What? I have to exercise everyday?

Monday, May 01, 2017

Okay folks I'm not sure about you but I do not know if I could become a LLEE. That stands for Lifetime Effective Exerciser. This morning I was reading the "10 Habits of Highly Effective Exercisers by our one and only Ellen Goldman. You can read it here: www.sparkpeople.com/reso

I'm thinking to myself.. You have got to be kidding me. Exercise the rest of my life! I don't know if I could. The actual article is a very good one. There is a lot of very good information in it. For me I'm not sure if I could exercise the rest of my life. Sure I want to stay fit, but how realistic is it for me? I'm way to good at talking myself out of exercise to become an LLEE. emoticon I'm not sure. How about you? Did you read the article and what are your thoughts?

Just for kicks ~

    Defintely don't love exercise, but . . . . I do consider myself a LTEE according to that article. I do exercise in one way or another 7 days a week -- I need to for my health, so I just have to do it!

    I can see myself doing 4 - 5 times a week but not daily. I used to do 4 -5 times a week (I worked up to it) before my reset. Now I'm just waiting for my foot to finish it's healing and hurting so I can get back to it. I'll have to build up again. I do chair exercises and you really do get to a point where you look forward - if no to the exercise then to the great feeling you have for accomplishing it and the physical improvement!

    Great articles with some major points for me. Non-negotiable and don't necessarily love exercise, but do it anyway. Thanks for sharing

    I don't think I could exercise every day, either. But I used to exercise 4-6 times a week, and I'd like to get back to it because I felt so much stronger and more accomplished. The most important thing is not making "starting again" a big deal...the less time you take before you start again after you found that you've stopped, the more days you actually work out!

    I never thought I could exercise the rest of my life either. Of course now the rest of my life isn't nearly such a long time as it would have been if I had started in my twenties or thirties when I should have. LOL

    BUT....Awhile ago I challenged myself to do SOME kind of strength exercise every day for 100 days. This isn't a SparkPeople challenge - just mine. I'm on the 100 Days of Weight Loss Team and doing the book for the 4th time so I decided to add something to it. Well I'm on Day 62 and it is almost becoming a habit. I have no rules about how much time, no schedule of upper body, lower body, etc. Sometimes I do 10 minutes, on rare occasions 15, sometimes I just do one of the SparkTV videos that are 5 minutes or less. The idea has been to do something....it turns out that I kind of enjoy it; I actually feel better about myself and I can tell that I'm toning up a bit too.

    Oh, Oh! This is starting to look like the seed of a blog of my own....Thanks, Donna!

    Exercise is something we have to make a daily routine of,just like
    brushing our teeth.It takes determination and commitment!When i
    get out of that routine it takes me FOREVER to get back into that
    routine and i do mean"FOREVER"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hope you have a
    great day,week&enjoy the month of MAY! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm a several days a week exerciser. Every day seems too drastic to me. But I am committed--most of the time!
