I don't know about the rest of you, but I have been very sedentary this winter. I've been a near complete computer chair potato. I always feel very run down and frequently depressed. I started a new night turn job in the fall that has been challenging.
I'm weak, overweight and out of shape. I think there may be a link between all of the aforementioned facts. Fortunately, despite not taking good enough care of my body, I am healthy with no illnesses or infirmities.
The thought has crossed my mind that if I worked out regularly (aerobic with some strength training) that I may look and feel better mentally and physically.
The problem is .... a sad, sad lack of motivation and discipline. Unlike many, I will readily admit that I am in my present state due to eating too much of the wrong things, not enough of the right things and not enough exercise. So, I know what my problem is, and I know what the solution is .... but what am I going to do about it???
I cannot even think of a heavy workout regimen right now, so I have a tentative plan to start small. I am going to try to go on a short, probably rather slow walk today. I will also try to do some simple exercises, such as squats and modified push ups while watching my "shows". The best time of day for me probably will be afternoon. That will be fine until the worst of the summer heat comes. I may have to make adjustments then.
I've been thinking about this for a while, but I'm stepping up my thinking since getting dates for Survival Class, Structure Burn, etc. I don't think I'll go for the Survival Class this year, not just because of my current state of computer chair potatoness, but also because of my schedule. I may have to try to get a haz mat ops class in some time before May also. I just don't have enough time to do it all, so I think Survival Class is out (this year). The goal is FF I in May. I was pretty much set for that until they apparently bumped up the haz mat requirement from R & I to Ops.
This completes the first installment of the Reformation of a Computer Chair Potato. Maybe.
