DISSING FITNESS MINUTES -
Wednesday, August 21, 2013
i guess everyone has an idea of 'how they view fitness time'. i remember when i went to yoga and pilates classes before they were popular, then training and working out at the gym where the comments were 'oh they are ok for keeping limber but they are NOT EXERCISE'!
i did step classes for 18 years - never missed a thursday night and was told to put that in the same category as dancing - NICE BUT NOT REAL EXERCISE.
then i hear - any movement is good - just move your body.
last year i remember asking all you sparkers if you felt raking leaves, gardening, and yard work in general was exercise - most of you who commented said yes. i asked cause there had been a program on TV about fitness - and that type of work along with housework, and standing on your feet cooking for hours , and walking around shopping WAS NICE MOVEMENT BUT NOT EXERCISE.!!!
so all my mall walks - and my window shopping - groceries - walking for the mail - and the above noted stuff - I HAVE NEVER entered in my fitness minutes -
i just dissed it . one fitness person even went so far as to say to me - if you were exercising properly in a way that counted - you would have lost more weight by now!
so let's have a poll - along with any comments you want to make about this subject - just end your contribution with a YEAH or NO -
thanks for your input BB
