My hurdles and the quest to overcome them

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Getting rid of those extra pounds is difficult or so it seems to be for me. I have a very bad habit of giving up just when I must not. After much thought and going through experiences of several other people I realized I am not alone. I hate exercising. After the first two weeks of repeating squats, lunges or kick boxing moves during cardio, I feel like a machine. It is not interesting anymore. Once the novelty wears off, I am off the track in no time and soon the pounds come back again.
But recently I realized something, my love for dancing. Not some choreographed work out routine but dancing from heart. I love bollywood music and dancing to it. It is relaxing, fun and feels so natural. Since I do not like exercising, I have taken up walking instead along-with keeping a check on amount of calories taken during the day. So far it seems to be working and I need to make sure that I stay on track and do not give up.

    You are on track to figuring this out. Doing the same thing over and over that you didn't enjoy in the first place is torture! If you like to walk I can guarantee you'll do that with regularity and that's what's needed. Dancing around? Also great exercise. Start there and work it! emoticon
