Who knew it would be so hard to exercise when you never leave the house, LOL!!
My exercise pre-Islam consisted mostly of stretching and swimming. I would do extensive stretching each day (about 30 minutes) and when I got to the pool I would swim about a half mile in laps. This is not feasible anymore because women-only gyms are not very popular in the US yet, unfortunately. At ones with swimming pools...
Post-Islam during University it consisted of walking around campus for classes. I had to park my car 15 minutes walk off campus. There was a 5-10 minute walk to each class. They call our campus "the hill" so you can imagine it was a quite vigorous walk..
Post-University it has consisted of... nothing.
I figured that stretching is something I can definitely do in the house so I have started to stretch again every day.
Also, I talked to a new sister that I met (mashaAllah she is super sweet!!) who gave me some good exercises I can do inside my living room, YAY! These thinks called "burpees" which involve a lot of jumping and kicking, jumping jacks, squats, and running in place for now, but as I progress I will add more inshaAllah :-D
