An exercise post(weird huh?)

Greetings blogfriends. It is a wonderful day. The sun is shining. Everything is screaming to me:Go to the beach. Skip your class. Have fun.
But i won't. I will go to my class, study, sing and then i will work. And then study some more. I am not nagging. I am writing all this with a smile. Because in a week i will not have to work as hard. The wedding will be over. My exams will be over. And i will have more "fun" time. I can't wait!
I have to admit though that this year i have n't pushed myself as hard as usual. I could, but i did n't. I did n't stress over my exams, or what should i wear at my civil wedding, or other stupid things like that. Greekwitch 1- Stress 0! Yeih me!
As i already told you there are many things that helped me fight stress. But i think i forgot to mention exrcise.Have i told you i started kick boxing? I do not go to a gym. I work out at my home. I used to kick box in the past and now i am trying to remember the moves and find my groove back. It is so much fun. Especially to fight with other people(not full force of course!). I do not believe it is an "un-wiccan" activity. I have only hurt myself by mistake. What do you think about it? Do you work out? What do you like to do?

Being one of the least sportive persons on the planet, I have come to appreciate weight training and jogging and swimming to increase my mental and physical health. Currently I am experimenting with the schedule - from "jogging in the morning and weight training in the evening" I have reduced it to "jogging and weight training alternately in the morning", so I may have more time for writing after work. This means, I get up an hour early to get enough exercise. Woohoo me!

A colleague drags me to the pool once a week, in addition. I find it makes me less nervous and puts me in a better mood.

You're not fighting other people (even in fun)...you are exercising and enjoying the movement of your body...nothing un-wiccan about that...

I think the discipline required to do any martial arts activities is very conducive to witchcraft. Martial arts are very much about defence rather than causing harm.

I'm a wanderer by nature. So I wander with my exercise too. I like yoga, golf, walking, belly dancing, hiking and whatever else I feel like trying.

Glad you are winning the battle with stress!

I think it is wonderful:-) There are Wiccans in the Armed Forces, and they hurt of keeps, not that they necessarily want to hurt or kill of course, but I digress... You doing this for exercise and even if you "fight" someone else, it is done in good faith and thus still good.

I think we should be "work-out partners per say...you know inspire each other.

I'm not very disciplined with exercise - I just never have been 'into it'. I do yoga a few times a week and I do like to walk. Walking combines everything for me - exercise, a chance to get some fresh air, see different scenery and if I'm not being hounded by kids I can even get my camera out!

Gardening ... digging holes, filling them with plants (my favorite exercise because it's so zen). :-D

I've done all sorts of exercise in the past ... yoga was probably my favorite occupation at the gym. Now I just greet the East each morning with stretches ... being a woman of a certain age I feel it's better to not push the body quite so hard as I've always done previously.

Running and dancing are my favorite exercises. Like you, I refuse to go to the gym. I will not pay for something I can do myself for free, call me cheap or careful, you choose your "c".

Kick boxing sounds so cool!
