I have always dreaded exercise. One of my goals has been to learn to enjoy it.
When I was in the Army, I ran because I had to. When I retired from the Army, I quit running, partly due to some orthopedic problems, but mostly because I hated it. I figured I'd find something else to do for exercise. But as time went by, I tried several things, but never really found anything I enjoyed.
But, dare I say it? I think I've finally found it! I've been going to a water aerobics / Aquasize class several times a week for about two months. And believe it or not, I really enjoy it. I totally surprised myself by liking it. I had to get over my worries of being seen in a swimsuit, but that didn't take long. The best part of it is that it doesn't hurt. I can run and jump in the water without my knees and feet hurting. It is amazing.
One goal met!
