There is nothing I hate worse then boring exercise!
I like to exercise. Now getting up really early to do just that. I am not a fan of. I guess it is a good thing I don't have to.
But whether it be early morning or mid afternoon. The hardest part is making the decision to do it.
I have everything I need to have a good workout. I even have a room devoted to it.
I have a Total Gym which I don't and never have used, treadmill, and also some free weights and some other things like shake bars. So I got it all. I got the stuff for working my muscles and for cardio.
Still I am looking for something even different..
I have ALWAYS wanted to be a runner. But it is just not for me. I have many hip,knee and ankle issues that would only be aggravated by running. I am not saying never. Just not right now at this weight.
The next best thing. Hiking!!!
I am not talking about a leisurely stroll..I am talking about actually hiking.
I know better then to start off doing something that I am not conditioned to do. So I will start off slow.
But I have a goal..I have a lot of goals and this one would be to not be huffing and puffing after climbing a small hill.
I have always wanted to be really healthy and be a semi athlete. I even have a book that I bought a few years ago that has a bunch of hiking areas in Arizona. I need to dig that out.
I am not even sure if I ever read it.
Being over weight can really hold you back in a lot of ways and I don't think that people realize that.
Especially if they have never been over weight.
Just from losing 20 pounds my body has changed so much. My outlook on life has also changed a lot.
So it really makes me wonder how I will feel when I have lost another 40 LBS?
