The sky must be falling!

Something is wrong. I mean really, really wrong. Why, you might ask? Because, after spending the majority of my life rebelling against the notion of exercising, I am starting to come around to the idea… and, even more surprisingly, actually getting excited about it!

No, seriously.

I mean, I voluntarily joined a walking group.

I am shopping around for an elliptical machine that I can use when I can’t get out to walk.

I just ordered a Fitbit so I could track my progress and be motivated to improve.

Worst of all, the notion of me, some day, actually running didn’t make me curl up my lip in disgust.

I think I must be dreaming.

    What a good feeling!  Congratulations on the breakthrough- this is super exciting to hear and I hope it just takes off from here for you.  It’s like a gift to be excited about exercising, isn’t it?!!

      It really is! I’m not sure why, but I’ll take it!

    It is kind of scary isn’t it.  I started doing Jazzercise on a fluke some 20 years ago and even though I don’t Jazz anymore I still exercise.  It became such a part of my life that I have to do it now.  Have fun.
