I really wonder if you could like it if you found an activity that really appeals to you. It definitely helps if your group (if you take a class) is fun and the people are easy to get along with.
Oh, I used to enjoy dancing forty-some years ago. But a 63-year-old widow just doesn't go somewhere dancing alone. Actually, at this point I hate even going out of the house. I'm a loner. And every minute I spend exercising, I see as a minute I can't be doing the sedentary things I truly enjoy doing.
I think my best hope is not to find something I "enjoy" doing, but rather to find exercise I can do just as a habit. You know, a person doesn't think about whether or not they ENJOY washing their face or brushing their teeth. They just do it. I'd like to be able to do that with exercise at home. That way I don't have to spend any more time at it than necessary, yet it would get the job done. But it will take some time to see where it will best fit and to establish it as a habit.
Okay, now I'm off to do my 30 minutes of exercise.
