Because I will tell anyone absolutely anything, you are well aware of the changes I have been going through. It has been, ahem, enlightening, to say the least. For me.
I have taken a hard look at me. And some of what I have seen has left me less-than thrilled.
But some other things I am grooving-on, and my counselor tells me that I need to lighten up, Francis.
The things about myself that I don't like, I am actively working to change. Which doesn't mean I am on the road to "perfect." That'll never happen. Thank God.
But if I can manage to be authentic, all the time, now THAT I am OK with. I am having some growing pains. They look a little like crazy. OK, maybe they are crazy, but I am pretty benign in my nuttiness.
So, about those things I don't like.
Heh, there is quite a list there, and I won't divulge all, but one of them is the lack of activity in my life.
I have gone to gyms, and worked out, and while I LOVE to lift weights, I absolutely despise going to the gym. There are really no words.
Keep in mind, I used to work out next to the Bella Twins, and that was, shall we say, a tad disheartening.
SO in winnowing down what I want to do, I am making a list of what I absolutely, positively, do NOT want to do.
And this is where I need your help.
I don't want to go to the gym.
I will only run, if someone is chasing me. And they are Armed.
I don't mind hiking, but if it's too hot, it ain't happening.
I don't love yoga. And hot Yoga is a complete non-starter. I have it in my head that it smells like butt in there...
I am not a joiner. Group stuff doesn't interest me.
OK, that's the short list.
How do you get exercise, and enjoy it?
That really is the key for me. If I dread it, I won't do it. I am much like your average toddler, in that way.
What do I like? The ocean (but I can't go there everyday, due to time constraints.)
I like shooting stuff. (Inanimate objects, only.)
I like to explore.
So how do you gin up enthusiasm?
What is fun for you?
I will try almost anything. Almost.
But not this: I'd laugh so hard I would strain something, or knock out a tooth.
