Yeah, I said it. Well, I didn't yet, but I will. EXERCISE. There, it's out in the open. Ever noticed that people are either obsessed with doing it or obsessed with avoiding it? I've been in the latter category most of my life. I figured all the running around that I have done after four kids in a row was enough exercise for anyone. Not according to my doctor and the other so-called expert types. Apparently you actually have to raise the heartrate for it to be worthwhile, not just the blood pressure ;)
That said, I've been exercising for a while now as part of my weight loss goals. I've been walking, outside when the weather will cooperate (I have a preferred 1.5 mile loop) and inside with WATP when it's rainy or too late in the day. Sometimes I will do both, yes, I'm a convert. A few days ago my kids talked me into trying their DDR game. Well! I found out that I can do that and burn off a bunch of calories, it will even calculate how many. I'm really really bad at the game but it doesn't matter, it's still fun.
Just kick me if I start waxing on about endorphins or whatever they're called, okay?
