Welcome to Day 27 of my 2014 #Write31Days journey! If you are new here, you can read a little more about me in the sidebar. For my regular readers… only four more days left!
I’ve alluded to it in a few other posts this month, but I’ll be honest. I just don’t like exercise.
Oh sure, walking is fun. I would like to be able to run in the mornings, but I’m in a season where that is easier said than done. I really think I would enjoy running, and plan to pursue it soon.
I would continue to avoid it if the physical and mental health benefits weren’t so incredible. I can’t ignore the fact that I am getting older, and while I don’t feel old (well, some days I do!), one day I will, and I don’t want to look back and say, “I wish I had done something when I was younger.” Regret doesn’t look good on anyone.
I am currently doing a mixture of things every day. Some days, I’m doing Zumba. Yes, I feel silly (incredibly so!) dancing like a fool in my living room. However, I have taken a Zumba class in real life, and I feel less silly in the privacy of my home. This is my introvert coming out.
I recently came across an idea from fellow blogger Hannah, who does the 150 Workout. All I need to add are some hand weights!
In my post on energy boosters, I mentioned using a mini trampoline. I will pull this out from time to time and have a little fun.
We’ve tried to take a family walk every night, and will continue to do so as the weather gets cooler and the mosquitos disappear.
I really feel like the health benefits of exercise can no longer be ignored, so I’m biting the bullet and getting after it. Join me, please?!?!
What are your favorite exercise routines?
