Exercising

I found it really hard to get back into my exercise routine this week. After having 2 weeks off and not doing very much strenuous exercise, I sure had to take it slow. I mean I was walking A LOT in Disney World, but that’s nothing compared to what I normally do every day.

So my routine is usually 2hr 40min straight cardio where I am sweating like a pig. I don’t stop for breaks either. And then I do my stretching and abs and stuff. I usually work out 3hrs a day. A lot, I know. :o But it’s just become normal for me. I don’t really think about it anymore. Anyway…I had to slow it down on Tuesday-Friday. I worked my way up (time-wise) and by yesterday, I was back to my normal routine. I even went for a run today because the gym is closed.

It felt so weird to not feel as confident in myself while exercising. I felt out of shape, which I haven’t been for a few months. It was disheartening. I mean it only takes a little bit of time to get out of shape, but a whole lot more to get into shape. Ick. I hope I never get as out of shape as I was again. :unsure:

    I know exactly how you feel! I didn’t exercise (like I was used to) for nearly two months, because we were moving and painting and things like that. I was doing something every day, so I wasn’t just sitting around, but I felt so out of shape when I started again. I am never going back to the way I was before, not when I know how hard it is to get in shape!

    But 2 hours and 40 minutes every day, what do you do while exercising? Do you listen to music or watch something, or just exercise? I get impatient quickly, so I need something to distract me :oops:

    2 hours and 40 minutes of exercising??? I can barely get through 45 minutes!

    You’re a better person than me. up to 3 hours a day is a lot. Are you pairing it w/ healthy eating? It’s the best way to get good health, and not just lose weight. :)

    I always feel that way when I don’t exercise ): I hate running and all that so I decided to take up tennis lessons. I enjoy it and there’s lots of running too so I get a bit of both. At work, my colleagues and I play badminton for at least an hour everyday so that’s great too.

    good luck!
