Never Exercising Again
Monday, May 27, 2013
Not ever again.
No more training for:
5ks, 10ks, whatever kind of race....
Nope....done. Hate it, hate the exercise. Never going to do it again.
The morning walks I take with my fiancé count?
The hula hooping I do counts?
The paddle boarding counts?
The bike riding at the metro park counts?
But those things are fun! And so I have a light bulb moment...wait for it.....
(you knew that was coming didn't you...lol) When I (emphasis on I) exercise it needs to be fun and not a chore. FUN! By jove what a concept! I have spend years exercising for a "reason", a race, a competition, weight loss....but have not lost weight nor had fun really...it's been about pushing myself, challenging myself, competing against myself and others....guess what?? NOT FUN...oh sure I loved the feeling at the end of a great workout, but the workouts themselves weren't really fun.
How did I figure this out? You would think it would be common sense....however today I was chatting on the phone and was bemoaning the fact that I had done no exercise. My fiancé said, "um, honey...we walked this morning, you hula hooped to that show and you rode your bike for ten miles....what counts as exercise if none of those do?" Hmmm....he is pretty smart!
So, no more. I am only going to do fun things....lucky for me that I love lots of things that fall under that exercise category!
