I Love Exercise!



Recommended Posts

Just finished my 2nd spin class and I had forgotten how much fun exercise is. I was out of breath, dripping sweat (I love to sweat) with legs of Jello, but I burned 400 calories in 40 minutes and I had an endorphin high that makes the finest pot look like so much crab grass. I feel really good. I can hardly wait until I can get the road bike and the hiking boots out. I may just have to take the family out snow shoeing this week end.

I wish I was like that. I don't really enjoy exercise, I did for a while after surgery, but the luster faded. I do enjoy walking my pooches, but that is about it. However, walking my dog can be considered exercise, rather having my freight train of a dog walk me.

Once you find the right exsersize for yourself you will learn to love it also. I love going to my zumba classes. They are sooooo much fun and I burn about 750 calories per class. I even do 2 classes a day (2hours) at times cause I just don't want them to end!

Me too! The bug really gets you :) I went spinning today too and with my other workouts burned over 1000 calories at the gym. It sets me up for a healthy day.

Oh and LuuLuu, please don't look at this as a slam against your post. I understand totally where you are coming from. I have a treadmill, a stationary bike and a complete weight machine set up in my basement and I HATE using them. I trick myself to use the treadmill by putting my laptop on the arms and playing Civilization 5 for an hour as I walk.

But hiking and biking really rock my world...

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
