I love to bake and I love to eat maybe that's why I have the worst time losing weight and maybe why it always seems to wait ;) It seems I've made exercuses for years.
What's your exercuse?
In the past mine has always been, "I don't have the time." And, I know everyone has 24 hours but working moms pack a whole lot of priorities into those meager hours. I didn't start working out seriously until my kids went off to college. Now, I've taken back up running. I used to love to run--when I was young but for about 20 years it was all about the kids.
When my hubby and I started running again, almost one year ago, we'd run a block--walk a block. Now, I've been training for a half-marathon for about 8 months. I was really thinking I was getting in shape. Yeah, right.
Friday I took the day off from work and went and played tennis with my hubby. In fact, our first date back in 1979 was playing tennis at UofO. I even taught tennis back in college to help pay my tuition. So, I could play all day long and never get tired...at least that's the way I remember it ;)
BUT, after playing 5 games (not five sets--a big difference) with my hubby on Friday, I was worn out. I'm still sore a couple of days later. I thought I was getting in good shape... I was wrong. I'm getting to be a decent runner but I obviously need to mix things up a whole lot more to work out other areas of my body. In fact, I didn't run Friday or Saturday...(here's my new exercuse) I was just too sore.
So, what's your exercuse? Are you training for anything or making excuses not to go out and 'just do it'?
