End Of The World Is Near





I joined a gym!

I decided to do something about my back pain.

It hasn't been easy since the last time i exercised was ... well .. never.

And i discovered people haven't been lying to me all those years. It does feel good!

So im hoping ill stick to it.

I don't work out on the machines though. Its just too boring for me!
I mostly take classes, like aerobics and all that jazz.

I prefer riding a bicycle outside than going to the gym any day, but im waiting for the weather to get better.

What about you guys?
Do you prefer outside activities or indoor?

I can't do outside workouts, I'm now doing yoga! I created this routine to do yoga + cardio + strenth all in one hour.. Unfortunately I didn't start it yet!! LOL!! But I am doing yoga!

~the first hour after a good workout is amazing :p you get really high!!

October 5, 2009 at 12:25 AM  

give me outside activities anyday! AND any other country! :-p

I haven't been going to the gym for a few weeks now... and a few months before that!!
but once I get a car I'll start going again... and I do prefer aerobics classes to the other stuff and all that folk rock

October 5, 2009 at 1:16 AM  

it depends on the weather, etha kan zain outside o etha kan 7ar indoor bas aham shay ena i do some kind of activity :p

Congrats and I wish your back pain is gone ^^ I like both but the weather here doesn't help unless if you want to go swimming :P

try raising the chair when your at work. your patients, not yours. works for many.

October 5, 2009 at 6:51 AM  

good for you =)
its about time..

i love out doors activities =)
i cant stand the gym and the equipments!!

October 5, 2009 at 7:06 AM  

Good luck with that!

I prefer walking bil mamsha than on a treadmill :P Bas i've never done the bike riding in public thing:P maybe bel 7oosh with my little brothers bike though :P haha maybe :P

Definitely outdoors...I never could workout on a machine... Any sport that has a challenge will do for me... Just do not force it.. stick to these rules..

1. Do something

2. Do something you like

P.S. This worked for me ... Exercise your back then stretch ...

I would love to join a gym but I am always scared that I wont like it after few days.

October 5, 2009 at 10:12 AM  

I love walking or jogging in the fresh air but the weather doesn't always permit.

October 5, 2009 at 10:14 AM  

for a fact i hate gyms! i mean an indoor place stuffed with ppl on machines! it kills me!
okay i just use the treadmill n then bye bye!

i love swimming.. its my sport n super duper cure for everything.. i if i have any pains i swim.. then it vanishes.. coz u use all the muscles in ur body..

if i wasnt in the gulf i would have gone out for walks everyday in the morning.. or biking.. i love waking up early ..

October 5, 2009 at 11:56 AM  

I prefer outdoors.. but thats hard to do here since im covered and the weather sucks.. so im stuck with indoors

Good for you for going to the gym.. it really does make you feel good and refreshed at the end :)

October 5, 2009 at 4:27 PM  

outside is more fun

October 5, 2009 at 6:50 PM

October 5, 2009 at 6:55 PM  

I like working out, but it's difficult to make the time...
and outdoors are definitely better :D

October 5, 2009 at 9:53 PM  

3ad Im thinking of joining a gym, shaklech the one in Khaldeya, im thinking of something less looya

October 5, 2009 at 11:28 PM  

indoor classes. yoga and pilates are the best.. u really should give it a try.

October 5, 2009 at 11:53 PM  

I need to exercise too.. I know the feeling, when I did work out it was a disaster because I kept running out of breath! I do prefer riding a motorcycle :)

October 6, 2009 at 9:50 AM  

Wulla bravo 3alaich! :) Where do you bike? Usually there are too many pedestrians around, no?

Outside is SO much nicer on a good weather day. Plus I think you work up a sweat more outdoors and if you're walking it's healthier to walk on the ground than on a treadmill. Having said that, indoors and at home is great when malich 5ulg itshofeen nass.

October 6, 2009 at 1:10 PM  

good for u!
i hope tintiqilly il 3adwa oo i start exercising ..

October 6, 2009 at 3:00 PM

October 6, 2009 at 3:28 PM  

i have never joined a gym, but even if I do I won't get committed to going to it everyday!

October 6, 2009 at 4:16 PM  

outside ALL THE WAY :D

good 4 u dear :)

October 7, 2009 at 8:02 AM  

Welcome to the healthy world of exercising. You will find the good feeling after the work out very refreshing and addictive. Keep it up.

Myself I prefer indoor workouts. Frankly, Kuwait weather never helps any sort of regular outdoor activity

October 7, 2009 at 11:57 AM  

Wala ohwa always outside is better ya3ni playing koora is nice oo wala ana hamen ba3ed dashet gabl ermoothan oo kent meltezem BSs now kassalt :/
Bss keep it up sport is always fun

October 7, 2009 at 11:08 PM  

Good for you ;p

As for me, I prefer walking outside for 45 minutes daily. I'm fit yes, but being healthy is my goal. So to avoid heart diseases and diabetes I say exercise people exercise ;)

October 8, 2009 at 7:07 AM  

Outside, Cycling on the sea side in the winter is the best thing for me.

October 8, 2009 at 1:41 PM  

Good!
I hope u continue on that!
I'd go for the outzide activity juzt becauze the beach. It'z where I run, swim , play football.

October 9, 2009 at 1:29 AM  

ok, ur title threw me off ;p

is it certain exercises you did for ur back pain? I think i need some too. .

oh, and outdoor activities are so much Cooler 8)

October 9, 2009 at 10:45 AM  

Outside's always more fun, it feels more natural.

But, like you said, the weather and some people are annoying outside.

October 9, 2009 at 12:34 PM  

I wish I could join a gym, its all mixed here :( and yeah i find machines boring too!

October 9, 2009 at 8:20 PM

October 9, 2009 at 10:15 PM

October 11, 2009 at 12:16 PM  

I am trying to relate the title of the post with the contents. Maybe you can explain it to me.

I live in KSA and the weather here and the environment does not encourage anybody to do any outdoor activities. so I'll stick to the gym (when I go)
