Exercise: Getting healthy!

1 Comment

Between writing, working, studying Japanese, and having time for myself, it’s time for me to start losing weight. Now, weight is something most people are uncomfortable talking about, but I believe that opening up and talking about it can have great benefits.

Why? Because when others know your goals, or know that you’re working on losing weight, they can help. Even simple things like moral support are of great assistance to someone with low self-esteem. Or maybe your family and friends can help you make healthier food choices.

Support, in the end, is a necessity. It makes you feel like you’re not alone and that your battle isn’t fruitless.Just Dance 4I ordered Just Dance 4 from amazon last week and it arrived today. I played the demo of its prequel before it came out and enjoyed it, which led me to buy this one. I played it for 40 minutes tonight and I must say, I could feel it working!

Aside from this, I also have some dumbbells and a weighted jump rope for exercise. My grandparents also have a treadmill; we just need to get it out of the garage.

Between these things, I’ve got a good exercise routine going. Add the fact that I’m eating more fruit and am cutting back on snacks, and I think weight loss is something I’ll be successful in.

I’m down 15 lbs already this year, and that was before all these changes. Now, I’m going to lose even more!

What I’d like to say to everyone is that, if you have a goal, no matter what it is – weight loss, writing, drawing, work-related, anything – just go for it. Get support from the people around you and don’t give up. Remember that a lot of people have achieved their goals and if they can, then so can you.

If you fight for it, you’ll make it.

Have a great week, everyone. 🙂

I'm a writer, a reader, a gamer and a dreamer. I love losing myself to thought and considering possibilities. That is how I create my stories and weave the erratic tales into readable ones.

One thought on “Exercise: Getting healthy!

  1. Hi Natasha,
    thank you for your encouraging words! 🙂
    I am trying to be a lot healthier myself. My husband actually motivated me to take some actions. I am not so much into games (I am more the dreamer type) therefore I am trying to eat healthier and do yoga and some running. My husband got inspired by an article about cold water weight loss and now gives that one a shot. In case you are interested you can find it here: http://68anda6pack.com/2013/10/20/cold-water-weight-loss/
    Unlike me he is more into games and our son has got a console that he may borrow for his exercises 😉
    Anyways, keep up your good blogging work, I will certainly come back more often 🙂
