When I made the commitment to get myself back to the healthy person I used to be, I knew that I needed to get to a point where exercise was not a dread, but an activity that I looked forward to and that my body craved.
I can say I hit that mark this weekend. It felt really good. It was pretty hot this weekend. After hanging in the pool for a couple of hours, I was not looking forward to getting out and walking last night thinking of sweating and the heat. However, after being inside for awhile getting somethings done indoors and watching TV for about 1 1/2 hours, I suddenly had the itch to go get my walk in. The itch would not go away. I finally went out and did a 4 mile walk.
It felt good. It is nice to know that the couch potato is leaving and being replaced by an active person. I need to remember this day and not go back to the couch potato.
