Im addicted

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Finally after being here for a little over a year on and off I found that i can not only like but become addicted to exercise. ME?? really!! I decided when i was reading the Spark book that I needed to add exercise to my goals. I added 10 mins- three times a week and pretty much laughed when I added it knowing i have never found one thing about exercise that i liked. I HATE to sweat, I HATE getting up in the morning, and I HATE having other people watch what i am doing. but on Tuesday of this week I decided to get my butt out of bed at 7:00am and put in a DVD that had been collecting dust on my shelf. It was a Walk away the Pounds DVD with 1 mile, 2 mile and 3 mile walks on it. I figured if i did 1 mile three times a week all would be good. However to my surprise after 2 days of getting up and walking the mile I wanted more so on Thursday I decided I was going to do the 2 mile walk and I got up not only thursday and friday but today too and I felt AMAZING!! not only that but decided to get in little bouts of more exercise by everytime i have to go to the bathroom ( which lets face it ends up being a lot when we are drinking water) i do jumping jacks it feels so good :) and the more exercising i do the more water i drink WOOHOO! so I guess this has to be a win-win situation....and i am finally LOVING to i am going to look for an exercise bike and maybe a new DVD to switch things up....guess what??? i think I'm ADDICTED......

    WATP dvd's seem to help me too. They are always just enough to make me feel like I'm doing something but not enough to make me dread doing them all together. Good for you! I'm still trying to fall in love with exercise.

    It's not often that we can say an addiction is a good thing. Congratulations on finding yours. Like you, I hate to sweat, etc., but am finding that I like the feeling I get once I've completed a good workout. Small steps will lead to big change. Continued good luck to you . . .

    Yay for you! I have found that getting up early to exercise makes your whole day just BETTER!
