A Love Hate Relationship

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

I started going to Cross Fit classes a few months ago. I still swim 3-4 times a week. I work to get 10,000 steps on my Fitbit everyday. Cross Fit is really tough and I am one of the oldest and heaviest in the class. The instructor is very good about adapting the workouts for me so that I can do them. I love the rowing machines. Even when I was in elementary school I could not do a chin up or climb a rope. Now I am doing a very modified pull up. I confess sometimes I kind of dislike going to "the box" to workout but once I am there I am so glad I went. I will not quit.....

    Good for you. Quitting is not a good option. It is what got us all where we are in the first place. I can't do a chinup of any kind so I envy you!!

    Good for you! The important part is knowing that you won't quit, so you've got this covered!

    I also have the LOVE/HATE relationship with any kind of exercise, unless it has something to do with things outside. I can hoe, and rake and the garden and love it, and that is exercise, I can take the fur babies for a mile walk and enjoy it, but I don't look at that as exercise, I jjust need to get more creative.

    I understand the love/hate relationship. I have that with swimming. I signed up for a sprint triathlon and I seriously have not swam laps since high school and now I'm back in the pool. I feel good once I've done it, but I kind of dread it.
