I used to think of exercise as a pain, and sometimes I still do. But the definition of exercise is really broad, covering any physical activity--and depending on who you talk to, mental exercise counts, too. Personally, the best I've ever done with routine exercises was with Wii Fit. No kidding, I lost fifteen pounds doing that the year I got married.
But it was back to being a pain. When it's winter, and I'm stressed out from work, I don't want to do anything but sit on my rear and play video games. I get in some exercise in the morning, taking the kids on a walk, doing jumping jacks and such, and I've been to the gym a few times. But really, exercise for me is all about summer. The weather doesn't make my legs ache, and there's outdoor swimming. Swimming is one of the best exercises you can possibly do, and it's always fun as long as no one 'dunks' me. (If you do, I'll never swim with you again--dunking is NOT funny and NOT a game. It's like choking someone, got it?)
I'm soooo excited for the weather to be warm. Exercise+Summer=Swimming=Win. What are some of your favorite exercises?
