Do you exercise?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering how many of you exercise regularly? I used to do alot back in my 20's. I used to run several times a week, do aerobics and lift weights. Now, I just enjoy being a little more lazy. I do still walk because I enjoy that, but I really have no set schedule anymore.

Well, I am a blackbelt in Tae Kwon Do - so no need to answer if I do exercise.

Either way - my home workout is normally an intensive one - like 20 pushups (if I am lazy that day.. but I don't like much that part). Abdominal exercises numbering in the hundreds per day (There are cases of 400 per day). And I am exercising also with 15 lb. weights for my hands. 5 lb weights for my feet. Plus jogging.

Plus my TKD classes three times a week.

I try to go to the gym at least twice a week. I used to go more, but I'm getting lazy!! (I'm 32 by the way!)

When I co-op (every other school quarter) I work out at least 3 times a week - weight training and aerobics, running if it's warm out. During school it's a lot harder to fit it into my schedule...and when it does fit I tend to be lazy because I can.

I try, and have been doing really well lately. I do all sorts of things - aerobics, yoga, sit-ups.

I exercise everyday. I do a callestenics routine in the morning that is based on this routine we had to do in JHS PE. It has always worked for me. Then later on in the day I do an aerobic workout of somekind. I want to get into weight lifting to tone up but I'm afraid. I don't want to get bulky. I think its ugly when women are all muscley and gross looking like those women body builders. I want more of an Aaliyah type look.

I do boxing and kickboxing. My aunt made me go to a self defense class with her a few years ago and I liked it so I signed up for classes in both. If I'm not punching a bag around, I do Pilates just because its challenging to get into some of those positions and its less strenuous. I love to exercise and look forward to it every day.

Yep, I jump to concusions and run off at the mouth.

Ohh, you meant REAL excercise? I wish I did, I keep trying to get into a routine, but it is not happening. I need to get more dedication, or something.

I do yoga regularly and go to the gym 3-5 times a week for the ellyptical machine. I also enjoy walking the beach but not so much for exercise as for the beauty. I agree that exercise makes me feel good! It clears my head and really gets my day off to a good start!

I used to do a lot of aerobics but have let this slip. The only exercise I get now is walking, which I have always loved. i agree that exercise makes you feel good.

Since I work in a wearhouse I am walking over 5 miles a night and lifting 50+ pounds over and over again. and the sad this is that I work with Medical records......but you'd be amazed at how heavy those things can get!!!

I always do something, I call myself moderate but consistent. I mean nothing killer, but always something. I have a nordic track machine and I use it in front of the boob tube for like 20 minutes. it' s a good workout. I also ride my bike on weekends for like a half hour. I used to belong to the gym, but I found when my work schedule changed I was only going once a week so I found alternatives.

I also am a big walker, I walk whenever I can. Even things like I park about 15 minutes away from my office at this one lot and so I have that walk in the am and on the way home. I like the route I walk, nice trees etc.

I know I'm healthy even if I don't have buff biceps or anything.

I'm doing the puppy workout - have baby gates on many doorways and we have to "hurdle" over them from room to room. We also go for long walks everyday. I've lost 10 pounds since we got them in late December! I'm terrible at exercise programs.

I think this thread should be reported for using the ex***ise cussing word! Well, in my house it's a rude word, anyway.

Great thread!!

I exercised regularly after graduating from college; then lost interest and coasted on my youthful metabolism, then worked out (weight training) with a personal trainer for several years, at home, with my husband. Then I became an animal advocate and age began to catch up with my shape. I have to work very hard to get enough exercise time into the schedule. (VinceNeilsGirl, you are not likely to bulk up and look muscly -- did I spell that okay? -- doing weight work! Believe me, those pro bodybuilders have to WORK to look like that, though I know, I wouldn't want to look "all muscle" at all either).

Exercise is a MUST for me when I start to feel upset or tense. It's amazing how much difference it makes in your mood, isn't it? I find things like reading Shape or Muscle and Fitness magazines very motivating to work out; and ummm, this thread has also worked. Gotta go treadmill now!

I hate exercise!! I hate it, hate it, hate it! And I get angry with myself because I know I need it. My blood pressure and cholesterol are high and both would be under better control with less medication with exercise. But basically all I do is walk back and forth from my computer room to my sewing room, where I just sit some more. The only exercise I get on most days is walking up and down the stairs, as my computer and sewing rooms are downstairs, and the kitchen and bedrooms are up. Occasionally I do some yard work or vacuum, which provides more exercise. I just wish that I enjoyed doing things which involved more exercise, as I just can't see the point of exercising just to be exercising. I want to accomplish something in the process.

Just what would it take to get me motivated, anyway?

Excercise That's a really bad word JK Reallly I try to take my dogs walking as much as I can at least 3 times a week. But right here lately I haven't been able to since I had surgery 2 weeks ago and Nakita is having problems with her hip. No major excercise program for me, just walk and enjoy the dogs company

I've never been a fan of exercise. I really need to start hitting the gym, but if I could only find the time to do so. Right now, I'm putting in anywhere from 50 to 60 hours a week at my job so my spare time is quite limited. The only thing that keeps me in shape is the fact that my job requires me to walk close to 6 to 8 miles per day! Wow....that's close to 40 miles a week! No wonder my poor feet hurt at times!

Exercise? What the hell is that?

I hate the word - don't even know if I spelled it right

The only exercise I get is grocery shopping and playing with the cats and my nephews.

That comment almost made me choke on my pepsi girl

I have never exercised, I hate it. But I have started walking regularly over the past 2-3 months. I did really good at first, walking at a fast pace for 2-3 miles every morning. Then it went to every other morning, and then every 3rd and so on. I am trying to get back into the routine, because it did make me feel good afterwards. I have been jogging a little too. I didn't realize I was so out of shape until I tried to jogging. I did manage to make it jogging a mile this weekend, which is very impressive for me

A whole mile! That's great, Squirtle!

I like to lift weights for exercise. I don't like cardio too much though. It gets boring very quickly.
