Sometimes I go through spurts where I just truly desire working out.
It is weird but it happens every so often, so when it comes I try and take full advantage of it.
This week has been one of those 'desire to work out weeks' so tonight after dinner I decided to pull out my ole trusty jump rope and burn a few calories. I was on a pretty good roll and took a minute to stop, open the front door and yell to Luke:
"Hey you should really come watch me, I have some swift-jump-roping-moves just like Rocky"
It was at this moment that I realized our next door neighbor who we have never spoken a word to after living by each other for a year, was standing outside her door was now looking at me.
So I of course broke the ice by saying:
"Hi, I decided to jump rope tonight"
To which she replied:
I'm pretty sure we are on the road to becoming BFF.
After my strenuous, 5 minute workout with my jump rope I decided to go on a quick jog/run.
I started jogging outside and realized that the heating was kicking my butt so I jogged straight to the treadmills our apartment offers for free (a perk to living in the ole APT).
It seems that I always go through a season of life where I try to become a 'runner' but I always end up as a 'walker'. It is very frustrating to me.
It may be that I just don't have enough will-power but I think I have never gotten into the 'routine' of jogging (this does not count my freshman year when I was obsessed with it, this is post obsession)
So I have a question for all my friends that have found a good routine.
When do you like to do your jog/run?
Morning? Afternoon? Before dinner? After dinner?
In the past I have always done it after dinner, but sometimes I feel like it isn't the best time.
So what works for you?
Also, I HAD to stop and get a diet coke on the way home from work, but I let the ice melt so then it was like half water/half diet coke. So it still doesn't count right???
