I’ve said many times before that I am not a fan of the exercise…and by that I mean pretty much any type of exercise. I don’t mind an occasional walk, but if you ask me to do something everyday that will benefit my weight, health, and heart that doesn’t include sitting in front of the computer drinking wine? I’m probably not going to be interested.
My friend Poppy over at Funny or Snot ran a marathon over the weekend. A frickin’ marathon! And she ran it! I have considered walking a marathon, which while still quite a challenge just doesn’t seem as daunting as actually running 26.2 miles.
So I decided, much like I did last year (and failed I might add) that I need to lose those 15 lbs. of baby weight I’m still lugging around. I tried Alli, but the side effects were well, let’s just say kind of gross. I tried the Fat Belly Diet, but you might remember the picture above and understand why I failed. I even thought about buying a BOB jogging stroller…but who am I kidding? I’m too lazy and easily flustered to try to take 3 toddlers on a walk!
But I’ve actually lost 10 lbs! Jason and I started taking OxyElite Pro and all I have to say is WHOA! Total appetite suppressant and actually gives me the energy I need to get off my ass and do something!
I also bought the Wii Fit and I’m having a blast with it…and *bonus*…it doesn’t feel like exercise to me at all!
But I’m also thinking I need something more. Some cardio. Something I can do when the kids are sleeping. So I thought maybe I should get an exercise bike. Not a cheesy little one…a gym quality stationary bike. But holy crap are those things expensive! So maybe a recumbent exercise bike or one of those Keiser bikes? But they’re pretty expensive too.
Maybe a treadmill? Also pricey. The Wii Fit does have an activity that allows me to run in place, but it’s not quite the same. Maybe an exercise video or two? Some yoga or pilates? Both are considered cardio workouts, right?
I don’t know, but I know to lose this last 5 lbs. or so I need to do something other than just not shoving food in my mouth. I’d really like to be down to my goal weight before BlogHer in August!
What’s your favorite workout activity? Do you have any advice or suggestions for someone that hates to exercise?
