ANYBODY CAN!!! Let me repeat, if I can do it, anybody can. I am not kidding when I say this. My Aunt Patty said it best this past weekend, "you used to be kind of a couch potatoe." I love you, Auntie. those words were never so true. Used to be... And I really was a couch potatoe. "Honey could ya get me.." were spoken so often that I think every other sentence started that way.
Ask anyone who knew/knows me. I hate sweating. Feeling that salty liquid forming on my body, ewww. Worse now it actually drips off of me. And when I run and breathe heavy out my lips, sweat mists off my upper lip. It's just plain gross! And yet, I countinue to exercise and push my body to its limit. Why?
Why? is really a great question. I love the results. I love how I feel afterwards. And not just physically. I feel great emotionally. An added bonus, since I have fought depression for most of my life. Diagnosed Manic-depressive at 16. It's why I was such a couch potatoe in my past. But running and exercise gives me such a high that I can push out those depressive thoughts. So again, if I can do it anybody can.
And I am in love with http://www.prevention.com/. Its My Health Tracker is totally awesome! My GG member and friend just told me about it. It is a food journal, exercise journal, weight tracker, measurement tracker, just about anything tracker. It graphs all of this for you. I am excited to start journaling again. Check it out and let me know what you think.
