Biking and other adventures in exercising
Exercise is a hard one for me - I don't really enjoy gyms. If I try to make myself be a gym person, I know it won't last and I'll be back on the couch before I can say "free weight." I'm whiny, bored and too spastic to be able to enjoy an hour at the gym 3 times a week!
So I'm trying to mix it up. Nightclub Cardio on Wedensdays (a dance-type of aerobics class that's really a lot of fun - I was surprised how much I enjoyed it!), the gym on Fridays with Mandy (who is very motivating and has some fresh hell to put me through each week) and once a week on the bike (to work and back - about an hour). I'm slowly adding one more day of either walking or hitting the gym for the treadmill or elliptical, but honestly it depends on the week.
I like the freedom to do different stuff and still have it be healthy, not obsessive trips to the torture palace (aka gym). What about you - are you a gym rat? Do you LOVE Pilates? How do you stay healthy?
