Well, I have yet to find any exercise that I really truly LIKE. :) The closest I've come to enjoying exercise is in karate. I like the effects of exercise. I like the endorphins, and feeling strong and fitting into my clothes better! But I really, really, really don't like doing it. Is this unusual??
Kelly, swimming isn't a good option for me because I have a really bad reaction to chlorine. I only swim when I feel like losing the next few hours to nausea and headache. :(
I think that your experience with Pilates is fascinating. I've never tried them but maybe I should. Right now I don't have back pain, but that's because I'm seeing a chiropractor twice a month. Pilates might be a cheaper solution. ;)
Day 8 goals:
Water - 100 ounces
GS - yes
Exercise - shred level 1, 5/3 lb weights (using heavier weights on the first set, lighter on the second.)
Notes: knees are starting to "pop" and ache a little. Will ease up on full squats for awhile and maintain static lunges instead of moving ones.
