Sunday Confessions

I hate exercise. No matter the form I have yet to find an activity that I enjoy that will help me drop these pesky pounds.

Running: In the end, I feel great, but only if I run outside on the path. Plus points for the nature I get to see, and the little league games. Cons include its the same route each time.

Swimming: Definitely worth the time, though so boring. Not much visual stimulation. All I end up doing is counting over and over. Certainly good reflection time, no pun intended. The shallow girl in me is always conscious of my highlights and the salt water/chlorine situation too.

Yoga: There is a yoga class offered at our gym but it's at 7 p.m. I am such a grandma that I don't know how or when to schedule dinner with that time slot taken. Do I then eat late, around 8:30? I can't exercise on a full stomach getting home at 6:30 by the time dinner is made. Perhaps a different location is worth it, I know people swear by it.

Gym in General: Clearly we have a relationship though are still working through a few issues.

i know you are not asking for advice, and i am in NO position to give, but that doesn't see to be stopping me! Pilates, better than Yoga imo, or break down and take a dance class at a JC, then it will be fun. At least I thought so when I was in CA. I'd do it here if it was cheap like there. I went to the gym 2x last week for the first time in ???, therefore I am qualified to be handing out this expert, exercise advice ;)

Hah, love it. I do still participate in these activities it is just so dull. The problem with classes also is that I can't seem to find any on a night that doesn't conflict with standing work events. I might just have to suck it up and continue the running and mocking little leaguers, sprinkled in with a swim here and there-when I am in between highlights of course ;)

I DO want to try Pilates though, I haven't heard one negative point about it!
