I’ve taken my first steps toward getting myself healthy, literally. I’ve decided on step-aerobics because it’s low impact, requires a minimal amount of inexpensive equipment that doesn’t take up much room, doesn’t require a gym membership, and I can do it in the buff. Maybe tonight I’ll watch the video and figure out how to make it more effective and interesting.

The idea is to keep it up and eventually get my weight down and loose my man boobs. My doctor seems to think that regular intense exercise will bring down my blood pressure and get my cholesterol levels in balance. I’m also hoping that the exercise will help reduce stress and help out with the suspected dysthymic disorder. If I can stick with it there are all kinds of benefits. The challenge will be sticking with it.

4. B) Charlie Chaplin
5. A) Saint-Saens

Today’s questions were somewhat obscure and nearly all of my correct answers were WAGs or by elimination so I’m not going to claim to have known any of them except #4. I guessed #1 (Holmes seems like a violin kind of guy).For #2, the words “peace-loving” gave it away, thereby eliminating Sonny & Cher and The Captain & Tenille. (I don’t remember that week.) I got #3 after running through the song in my head a couple of times. I recall seeing Modern Times on AMC a while back and the host mentioned that Chaplin had composed the score. As far as #5 goes, I had no clue what-so-ever. Did Mozart ever write an opera?

  1. I’m not sure you have a realistic view of step-aerobics. I took a class (for college credit to force myself to go) and was surprised at just how difficult it was. Of course, I am more overweight than you are, add in the asthma and my general lack of anything approaching coordination and it could be just me… Aerobics minus the step went much better. I also actually enjoyed water aerobics, but that’d be hard to do without paying for a class. Your bathtub just isn’t deep enough.

    1. My view of exercise in general is that it’s painful, masochistic, and rather unpleasant. That may be why I prefer to suffer in private.
      I didn’t say it was or would be easy. Today is only my second day at it but so far it’s been easier for me than any other aerobic exercise I’ve tried (running, stationary bike, and that stepper thing). I’m only doing a very basic march step right now. I’ll have to watch the video and see how I can add some variety and possibly more intensity.
      I hate running, always have. Exercise bikes and treadmills cost too much and take up too much room. I’m also a little adverse to going out for a brisk walk at 5 AM and I have a hard time motivating myself to do anything but eat dinner in the evening. I decided to try step aerobics for the reasons I gave. I need to do something to get an intense aerobic workout and s-a required the least investment. The important thing is that I stick with it and make it a habit; that will be the most difficult part.
      I’ve heard that water aerobics is just about the perfect aerobic exericse — low impact, great resistance, etc, but a pool is a definite requirement.
