Happy Monday everyone! I want to thank the beautiful Tia of The Chic Stay at Home Mom for pinning this on Pinterest. It is so me!
So lately I’ve noticed that
damn near every A LOT of my friends are adding running to their fitness regimen. Some time last year I thought, heck I’ll give it a try! I downloaded about 50 10 different running apps to help prepare me to even run a marathon. I’ve seen people running and it seemed like something that I’d enjoy and would get me in good shape. HA! That lasted about a month before I couldn’t take the pain of stupid shin splints and my doctor even said that with bursitis in my knees running was the last thing I needed to do. You know it’s bad when a doctor says don’t do it.
But after reading online about how to deal with shin splints and training the body slowly to avoid trauma to my knees I thought I’d give it another try. I can honestly say I don’t like running. Wait…we are being honest here. I HATE running. There is nothing enjoyable about it. And how the hell am I gonna get in better shape if I loathe what I’m doing???
Which brings me to today’s question. What is your favorite exercise? For me it is doing Zumba or any type of group dance aerobics. I can’t explain how much fun it is to shake and shimmy my bootie to some ratchet music. And the best part is that I’m sweating up a storm, burning calories and having FUN! This week I’m hoping to add weight training to all this cardio so if you have tips on how to start a weight lifting plan, please let me know!
