ok i have NEVER been one to exercise for the sake of exercising. it's not that i don't like being active - i just want to be active with a purpose. like when i lived in SW missouri and i did alot of hiking, rock climbing and caving - loved that! but exercise for exercises sake - so not my thing. i am suspicious of people who love to exercise as a hobby like my hubby and my friend across the street. BUT i decided a couple weeks ago that i need to do SOMEthing so i have been getting on the treadmill every day for 45 minutes. LONGEST most miserable 45 minutes of my LIFE! according to the treadmill i burn 260 calories each time. i don't even know if that's worthwhile or not but hey, at least i am doing something right? i always kind of wondered about people who would have towels nearby when they worked out in tv shows and stuff. like oh really? you need a towel? well let me tell you - that 45 minutes on the treadmill makes me sweat in places i didn't know sweated!!!! holy cow! so today i had to do it - get a towel to wipe my face and neck UGH! but i hope i can keep myself going. i know it is a good habit to get into...right?
