Exercise - Why is it so hard?

Well, here I am, day two after making the decision to become a new, thinner me. I'm sitting here thinking I really need to get up off my duff and do a little exercise. I can't do much to start with, but I have to start! Then come the excuses, my knees hurt, my back hurts, I'm tired, and on and on and on. So, here I sit. I really hate to exercise, but I know in my head and my heart that you can't lose weight without coupling dieting with exercise. Why is it so hard to do, then? Who knows? I think if I can just do it the first time, it won't be so hard tomorrow. I don't have the excuse of it being too cold or snow and ice on the ground, not when it's 67 degrees out.

I am heading for WW tomorrow, but am actually starting today watching what I'm eating, journaling, etc. I know the routine and, starting today, I'm back to following it (except I haven't eaten anything for breakfast and that's not good).

Teresa, go eat and then go exercise!!!!


  1. Good for you for going to WW! (I'll comment when I get up to that post.) I walked today, and it was 29 degrees F. The dogs make it *so* worth it. I (sometimes) find it easier to exercise if I have a reason - today was a walk to the library. In summer, I bike to the grocery store (towing a kid cart to hold the groceries).

  2. I'm pretty sure exercise was invented by the devil.
