I'm tired so it's possible this won't make a lick of sense.
Also, I will now be using phrases like "won't make a lick of sense." Because I am now your grandmother (my grandmother spoke Chinese and would never have used that phrase).
ANYWAY, visit me on twitter, blah blah blah now to answer the Vox QOtD:
Does anyone really LIKE to exercise? Really? Not me. Sure, they tell you to do activities that you enjoy but I enjoy sitting. Sitting, drinking tea and reading a book with some video games and movies on the side. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be one of those exercise regimines (why does that not look right? Should there be more "e"s?) that are endorsed by the fitness people.
My dislike of exercise would be easy to blame on my horrible gym teacher(s) which may or may not have caused my subsequent dislike of team sports or athletics but I'm a grown ass woman. I don't exercise because I don't exercise. There are things I like to do and I just don't do them because there are times when it just seems like too much damn trouble.
The problem is that in order to have enough energy to work out, I need to start working out. It's a stupid catch-22 that has caused me to buy a jump rope. I will be jumping rope on my road to fitness. I expect the hula hoop may make a return in the near future. If I can find one for an adult.
I tried hot yoga last Thursday but I don't think the yoga place I went to was meant for me. The lead felt more like a drill sergeant than a yoga instructor and it was freaking hot.
I know it's in the name but I think I was in there for way too long. The end result included vomiting. Which was my own damn fault. Not enough water before the class.
The other thing is that my work schedule is quite strange right now. It's not bad but it's strange. It's been a huge adjustment to my lifestyle. And now I'm just rambling. Will you notice that I'm rambling? Make a note in the comments.
What I'm working on now is daily (short) bits of exercise in order to help me incorporate it in to my day. Really, I can't break out 10 minutes to jump rope or use the treadmill? That's too lame, even for me. And I don't need someone coming here to say "Oh, but 10 minutes doesn't do anything" because you can piss off. 10 minutes of working out is better than none at all and I'm going to increase it but I know, for me, if I start with the intention of doing 30 minutes every day, I will not only fail but fail HARD.
Look at me! I'm writing a blog post while tired (I'm at work right now), rambling about exercise and telling people who may read this to piss off. Aren't you happy to have me back?
