10 - Today I am thankful for my body. Sounds strange I know, but 3 months ago I decided to get serious about working out. But it took over 2 months for me to get serious! I thought paying for the gym each month might make me more accountable. I started with a weekly Pilates class that I look forward to all week.  It took a little while for the rest to kick in, but for the last three weeks, I have been serious. I have been taking these Strong classes and they kick my butt every time. But I find that I am looking forward to them all day long the three days each week that I take them! I used to work out a lot, and I have dabbled in and out for the last year, which many of you know. But I think I found the kick for me. It's a struggle to push my body to the next level, but I feel so good when I am done and I am already in just three weeks starting to see subtle changes taking place. So today I am thankful for the body that is pushing me through this and enjoying the hard work! Tonight it's beach walk night. I'll walk about 3 miles or so and it is so hard on the sand, yet so refreshing! Oh and did I mention, I haven't had but a handful of headaches in the last three weeks? Hmmm is there a connection? I think so! Wish me luck for continued working out success! Should we start a club and help hold each other accountable?

  1. You look great! and of course, headaches and stress can be relieved with sports, because now your body has a way of releasing the tension... I know I feel better when I work out so I do regularly, but to be honest, I HATE physical exercise when it's not functional (biking to work, running for the bus etc). So you are right to be happy with your body. :) Good for you!

  2. That's great you've gotten on a schedule! I wish you good luck! I love exercise's effects on my body and attitude. Unfortunately I'm bad at sticking to a routine. Maybe we should make that club! :)
