My name is Nicky and I don’t particularly like exercise.
I have no wish to run a marathon, nor will you see me taking part in an iron-woman challenge any time soon (though I do have a great deal of respect for anyone who does!)
So, why do I do it?
Well, what I DO like is feeling fit. Being fit enough to play tag or a bit of footie with the family (and give them a run for their money!) or to cycle up a hill when we go out biking.
I continue to do it because it helps keep me sane.
It all started because I wanted to change my physical appearance (post-baby bingo wings, amongst other things).
I like feeling OK about my appearance and comfortable in my clothes. I like being able to eat cake from time to time and enjoy it without the guilt pangs – likewise with a glass of wine (or two!).
Do you need any more reasons?
So there you have it. For me it’s about feeling fit for life. Whatever it has in store.
