Thankful heart

Wednesday, February 03, 2010

Little by little, every day I am exercising, building strength, stamina and endurance that I haven't had for so many years! An unexpected outcome is how much I'm enjoying the process!

Even though I'm over 50 I'm stronger than I was in my 30's. My sleep has been better as has my mood. Even though I have sore muscles after a good workout it's a good kind of sore because I know that my workout caused it. My husband doesn't have to give me foot rubs every night now.

I'm so encouraged and feeling very blessed that I have this opportunity to improve my health! An added bonus is the encouragement, friends, education and tools that I've so enjoyed on SP!

Thanks, friends, thanks Chris Downie for the gift of SP! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I second that feeling. I have NEVER enjoyed exercising before, but now I get excited at being able to add a new exercise or more minutes to my routine. emoticon emoticon
I even am excited that my part time job has turned into a full time job, only half a mile from my gym (Curves) and with flexible hours that allow me to continue going to Curves every day and going for a walk every evening. emoticon
Actually enjoying this Journey is a Blessing that I could never have predicted happening.

    How wonderful and boy do I relate. I feel better today than I did 10 years ago and that is absolutely a very good thing.

Keep up the good work - you are doing awesome.

Hugs, Sunny
