Exercise at least 3 times a week, besides my regular "on my feet all day" stuff.
Okay, this is a problem. I hate - can I say "hate" - exercising. I like to go for walks, but there are no roadways to walk on. We live in a rural area, no sidewalks, barely even a shoulder on the road. I really don't want my four sons to be walking down that road, probably wandering into the traffic lane, where cars come zooommmmiiinnng over the hill at you. We can hike through our woods, but you really can't do that every day. I have a very nice treadmill, but I don't feel like using it. I have started stacking my magazines on it. The idea is that I can ONLY read magazines while on the treadmill. So, I have a stack of new, unread magazines. This is really not working. I tried using an exercise dvd and the boys laughed at me.
Here's the deal. I am on my feet most of the day. I maintain the home, homeschool four kids, help with the business, care for the critters....I just don't feel like doing anything else. When I have down time I want to be down - to lay down and read a book, check the computer, etc.
But, I know that I should be doing this. It is good for me. It is really just such a low priority, though, that when I look at the things that NEED to be done (like, at least two loads of laundry every day!) that I want to get those things done and I (rapidly) lose any interest in exercise.
I don't like this goal. But I know it ties in with Goal #1, getting back to my Lifetime Weight Watchers weight.
I was down .6 today from last week, btw. Slow and steady wins the race!
Anyway. I just don't like doing it. I could go do it right now. I should. It would require me changing pants, putting on my shoes, putting up my hair. It would also require me getting off the computer.
Okay. I can do this. I will do this.
I am off to go do this. I'll tell you tomorrow how it went.
