Getting in Shape to Get in Shape…

I have been wanting to take a taekwondo class, and I finally decided to just do it. The problem is, I am in no shape to keep up with the class. I am 40 pounds overweight, and I lead a very sedentary life. Luckily I am still healthy, but who knows what my unhealthy lifestyle will bring in the future?

I consulted my doctor, and he recommended starting out slowly. Five to ten minutes on the treadmill, and work my way up to longer duration. Simple stretching exercises for a few minutes each day. Yesterday was my first day, and I managed fifteen minutes on the treadmill. I stretched for five minutes, and did a little weight lifting with five pound weights.

In a few weeks, I hope to be able to walk to the beach, about a half mile away. In a few months, I hope to be able to finally join the TKD class, and be able to keep up with the rest of the class.
