[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
I went swimming tonight after work. I like the idea of swimming but when I actually get in the pool and do laps, I remember that it bores the pants off me (not literally, thank god). After about three laps, I start watching the clock. Every minute takes forever.
Next time I decide to go to the pool, I must remember that. Swimming is fun when it's for fun, but for exercise it's the pits.
Now I have to go eat. I've had dinner but I'm still starving. Swimming does that to me.
According to a recent article I read:
Good point Debra, although at least it's a healthy appetite and not just a craving for junk food.
I think it is important to find an exercise that you really like doing. I hate doing things that are a chore. Don't blame you for being bored with swimming laps.
Swimming is definately a loner sport. I used to swim when I was in High School for years and trained every morning and afternoon. But I do remember always feeling like I could eat a horse and chase the jockey!!! It is good for you though. Uses every muscle so really tones you up well. XXX
I'm with you on the swimming...doesn't do it for me either.
Just remembered - it's called deep water running
I used to be a comp swimmer too, just like Jodie, and I remember I used to be starving after every session, yet if I run on the treadmill for 2 minutes (yep - 2 minutes) I can't eat for an hour. Weird.. Just did a big catch up and the study on the diet follow ups is really interesting. And it would make sense. Who honestly could live their lives being deprived of anything? If you follow a healthy-ish, balanced diet which incorporates treats as well as whole foods you are more likely to be able to stick to it longer term.
Jaykay, I want to do deep water running but the only place I know that has it is the Albert Park aquatic centre and that is too far away.
