"Where there is no struggle, there is no strength." - Oprah Winfrey
As I was reading Coach Nicole's reasons to exercise and she mentioned strength, I immediately thought of the physical aspect of it. I am not into high intensity workouts (at least not yet), nor do I love working out, but I do love how it makes me feel. I lost 60 pounds and gained 25 back. While there were some changes in my meds and I wasn't being as vigilant about my diet, I stopped exercising completely. I am now convinced that, for me, mental strength is even more important. The ability to work on keeping yourself healthy day in and day out requires mental toughness. Maybe this time I should focus on that and everything will fall into place!
