Peer pressure

September 8, 2008 at 10:02 pm (asthma, diabetes) (, )

As a teen , I don’t really remember peer pressure being a big deal — I didn’t want to get in trouble. However, at 45, I seem to be subject to peer pressure. I joined a fitness class, but not any fitness class; I joined a bootcamp. I joined because I was hoping it would kick me back to the gym. The first class was tonight. Not quite as horrid as I expect, but not so sure it was fun. About half way through the class, it did cross my mind that a gym would be more fun or at least less painful. and I did cheer when we got to sit-ups. ( I can do them ) There were people at all levels there. Even the two dancers found the class hard.

I’m not sure this class is going to do what I want, but taking my blood sugar after class might  help.  Especially  with extremely  disappointing numbers.  At least the asthma was ok.

    I hope you’re not too sore today or tomorrow. When’s the next class?

    Stretching, light yoga, keeping moving, and vitamin M (that’s motrin) help . That and maintaining exercise. Of course the last never seems to keep me exercising.

    When’s the next class?

    I remember when I started exercising (again) a few years ago. I overdid it and became so sore that I literally could not pull up my own pants. Imagine discovering that in a public restroom. Yup. That was me. Either way… good luck!
