thoughts on exercise.

here are some of my thoughts on exercise...

i have many friends who work out for hours a day. i have oodles of friends who are joined to a gym and go there after work every day to burn calories... i have read so many blogs about people who have workout schedules and routines.

i have been on this weight journey for 10 years... and if it is one thing i have learned...i have learned that losing weight has more to do with what you eat than how much working out you do.

i understand that working out is great for your mind. i totally agree! i understand that working out is fantastic for your heart... and i can't agree more...

but do i need to KILL myself for my mind and heart to be healthy. my mind hurts sometimes at the thought of getting off the couch and going for a run!

i have never had a gym membership and i don't think i ever will... it seems easy to go for a walk somewhere whether it be a neighborhood, a park or the building i work in...and these new workout dvd's are awesome! i don't need to join a class... i have my instructor right on the television... money saved!

motivation is what seems to hold me back though. my friends have a gym bag packed and head right to the gym from work... i head home, sit on the couch, and take a nap... hoping with the weather getting nicer that i can feel a little more motivated to get moving a little more...

so to wrap up this jumble on my thoughts on exercise:

*i would rather eat healthy during the day than do a work out.
*joining a gym would waste my money.
*a nap comes before anything else in my life.
what are some of your thoughts on exercise?
