Finding my exercise niche

So, I haven’t done The Shred for a couple weeks now. I have no idea why other than we‘re not a good match for each other. I found myself having to modify nearly everything and just sort of thought, “meh. I’m not cut out for this yet” maybe I’ll try it again at a later date when I‘m down some more el bees. I’m still hopping on the Wii even though it’s not the ideal fat blasting machine. Great for yoga and balance stuff though, so I’ll keep at it. What I need is a calorie burner that I enjoy. Walking seems like a nice fit but I hate that it’s dependent on the weather. Some days I would kill to go for a walk but its raining (and this is a problem because I have to walk in our fields, no pavement out here in the boonies besides the busy state route) and yet other days I’m having an anxiety flare up and leaving the house is an impossibility no matter the weather. A treadmill would take care of both of these issues but have I mentioned I‘m an artist? Yeah, I have no monies. Maybe I can find one at a garage sale this year. I would love that. Other than that I have no idea what else I could do. I'd love ideas, If anyone has some!

Also. I'm 320!!! After being stuck in the 30’s for so long it seems like I flew through the 20’s this past month. I can’t believe how close I am to the 200’s. For so long it seemed like such a far away dream, and now here it is - maybe 8-10 weeks from happening. So, so, so exciting for me!

  1. Congrats on the weight loss! You're doing great!!
    I also didn't have much money to invest in working out when I started, so here's a couple things I did. I googled "body weight exercise" and found some really good basic exercies that use only your body weight, so no money required. Most of them can be modified, even the push ups I do standing up against the wall. I also did buy an aerobic step (but if you're handy, you could easily make this yourself). Then I put on my favorite tv show and just stepped up and down. It's pretty basic, but I started at 340, so I needed something relatively easy to start.
    Good luck!
