Honestly? My favorite workout is the one I can do without getting out of bed!
Seriously - I don't do well with structured workouts. I will dance, but only when I'm the only one on the property. Hubby and the rest of the family make too much fun of me.
I can't bring myself to exercise in a group situation. The last couple of times I tried, I was three times the size of everyone else in the class. Didn't go back...
You would fit right in to my class dee :) we have mostly larger women and all age ranges (the oldest lady is near 80). I tell them how to adjust the workouts to be easier or harder yet keep pace with the steps.
You need a supportive environment. Your family laughing does NOT help. That's why I like Curves. No men, no mirrors, no judgement. It's all women and no one cares if you're 100 pounds or 600 pounds. And it's a true not caring - not like in some places where you see they care and are trying to be polite.
I totally wish you could join my club!
Kido- I wish you could too! Remember that exercise doesn't have to be an hour. Even a half hour is good - just get your heart rate up. Do little things like take the stairs, park farther away, walk more whenever possible. It adds up! If you can get a pedometer, aim for 10,000 steps a day. Posted via Mobile Device
