Working out has gotten harder lately. It's cold and dark in the mornings and I SO don't want to drag my lazy behind down to the basement to get all sweaty. I used to look forward to my morning exercise. Lately I dread it.
So I'm trying to switch things up a bit to make it more appealing. This morning I did 15 minutes of vigorous bike riding on my exercise bike (how come I can't go that fast on my real bike??) and then I did 15 minutes on the treadmill, but the last 8-10 minutes or so I slowed down the treadmill a bit and worked with hand weights to tone up my arms while I walked.
After all these months of daily exercise you would think that I wouldn't be so wimpy anymore, but I'm still pretty wimpy! Five pound hand weights hurt after a while! My legs are tired, my arms are tired and I'm all sweaty but I completed my work out even though I really didn't want to.
So there. :)
