I remember when the word 'exercise' and 'workout' made me cringe! That's just too much like work. So, I avoided it.
Do you do the same?
Then the weight starts compiling around your waistline and you become unhappy, or at least I did.
Some of my best friends have had the same experience.
It's not like that for me anymore because I found exercise that I enjoy, I play golf. Ever spend the day swinging the club? It's fun and an amazing workout! Helps me mentally clear my head as well. I love it.
A friend of mind swims every day. She works out in her own pool and in the winter goes to the YMCA. Swimming is fun for sure!
When you do physical activity that you enjoy, you start toning up and shedding pounds without even realizing it.
Read on to learn how to get started and find your own activity that you love.
Game Changer: Physical Activities to Fit Your Lifestyle and Keep You in Shape
If you dread exercising, you won't do it. If exercise hurts, you won't do. If fitness doesn't motivate you, you won't do it. If you don't make time, you won't do it. Get it?
Motivation is a noun that means - the general desire or willingness of someone to do something.
When you don't have desire or willingness, as I mention above, you don't do it.
Don't dread it, find something that fits your lifestyle adn that you love to do.
Working out does not have to mean spending hours at the gym or spending tons of money for a membership.
However, everyone is in the house too much lately. Get out. Take a class to be with others that help motivated you and keep you in shape (the membership cost will then be worth it).
Physical activity comes in many forms. Here's a list of ideas for you. Do your research and find something that you love.
- Shooting basketball
- Walking around the outside of your house or the block
