Does sweating while sitting count as exercising?
Summer has finally arrived in California, after a long cool spring. The weather up until this past week was fabulous. Just warm enough. Our 90 degree temps have arrived.
I don't know about you, but hot weather saps my energy. I don't want to do anything.
Just thinking about doing something makes me sweat a bundle.
I did drag my sweaty butt to the gym every day but Sunday.
It was torture.
How do you gather up the energy to go when it almost hurts? Do you give up? What keeps you going?
I have gotten to the point that I feel guilty when I do not go. Even taking just one day off this week made me feel guilty. I think about the calories I will use in my workout. At 1100 calories for the hour on the instrument of torture, that's a lot of calories, not counting my weight training for 20-30 min afterwards.
I sweat puddles. You should see the wet spots on the floor around the machine. You should see my dripping wet T shirt. Yes it is literally dripping wet.
I keep telling myself it is worth it, even though my progress is slow.
