I am not a fan of exercise. l have never been a fan, I think it stems from my childhood (blame it on the childhood Danie) when my mother would make me go outside and stay outside. I looked at it as a form of punishment. We lived a skip and a jump away from the firey hot equator in Miami. It was miserably hot… ALL THE TIME. So I hate the heat. When you exercise what do you get? HOT! I hate it. So what can I do? Exercise in A/C I guess, lol. Look, regardless of what I like, I do have to maintain some form of exercise or practice of some sort that will give me some physical or mental exercise.
I am down to try lots of things and have (see evidence above of a few below)
but it doesn’t help that exercise doesn’t seem to have the type of reaction in me that some people say they have. They say how much energy they have after a workout, how great they feel or how they tried a particular exercise and it just really connected with their lives. I am waiting for a connection with something other than my bed and pillow. Exercise makes me feel crazy sleepy and hungry or with a horrible leg cramp later that day.
I always eat a decent protein or complex carb before working out, so that can’t be the problem. I drink water and previously I tried Gatorade during workouts. Since nothing really connects, I get through my workout it the best way I know how, good music and well just good music. My phone is full of workout playlists (DJ Daniedoo’s workout Jams 2005 anyone?, LOL).
All my workout bemoaning out, I have decided that I will pick up my workout and physical wellness search again. I will share these adventures on Wednesday because I am mad corny and Wellness or Workout Wednesday sounds awesome!
If you know of something I should try, I will look for it here in Atlanta. If I am going to a city with something cool I will be sure to give it a try there. New York and Miami have aqua cycling…Now that sounds cool! (I’m not joking…cycling is probably the workout I hate the least, lol)
Alright. I have a goal. I am going to try exercise and find something I connect to and try that for 3 months. That is long enough to see if I have any connection to it, and if it can be a part of my wellness routine. I look forward to sharing my adventures with you. Don’t forget to share your tips or secrets in the comments.
