Why should another miscellaneous blog be added out on the web? Well, this one started out for motivation purposes only. I live out in a rural area and finding exercise classes can be a bit of a challenge. I do best with exercise if I am tricked into it. Some people love to exercise. Me, I hate sweat - with a passion. I do best when I feel like I am doing something fun that just happens to be good for me. For example, with yoga while I am working some muscles I am stretching something else. With a Zumba class, I can feel like I am just dancing to good music. Unfortunately, most of that isn't easily available where I live.
Mulling this problem over in my head I came up with a solution - Netflix. We already have an account with them and they have various exercise videos. Why don't I go through their selection? That way I can try out new things and get some exercise.
One problem with this solution, I can be lazy. What is my motivation for getting these exercise videos and actually doing them instead of letting them sit by the television for several months collecting dust? I know, public humiliation! I'll tell a friend that currently blogs and she will keep me honest. If I haven't posted in awhile about a new DVD, I'll get a friendly phone call or e-mail razzing me. Solution found to the problem!
However, this would mean that I would just add a post every two weeks or so. Hmm... Why not blog about other things that matter to me? My husband has recently been diagnosed with a wheat allergy. I'm still learning how to bake and make desserts for him. I might as well blog my results on this, too. For that matter, I could make this like my journal and write about various things. Why not? Well, we'll see how it goes.
