I Don’t Have to Like It

I am not, nor have I ever been a fan of cardio exercising. As a health care provider, I understand the value and importance of incorporating cardio into a workout routine. This doesn’t mean I have to like it!

With the new “normal” we are all living, we have had to adapt our entire life around sheltering at home and social distancing. Being an avid gym rat, my life revolved around going to my favorite gym every morning and throw some weights around. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, I did a small amount of cardio as well.

I have done more cardio exercising over the past 3 weeks then I have over the past 5 years combined. We have all had to find different ways of working out at home, which includes taking walks, jogging outside, weightlifting using different household items (the dog, the cat, the kids). I have even found myself doing more arm curls with my favorite beverage in a 12 oz. can.
