R is for wondeRing…yes, that’s right.  WondeRing!  🙂  You see, I’m sitting at my desk this chilly (to me – the window is open, and there’s an ever so slight breeze) Saturday morning with a cup of coffee…


…next to my laptop and I’m wondeRing if any of my readers have a favorite trail they like to hike, a favorite place they like to run/walk, etc.  You see, I originally began this blogging challenge as a way of telling others about the Sonoran Desert, AND as a way of incorporating much needed exercise into my life.  You see, I’m 41 years old, I weigh 152lbs, my triglyceride levels are 232 (as of February), and my blood glucose was 98.  I changed MOST of my diet since getting the go ahead from my oral surgeon – had jaw surgery over Christmas Break and was on a liquid diet for 12 weeks, which accounts for some the high tri and glucose numbers – but I still have my morning cup of coffee!  Unfortunately though, I’m finding lately that I’m losing  my motivation to exercise.  A co-worker got me to sign up for a 2 mile run/walk for Diabetes next Saturday, and I really should get out and hit the trails to practice.  I don’t what to be the only sad, pitiful person huffing and puffing  1/2 a mile into it!  So what am I doing?  SITTING AT MY DESK! ~sigh~

So, dear reader, what do you like to do to exercise?  I would really like some ideas, as I’m wondeRing how to get my motivation back up where it needs to be!  Happy Saturday!  🙂

    I can’t balance well enough to walk any distance, but I have a rowing machine and a stationary bicycle set up facing the TV and exercise any time I’m watching.

    I’m a walker/runner. We have a small mountain preserve across the street from my house and it has several trails. One day I got tired of feeling guilty for never taking advantage of those trails and went for a walk. I look forward to getting out there three to four times a week. 🙂

      I wish I had something right next door to me, but I don’t so everything requires a drive (although some are less than 5 minutes away). I love hiking and walking, and a co-worker got me to sign up for a Diabetes 2 mile Run/Walk this coming Saturday. BUT…if I blow off exercising for one day, that’ll ruin me for the next week or two! :/

    Motivation is very important when it comes to exercise. There are so many things a person can do to get the exercise they require. I love going for walks, the beauty of nature is a huge motivation for me. Also, dancing is fun, you just blast some good tunes and you don’t have to go anywhere. And I’ve actually read on multiple occasions that housework is a good workout, which I believe because when you get a good scrub on, you work up a good sweat.

    Best of luck finding something to get your going, and have fun with a-z.
