I am sadly not one of those people that loves to exercise. I wish I was! I admire people that have an innate enjoyment of exercise. I exercise mostly because I want to take care of my body and I love to eat. I know it's important to have a healthy view of food and exercise.
My husband returned from a couple months away last April and I haven't really worked out since. Life has gotten away from me. But, I know it's time. My kids are doing more work for me--thanks to their new chores and me holding them accountable. That means less exercise for me. A good friend had warned me that I should beware of this and not let the weight creep up on me. Actually, she didn't warn me. She shared her experience with me and I took note! I logged it in my brain.
So, the trick for me is finding motivation. I do about 5-7 loads of laundry a week for the 5 people in our house. My plan is to fold one load while I start my Walk Away the Pounds video. By the time, I'm done with a load I'm 10 minutes into it (all the warm up time that doesn't require my arms, only my legs and walking/kicks). So, it feels like I'm not wasting my time and I've already made it a significant way through the 30 minutes I need to do.
So, far I'm 2 days, 2 loads, and 2 workouts into it ;)
