I really do not care much for exercise right now....I know it is what I have to do to get back to a more comfortable me, but I am not enjoying my workouts right now. Not to say that I have any intention of stopping, because I don't. I know that pushing myself hard today and in the weeks to come will lead to my ability to do the activities that I used to enjoy...like hiking. Last summer I didn't go out hiking at all and wanted to buy a canoe so I could paddle...but I was so heavy and uncomfortable with just daily activity that I knew there was no way I could enjoy the things I wanted to do. So, my goal this winter is to lose enough weight and get in better cardiovascular shape so that come spring, I can start jogging outside (which I don't hate as much as the treadmill) and Hike, Bike, and yes...maybe even canoe!
But, for now...I have to deal with tight cramping calves and shins, and hour-long sessions on the treadmill.
