So now is the time for me to fess up. Remember all the talk about the fish when it was really my financial tracking I was avoiding? Well, here we go again. My biggest worry about full-time RVing is that I am currently 5 foot 6.5 inches and 293 pounds. Worse, I'm in horrible shape! I can't walk up & down the stairs in my house > 2X before I am huffing/puffing and my legs give out. Doing the Wii Fit's simplest yoga poses, I shake, and get comments of concern from the WiiFit lady. I can't even ride my motorcycle for more than an hour without being sore for days. I have always been overweight. I have had years when I was in good shape. I jogged and hiked and rode my mountain bike. About 2 years ago, I had and accident and broke some bones. I was trapped in the upstairs of my house for months. I'm all healed, but never regained any of the cardiovascular or muscular fitness I had.
I had a personal melt down about the whole issue Monday night. Time for some action. I spent yesterday putting together my menu (you can check out Sparkpeople.com) and making my grocery list. I didn't make it to the grocery store (much more fun to watch movies on the couch!).
This morning I woke up, showered, took the dogs to daycare, and arrived at work promptly. Only to find out that I was 5 hours early!! ARGH!! Imagine that? Just enough time to get everything on my new grocery list, put the groceries away, wash the veggies, write a blog entry, and get back to work. Makes me think someone is watching out after me :0)
After the big trip to the grocery store.. my back hurts and my feet hurt. Can I count that as a work-out? Since I have gotten this out of shape, I am realizing I have changed my life so I don't have to put in as much effort. I don't make big grocery runs, I only get 4-5 bags at a time. I've been doing more of my shopping on the web instead of braving the stores. Picking up mail once per week instead of every other day (God forbid I take 20 steps to the mail box daily). I've quit taking care of my large fish tank (a 300 gallon, fully enclosed, fish tank takes a step stool and some gymnastics to keep clean). Small things that my brain has done to make my life take even less effort.
