Working out.. um, no thanks!

I've come to the conclusion that I am obsessed with the IDEA of working out. I think about it and plan it all the time. Hell, I even have subscriptions to Shape & Self. I read and cut work-outs out to follow, but never actually do! When I actually get down to the whole "working out" part of it, it bores the hell out of me!

I'm not a big fan of sweating. I know that sounds so superficial, blah blah blah! I just can't help it. I'd rather stay in the air conditioning and breathing at a normal rate. Does that make me sound like a snotty bitch? God, I hope not.

I seriously think though, it's because right now in my life, I have ZERO energy to work out. I keep telling myself that once I finish school & am only working instead of work AND school, then I will be able to work out.

If only I had a work out buddy. I'm the type of person that needs motivation. I can't just do it on my own. How sad!

I see people running, jogging, biking, etc. on my way to work & part of me is envious. I want to be working out right along side them, getting healthy, being in shape. However, the other part of me says EFFF that!

What are your thoughts on this? Are you a hardcore gym rat? Or are you a lazy girl like me? :)

HA HA! I can relate totally! You just have to find a type of exercise you actually like! For me it was yoga.. I don't mind getting sweaty and breathing heavy because I LOVE IT! A workout buddy helps too.. I find that even with yoga I am MUCH more motivated when I have a girlfriend come with me!!

I HATED the idea exercising. I still hate running.
I was also in the same boat as you. I have 12 hour days and get up at 4:30am so I was not into spending the time to get in shape, even though I wanted to. Like the person above said, you have to find something you enjoy. I really enjoy yoga and started CrossFit 2 months ago and am in love with it. Both of those finally got me active again.

I hate being sweaty too. I get self and always intend on using the tips...but I never do, haha! I have the gym class calendar on my fridge but somehow have only made it to yoga 3 times in the last month. I completely relate!

I like the IDEA of working out too! it sounds like a fun healthy thing to do I just don't have the energy or the stamina to go through with it. I like to think about it and I admire the cute little exercise garments, but that's as far as I've come so far. Come to NY and we can be workout buddies!
P.S I gave you a little award on my blog! Congrats!

I am a very lazy girl but I think we are just making excuses. I've always said that once I move out and am just working, I will pay for a gym membership and go but I have a feeling that once I get there, it will not happen.

Just found you through Jo-Jo, you have such a cute blog!! and this post made me laugh :) I like working out, but I haven't always - I just need to mix up my routine. I recently wrote about a new Yoga class I discovered.. it's really fun and going to classes are a great way to meet 'work out buddies', and provide a little discipline. If you pay for it, you feel like you have to go.. Good luck!

Just came here through Jo-Jo's blog. Cute blog! Yeah I like the idea of working out and getting in shape and being SKINNY, especially since I'm getting married this fall, but I'm like you... I'm lazy :( Maybe one of these days. My fiance told me to try on my wedding dress 1 month before the wedding, that way if I have to lose weight fast he'll run my butt off (he was in the army, he knows how that works)

I think about it all the time too! It's an obsession. An obsession I rarely follow through with. Every week I say "Oh, whatever! I'll start Monday!" Monday comes and goes. HA!

You guys are so awesome. I'm glad I'm not the only one who just daydreams about it but never actually does it, HA! I do enjoy yoga, so maybe I'll get back into that. Jo - if I'm ever in the NY area, I'll let ya know so we can workout, lol. :)

I came across you post this morning and related 100%. Up until about six months ago I was just like you. Have you tried the dance fitness programs? I came across, Flirty Girl, Hip Hop Hustle, Hip Hop Abs and fell in love! I also started working with people in accountability groups online. Having the accountability made a difference of night and day!
