I have been struggling with trying to exercise as much now (that I am working full time) as I was when I was home. I exercised everyday when I was home....and now after a LONG day teaching, the last thing I want to do is workout. By the time I get the boys home and fed, it is usually too late to go for a walk or bike ride (plus Reilly goes to bed at 6 - 6:15!!). I do have an elliptical machine which I try to use 2-3 times a week.
I found a new exercise that I am excited about and it is FUN!! It is a type of dance class.....and yes...a pole is involved!! It is SOOOO much fun! It is a great workout - the first time I did it I was sore for DAYS!! I am able to do things after 4 classes that I didn't think were possible! My hip seems to be taking this class well. A few pops here and there...but that is "normal". I am not sure that Dr. Millis would quite approve of this.....especially when I am wearing "the shoes" dancing!! I will just be careful and make sure nothing happens to my "new and improved" hip!
I look forward to the class each week.....and feel good about myself after I leave...and that is the most important thing.

One of the essential attributes that is important when trying to get to the gym, can be not necessarily getting to the gym. Working out is the main goal. If some individuals feel that they can't make it to the gym on a regular basis. Pick one or two activities that one loves to do. It can be something that one enjoyed as a child. Basketball, tennis or football. Working out with friends drives individuals to become competitive in a friendly manner. That can push one to do their best and get a great workout. Setting goals for what individuals want to accomplish can be more self-rewarding than going on a strict no "carb" diet. These simple tips can help make weight loss and exercise enjoyable!
