Exercising is a way of celebrating what my body is capable of!
Going to the gym or swimming or dancing my little heart out in class is not a weight loss thing for me.
But I guess I used to think that was what exercise was for - and that's why I didn't go...
Working out is boring and I don't need to lose weight - so why bother?!
It keeps me healthy and strong.
It gives me more energy.
It gives me 'me' time.
It 'empties' my brain of stress and worries.
It's social - when I have my buddies to workout with.
AND. I've actually found that it is fun - and not boring at all!
I am LOVING my active lifestyle - and I feel absolutely amazing! Not just physically - but mentally as well.
I jump out of bed at 5.30/6am - exited to get a workout in - and a few laps of the pool.
Since I've got into a routine with my fitness - my way of eating has naturally adapted into a healthier one.
I'm still a sugar addict (LOL)
Desserts are my weakness!
My 7 year break from the gym (from regular exercise in general) is officially over!
What fun things do you do to stay active?
Who's tried Pole Dancing? I might try that next!
"Let exercise be your stress relief - not food!"
Unless there's cupcakes (hehe!)
