…yeah lets call this a new thing since I’m kinda out of apps right now.
Working out. Yeah..About that…
Alright here’s the deal. If you know me you know I like to/have to move around A LOT. I just can’t sit still.
That being said, I HATE working out. The idea of being stuck on a treadmill for an hour makes me wanna die. I also hate the gym. I don’t like how everyone is staring at everyone else out of the corner of their eye and then if I run into someone I know and I’m looking a hot mess because I’m sorry but I am not getting dolled up to sweat my ass off I’m gonna feel like a total Josie Grossie…it’s just not my thang.
BUT I know that getting enough moderate-to-vigorous physical activity everyday is super important and so is doing weight bearing activity a few times a week SO what do I do?
I plan activities that will fulfill my MVPA needs that don’t make me feel like I am working out.
For example, on Tuesdays and Wednesdays I go to a ballet class for an hour, on Mondays and Wednesdays I might do yoga, go for a walk/run, or do a workout video. On Thursday I usually chill and on Fridays and Saturdays I’m usually bartending so I use all the walking and lifting heavy cases of beer as my physical activity for the day. Sundays are also typically rest days but I have a mini trampoline that I like to jump on while I watch TV if my body is telling me to move it…like it is right now.
Tell me, what do you do to stay active? Do you like the gym or are you more of a DIY workout person??
