I've been battling this desire to not exercise. I've thought about it and come up with a few reasons why I don't want to do it right now.
1~I have to do it inside my house and sometimes that sucks
2~Sometimes I kick my kids while I do it
3~My kids are getting up at 0630 and that is before I get up
4~I'm bored with it
5~We've been having a lot of rain which means gray skies and little sun.
6~I need lots of sun to function (I know this because of living in two countries where I almost stopped functioning and went into a depression because of the lack of sun.)
7~It takes so much effort to do it with two small kids and I'm getting a big tired of that.
8~Walking to the track with them is torture because I'm either pushing 80 pounds of kids, or trying to get them to keep up with me
9~At the time I want to exercise the two neighborhood centers closest are full of exercising women which means no space for me.
10~For some reason Matt won't stay home until 0930 so that I can exercise and take a shower. Wonder why....
I do like it, but the effort to do it is almost the same effort I make to exercise. I did just get a new Billy Blanks Taebo DVD. I did it yesterday, but I tell you, I just am not coordinated enough. I'll have to do it every day for more than a week to really get it down. Luckily, this one is longer than my other ones. I know people that are addicted to it, that love the endorphins from exercising. I just don't feel any of that. Even after playing a basketball game. So, maybe I'll take the rest of the week off and start fresh on Monday. I really think it has a lot to do with the lack of sun right now. And we're not supposed to get any until tomorrow. And then not again for a few more days. Sigh....
So, I'm going to start again on Monday, and hopefully it will be better. And I think I'll make cookies today to wallow in my lack of exercising. Yum.
Update: My friend Rachel read my post today (after she had called and asked if i wanted to go with her to her neighborhood center and exercise. which I ended up doing) and did the exact opposite of my post. You can read it here.
