We all know that it is possible to lose (SOME) weight without exercising... In fact... I just lost 4.5 pounds last week without walking, or jogging or lifting weights. The sad truth is, exercise is not only a great weight loss tool, but it’s GOOD for you… Imagine that.I’m full of excuse as to why I don’t exercise.I’m too lazy (Nope, not ready to admit that just yet) tired, it’s too late, the gym is too far, it’s too cold/hot…The list could go on and on and on…Trust me…I could name off about 10 more reasons as to why I don’t exercise, but I’ll spare myself the embarrassment.
I actuallyLOVE the way exercising makes me feel afterwards.I love the energy.I love the accomplished feeling I get after I’m done… So WHY is it so hard to just get up and do something?Anything...A walk…A jog... Jumping Jacks… Crunches.Why do I have problems doing the things I know I will benefit from? I drive myself crazy.Exercise and weight loss should come hand in hand.I know this.I know it’s good for me.I know it will only help me.I know I’m just making lame excuses, and I know no one is going to do it for me. I know that if I want to better myself, I have to do it on my own.I can’t depend on anyone else.Sad, but true.
I’ve been thinking about buying myself a treadmill. The one I have doesn’t like me and if I even think of running (or even jogging) I have to hold on for dear life because it will try to throw me off…Evil…That’s what it is. I’m trying to weigh my options though.I pay $20 dollars a month for a gym membership that I don’t use. (Me and working out in front of people is a whole ‘nother topic that I’ll have to get into at a later date.)I keep trying to make myself believe that if I had a treadmill that actually worked, that I would actually get on it and exercise for a change. So…I’m thinking… I’ll cancel my gym membership.Spend the $600 dollars on a new treadmill and maybe I’ll get my monies worth.Decisions, decisions.I’d sure hate to let $600 go down the drain because I’m too “tired” to walk into the room and turn it on.
I know one thing is for sure…I have to start moving my booty.Got to! No more excuses!My health has to come first from now on… Me and exercise will be liketwo peas in a podstarting tomorrow... Because I really am too tired to start right now. J
