I joined a gym today. I wasn't able to go there today because of the snow and tomorrow I probably won't be able to either because it looks like I've got a really long day at the doctor's office and Physical Therapists, but hopefully Saturday I'll get over there and get on a bike. I can't do a lot yet but I can surely sit on a bike and pedal without falling off and maybe I can do some leg lifts. My goal is to run a 5k this year.
I've ran before. I used to run 6 miles every day, but that was obsession and not really a healthy thing.
So what's different this time?
Well, for once I'm not concerned about losing weight. I need to do that, but that's not my goal. It weird because I may not even change my eating habits all that much. No, this time I just want to move what I can still move while I can move it. I am getting to an age where I am beginning to realize that if I don't start moving something now, I won't be able to in the years to come. I'm not in it for a hot bod ... just one that'll work a little bit longer.
I have no desire to get obsessed with exercise, weight and food. Really, I'm SO over that. I just want to be active... you know, so I can still go skydiving and all that.
