Exercising harder keeps weight off longer according to an article published yesterday through Reuters. Wow, now I just have to find 75 minutes a day to exercise. Right now my neighbor has the time and she is doing phenomenal on Weight Watchers. However, she is the first one to say that she can do it, because her kids are grown and out of the house. I am just going along slowly in the weight loss program, at .9 lbs per week. Last night was a big -.6, it's time for me to get more exercise. I can find 101 reasons about what I do instead of exercising and I am still looking for the chart on blogging and calories burned.
What does my exercise consist of? Well this week, it's going to be helping out at two track meets and possibly one practice. Luckily for me, it's not cross country because I can't run to save my life. Hey, can't....that's a word I only use for running. Even when I was a kid running to school because I didn't want to be late, I would have to stop because I had cramps. In junior high, I became the team manager of the track team. Now I am afraid to even start running, what if I look stupid?
Someday, I will run which I think will be the key to my weight loss. How do I know this? I have a 45 year old brother in excellent shape who runs about 8 miles every day or so, not because he loves running, but because he loves to eat! Time to get that ipod going and try the couch-to-5k running program, again. I tried it last fall and it was sad, very sad, I cheated on a few of the runs and walked. Maybe some people just aren't meant to run. Any new runners out there? How did you do it?
