I Just Can't Do It!

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

After my 2-day hiking weekend last weekend I decided that this week I would do no workouts whatsoever. With the 4th of July breaking up the week I thought this would be the perfect week to be lazy.

Well, tonight I found myself at the gym.
I just cannot NOT work out. It's impossible!
Being active in that way adds so much quality to my life and I realize it truly has become part of who I am.

For those of you who are struggling with this concept, who are struggling getting even your daily 10 minutes in, be patient. But at the same time, consider your choices. Hate the treadmill, go for a run instead. Hate running, go for a swim. Hate swimming, go for a bike ride. Hate bike riding, do some yoga or Pilates. Hate that go Zumba. Hate Zumba, play soccer. You get the idea.

Trick is to find yours. Mix it up and make it fun.

It'll grow on you, I promise.

Have a wonderful 4th y'all.

    Wise head on young shoulders - you are so right!

We all have our 'thing' and its just a case of discovering it - so long as we keep trying all the different things available we find it!

    You are absolutely right. Exercise grows on you until you just gotta do it! Good for you. That is definitely a success. -Marsha

    How cool is this? I was prepared to jump in with lots of encouragement but you turned the tables on me!!!

You are right -- there's always something we can do! Play with the kids, take the dog for a walk, vaccuum! Activity lurks everywhere!!!!

    Happy Independence day! emoticon .
yes, like you I was planning on NOT working out this week at all. We are up in Northern Minnesota for the week, and I was just going to have a vacation from it all. However, the first thing I did this morning was put on my running clothes. It actually frightens me a bit how automatic it was. emoticon

    I feel the same way about working out. I HAVE to do it because I love it so much! I've found workouts that I love and I actually look forward to them everyday.

    I am glad that you like exercising. Even at a healthy weight, it is good to be active for your health. I am maintaining my weight and still exercising. I think it's important to find something you like to do.
