My name is Colleen Coble and I hate exercise. There, I said it. Oh the horror. I'm constantly surrounded by people who rave about how much they love exercise. And up to now, I thought they were lying through their teeth. But I'm at my daughter's and she has this awesome Pilates video, a Denise Austin one. I've gotten to actually LIKE it. No not like, CRAVE it. In fact, I'm often the first one to say every night, "Time for Pilates?" LOL
Okay, so I can't do all of them. The ones where you have to raise your legs and lift your back off the floor kill me. But with each session, I get stronger. My muscles are relaxed and warm when I'm done and I feel good, unlike every other exercise video I've done.
This pic is us signing the contract at the American Christian Fiction Writers
conference for Smitten
which we are all working on. And yes, we are writing our own personalities so Natalie hates exercise too. What do you think, girls, should I go back in and have her discover Pilates? :)
What about you? Are you a couch potato like me? If you are, try this particular DVD
. We do the first mat workout. I feel taller, with more elongated muscles. Do you have an exercise video you like? And what about that Zumba thing I've been hearing about? What exactly IS it?
