Working out sucks

I have never liked working out.

Ever!

In elementary school I used to get made fun of when I ran so I always got to sit out because I was "sick"!

But now I am almost a quarter of a century old and it's time I start working out. I have a high risk of developing Type 2 diabetes and I have Fibromyalgia.

I know if I worked out most of the pain would go away because my muscles would be stronger.

I lost nearly 70 pounds all from just taking a little pill for my migraines!!! The only bad thing about that, I didn't work out at all while I was losing my weight so now I have an apron of skin around my belly! And to top it off my boobs deflated! They are enormous yet I can't see my nipples. I can't fix either of those from working out, so it's super discouraging!

I do think I found my saving grace, though!

Just Dance 2!

I do the calorie burning routine, and the hardest one at that. I even try to go above the recommended amount of dancing. I usually end up working out about forty five minutes and don't even realize it!!! How great is that?

I swear by Just Dance 2, now I really want Zumba!!!

I have a question though? Why is it, that I lost 70 pounds and I still feel fat? Is that just a woman thing or is it just me???? Here is a picture...

I guess I just feel really bad about the flap of belly skin!!!

I will look decent before summer, my son is the biggest water baby you will ever meet!!!

  1. Hi there! Thanks for following over at Flip Flop Reviews. Yay for Double Duty Divas!! :)

    I hate working out too...I really want to try Just Dance. It looks like so much fun. I have a belly skin issue too... my daughters were just under 10 and just under 11 pounds each and no amount of working out is going to take that extra skin away. It's a little bit better after a few years but I think it might be as "nice" as it's going to get at this point.

  6. We have the Dance game for the Kinect and I haven't even tried it yet!! I've thought about it, I've watched my kids do it, I've even walked in the living room intending to try it and haven't. Working out is something I can not stand but as I get older I notice it is something I will HAVE to incorporate into my life whether I like it or not. :/ boo.
