    1. I don’t work out in a gym because true strength and stamina come from real work and manual labor. Half the people you see walking around with big muscles aren’t as strong as they seem. Building muscle in a man-made place and then never doing anything to maintain strength is stupid. You don’t have the stamina as someone who really “works” “out” (a.k.a. works outside). On top of all the hard work I do living on a farm and living in a poor family, I do run a lot and do things like lunges, sit-ups, push-ups, pull-ups, crunches and squats. You’re talking one chick you don’t wanna mess with, here.

    2. I always hated sports with a passion when I was in school. I dreaded cross country day, and I’d just stay at home to avoid it if I could. I had bad throw-catch reflexes, and was a pretty slow runner.
      I’d get sore sides after just a few minutes of jogging.

      Now that I’m homeschooled, I actually would like to be more fit. I started using this weight lifting apparatus we have at home, which is a bucket full of rocks on this pulley system thing.
      I have a bit of arm muscle. I also cycle more now.
      I like to excercise moderately because it makes me feel good about myself, I feel accomplished.
      I will probably end up feeling tired, but I really like feeling like I’ve accomplished something.

    3. I’m a dancer, so basically everything I do to workout is geared toward dance. I take classes at least four days a week with 6+ hours of class and rehearsals on Saturdays and private lessons whenever I can fit them in. On days that I don’t dance (and sometimes even on days I do dance) I workout at home doing crunches, sit-ups, weight lifting, theraband workouts, and LOTS of stretching, which is my favorite part because it’s more “dancy,” whereas weight lifting makes me feel weak because it’s hard, crunches and sit-ups make me feel manly, and theraband workouts are just down right boring because I basically move my feet back and forth against a stretchy band for thirty minutes.

    4. I love exercising! It makes me feel so much better and actually helps to boost my self-confidence! I run for about 15 minutes a day (I’m trying to up that a little bit) and I play volleyball and basketball. Pick-up basketball is my absolute favorite way to get exercise, however. 😀

    5. The type of exercise I do the most is just taking walks around our neighborhood or hiking through foresty areas. I also do the Wii Fit and exercise to workout videos with my mom. 🙂 I did gymnastics when I was little for six years, but once I quit, I got out of shape and gained a ton of weight so my mom and I started exercising more. 😀 Competitive sports isn’t for me. There’s too much pressure and I like to go my own pace, especially without a scary coach yelling at me, haha.
