    Do You Enjoy Exercise?

    Do you actually enjoy exercise? I used to dislike it but once I got into the habit I started to enjoy it more. After I have the lap band surgery I hope to be able to do more types of exercise without so much fear of injury.

    I do enjoy exercising once I'm actually doing it, but I have a very hard time getting motivated. I always feel better after I get up and move around, so I'm not sure why I seem to have a mental block about it.

    I used to enjoy exercise when I was younger. Not anymore because I always find myself feeling very short of breath! It is also very tiring especially since I've gained a lot of weight!

    I do enjoy walking. It's the only thing that can help make my day!

    Re: Do You Enjoy Exercise?

    I absolutely HATED the idea of exercising. The gym revolts me and I don't like treadmils or exercise bikes at all. What I love is being able to track incidental exercise through each day. I found an app that lets me enter in whatever activity I do through each day, like making the bed, or sweeping the floor, or hanging laundry - and it adds up how many calories you burn by doing these things. It actually motivated me to park the car away from the mall doors and walk a bit further just so I could enter in a few extra minutes of walking and my house has never been cleaner.

    It works just for the additional motivation to get your body moving.

    I love the thought of it and the idea of losing weight but just working out and trimming my diet has not been enough for me. Sitting at a desk job does not help either but I am working in a field that I love so changing jobs is not an option.

    For me the problem is actually getting up off of my butt and doing something. Once I start though, I feel great! I love how I feel after a good walk with my son. I just wish that I could stay motivated. I have started and stopped exercise programs more times than I can count. Its sad really.

    Re: Do You Enjoy Exercise?

    Exercise is definitely not my favorite thing to do. The most that I do exercise is when I am chasing after my son or wearing him in a baby wrap on my back while I do laundry. I think I am just too lazy to actually start. That's going to have to be something that I change before I can actually get my band. My doctor won't do it if I don't have an exercise plan in place. Maybe once it gets warmer I will start taking my son for walks. He loves being outside!

    Absolutely not! All kidding aside, I have yet to find a method of exercise that didn't bore me to tears. The only thing that is semi tolerable has been using the weight machines at the gym. All of the cardio machines that I have tried have been awful. I am not coordinated enough to use the elliptical and I find walking on a treadmill to be quite dull. I am getting ready to start one of the Zumba classes that my gym offers though. My sister thinks that it is the greatest kind of exercise ever so I though I would give it a go.

    I am trying to get motivated about working out but the first five minutes always seem to be bad. I have noticed with a great coach as well as extra support it is possible even if it stretches my back strength to the limits.

    I enjoy my exercise everyday. I do walk and running and both are my favorite exercises. I feel good and enjoy a lot during my exercises.
