A Gym Rat I Am Not

I’m not going to lie, I hate exercising. I like dancing, walking and the like but when it is the sole purpose of exercising, I don’t like it one little bit. I hate it when I start, despise it in the middle and loath it at the end only thankful for finally being done with it.

But after I have completed the workout, I feel good. I feel proud of myself for finishing the entire hour and thank the good Lord I am done with it for the day. And that feeling continues on through the rest of the day. In addition, my entire body feels better and even with the aches and pains that come with exercising aging bones (I’m going to be 32 this year! OMG) it’s a good pain if that makes any sense.

Am I looking forward to the hour workout tomorrow? Hell no! Would I rather be able to lose weight by sitting on my ass, watching movies and eating chocolate? Hell yes! Is that going to happen? Unfortunately no so that means I have to keep exercising in order to get rid of the 10 pounds I have gained these past few months plus an additional 10 to 20 pounds to get to my goal weight of 135 to 140 pounds.

    This is how I used to feel until I discovered spinning. I looooooove spinning and now I love, by extension, biking. I think exercising is all about finding something that works for you. Maybe go for long walks in places you love if you like doing that? Or go out dancing if you enjoy that? I’m sure you’ll figure out something. 🙂
