After the holidays and two weeks of either being hurt or sick I pretty much feel like a slug. I had a dream last night about running. I don't run, even when I am exercising. I'm never going to run. My old lady knees and hips couldn't take it. I suppose that the dream is my subconscious telling me to get off of my ass. I know that I need to move more when I actually WANT to exercise. As we all know I hate exercising. I've written about it on more than one blog occasion.
Okay, so the general consensus is that I need to move more and eat better and probably stop watching so much HIMYM. But what am I going to do? I bought a Groupon for hot yoga a couple of months ago. It's for 20 classes and expires at the end of February. I should probably use it but that would require going to classes with other people.
Other people are the reason I don't go to gyms. I don't like it when other people see me sweat, or do any sort of physical activity for that matter. I'm not sure if middle school gym class is the reason that I feel like such a spaz whenever I do anything that could be construed as a little athletic or if it just has to do with the fact that I am generally a klutz. I also feel like people are judging my inability to look graceful doing just about anything. I can walk with heels on pretty good but that's about the extent of my gracefulness. It's weird because I was a cheerleader for four years. You would think that I would have some kind of hand eye coordination and that my fear of doing physical activity in front of other people would be nonexistent. Interestingly that is just another anxiety that has grown the older I get.
1. Drink 100 ounces of water per day.
2. Exercise three hours a week.
3. Do 15 squats every time I go to the bathroom.
4. Use the yoga Groupon - conquer that fear
Maybe using the yoga groupon will help me get over the fear of working out in front of people. Either that or I'll have a panic attack. I guess we'll see.
