I feel a little bit like I'm rebelling against myself (as I tend to do)...
I DID go to the Y but I didn't go to the treadmill. I saw someone I knew and ended up in a "Core Flex" class with them.
I liked it as far as exercise goes - even though my arms are now shaking.
We used a ball and weights and laid on the floor and lifted parts of our bodies that I had forgotten existed. I couldn't do parts of it.
Like the "plank".
And I kept being afraid I was going to fart.
But I reminded myself that I've recently lost 28 pounds with basically no exercise.
And I couldn't get myself out of a bathtub four months ago.
I couldn't sit on the ground because it was too hard to get up.
And in the last year, I've had a broken elbow. And a chronically painful knee (until I lost some weight).
I can DO this.
And I feel pretty darn proud of myself for trying.
