I Hate Exercise!
There is certainly truth to the commonly held belief about exercise that "You'll be so glad you did it" or "you'll be happy when you're done." That conviction keeps me coming back. That, and the knowledge that muscle burns calories for a long time after the exercise is over. I ask myself what my motivation is, and it's simple. I want to feel better. Winter and I are not the best of friends. It plays tricks on me and makes fat deposits when I'm asleep (never mind the Philly Vanilla ice cream). Winter robs me of energizing sunshine and lulls me into unconciousness with its early-arriving nights. It has made me a slug.
I like Power Bar. I'm surprised that I like it, but there it is. I have to look at Cardio Core as the penance I'm paying for tolerating slugness for too long. If I can get through Cardio Core one evening a week, I'm a better woman for it.
