Confessions of a Fauf

My Own Version of Exercise

I decided to quit my gym membership. Earlier in the summer, they replaced my Tue/Thu afternoon classes (which I loved and had been faithfully attending for two and half years) with this new exercise program. I gave it a couple tries, only to find that I hated it and it aggravated my back problems. I decided to try some other classes they offered. I attended some morning classes during July, which were okay. But I realized once school started, there was no way I could attend any morning classes, and all the afternoon/evening classes were taken over by that new program,

So I made the step to cancel my membership and save $30 a month--now it's going towards paying off our fine art, which is much more enjoyable that hurting my back at the gym.

However, this does not mean I will let myself go--that is not Fauf! I've decided to discipline myself to walking or riding my bike for at least 30 min. everyday. I've also bought some dumb-bells to keep my arms toned--I can do this while watching TV. And of course I'll keep up my stretching.

So far, I'm doing pretty good. And it's helped having Michael or friends join me on walks and bike rides, etc.

Let's hope the Fauf can stay disciplined!

Exercise is more enjoyable with a buddy or good buddaleena. Having the Igmaster is a double win!
Perhaps another suitable class will come along later
that won't strain your back... Have a great week-

I admire your tenacity to keep exercising when your class has been changed. Keep at it!
