurt is the LAST thing you want right now!! :)

Good job! And very good idea to ease back into exercise! :)
