Reflections about an exercise regimen
The problems with my exercise regimen have been a showing of low self-esteem, excuses, procrastination, and often times, a lack of interest. The true goal, well, my goal to lose weight is because I don't wish to weigh more than I am now. I am 100+ pounds overweight and I felt like giving up at times. I also tend to be a person who is quite a perfectionist. I have an all or nothing mindset that I would like to change. The truth is, I admit to rarely exercise. I have truthfully no exercise that interests me. I do the occasional walk, yard work, or helping out with the animals, but I feel like I want to do more. I am clinically obese, and I am looking into not just walking but also using equipment because of strength training. The only times I seem interested in exercise and exercise for periods of time is when I use gym equipment. Sadly, I rather not exercise because of a fear of giving up. Well, I have been living out that fear. Now how to overcome that fear will not be easy. However, it would be well worth it. I am too concerned that most exercises will be too hard to follow, which stems from the root cause of the black and white thinking that I have. It is time for me to deal with and overcome these issues.
