Wednesday was the last class for his session. I’m not joining again. I might later- but for now this has been a thought.

here is what I learned:

Nope, still don’t like exercise.

Lunges .I can do them forever,once I find my balance.

sit ups are ok too.

eight minutes of arm circles are no fun

I hate jogging

concept of exercise buddy — I don’t like it . If I am going to exercise,I should go for me . Adding another person in it just makes things complicated. If I can’t or don’t want to go — another person being involved just make me feel guilty. And if the buddy can’t go or doesn’t want to go… I get really annoyed. I believe they have the right to flake , but I feel let down. I don’t like the mixed feeling.

I need to go find my gym card

    I didn’t see this when you first put it on. I was wondering how the exercise was going.

    For years I’ve had an on again, off again exercise program. Luckily the Navy makes me exercise every 6 mos or so. I’ve rarely had a buddy (Sig was the only location), joined gyms that I went to, and others I didn’t. Here’s what I know – do what you like and try to make it consistent. And the reality factor, it has to fit into your life. The best work out schedules I had were when I was stationed with the Marines (we met every morning at 530 or 6), the army (a really light work schedule so I went to the gym after work every day), and at Sig when we were allowed to be in PT (physical training) gear until 9 am as long as we were PTing.

    In Yokosuka and Newport, walking has become a part of my daily activities. No car in Yoko made walking a necessity and no one likes to drive in downtown Newport, particularly with the lack of free parking. Moving and the new jobs every couple of years has been detrimental to a routine workout schedule.

    Oh yeah, I hate classes. Give me a machine, nice run-walk trails (I did 5 miles yesterday), a few weights, and a pool with decent swim hours and I’m a happy camper. Sometimes I work out 2 days a week, and others it’s 5 days a week. Some days are good, some are bad. I’m a little more philosophical about it these days than about making it a job.

    I think classes break up the routine – so they aren’t all bad, unless they are too dancy.

    sadly my exercise routine ranges from 0 to 6 days a week. and 6 doesn’t happen very often

    Just don’t beat yourself up for 0 days. That’s why the philosophical view of exercise has entered into my way of exercise. With the rhythm of swimming, it’s very zen like. Swimming is also about form so swimming in the correct form is also zen like. The jog walk I do is on the cliff walk. Very nice ambiance. And the iPod is a very lovely addition as long as it’s not depressing music.

    beat myself up over 0 days, not likely. I had a phone nurse through my insurance –I told her I’d come to the conclusion that exercise just to exercise — is going to have me jumping on and off the wagon. It just isn’t natural for me. So i have tried to get more exercise in my daily life — doing normal things. I do some things the hard way on purpose ( like gardening with very few powertools) .
