Let me say that again.
I HATE WORKING OUT!!!!!!!!!!
You know that whole "endorphins make you happy" thing?
I have never experienced these so-called "endorphins", and they certainly aren't making me happy.
I have, on the other hand, felt like barfing after a work out. Or napping. Or barfing then napping.
You get the picture.
Unfortunately exercise is a major component in Parky's therapy. Booooo!!
Not that I'd ever let Parkinson's dictate my lifestyle choices. I only let vintage do that. Haha!
As in, "I will fit into that 28" novelty skirt, or so help me!!"
But since it is a recommended therapy, and being that I CANNOT live without vintage, I suppose I must exercise.
Not just any exercise though; Parky's requires exercise that helps with coordination and balance. Dance, boxing, and bicycling rate high on the best types of exercise for people with Parkinson's, as do Pilates and Yoga.
So I set out to research some of the finest workouts the internet and cable can provide. AKA I procrastinated.
Did I NOT mention I hate working out??
I do love to dance though. Dance plus working out equals A Cardio Party!!
Afterwards I was flushed and sweaty, and definitely did not look like a gorgeous Gil Elvgren pin-up. But I also didn't throw-up.
Progress Poodles! Progress!!
