I seriously hate exercise. All my life I’ve been waiting for that pill that would allow me to eat what I want, as often as I want, and sprawl on the couch as long as I want without gaining a pound or negatively impacting my health. I think working out should be something I have to do only when I feel like it.
For example, I used to run and I loved running. Running is the only exercise I’ve ever enjoyed. Anything else feels like work. Then my knees stopped cooperating. I had arthroscopic surgery on my right knee a few years ago, and now my left knee seems to be demanding similar attention.
I refuse to go to the gym, so while I’m waiting for that “no more exercise” pill to be invented, I downloaded a few workout apps onto to my iPad. I work out to them at home while I’m watching TV. It’s the closest I can get to doing nothing, without actually doing nothing. The thing is, these apps provide a pretty good workout…if I set them to the highest level and for longer than 20 minutes.
I was complaining about hating exercise the other day to a spinster friend and she was in full-on agreement with me. She said, “Hating exercise is the only reason I can think of to get married. Ever notice how women gain weight (I’m paraphrasing here) once they take on a husband? I guess it’s ok to ‘give up’ once you land him.” I laughed…even though I know it’s not true. Well, it’s kinda true, but not true enough to be a truism.
Unfortunately, I can think of too many women who did not gain the ‘marital spread’ …but it’s kind of amusing, anyway. Plus, it didn’t help that I knew she was talking about a particular married lady…the one who’s married to her ex-. This woman really did pack on the pounds soon after she got married and she used to be a fitness fanatic. Go figure…
