If someone can tell me how they made Strength Training fun, I would love to hear it!!!

Strength training has always been my trouble area. I admit I have a hard time sticking with it. Cardio has never been a problem, I love biking and walking and they never get boring to me.

But how do I make crunches or push ups fun??? Lately, I have been trying to "mix it up" to keep it interesting, and my new dvd helps...

Plus I made my Fit n Fun team a challenge that focuses in on "Making Each Day Count" and for me that means getting in at least 10 minutes of Strength Training, which really hasn't been that bad. Now sticking with it consistently will be my personal challenge.

    I don't love my strength workouts, but I also don't hate them. I'm all about possibilities. By doing my strength exercises, I may be able to do something new. I enjoy changing my routine up some (just so I don't get in a rut) and counting reps and observing what my muscles do in each step of the exercise. It is heartening that my muscles can do more than they could before. I could be all disappointed because it is a very slow process for me because of some health issues. I am grateful that I am able to do it at all and celebrate each little improvement. I managed all my reps in decent form - Yay! I added another pound or more reps or whatever - Yay! I felt like crud and did my workout anyway - Yay! Every step forward is worth being happy over.

    Also, it's really just a short time in my whole day so toughing it some days is the best I can do.

    Sorry, no magic answer here.
