This is not a post about a miracle, one size fits all exercise program. It is also not a post about a great exercise that will make your stomach flat in a day or make you lose 10lbs in a day. This is instead a post about realizing that there are many different forms of exercise and different exercises work for different people. Similar to the fact that not one way of eating is right for everyone. As a dietitian a major pet peeve of mine is the one-size fits all diets, people are different and different ways of eating and even different foods work better for different people. It seems like every week there is another book written stating that everyone needs to eat this or that to be healthy, or that this food is bad and this food is the best. It drives me nuts. But anyone, that's a whole other topic and I could go on and on about that.
There are lots of people that LOVE going to the gym, they may enjoy being around healthy, like minded people, or they may like the social atmosphere, or they may have even found an amazing instructor that really gets them motivated and excited to exercise. Unfortunately, when I have joined gyms in the past, none of these worked for me. When I joined gyms in the past, I always seemed to have to force myself to go and I would find once I was there I loathed every minute of my time there.
Since we have moved to the country I have finally found an exercise program that works for me, that I am able to follow and most days really enjoy! Gardening, farm chores, tending to animals, exploring our property, are all things that I really LOVE doing. To be honest, I have NEVER worked so hard as I have since we moved here.
