Desire to Exercise

Friday, February 22, 2013

I have mentioned before that I've always want to find time to exercise. When circumstances are that I can't exercise, I'm miserable. I need to take walk, jog or ride a bike. I need to move. Housework isn't enough. If I can't get out to exercise, I'll do exercise video, pace or even jog in place.

I think people that love to exercise will find a way to do it. I think people that hate it will make excuses not to. I think we tolerate exercise differently. I don't like to be sweat covered. I like moderate exercise. I like exercise that I can sustain for an hour or more. I don't mind high impact as long as it's part of a less vigorous routine. I think our likes and dislikes about exercise varies as much as any other characteristic.

    I find ways to exercise also on an almost daily basis. Good blog.

    Boy, was this a worth while blog, it holds a mirror up to oneself and sees what manner of person I am.. oh, AND yea, I don't like my reflection... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm going to keep reading your blogs because where the mind goes the man follows and if I focus on how you think, maybe it will rub off on me... emoticon

    I also have always liked exercise. That had both good and bad results. Good obviously because I was quite fit. Bad because it obscured the enormous amount of food I was eating. I know overeating isn't your problem.
    In any case, the best exercise is the one you enjoy and are likely to continue.
    That's a very interesting article, especially the part about overdoing it based on your current capacity. I know that if I hurt, it won't be enjoyable. That's why I'm the queen of gradualism.

    I keep telling myself its all in the set of my mind. I hate it, I know why I should do it, but but but.. so you are right... people who hate it, like me, will always be looking for an excuse to NOT exercise. I must do it, I must, I must, maybe I can be the mad hatter and run around enough to get some? you think: ? Good luck to both of us!
