fitness & adhd.

Fitness.  It haunts me.

I really enjoy working out and being active.  That's the crazy part.  Unfortunately, my ADHD prevents me from enjoying most "free" activities.  Like walking.

The boredom from walking alone will put me into a coma.  I can play competitive sports all day.  I am one competitive chick.  There was a time, years ago, that I would meet up with friends after work at 7pm and play sand pit volleyball until 2:00 and 3:00am.  I require a much more social approach to fitness.  Either that, or a more fun a game.

In a perfect world, I would go and purchase the arcade game of Dance Dance Revolution and put it in my house.  No lie.

FACT:  I look THIS awesome when I play.  (
I absolutely love to make a fool of myself playing that game.  I have a long list of friends whom I have forced to humiliate themselves right along with me.  It's a must.  The best way for a group of girls to get over themselves and just have fun.  I have the knack for not taking myself too seriously.

But not only is it fun, DDR will put the smackdown on you and never apologize.

I need that kind of approach to fitness.  Any donations would be appreciated. ;)  Until then, I'm off to the gym...


  1. I'm the same way. When I played roller derby, I was active 3 days a week for 3 hours a session. Now I'm lucky if I can force myself to get in the car to drive to the gym. Something that helps when I do get there is listening to podcasts! Makes it a little less boring :)

    1. You played roller derby!? That's awesome. Something I've always wanted to do!
      I currently reward myself with a specific show on Netflix as long as I'm on the treadmill. :)
