Chapter 7: Postponed

In The Lacie Chronicles by Lacie1 Comment

There’s a story in Greek mythology about a man who rolls a stone up a hill. Every time he gets close to the top the stone rolls back down and he has to start over. It’s his eternal punishment. I feel like this story perfectly sums up my journey with working out. Every time I feel like I’m about to …

Chapter 6: Ode to Nana

So, here’s the thing. Last week I decided it was time to increase my workouts. I wasn’t getting sore anymore and I’ve been feeling pretty good, so the timing seemed right. Oh, how wrong I was! Always do the Math! We have a couple of workout classes that come on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Recently, we’ve made their workouts harder to …

As I sit here eating Starburst jellybeans, I can’t help but feel accomplished. No, that’s not sarcasm. This week I’ve completely dominated my workouts! Tuesday I felt so good during/after the workout I actually ended up doing more than I had programmed. What’s happening to me?! Coming off last week, I didn’t know if I could keep doing this. The …

I think it’s safe to say we all like instant gratification. I can’t imagine someone not liking their hard work immediately praised. It’s the reason I love mowing or cutting hay; immediate results! You know what doesn’t provide instant results? Exercising! I would be far more likely to enjoy exercising if, after one workout, I could see a difference. Unfortunately, …

I’ve made a terrible mistake. This was my first thought when I put on my new rucksack with 20lbs in it. It’s definitely not what I was expecting. After walking around for all of three minutes, I took it off and sat down. That’s when I realized I have a lot of training to do before the 5k ruck in …

Chapter 2: Slow Start

It’s been a week since my first post. I’ve been amazed by how many people have reached out, saying they feel the same way about exercising. I knew I wasn’t alone! I might start an anti-working out group, where we all just complain about exercising while exercising. Seems like it could be a fun time. I worked out one day …

Chapter 1: I Hate Exercising

In The Lacie Chronicles by Lacie5 Comments

Hi, my name is Lacie and I hate working out. I absolutely LOATHE it. It’s tedious and boring. Oddly enough, I’ve spent the last 5 years of my life working in a physical therapy clinic, where we encourage people to exercise. I know the benefits of exercising. I know I feel better when I exercise. The reality is, I hate …
