Now is the Time!

So here I sit.
In my recliner.
Wondering why I feel like crap.

It occurs to me, as I sit, in my recliner, that it could be too much recliner sitting is making me feel like crap.
And bad eating habits.
And my job becoming more desk work than physical work.
Desk work followed by recliner sitting.
And bad food.

So, I'm going to try to correct this problem.

I have started with a daily vitamin. Yes, Centrum Silver. Laugh away. Hubby dear did.

And I'm going to find my yoga mat.
A couple of years ago, I was doing some yoga. Then got side tracked with the moving thing.
I will try to remember to start slowly.
Last time I figured I could start with a 10 minute session. That's a nice short workout.
I held the first pose for 20 seconds. My thigh muscle burned and my entire leg shook with exhaustion.
Well, I'd never done this before. Just have to work into it.
Two poses and 3 minutes later?
I was sure I was having a heart attack. I found my recliner and collapsed. Woke up an hour later.
But I kept at it. After a few weeks I could do 20 minutes. Then came the moving thing.

Now it's time to get back on track. I need to rebuild some muscle and lose some flabby stuff that someone dropped off here when I wasn't looking.

And I think I'll start back at 3 minutes. And work my way up again.


  1. Sounds just like me trying to get into running. I was absolutely convinced I was having a full scale heart attack. But yoga sounds nicer. Maybe I'll have to try that instead.

  2. Naomi, I enjoyed when I got more comfortable.
    Running? I don't think I'd live through that ;)
