A Must-See If You Despise Exercise

I hate exercise. I really hate exercise.

Yeah, yeah I know how important exercising is for us, especially as we age, but it’s just not my thing. I walk the dog every day (actually, I stroll with the dog), but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t count. I don’t drink alcohol (not even an occasional glass of wine), don’t smoke and I eat pretty well, but I’m also sure those wonderful habits aren’t a wash for the absence of aerobic and “weight-bearing” physical activity.

I usually make my way to the other side of the room when I sense an exercise evangelist approaching me. Not so with delightful Deb Horn, the first fitness professional I’ve ever encountered who has figured out exactly how to motivate women like me. And that’s a big deal. Although it’s doubtful I’m going to become an exercise fanatic anytime soon, I’ve actually started to follow Deb’s sensible program.

Deb and I made a two-minute video so I could share my experience with any of my FOFriends who would rather take a physics class than even attempt to do a pushup. If you’re one of them, do yourself a favor and watch.

    At 63 I have been doing a great job of maintaining my weight over the years despite a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I also exercise but it is necessary to find something that you not only enjoy but something to de-stress from the day. For me that is Pilates. Strength, balance, flexibility and de-stress all from the Pilates Reformer I have at home. Have not tried any supplements. Loved your video Geri! Very cute!

    Ugh,
    Exercise and weight loss ?
    Might as well hand me a violin and tell me to play it.
    But, this sounds like it might be worth a try.

      Hi Judy,

      You and I are two peas in a pod.

      Do try it.
