Exercise to me is an evil thing invented to torture people. The first time I lost my weight, when I was young, single and had all the time in the world, I exercised. Every stinking day. I was hard core. My tummy was flat. I dared anyone to find one dimple in my thighs. Okay I didn't really. But when moms came to me at WW, and I was their Leader, and they would say, "I just don't have time to exercise." Well, I was sooo pathetic. I thought--didn't say--it's about making time. I have to say, I do not like the taste of crow! So how do we get exercise?
I have piles of dvd's and video tapes with dust on them. I have a treadmill with lots of dust and dryer lint. Those things are probably not going to happen. I think it would be grand to join a gym, but would I really use it? Probably not. So what do you do??? You INVENT ways to exercise.
Who says you have to drive to pick the kids up from school? If school is close enough and it is not freezing or blistering hot...walk. Got a little one? Stroller, wagon, or if they are old enough bike. This never would have occurred to me back then. It's not about EXERCISE! That's such a dirty word anyway! It's about movement. Going up the stairs instead of sending your kids--which I do NOT do! Even playing in the snow with your kids is exercise! Who knew?
