Getting Back Into Exercise

Thursday, December 03, 2009

Like most people, I hate exercise. I love how I feel after. I love the results when done regularly. I hate to take the time to do it. There are so many things I'd rather be doing: editing my NaNoWriMo novel, reading, crocheting, knitting, watching TV, taking care of my farms, cafe, island, amusement park, aquariums, and sweets shop on Facebook --oh yeah, I keep up with old friends on there too --we all farm together, steal things from each other's islands and aquariums and visit each other's cafe's and amusement parks -- and sleep. So you see, exercising can get pretty far down the list --and that's before attempting to clean my home --which I also hate, but that's for another blog.

So I am getting back into the habit of "making exercise a priority." Bleh. I managed to go for 30 minutes on the elliptical machine on Tuesday while watching a recorded episode of ""Myth Busters." Yesterday, I did a lot of housecleaning and found that "house cleaning: heavy" was an exercise option on SparkPeople. yay. I put down 30 minutes. Today I forced myself to do another 30 minutes on the elliptical machine while watching "Terminator: Salvation" with my son. Next week, I plan on getting back into my original routine of cardio MWF and strength training T,TH. Originally, I was doing strength training on Saturdays too. I might wait on that for now.

    Kudos for starting again. I too have started this week to get back to exercise. I did 30 minutes of heavy housework as well. Amazing how going up and down steps so many times can get your heart pumping and your body sweating!

    I wish I had an elliptical at home. I have to go to the gym which of course gives me yet another excuse to overcome. Baby steps. That's all I keep thinking is baby steps.

    Good luck!
