Most people assume I don’t work out! Well, that might be true actually because I can’t remember the last time I did any physical activity to keep fit. I’m a strong belieber believer in ensuring that my body is fit…huh! Take it from someone who loves junk food – the irony, I know! Personally, it’s never about losing weight or getting a flat tummy. It is more about being active and alert plus it helps me get clarity and peaceful mind. There’s always this fulfillment I get every time I workout, am I making sense? I really don’t know how to put it but working out is so fulfilling.
Today, I told my cousin ( who BTW attends the same University as me) I plan to join the school gym as of tomorrow (Monday) and she was like,” Don’t you know the gym was closed because it’s under renovation?” (Haha, that’s enough evidence for my latest unfit lifestyle).
I was a bit disappointed, so I had to think of what else I could do to keep me physical active. Most people recommended planks, skipping rope and push ups from the house but the thing is, it never works for me… 10 push ups and I’m like I need to wash utensils or should I cook supper first? Omg! I need to change my bed sheets or I spend an hour searching for inspirational workout music…haha, don’t blame me I just get distracted easily.
So I came up with a few activities I actually enjoy doing that I could substitute for not being able to go to the gym:-
I remember I used to go swimming almost every Saturday. Aaaah! Good times, well that was in 2014!!!. I’m not really that good at it but an hour of swimming is good exercise, right?
OMG! I really like going on hikes. The last hike I went, was a group of 6 people it was enjoyable and the whole week my body reminded me how the hike was “amazing”. That happened in 2014!
Hmm! Running isn’t something I would do by choice. It kills me for sure, so I mostly do 10 kilometre walks.
Coming to think of it 2014 was a productive year for me, Maybe I can make 2016 better by starting small with these minor physical activities, do you think so too?
Over To You…
Any exercises or physical activities you’d recommend?
Till Next Time,Bye!!!
