Some exercise advice

I am at a healthy weight right now, and am trying very very hard to focus not so much on the numbers on the scale, but the way my body looks and feels instead.

I enjoy exercise, but often have a hard time keeping it from being "self punishing". I want to workout to be healthy and toned and feel good about myself, not because I "feel fat" or feel like I ate too much.

I was hoping to get some personal stories/advice about what exercises you have found to be... not triggering, I guess? Or some advice on how to make exercise more of a health benefit than a form of self punishment.

Thank you so much for any help.
