Help me Halla!
I dislike exercising. I hate jogging because even with a cast iron sports bra, my boobs hurt. I hate swimming because the chlorine burns my eyes no matter what goggles I use. I tried yoga but I am so inflexible I have to go to the remedial class. I have done aerobics and learned to be good at it but my knees seem to be punished now that I've entered a new decade (you know what I mean). I use the elliptical / treadmill / exercise bike but lose concentration and have actually tripped and fallen off. Walking is boring and even worse, when I take the dog - although I try to be a calm assertive pack leader, he pulls and pulls when he sees other dogs. But I do take him out three times a day I might add, half hour each time. He's a big dog, who deserves to be out, but I find it frustrating.
My question: is it possible to learn to love exercising? Am I doomed to never find a routine that I ultimately love to do? Do you have any suggestions? Am I just being a whiner?
And I have had a personal trainer before, who made me exercise consistently, but I just can't afford that non-stop. I just want to do something that keeps me healthy without a huge investment of $$$$ or takes hours and hours a week and that I actually ENJOY. What will work?
Or is exercise just "no pain no gain" so "suck it up princess!"
