I have a dirty little secret to share with all of you: I don’t exercise. Ever. It’s probably been about five years since I really did anything physical.
With each passing year, however, I know that I should really do something to change the way I behave (I’m a pretty severe workaholic. I bet those of you who know me are surprised I admitted it, but it’s true!) and take care of my body better… because while I’m kind of thin, I also get winded after a couple of flights of stairs. Not cool and definitely not healthy.
It’s definitely time for a change, and I’m ready to make it. After all, I want to start out the next month right! So, I have a proposition for those of you reading here today: at least one of you has to love working out (or you do it frequently enough to know a lot about it).
I’d love to hear your tips, tricks and favorite workout techniques. Since I know less than nothing (I’ve only ever worked out for unhealthy reasons, and I don’t want to do that again!) about fitness and health, I figured there were no better women to come to about this than our readers and friends here at The Fashionable Housewife.
So, what’s your favorite type of exercise? How do you refuel after you’re done (since I’m pretty sure my dinner of Goldfish and Thin Mints probably isn’t one I should keep pursuing)? When do you find time to fit it into your busy, child-filled schedule? And, more than anything else, how do you stay motivated?
If we can get my tush into gear, I’m hoping that I can prove that even someone who is fitness-averse like me can get into shape and be healthy!
