If you have been around Looking Joli Good for any amount of time, you know that I love to workout! When I hurt myself last year, once I finally admitted to myself that I could no longer work out, I didn’t know what to do with myself.
It’s been a really long year of healing and very slow progress. Since I have finally made some major progress in the healing department, and I have begun to work out.
I’ve been dying to get back into a regular workout routine. While I am still not healed enough to jump back into my previous level of exercising, I’ve started to do some simple workouts. I’ve also learned to listen to my body and take it super slowly. There is no rush and no point in reinjuring myself or undoing any progress.
I have restarted back at square one… although that’s not even true, it is actually more like square -100. I decided there is no place better to pick up than exactly where I started 11 years ago… working out with Leslie Sansone.
She is so encouraging and always so happy. She does extremely simple exercises that are easy to follow along with. Despite her exercises being low impact and easy to follow, I still have to simplify and modify the movements. It is all part of listening to the cues that my body is giving me.
If you decide to join me on my road to recovering my physique, you can start with this happy one-mile walk. Don’t forget to keep good form, warm-up before, and stretch out after the exercises! Listen to your body and do what is within your ability. Work up to a higher level of activity as you feel you can and as you get stronger.
Ready? No excuses, let’s do it!
