Exercise is officially my enemy.

The other day at my health checkup, the doctor told me I had to:

a) gain weight

b) exercise

..wait ar.



No mosquitos to be found/zapped despite thorough racket waving around my room.  Damnation.  Very dissatisfied and itchy.

Anyway, the doctor said I had to exercise to increase bone density so I could avoid osteoporosis in my old age.

I am very afraid of this!  Actually I am scared of all classes of diseases and my number one feared disease is diabetes.

Cos I have seen my grandmother inject herself with insulin everyday and it scares the bejesus out of me ok!

2nd most feared disease is Alzheimers.  Which we suspect my other grandmother has got.

(wow what a gene pool wtf)

So last Sunday I coaxed Tim to go jogging with me. (and thank goodness nobody else as you will see later)

Put on a tshirt, put on my shorts.  Tied up my hair with a no nonsense rubber band.

Hunted around for a pair of sneakers.  Found an obscure pair of fuchsia Tommy Hilfiger shoes bought during the phase when every single item of clothing I had had to be pink.  Totally forgot about them!

Put them on, waved bye to skeptical mother and followed Tim out of the house.

Ran to the end of the road.

I thought I might die.

How do people do this?  And how do they do it for fun!

I wanted to give up right there but I didn’t want Tim to think I was a useless wimp!  (what he doesn’t know won’t hurt him wtf)

So we kept running for about 20 torturous minutes.

Sorry more like he ran and I walked fast wtf.

He literally ran circles around me.  He’d run then jog on the spot while waiting for me to catch up.  Then he would run around me while I struggled with my life.

Finally I couldn’t take it anymore and suggested that we headed over to the park.  Tim continued to run around the park while I sat on the swing and contemplated taking my life waited for oxygen to seep back into my cells.

Tried swinging myself for a bit but felt ten kinds of nausea so I decided we should head home.

I guess I could live with an easily shattered bone or two.

    If you do not prefer outdoor exercises (in order not to get tanned wtf), aerobics and workouts also work right? 😀

    maybe you can try skipping instead. Its easier than running. All you need is a skipping rope.

    ROFL. I love your pic. You are too funny. But I understand your pain. I still can’t jog for the life of me but I love the group fitness classes at the gym. Maybe try a pay-per-class thing first. And I agree with missyfeisty. Yoga is awesome. Really builds strength too. Will help with the bone density thing.

    I also cannot run one. Too heavy. I don’t know la, I run then I feel like dying. So I usually go for brisk walking la. But now that I’m back in uni, I walk a lot cause I walk to all my classes.

    After two months break, on my first day back to uni, I had to rush here and there to get my stuff settled, I almost fainted. HAHAHA. Stamina totally tarak liao. But slowly la. You do bit by bit and soon you’ll build up your stamina and you’ll feel better. I still walk around to build my stamina. In hostel, to go to toilet, I have to walk to the end of the aisle (I’m the other end) and then climb one flight of stairs. A lot of walking here.

    You don’t have to go jogging, right? You can just do 5-10 sit ups (increasing as you go and if you feel comfortable with it) or a few push ups.

    Short 10 minute home workouts won’t leave you [contemplating taking your life] low on oxygen 😀

    I hate exercise too!!! My friend recommended me to do some real simple exercise. It’s sort of like yoga but much simpler than that.

  • Cher Wee

    change from running to other forms of exercise if u think it is a dull activities.. dance is a nice choice since it comes with music..

    dont give up!

  • melody

    hahaha u look so cute in d last pix

  • Shirlyn

    Lols…funny gal… don’t worry I share the same experiences as you too after a 30 minute jog..and by jog i mean walk.

  • Mindy

    at one point when i stopped exercising and started exercising again i felt like how u did. haha!

    but the key is to start with maybe 10 mins, the nx time 15 mins, and 20 and so on and u’ll get the stamina for it.

    after long u’d think that 1 hour is just easy peasy heh.

  • Magnolia

    Why dont you try swimming instead?

  • http://molife.iambrianwong.com crappy booze

    jogging is a good cardio workout (think heart diseases). You can also try swimming (IMHO, best overall workout). Or go for yoga – stretching regime!

    Either one will definitely test your will power..eeeek!
