Hi @jleontiadis I’m so sorry to hear that you have trouble getting out of bed. No need to reply here but curious if it’s exhaustion, pain, or all the above. I hope you’re giving yourself some grace to be where you are.
I’m no expert but I do like how AthletaWell conversations redefine working out. If you want to start “working out”, maybe set a goal to do something that feels good for your body for 10 mins like walking or gentle stretching and see how that feels? Also, sometimes it takes finding some great music or a good podcast to listen to in order to get me out of bed or moving.
Here to listen and support you ❤️
I appreciate your enthusiasm. I will not dive, but find a smart and easy paced way to get back in. I’m dedicated to my health and admire everyone’s dedication as well. I’m usually the one giving advice but this time around I’m aware that I need a strong positive community. I will take a walk tomorrow- heels be ****ed.
So glad you're here - welcome! If you haven't already, definitely take advantage of the 10-minute express obe videos. I like to stack them on top of one another. It's amazing how quickly 30 minutes goes by! If you need more inspo, we've got our Guides who can offer up suggestions as well. @Chris_F @Dani_P are experts in movement and fitness and I'm sure would be more than happy to connect.
Hi @keyeager94 ! So happy to have you in the AthletaWell community and I totally hear you about feeling stuck in your current workout routine! I've definitely been feeling this way and am noticing my body craving different types of movement and intensity as the seasons have started to change, too. I would love to connect more and support you however I can! Please don't hesitate to reach out for some of my top tips to getting out of a workout funk or just to chat. 🙂
I am SO excited about this community and platform👏🙏I Congratulations on retirement. I will be retiring next year and have been researching fitness and eating strategies to embrace as my ‘new normal’ in order to
live an active, vibrant, enriching and optimally healthy ‘rest of my life.’ My work is physical and by the time I get home and do the dinner and clean up stuff I am done for the evening. Little by little each day I choose healthy clean eating and a bit of exercise and then I fall off my plan, yet I still start again, and again…It’s a slow cycle for me to build practices, routines and healthy habits. It’s been 35 years of me being very overweight and unfit. I also feel overwhelmed and sometimes unable. So let both of us (all of us) do this as much as we can, little by little, with the support and tools we have here at ATHLETAWELL. So cool!
Thanks… really enjoying retirement. I share your struggles with eating and exercise. I am a lifelong Weight Watcher member - struggling right now to get back to goal. I thought it would be so easy to do it in retirement. However, even though you have more time to plan and focus on exercise and health, you also have more time for going out to eat, happy hours and traveling and being out of routine. That being said, I have been more physically active in retirement. So… just remember, it is a process.
I've decided to join today and see what's going on in this forum. I have an exercise routine that I like (run 3x/ week and supplement with light core exercises) but am always looking for new things to keep it interesting. I'm in my early 50s and the weight is slowly coming on so maybe this will help me stay motivated to keep it stable. Looking forward to checking out the workouts.
