A lesbian wife and mother tries her hand at something new. Surely there is a hat that fits out there somewhere!

A Few Things Exercise Has Taught Me About Myself Friday May 28, 2010

Filed under: Daily Life,The Runner — The Professor @ 11:02 am
  • A combination of sweat and sunshine is very, very good for my soul
  • I have control issues (surprise, surprise)
  • There is no chance that I will ever become a gym rat – something about the gym environment is aversive – NOT a fan
  • Years of regular exercise does not change the fact that baby got back – I think this may just be the way I’m made and I’m pretty ok with that
  • My primary obstacles are mental and not physical
  • If money (and to a lesser degree time) were limitless I would do Bikram yoga every day – I LOVE it.  The ritual, the breathing, the heat, the blissful sensation of surrender, collecting hard evidence that I am unbelievably powerful just as I am
  • Long, slow runs feel more natural and satisfying to me than shorter, faster efforts
  • Loud music allows me to make it through a strength training session
  • Baker is an excellent accountability buddy – I owe a lot to that boy
  • No matter how many conversations I have with myself, I would rather do just about anything than do a workout on the elliptical (SO unbelievably boring)
