All exercise but especially weight training

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

Yoga... it's hard for me to slow down, but it feels like a true workout to me, since I am more used to running and biking.

I think about this a lot. Sometimes the exercise (no matter what it is) is hard. It hurts. I want to quit. But it feels so good when I'm done that I push myself to finish. That is the feeling I chase.

Almost everything except walking, running and hiking. :) But I'm always really happy after I do some rowing. I love it, and it makes me feel good and accomplished, and it's still always a bear to get started.

I also have a weird mental block with pushups. My brain is still half convinced that I can't do a single one and doesn't want to try and fail. So when I do get on the floor and do ten, it's like ... whoa. Every time.

some mornings I just don't want to hit the BowFlex

lots of times when I go for a run - I rarely hit 'the zone' so I just have to focus on the tunes or the scenery or play mind games to keep running

I love to swim, but I usually feel like giving up around lap 13. If I push through for a bit, it's fine. I do all 72 anyhow.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

ST in general. I love what it does to my body, and I never regret it when I'm done, but starting is always hard for me.

you sometimes, or even often, have trouble starting; but once you begin or after you have completed it, you feel really good and glad you finished it?

For me, walking and spinning are easy for me to get motivated to do. Heavy bag, foam roller, and chores such as mowing are not quite as easy.

However, hanging abs (ab straps/ab sleeves) is the exercise I have to almost force myself to do. Once I am doing it, it really begins to feel good. When I am done (5-20 minutes), I am sweating profusely, my muscles feel pumped, I am breathing hard, and I feel really "high" because the endorphins kicked in.
