I am going to be perfectly honest. I HATE it! I do feel good when I work out and I like THAT but I don't actually enjoy working out. Every day when I know I need to do strength training I feel this sense of dread, but when I'm done I feel better. I'd like to get to the point where I enjoy exercising but I just don't know if that will ever actually happen. I just do it anyway, or I'm trying to.

i love it!! I think the key is trying to find something you enjoy. If you hate strength training then you might try doing circuit work to get in your strength training. I'm not a huge fan of just plain old strength but I love circuit training so most week I will do a circuit workout to get in my strength. I also love cardio so I will do a cardio workout and then afterwards try to focus on just one body part like biceps and do strength training for that body part. That way I don't have to do an entire workout of just strength training.

I totally agree with Melissa about trying something new. I was trying to do Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and just dreaded it every day (which eventually led to me not doing it...or anything for that matter). I bought a ballet based workout video back in December (pre-order) and was super excited to give it a try as I used to be a dancer. I have yet to give that one a try because I need to install my wall barre first. However, my mom got me 2 Leslie Sansone videos for Christmas and I just recently started doing those. I think they are really fun! I actually look forward to doing my workout (most days) now! I've still got a few days where I have to kick myself into the exercise room and get it done, but it's not near as bad as what it was.

You don't know me very well. LOL. By nature I am very very lazy. I don't think it would matter what I was doing, if it involved committing my time to doing something other than sitting on my butt, I will probably not like it. I don't mind playing games or something like that but I do not think I would get very fit that way. I just don't think I'd do enough of it to get the results I want.

I've often thought it's too bad surfing the internet doesn't count as exercise.

Me personally, I love working out. I always have, though, ever since I was young and taking dance classes almost daily.

I have to tell you guys something funny. I'm actually looking forward to working out today. It's not really because I enjoy it exactly. I just feel like I'm starting to make progress and want to see what I do and how I feel today. I may go back into dread mode though once I get closer to actually doing it. LOL.

Nope, I hate it, and truthfully I feel like crap afterwards, so that doesn't help. Everyone talks about how great they feel, etc, yeah not me. And I live where it's hotter than hell so I don't care what you do or what time of year you do it in, you're going to sweat your booty off. Somehow working out when it's 90-120 outside kind of loses it's appeal.

I'm right there with you, although I don't classify myself as lazy, just a) not enough hours in the day and b) I prefer intellectual things over physical things, or being productive (and I don't consider working out productive when I have a kid to care for, work to do, house to care for, meals to make, etc). Shoot, I rarely even sit down to just watch TV and do nothing else. If I'm watching TV I'm also making a meal, cleaning up something, marketing my company, or SOMETHING else. I don't ever just sit and do one thing at a time. So finding the TIME to work out is difficult for me and usually something else wins out.

You make me feel better because I feel the same way. Working out makes me exhausted and I feel like once I've worked out I don't have the energy to do anything else. Plus, I have 5 kids and a busy life like you, I am always trying to get one more thing done before I exercise.

It really depends on the work-out and the day. Some days I hate it, other days I love it.

It went well. I didn't make progress in every area but I did on my legs and that made me happy. I can't wait to see where I'm at in another couple months.

I love working out, I just hate working out in a cold garage. After about 10 minutes I warm up and feel great but its the first cold that I dread.

I do the eliptical for at least an hour 4-5 times a week. I am going to add in weights here soon which I LOVE. I LOVE feeling the burn. I know when it hurts those are the ones that count most. I sound weird panting and groaning lol but my husband usually cheers me on (we work out together) and he always says "Thats what I want to hear, push it." Its great for motivation.
