I have decided this summer i am going to make a lot of changes to become healthier and to take better care of my diabetes. I have got to get healthier and I need to lose weight and improve my diet and take better care of myself.
I am lazy. I admit it i hate to exercise. The last two weeks I have been going on 2 hour walks with a friend and his dog. Every morning I wake up and i think to myself "I DON'T wanna walk, why can't I be fat and happy" but i get up anyway. I am still not motivated in any way to walk alone and I am greatful that my friends have a high strung dog that has to be walked everyday.
I was thinking of adding yoga at least 3 days a week to my workout. I was also thinking of adding in a walking dvd at least 3 days a week as well.
I don't want to burn myself out to the point i make excuses or rationalize not doing some kind of exercise. I'm hoping that over the summer i will get into a groove that I can continue even after I pick back up in the fall with classes.
If anyone has an ideas, tools or ideas to help stay motivated I would gladly take some advice. I haven't been taking my diabetes seriously in the last year and a half and i know without a shadow of a doubt that attitude has to change.
