Lazy and having the courage to finally admit it!

Sunday, January 23, 2011

Today, I have finally faced the real truth and that is I am just plain lazy when it comes to exercise!! It's really ridiculous because I can run around driving the kids here, there and everywhere, being a Girl Scout Leader, working full time, cleaning the house, coooking, doing laundry, taking care of hubby, taking care of my disabled dad, etc...

SO why can't I get off the couch or off my chair staring at the computer and just go for a walk??

L A Z Y!! That's what it is... or I am just burned out from doing the above... lol

Well the bottom line is I have to do all of the things above, so I do them. For some reason I have never looked at walking/exercise as something I have to do, but rather something that I should do, but don't wanna!!

Thank God for SparkPeople. I was looking at all of the Spark Teams and saw the Leslie Sansone Walking team and realized that I have owned one of her dvd's for like 5 years and have used it maybe once a year. Well, I just went downstairs and dusted it off and guess what? Tomorrow morning , I am gonna start the day with Walking Off The Pounds and attempt to do it every day, as I just joined that Spark Team.

I am going to add that walking dvd to my "TO DO" list and check it off at the end of the day like I do all of the above tasks.

Wish me luck!!

    you are definitely not LAZY! haha - did you take a look at that quick list you wrote out, just at the top of your head, imagine if you really thought about all the things you do in your schedule, no wonder you want a break in front of your computer. you are just not selfish enough to make time for what you need vs what you feel you need to do for everyone else. I'm the same way. I easily put myself last on the list of people who need to be taken care of, pretty much all the time. Normally it's cool with me, but being on sparkpeople makes me realize that I do need to shuffle things around for more me time. I know a lot of people schedule their exercise in to their day like an appointment to make sure that they don't miss a workout, I'm not there yet, but it's a suggestion I'll be looking into to shortly. I LOVE the walk away the pounds series!! (FYI my local Target and amazon.com has some good deals right now if you want to expand your library.) It's what I use to exercise like, 80% of the time. Good luck with that! Just keep walking, it'll add up!!

    The walking tape is good. It sounds like you have a busy schedule. Don't forget that three ten minute segments of exercise are just as effective and continuous 30 mins. Cleaning the house, playing with the kids count too. It doesn't matter how we get our exercise as long as we're active 30 mins a day.

    My vote would be for burned out! But, you are tackling this issue and prioritzing yourself by adding the walk to the "to Do" list.......awesome plan!
