This week’s Friend Friday is all about fitness and exercise.
I used to play sports back in school, and even took a hip-hop dance class. Now, my routine isn’t as structured…
1. When you hear the word Fitness what do you think?
I think of someone (male or female) who fit, a healthy weight and comfortable in their own skin.
2. Do you have a workout routine? What’s your favorite way to workout?
I walk A LOT. I play volleyball at least once a week, and attempt to do other activities through the week as well, like tennis, bowling or swimming. Usually I fail and just chase my cats around. They’re hard to catch sometimes!
3. To you, what is the purpose of exercise?
To maintain a healthy mind and body. I don’t think you have to be 100 pounds to be healthy or fit. I know plenty women (myself included!) who are NOT that skinny, but are fit.
4. Do you think it is possible to be feminine and still workout?
Yes, as long as it’s not overdone. I equate femininity with curves. I like being a girl and looking like a girl. I wouldn’t want a six-pack or gross zombie arms like Madonna has/had.
5. What do you think about the people who are workout obsessed?
There is a difference between someone who regularly goes to the gym to maintain and someone who over does it. I don’t like body-builders, so if you look like that, you’ll gross me out. But muscle definition can be attractive, on a man. I also think we, as a society, are constantly trying to improve ourselves, and being gym obsessed is just part of that.
