I hate exercise. I admit it. However, I don't mind moving. I'll go for a walk, or take extra trips up and down the stairs when doing laundry, park further away from the store, take the stairs instead of the elevator, stuff like that. I even like riding my bike and playing games on the Wii. I just don't like organized, planned out "exercise".
We have a rec room at my work, and today I went down there with a friend and we played on the Wii (bowling) and then played some (actual, not virtual) ping pong. It was really fun!! I'm sure I didn't burn a lot of calories, but I had a good time and was up and moving around. My job is very sedentary, so any little bit helps. Yesterday I went out for my afternoon break and walked several laps around our parking garage while listening to my audiobook. I wish I loved exercise, I really do. But you can't make yourself love something if you just don't, no matter how hard you try.
Today it dawned on me that I am only 20 pounds from the high end of my "normal" weight on all the charts. That makes me pretty happy! I also went to Target during lunch and wandered around for a while. While I was there I strolled through the swimsuit section and it was the first time in my life that I remember thinking that nobody was looking at me and judging (in my mind anyway) that I was simply too big and fat to even be browsing in the regular size swimsuits! I didn't find any that grabbed my attention, but I enjoyed looking none the less.
I am pretty hungry this afternoon so I have to keep my head about me when choosing my dinner tonight. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
