Well, that’s true now…but it wasn’t always. These days I love working out and it’s become part of my daily routine. If you’d have asked me 3 years ago, not so much. I used to be the girl who would circle the parking lot for 15 minutes just to get the closer parking spot so I wouldn’t have to walk so far. People change. We’re kind of cool like that!
So what happened to me? How did I become this exercise-loving diva? Here’s my secret…I found something I loved! I know what you’re thinking…Mary, it’s exercise…I’m not going to love it. And you know what? Maybe that’s true, but sometimes we have to fake it till we make it…for our own good! When I first joined the YMCA, I found Zumba…I stood in the back of the gym and couldn’t make it through the entire class, certainly couldn’t perform all the moves full out, definitely felt like I was gonna pass out. But…I kept going back for more! The atmosphere, the people, the music…I fell in love. I’m still a member today, and in fact, I’m teaching that class now! (That whole people change thing–pretty awesome!)
Start small…you don’t need to be at the gym for three hours! Shoot, you don’t even need to go to the gym! Take a walk, ride a bike, do a video! The 21 day fix videos are 30 minutes long and have the lovely Kat to look at for modifications. I’m convinced Kat and I would be besties if we knew each other in real life!
My advice…pick something…do it…and then do it again….and again and again and again! Better yet, convince a friend to do it with you! All you need is 30 minutes…it’ll be over before your body even realizes what you’re doing!
A little funny….
