Faithful readers may recall that I've participated in any number of fitness activities with varying degrees of success. My best experience was the tennis team I joined for two years. A great group of ladies and a great way to work out. The cute outfits helped too.
Unfortunately I am one of those people who do not feel energized by exercise. I feel even more tired. Tennis worked out because the practices were in the evening and Saturday mornings. Otherwise with an early morning workout I'm really unable to get through the day without massive doses of caffeine.
Now that the pool is open I'm hoping to go swimming regularly. Perhaps a sign of how adverse I was to exercise was that last summer, when I was on maternity leave (free time) and my sister-in-law stayed with us (childcare), I didn't go swimming once. Granted, I was post-partum. Well, I'm not anymore, and I still haven't gone swimming. Our schedule is so packed in the evenings - with cooking and eating dinner as a family and getting Baby Z ready for bed, the pool is already closed at 9pm. Even if it were open I'm just so knackered at the end of the day. I make up for it by waking up early (to tidy up somewhat and get organized for the day including packing lunch) so I don't even get enough sleep. Gah.
