Sitting comfortably?

Comfort and discomfort

I've just done my morning exercise (late as it is now midday!). I also missed out my skips!
I am wondering, as usual, between the dislike of doing my exercises and the benefit of doing the exercises. If I really don't feel like exercising, I have to push myself to do some exercising and to make sure I do enough, as I take the view that doing something is better than nothing!  However even when I do a reduced exercise load it still should give me some discomfort to be of value.

Well, last night I watched a TV program about an overweight couple, trying to reduce their weight with expert help from dietiticians and behavioural and fitness experts. They had to be seperated as together, they were just too comfortable. She weighed 21 stones and he was over 15 stones and both were classified obese. They had obvious diet and fitness issues and set about changing their habits to lose weight. The program was very interesting, and I need to research it some more ( I do not know it's title or if it is a series and what the outcome might be). Overall, the wife was sticking to the plan better than the husband (he had a night out with 10-15 pints and a curry!). If I find follow up details I will post about them here.

I was interested to see that there were similar issues to myself, in that they both liked food high in carbohydrates. I need to stop having the extra cheese sandwiches and eat fruit and vegetables instead!
Still I enjoyed my jog this morning and while the temperature for late May is quite cool, there is plenty of blossom around and flowers, trees and plants in general are blooming and putting on a good show!

Finally, on comfort and discomfort, I briefly mention that 2 nights ago I could not sleep due to headache and toothache! I will need to drink more water and less tea and coffeee to reduce my headaches and try to get good dental treatment and look after my mouth and teeth better! I should also train myself to eat more fruit and vegetables instead of cheese sandwiches. A bit of a challenge!
Bring it on!

So if you are sitting comfortably, don't stay there too long but get up and get exercising! :-)
