I HATE exercise! (My rant)

Tuesday, April 06, 2010


Yes, I know, I must move in order to lose weight, but oh dear God, how I dread it. I hate getting sweaty, I hate being out of breath, I hate having to have specific clothing to wear for workouts.
I get the same feeling about workout clothes that I do about the gown the OB-GYN gives you to wear. (Okay, so I'm a drama queen!).
The only reason that I am even writing this post is because I have a workout scheduled and am all dressed up for it, but I am desperately looking for a delay tactic!
Anyway, I must do it. My first week is up tomorrow and I want to have a good weigh in. If I am to be completely honest, I need to admit that my only exercise pre SparkPeople was walking to the car.
Sigh, post over.
See ya' on the sweaty side!

    I used to hate working out, too. It's that I've grown to love it, but I've learned to make the best out of it. I don't like to be ugly in public and the idea of leaving the house in lycra or spandex (gak!) made me nauseated. So, I buy cute workout clothes and running shoes, dab on some perfume and mascara, and put in some earrings. I feel better about myself, and the worst someone can think of me is that I'm vain. And so what, I just burned 300 calories! I too hate feeling sweaty, gross, and out of breath. But I found that the rowing machine is easy to use, relaxing, and that I feel more powerful than overheated when I'm done.

    I'm not saying I look forward to going to the gym, but that I don't find it as dreadful as I used to. Hopefully you'll find something that makes it better for you too! Good luck!

    I also do not like to exercise, but I do like the changes that are occurring with my body and the way my fat clothes are beginning to feel loose. Just try to keep yourself psyched up and tell yourself how good for you the exercise is. Hang in there!

    I feel that way sometimes...it is hard to continue to find fun things to do while still making your calorie burn.

    Oh I agree - so much of the time exercise is the last thing on my mind - but I found a new one that I can tolerate - and that's kickboxing in my living room with the door closed, the blinds shut and NO ONE watching.... maybe you can find one that you will eventually like too. We gotta keep moving and keep positive about it ... even when we hate it. At least you are going to do it, even if you are procrastinating. Yay to that! :)

    Yes, I know how you feel. I hate working out also. But I also know the good feeling that I get when the workout is over. I love that sense of accomplishment that I did something GOOD.

    You can DO THIS!
