What's New in workout


Hello! So in the past months I've been gaining weight. I hadn't really realized that since I don't have any full body mirrors at home hahaha but a few weeks ago I tried to put on some jeans and didn't fit me anymore. It made me feel so sad and ugly, so I've been trying to work out on a regular basis but I just can't find the energy to do so.

Do you work out regularly? Can you give some advice on how to achieve it? Thanks for reading me

Recommendations for a yoga/stretching/gentle workout channel on Youtube?

I would like to explore starting a habit of gentle movement inside at home. I have a currently undiagnosed condition that is causing swelling and mild pain in my knees, so I do have some limitations physically. Mentally and emotionally I find intentional exercise very difficult because it makes me focus on my body which I prefer to dissociate from. I have been doing body-based and somatic therapy for nearly a year now, though, and some of the panic when I connect to my body is subsiding, so I think it is a good time to start a routine like this. I don't know where to start, though, and thought I would ask if anyone has a recommendation. Thank you in advance!

People should not be able to just use and abuse you while taking you for granted. They often say they’re going to pay you back when you aren’t even asking for anything in return. I guess this kind of makes me feel like being alone is the ultimate resort as opposed to a beat up pillow top mattress. I’m not #narcissistic , but personalities can be terribly #colorful , #compulsive , and #Complex . Like I have a #Bigheart . When I’m at work, I feel extremely welcoming and hospitable. I also have social anxiety along with cardiomyopathy, and the best way that I’ve been coping have not been the best. I quit my #Workout routine because of how overwhelming things got. In March, I suffered a massive #PanicAttack that led to a fluid buildup in my lungs and I’ve been trying to get better since. Going #Backtowork made me feel frightened because on top of my #BPD , I often feel I’m not useful or too useful. Not everyone deserves to be taken in and showered with #hospitality . I feel like that only makes me seem #hypocritical . On top of that, I’m battling #Addiction and #Depression .

Any excercise tips? #Fibromyalgia

Trying to stay in shape but I’m gaining weight and losing muscle mass. I’m exhausted all the time from #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis and #Fibromyalgia and the muscle pain has been so awful for the last several months. I drag myself to work around noon and then collapse back at home at 6 and hope that my bosses don’t notice that I’m not even managing to work half days. I feel useless and like a weight on society and the last thing I have left is this imperfect body and I just want to keep it in as good condition as I can but I don’t see how I can possibly excercise through the pain and exhaustion. This flare won’t go away. I’ve been looking for a good (free) yoga app that has more gentle yoga. I had been trying to build up from stretching to yoga to barre to Pilates but as soon as I try more intensive yoga or barre my body gives out. The pain in my legs has kept me from getting out and walking. There’s no public pools where I live so I can’t do water excercise. I’m lost and don’t know what to do. My spouse is overwhelmed trying to care for me. I hate this. #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis #Fibromyalgia #ChronicPain #Workout #Advice #overwhelmed



I started working out with a personal trainer today, and it went well! I never would have thought I could do this. Anyways, I'm proud of myself and wanted to share it:)

My mental barrier has emerged again.

I was tested positive for covid. I have recovered now. But I'm facing extreme weakness, and fatigue. But what I'm worried about is, before being tested positive I was somehow working out. I was able to do it. It was somewhere inside me that I need to workout everyday. But after covid hit and after my recovery I've lost my mental strength again. Which came to me very difficultly. And I'm so sad about that. Now I can't find motivation to even get out of my bed. I want to workout and lose weight but I'm not able to do it. It's so frustrating and exhausting. I don't know what to do.
Please advice me something so that atleast I'm able to do my daily workout.

One of my goals of working on myself is confidence. This evening, i pushed myself to go on a evening walk. I'm trying to walk 3 miles a day to help shed some weight. During my walk, i kept telling myself why I was out on a walk and told my self that i was doing a awesome job being out there and doing it.

I kept repeating the word "confidence" and ive started to say it daily to help me work and build my confidence. Do you have a positive word you say?

I took a photo of this during my evening walk. It was such a random thing along the road and it made me smile.

One of the things I'm trying to work on is having more confidence. I feel that i will have more confidence if i get into better shape. I have lost weight in the past but gained it back. I remember having more confidence back when i was smaller.

I'm trying hard to watch what i eat again, doing low carb and watch my sugar intake. I have set myself a small goal to do at least 3 miles a day walking and start a plank monthly challenge.

Today, i went on a 10 mile hike to see 10 different waterfalls. . I could tell how out of shape i was but kept pushing myself. Ive done this hike before, but was never this worn out. I was happy i finished it still and this was a wake up call to push myself to be more active. I even brought a little buddy with me on my hike. Its a my little pony toy. Im a pony collector so it made me smile taking photos of my pony during my hike. Little things like that helps me smile.
