A) I'm lazy
B) I hate working out
C) I'm lazy
D) Did I mention I HATE working out???
I've been working out pretty regularly for about two months now. Unfortunately, the past couple weeks I've been busy in the evenings so my workouts were really infrequent, but I made the conscious decision to not let that stop me!
Am I not the most athletic person you have ever seen??
Here is my problem with working out. I just flat out HATE it! I hate gyms.They're always too expensive and I hate people watching me while I look like a freak pretending to know what I'm doing. And I hate sweating. It drives me insane.
I work out in the evenings after work and sometimes, ok all the time, I'm exhausted. Chasing around eight toddlers, breaking up fights (yes, my kids fight like it's their job), and tending to every child's need is EXHAUSTING! Most of the time, I just want to go home, lay on the couch, and never get up! This really puts a damper on my motivation!
Some people say "Oh I love the way I feel when I'm running. I feel like I'm doing something so great for my body." Let's be honest here people, do you really love feeling like you're dying?!?
Ok, I am a bit dramatic about this whole working out deal, that's just me!
But, as much as I hate running, that's my workout of choice (ironic, huh?). Now, I'm not one of those marathon runners! Three miles, TOPS! This week, I started running at a park near my house. They have a trail that is 2.8 miles, and that's good enough for me! One day I'll build up enough endurance to be able to run without wanting to collapse at the end.
After running, I do 2 ten minute workouts targeting specific body parts. For example, yesterday I did arms and butt and today I will do abs and legs. I use these nifty little iPhone apps for these workouts:
I use my iPhone for EVERYTHNG!
I'm not a crazy, obsessed fitness guru, but I think it is important to take care of your body. I haven't done the best job at doing so in the past, but it's never too late! Nothing feels better than knowing that you're taking care of yourself.
What is your favorite workout?
