Exercise is not something I'm driven to do every day. I'd rather sew. I'm learning that it's important & very much needed in my life though. I always start an exercise program when I want to lose weight. Then I give up after a month because I haven't dropped 10 pounds. Also, I use the excuse that I want to have another baby as a reason to not exercise. See, another pregnancy will wreck my body again, so why not wait until I'm done having babies to go through the work? I know. I know. I know just how ridiculous it sounds.
Well, I've been exercising steadily again for the past month & a half. I'm feeling good. I'm down a couple pounds, but I feel strong. This time I am using Jillian Michaels' dvds & I really love them. They're hard, but I like that.
Last night Dylan told me that he could tell that I hadn't worked out that day. I was totally shocked at this. He said that when I've exercised, I carry myself a bit differently, like I'm proud of myself.
I hadn't noticed it, but it must be true if he can sense it so well. And you know what, I am proud of myself! I'm proud of myself for having done bicycle crunches, squats, shoulder presses & 27 push ups!
It makes me happy & so I need to remember that it is important to have it in my life regularly. And if my body so happens to respond & change shape, that will be awesome too.
Also, just so you know...really cheap, I mean cool people store their dvds in old shoe boxes. :) Do you exercise at home as well? Which dvds do you like to use?
