Any advice on staying fit, fellow wapchan citizens? All my hobbies, as well as my job, involve sitting on my ass, so I really need to do something. I want to live more healthy rather than get a sixpack or whatever.
>>34 Take this with a grain of salt but I heard having a walking routine everyday can help,maybe you can start there?
>>35 Yeah, I planned on doing something like that. The thing is, I really hate "exercising for the sake of it" I get tired of it quickly. Jogging or walking? I can do that for 2 weeks before I just stop. Lifting in a gym? 4 weeks at most before I hate it. The optimal way for me would be integrating it in my daily routine. At my old job I used the bicycle to get there and always used the stairs etc. instead of the elevator. Can't do that anymore as I'm mostly working from home now. I will try to think of something else.
>>36 Maybe join some kind of sports club? I get that probably falls into your "exercise for the sake of it" but I imagine having a goal of some kind would also help you want to do it more.
>>34 Try hiking meet ups or just going out to the mountains/woods with your bros. Getting out into nature is enjoyable and good for your mental health as well.
>>37 >Maybe join some kind of sports club? What a coincidence, my brother asked me if I want to go swimming with his family once a week, for improving health, just as I wanted to. It's just a bit difficult to schedule it, everyone prefers a different time/day. But I think, even if we don't manage to go together I'll go swim by myself once a week. I can go there by bicycle and the 2hours ticket only cost 3€ thats not much (considering the times we live in). I didn't mention it, but money is an issue so yeah. >>38 This also sounds pretty interesting to me, I also want to meet new people so that's a cool idea. I just don't know where to find groups like that, I'm not in any social media...
>>39 Nice coincidence there, anon. Hope you enjoy swimming, I always liked it back when I did it as a kid and as a young teen but as I got fatter I never really wanted to show my body and never liked going there anymore. Sure, people don't give a shit and there's probably tons of boomers there with worse bodies but it's still a personal thing for me. Slowly changing that though! The only exercise I do when I get the time is walking up and down stairs in my flat close to midnight. 14 stories, 10 times. Around 2000 steps going up and 2000 going down, been doing it infrequently since last year and it's been a really good way to exercise for me. I've also recently started listening to audiobooks while I do it, one hour of an audiobook (1.5x speed too) over 3-4 sessions a week means I can get through books in a month if I'm consistent and gives me a reason to exercise some more. Currently listening to Crime and Punishment and so far (Chapter 4) it's been an interesting read (well, listen). I've also started thinking of buying some leg/arm weights to assist in the weight loss, but haven't decided on it yet. My friend also gave me a dumbbell that I've been lifting occasionally. 4 exercises of 3 sets of 10 reps means I probably lift it around 120 times? Nothing special, but being an amateur at it I'm hoping there can be some improvement if I'm consistent with that and eat some more protein. Still, enough hijacking the thread with my life. >I just don't know where to find groups like that, I'm not in any social media... Maybe check around your community centers for any flyers for things like hiking, or just googling around for things in your area should help you a bit. Could also check the local university (if you have one) for things like that as well.
