Day 32 - Exercise

Ok...I guess you can officially say this is my first week of exercise while I've been on the WW plan. I have a confession...I HATE exercise. The thought of it makes me out of breath. But I know it's just one of those things I have to do while I'm on this journey to be successful. So I started Sunday with a two mile walk, and have woke up early three times so far this week to get on the elliptical. And you know what...it hasn't been so bad. Now, I'm the same person who just admitted to hating exercise. But let me tell ya...I also hate waking up early. So waking up and exercise usually isn't an option for me.

Let me tell you what's different this time. I REALLY WANT to lose weight and get healthy. There's something "different" about this journey...I've been saying that all along. So instead of being all negative about waking up early and exercising, I really don't mind so much. I certainly FEEL better after it's done, and I feel better about myself because I know I'm making a positive change in my life. And like another blogger I was reading said yesterday, it's all about your attitude. I don't want to be one of those people who only exercises because they have to. I want to be one of those people who LOVE to exercise because how it makes my body look and feel.

Tomorrow is my town's mile long yard sale (it's really about 50+ miles long) and it runs along the highway I live on. I plan on participating in the yard sale, but at some point I'm gonna make my husband take over so I can walk up and down the highway and get some activity in (and maybe even some shopping!).

Hi Hollie, thanks for the blog comment.

I too hated exercise until "this time" (I have done this many times prior to "this time") and something just clicked in my head and I'm so thankful that I am active and that I enjoy it. It sounds like you're on your way there too, and that's great! It will improve your life in ways you can't begin to imagine yet.
