Okay, here’s the reality. I love exercise, but I don’t love every form of exercise. I love dance classes and I love walking outside and I love cross country skiing. But when it comes to the treadmill, I have a feeling very much like the cats pictured above. “Hit it! HIT IT!” I hate the treadmill with a deep, abiding passion. And for me, even five minutes on that thing can feel like torture.
That’s why it’s so important to explore different kinds of exercise before you get too deeply involved in an exercise program. If the only exercise I ever did was on a treadmill, I would say that I hated exercise. And if the only exercise I could ever do was on a treadmill, chances are, I would quit. Because I HATE the treadmill.
That’s why I often say, that exercise is kinda like sex. If you hate it, chances are, you aren’t doing it right. You need to try different things, sometimes a LOT of different things until you find the one that is right for you.
So my little Chicklettes, be bold and adventuresome! Try a new form of fitness in the next few weeks. Who knows, it may become your favorite. If not, you can always smack it like the kitties do.
