Mission 8: Overcome Exercise Barriers

This is another mission that makes it easier for you to do the things that will make you slim.

Now that we’ve selected an exercise, we’re going to get everything organized and remove the obstacles that stand between you and your activity.

It’s often these barriers that make the thought of exercise seem so onerous.

Once they’re removed, the path becomes clear and getting on with your exercise feels easier.

No more stress or disorder.

Instead, let’s make the path of least resistance one that leads directly to your bike, walking route or skipping rope.

    Thankfully this one isn’t too much work for me. I have everything I need and gradually upgrade as I make progress. Really good advice though.

    Our group responses are as follows: Do not need to join a gym as you can use the RC exercise room free.
    You can get a scholarship at the Y for a sliding fee scale — low income people.
    Cincinnati Recreation Centers — Membership is $20 a year.
    Appropriate walking shoes — gym shoes.
    Water bottle filled with water.
    Possibly using a pedometer! But we have found pedometers do not last that long.
    Use your watch as a stop watch when walking.
    Hiking National and Local Parks in the good weather — use your walking buddy.
    Headphone Digital Radio or MP3 Player — download the music you want to listen
    to.
    Other suggestions:
    Tai Kwon Do.
    Aerobics at home with Richard Simmons
    Silver Sneakers for anybody 60 or over — Medicaid pays for it. Run by the Y!

    I found I used things like ‘it takes too long to put shoes on’ as an excuse, so I went to the sport shoe store and brought some of those fitflops. So they are comfy, good for walking and easy to put on, I keep them at my front door. Easy peasy!

    I need to buy a new pair of walking shoes, preferably custom fit ones because I have bad feet and tend to roll my ankle quite a bit. After about 3 days, it hurts to walk long distances in my current walking shoes. I also need to sign up for the zumba class.

    I have an elliptical and I go to the gym, which has a daycare, for my 2 year old. I also have a jogging stroller for him, so I have no excuses not to workout everyday. My plan is set!

  7. Danielle Desjardins says:

    I had most of the stuff but picked up a belt last week to hold my water bottles, also some anti-blisters socks so I can walk without problems. I have found my skipping rope and will add this exercise to my walking routine:) It does help when we have everything in place:)

    clear out around recumbent bike, set up laptop stand, shoes, water bottle, arm weights buy new clothes hanger since you are now using the bike for what it is really intended for. 🙂

    Have treadmill, shoes, clothes, bike, DVD/DVD player for aeorbics, TV, private exercise room! Now, need to make my schedule for the week! If I don’t schedule exercise into my schedule, I allow too many interruptions into my day making the thought of exercise a burden! Walked 5 miles this week (2 days of exercise time)! Felt great! Now to keep going!
