I Hate Working Out

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 102 People

    Ugh

    I really don't like to work out purposefully. It just drives me nuts. I can play tennis or some other outdoor activity, which will not make me think "I'm working out, I'm working out". But the routine stuff, I can only do for a week, then it becomes so tedious and makes...

    I'm athletic. It's kinda required with all the

    martial arts I do. Before my injury I had one day off from tae kwon do, Sunday. Every other day I'm teaching or taking one or more classes. This kinda contrasts with the title of the post but I'm not finished. I don't mind physical activity but what I've seen of working out...

    Lacking Motivation :(

    Ok, so here goes. I'm 5'1'' and 130 lbs. That's a little too much for my height. I used to be 110 when I first started college in 2006, and maintained it pretty well (staying between 110-115 on avg) until March 9th, 2009 when my bf of 3 years dumped me, and I went into this...

    Ouch It F... Ing Hurts

    I've been really depressed lately and I was getting really tired of feeling like this so I decided to stop sitting on my *** and feeling sorry for myself. I started jogging and walking a few miles a day and getting up early in the morning to work out. I heard that exercise helps...

    I wish for the day I enjoy working out.

    But I don't think that day will ever come. Not until I want it for me. I feel I'll never want it for me because wanting to be skinny is about wanting to fit in with society and wanting to be loved. If it was up to me i'd stay just the way I am. Then I think to myself, it shouldn...
